Fri, 20 Mar 2020
The new Beethoven Baby Reference and Beethoven Concert Grand Reference loudspeakers are the culmination of a three year effort by founder and designer Peter Gansterer to deliver the most life-like musical performance with convincing scale from a relatively compact enclosure.
The new Reference loudspeakers deliver high efficiency, outstanding dynamic range, excellent low bass extension and ultra-wide bandwidth to produce music on a completely believable scale and transport the listener to the live performance.
At the heart of the design are brand new Composite Cones featuring Vienna’s patented spidercone driver technology. The new drive units are comprised of two distinct cones, a flat main driver and a smaller woven fabric inner section. With near perfect symbiosis between the center section and flat area, the Composite Cones deliver outstanding transparency and phase accuracy. This combination was chosen after exhaustive listening tests for its ability to create authentic tonality with a smooth coherent presentation.
A one inch soft dome tweeter is capable of revealing even the finest nuances in a most natural way, while imparting no stridency at all and extending well down into the midrange spectrum.
A new cabinet bracing design ensures that all the impulse energy is dissipated evenly resulting in reduced cabinet coloration and a smooth, even frequency response. The cabinet is an example of the most advanced European joinery technology available with special attention given to the artfully articulated bracing structure as well as the carefully designed separate enclosures for the individual drivers.
The new crossover design possesses both the elegant simplicity of soft filters and the complexity needed to weave the drivers' output into a cohesive system. The design and selection of each component was selected to deliver harmonious musicality and authentic instrumental timbres.
With Vienna’s typical high quality veneers, true piano lacquer, and sophisticated veneer wrapping technique which create the gently eased edges, the Reference loudspeakers are instantly recognizable as Vienna Acoustics designs.
As with all Vienna Acoustics loudspeakers the Reference models are lovingly handcrafted in Austria to the highest standards to deliver a sublime listening experience on all kinds of music.
