If the amp provided sufficient power and control, the Audium comp 5 (starting from 2000 euro, pair price) also for large jazz ensembles such as “Ray Sings, Basie Swings” in a series with far larger and more expensive boxes filed himself.
The name Audium had previously been for HiFi fans a good, but not too well known name: with ambitious tube amps, the Berliners made so far of talking. That you do now “in wide bands”, is there not a coincidence; especially since Audium-chef Frank urban for many years with his boxing brand Visonik successful was. At Audiums comp 5 but has been thought completely new: the 3-inch (7.5 centimeter) little paper wide strips replaced midrange and tweeters with neodymium magnet system and allowed to play in its tubular inner housing to about 250 Hz down. Not just its volume is completely decoupled from the bass enclosure, you bought an own, painted baffle him. The entire bass range an oval bass chassis of the mass is 6 x 9 inches, the quasi Downfire woofer in the base of the slim box is mounted.
Hurry with while – weren’t the thing of the Audium speed and hustle and bustle. For one, it requires some care in preparation and Angulation – in the AUDIO listening room’s sounded rotation opposite to the base side wall remote and with 10 degrees at homogensten.

If the amp provided sufficient power and control, the small comp 5 also at large jazz ensembles such as “Ray Sings, Basie Swings” in a series with far larger and more expensive boxes joined, without losing wide ribbons typical homogeneity or the breaks between the two clay to be ear-sniffed. Only with overly complex classical noticed a slight narrowing of the presence area of strings and voices, also let it at the energetic “Teen Town” (weather report, bass fire, Zounds) tackle too relaxed.
