The first hearing test to confirm seemed the optical allusions to high-quality PA-chassis: the audio essence (from 5700 EUR, pair price) can especially gigantic Los rock.

The essence, which is latest Scion of the specialist in the U.S. State of Utah TO audio, not to recognize, as broadband concept from the outside he looks but as a slightly bizarre combination of professional bass and Ribbon tweeter. First, who interpreted the diagram or the measurements, recognize the idea: the measured 25 centimeters, hard hang paper cone is a fullrange up playing to about 9000 Hz. The developer, deliberately chose a so large model in efficiency and bass to be competitive. And that’s without having to put on the usual high impact grade Peakern bass horns: the essence shall settle over with a conventional bass reflex. Only that works here not a pipe, but a complete current slot in the base of the box, which can also lock on Room acoustics demand according to the manufacturer.
The fullrange hangs without switch directly to the amplifier, which benefit the damping behavior. The frenulum, which measured approximately 5 x 1 cm Metal membrane completely is crossed by the stream gets its signals only via high-pass, and that only from 8000 Hz – is strictly speaking only to a Superhochtöner, which should compensate the declining levels and the increasing concentration of the bevelled without intruding itself in the voice or throat area. Is not a coincidence that the box as high builds: at a level between the clay she plays most balanced because there appear minimized interference.
The first hearing test to confirm seemed the optical allusions to high-quality PA-chassis: the essence can go especially gigantic rock. With an impulsive bass unaffected punch and clean differentiated directness she put listeners in deep purples “Lazy” (“Machine Head”, DVD-A) directly in the Studio, where the drums Los crashed and the Marshall towers Brat, which helped to keep the stuff.
Even though the volume of already clearly above reasonable settings, it remained clean and clearly, how even best horn-loaded PAs may never make it. Her bass Foundation was although tired, but never softened, added more harmoniously in the rhythm. A sound image, as it fits logically less classic: At j. Ostrich ‘Gipsy Baron’ Overture (Karajan) impressed because more dynamics and fine detail. The instruments were all something to directly, the edge of the stage close to the listener, the Hall of space slightly torn. Fears that such a concept should change color, not confirmed: Although just acoustically recorded voices sounded at times somewhat closely, voluminous Microphones such as Jackson Browne (‘time the Conqueror’, Ryko) but tired and full, this brilliantly nailed between the boxes.
