    Munich High End 2017: Loudspeakers

    voxativ munich

    Imagine a collision between CES and CEDIA when both were at their peak, and you’ll have an idea of how enormous and jam-packed with goodies Munich High End is. There’s simply nothing else like it in the audio world. Everything a music lover could want is on display—either actively in the “rooms” that line the second and third floors or passively in the gigantic halls on the ground level.

    Obviously no single human being can take in every item at Munich High End, and yet, in its wisdom, TAS editorial asked me to cover loudspeakers. Not speakers above $20k as per usual. All loudspeakers, regardless of price. (Truth is that most of the speakers at the MOC were priced above $20k, as Munich High End is the black-tie event of the season for manufacturers worldwide, and no one wants to show up in less than his finest.) Thus, this report is going to be woefully incomplete.

    It’s also going to tend to be negative (with exceptions). The trouble with the MOC (Munich’s convention center, where the show is held) is that it doesn’t really have rooms in the sense that hotels do. It has cubicles that are separated from each other by thin, flexible panels on either side, with glass walls front and back. This may be fine if you’re selling apparel or furniture, but if you’re showing stuff that makes sound it’s a disaster. The sonic bleed-through from next door is unusually loud and incessant, plus the cubicles themselves are catastrophes waiting to happen—simultaneously bright (glass backwalls) and boomy (thin flexible sidewalls and awkward dimensions). As a result, it is a rare speaker system that doesn’t suffer from room-induced nightmares. Of course, some exhibitors know how to surmount these hurdles better than others, and it doesn’t hurt if the speakers themselves are linear, low in enclosure/driver distortion (particularly in the bass), and neutral in balance.

    Munich High End remains the greatest audio show on earth, and if you have the means you owe it to yourself to one day attend, if only to see the plethora of stuff you won’t see anywhere else and to enjoy the spargel, schnitzel, weissbier, and music that this beautiful German city is famous for. Just don’t come expecting a sonic paradise.

    The Best

    voxativ munich2

    Having just mentioned stuff that you won’t see anywhere else, I might as well start with last year’s Best of Show winner, Kevin Scott’s £450k Living Voice Vox Palladian five-way horn loudspeaker system (15” Vitavox 151 bass unit, Vitavox S2 compression midrange, TAD TD-2002 beryllium tweeter, Vitavox T0 ultra-high-frequency driver, and Vox Palladian Basso powered, exponentially-horn-loaded subwoofer), driven by Scott’s usual collection of superb Japanese electronics (Kondo M77 preamplifier and a pair of Gakuoh 300B amplifiers) with ancillary equipment from CEC, Neodio, and Canary. What can I say about the Living Voice that I didn’t say last year? It’s a system that is impossible to beat in dynamic range and expression, especially on male and female vocals. One gets used to speakers that will handle fortissimos with high clarity and thunderous impact, but, folks, I’ve heard nothing else that handles pianissimos with the delicacy and sustain this one delivers. Add to that, remarkable image size and soundstage scale, beautiful (albeit slightly dark) 300B tone color, and you-are-there immediacy, and you get what is surely one of the greatest stereos in the world (as well you should for over a million bucks, all items included).

    voxativ munich3

    And as long as we're in that exotic and unaffordable land where there be dragons, MBL was showing its $263k, three-way, ten-driver X-Treme (two Radialstrahler tweeters and two Radialstrahler midranges in a D’Appolito configuration coupled to six, powered, push-push woofers in a separate tower, per side), driven and sourced by MBL’s Reference electronics (Reference 9011 monoblock amps, Reference 6010 D preamp). I’ve heard the X-Tremes sound great (in my own room, no less) and I’ve heard them sound…well, not so great at various shows. At this year’s Munich High End, they were great, pure and simple—phenomenally rich, beautiful, three-dimensional, hard-hitting, spacious, and lifelike on Tchaikovsky’s piano concerto, on Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, on a Bach cello suite (which was first played live in the MBL room, and then played back on a previously recorded disc), on voice…on everything. I’ve always felt that omnis like the X-Tremes need walls nearby to perform at their finest (and as they are designed to perform). Though seemingly jammed into a smallish corner of a largish room, the gigantic (3600-pound) X-Tremes thrived in this closed-in space, producing what was unquestionably one of the very best sounds in Munich—and one of the best sounds I’ve heard these great loudspeakers make. Congratulation to Christian, Juergen, and Jeremy for a superb effort.

    voxativ munich4

    Andy Payor’s Rockport Technologies was showing two speakers at Munich High End. The first was a debut: the $170k Lyra, a five-driver, three-and-a-halfway floorstander (two 10” woofers, two 6” midranges, one 1” beryllium tweeter in a heroic two-piece aluminum enclosure), driven by Absolare electronics and sourced by a Kronos turntable. The sound was mostly superb on my Johnny Hartman LP without any of the excessive sibilance and chestiness I heard so often in other rooms on Hartman’s voice and with excellent reproduction of sax and standup bass (despite a little room boom). However, it was Rockport’s $60k Cygnus, a four-driver, three-way loudspeaker (two 10” woofers, one 6” midrange, one 1” beryllium tweeter in a composite aluminum enclosure) —driven (alternately and jointly) by Soulution 3, 5, and 7 Series electronics, sourced by a De Baer turntable, wired with Vovox cables, and mounted on Joe Lavrencik’s new Critical Mass Systems Olympus stands—that won my heart. The Cygnus/Soulution sound was fantastic right off the bat, with superb dynamics, color, transients, and three-dimensional body on “Mood Indigo” from my Ellington LP. On a second visit, my Taj Mahal disc proved to be just as terrific, with wonderful resolution of detail, no shoutiness on the Pointer Sisters’ backup vocals, and real ease on fortes. Johnny Hartman provided the hat trick, with superb body and color on the vocals and the best reproduction of standup bass (a Soulution specialty) I heard at the show.

    voxativ munich5

    On a roll lately, Wilson Benesch was also demo’ing in two rooms, only in this case it was debuting the same speaker in each: the $70k Resolution, a seven-driver three-way (four clamshell-mounted Tactic II woofers, two Tactic II midranges, and a single silk-dome/carbon-fiber tweeter in a monocoque carbon-fiber-composite cabinet). In the first room the Resolution was paired with CH Precision electronics and sources, and the sound was stat-like in its clarity and absence of enclosure coloration (despite severe bleed-through from a neighboring cubicle and a bit of room-induced bass boom). But it was in the second room, where the speaker was driven by Ypsilon electronics and sourced by a Dohmann Helix turntable, that the Resolution really shone. The sound was considerably fuller and more beautiful than in the CH room, with warmer, richer, more lifelike vocal timbre on my Johnny Hartman LP and well defined standup bass. The piano may not have been as crisp and ivory-like on top as it was in the CH room, but Hartmann sounded more like the silky baritone that he was. Indeed, the presentation was reminiscent of the Rockport Cygnus in the Soulution room—beautiful in color, with superior pace and definition in the low end. Wilson Benesch makes swell loudspeakers.

    voxativ munich6

    The folks from the German company Kaiser Acoustics—who design and build the €80k Kawero! Classic C3 three-way, three-driver floorstander (one RAAL ribbon tweeter one reflex-loaded midrange, and one reflex-loaded woofer in a computer-optimized, CNC-milled, beech-ply enclosure that looks demure but weighs 218 pounds)—have rightly complained about being given short shrift by me at past shows. This year, I made a special effort to pay them a visit—and liked what I heard so much I came back again. Driven by Kondo electronics and sourced by a Kondo ’table, the Kawero! Classic was a model of speed, color, delicacy, power, and realism on everything from full orchestra to a guitar duo—and just as exceptional on Louis and Co. playing “St. James Infirmary.” Without question this was one of the best sounds in Munich, particularly realistic in the midband.

    voxativ munich7

    Speaking of which, Holger Adler of Voxativ was showing his $40k Pi 9.87, a three-driver two-way floorstander (one AC-1.6, full-range wooden cone in a folded-horn enclosure coupled with two actively powered woofers in a separate dipole enclosure), driven (above the woofers’ limited range) by Voxativ’s own monoblocks and preamp and sourced by an SME turntable. To my surprise, the Pi had extremely deep, powerful, open, free-flowing, seamlessly matched bass! Indeed the entire presentation, which above 100Hz or so is handled solely by Adler’s unique wooden full-ranger, was quite remarkably of a piece with no loss of upper end extension or transient speed—and none of the usual “hot spots” that single-driver speakers are perennially afflicted with (and no power range suckout, either). This is a very special transducer—a BOS contender just for its stat-like coherence and neutrality. Indeed, I thought it reproduced Johnny Hartman’s voice more naturally than anything else at the show—just edging out the Rockport Cygnus, which sounded a wee bit darker and chestier (though more beautiful).

    voxativ munich8

    A past Best of Show winner (in Munich in 2014 his Statement set a bar for goosebump-raising realism that has yet to be equaled), Manuel Podszus of Zellaton was showing his $80k Stage—a smaller, three-driver, two-and-half-way driven by Japanese YS solid-state electronics (the monoblocks are said to deliver 2400W into 4 ohms), wired by Schnerzinger, and sourced by various analog and digital delicacies. In the past the only reservation I’ve had about Zellatons is dynamics, particularly in the bass, where they tended to crap out when pushed hard. Not this year. The Stages had superb bass—very rich in color and texture on drum, with wonderful soundstage spaciousness. On my Debussy sonata recording, they were absolutely gorgeous on fiddle; more surprisingly they also delivered the piano with superb color, weight, and solidity from the bottom octaves through the power range. Something has changed chez Zellaton. I’m not entirely sure what, but I am sure it is for the better. This is a superb speaker that sounds uncannily like a Quad 57 that’s gone on a Charles Atlas program

    • The web based magazin Audio Traveler about the 9.87 system: "The sound was very linear and cohesive with the single drivers giving pinpoint imaging and 3D-sound staging and the spruce cone and Japanese-paper whizzer lending a life-like timbre to strings and voices with tight, authoritative bass that never gave a hint of boominess or disconnect from the midrange."

     

    • AUDIO magazine - One of Germany biggest High-end audio magazine reviewing the Ampeggio Due: "This loudspeaker is one of the most frugal converter in the over 35 year history of AUDIO. (...) So directly real and vividly you have probably never heard a concert grand on a hi-fi system." 

     

    • Jonathan Valin - The Absolute Sound (Highend Show Munich, May 2013): "...the sound was extraordinarily present, a little lightweight in balance, but exceptionally open, boxless, and detailed. In the midrange single-driver speakers are nearly impossible to beat for sheer liveliness and life, especially on voice...for their midband realism alone, the Pi and especially the new Ampeggio were 'Best Of Show' contenders..." 

     

    • Jason Victor Serinus - Stereophile (RMAF, October 2012 ): "...extremely impressive, solid, warm and inviting sound. 'A cut above the rest' I wrote in my notes..."

     

    • Peter Breuninger - AV Showrooms (RMAF, October 2012 ): "...the sound was superb but three rooms stood out... the MBL suite, the Wilson/VTL suite and the highend- electronics suite featuring the Voxativ loudspeaker. " 
      "...the most involving and intimate sound was to be had from the Voxativ loudpeaker being driven by KR amplifiers."

     

    The Ampeggio also won the "AV Showrooms Gold Show Award for Best Sound" at the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest October 2012. CLICK HERE to watch a video on YouTube from our room with highend electronics at the RMAF 2012.

    • Customer feedback (T.H.E. Show Newport, June 2012): "...This was the most musically involving and musically 'correct' system I have ever heard. I have never felt so emotionally connected with the music"

     

    • Jonathan Valin - The Absolute Sound (RMAF October 2011): "...I can tell you this: On the Gospel Ship cut of Joan Baez in Concert no other speaker at RMAF sounded as lovely, lithe, and lively as the Ampeggios. It was the most natural reproduction of voice I heard at the show..."

     

    • Clark Johnson - Positive Feedback Online (T.H.E. Show Newport, June 2011 ): "...in the Highend-Electronics room we encounter magnificent one-way sound from the German Voxativ loudspeakers driven by KRamps... the Ella cut I've been playing around, on a CD-R made from a 1963 master tape, sounds better than ever!"

     

    • Winner of Product of the Year 2011 Award (Stereophile December 2011): "...clearly, the Voxativ Ampeggio fuels our passion for music. And with that in mind, it really should come as no suprise that thisstrange new speaker is our Product of the Year 2011. In its design, appearance, and sound, the Voxativ Ampeggio is bold, beautiful, distinct, and fun - a product to admire, love, and honor. Congratulations Voxativ - and thanks!" 

     

    • Art Dudley of Stereophile wrote (August 2011): "...the Voxativ Ampeggios showed the same considerabletransient speed, spatial presence, dramatic ease, and physical impact as the best Lowther applications I've heard - and lacked the English speakers' most egregious flaws."
      "Low frequency tones, from just below 40Hz and up, hadreal power, color, and physicality via the Voxativs... Midrange sounds wereopen, clear, and stunningly present: the kind of playback performance that makes use of the word transparent not only forgivable but almost mandatory. The trebles were similarly clear... and, perhaps most important of all, there was no upper-mid response peak. No shout. No glare. No shit!"
      "...the Voxativ Ampeggio went beyond sounding good: More than once, with too many records to mention, I found myself stopping to marvel at its brilliantly good pitch certainty... I was able to enjoy everything I played through them - not just as sound but as music - withoutfatigue, frustration, or, worst of all, lack of interest." 
      "...the sort of spatial presentation that some audio perfectionists cherish: a deep and sizable chunk of pure, open sound, minedfrom the original quarry and transported to the listener's room, "air" and all: The Voxativs, more than any other flea-wart-friendly speakers with which I'm familiar, did the soundstaging thing. In spades."
      "More than just a Lowther without a shout, this is a Lowther with a foundation, a Lowther with real bass - a high efficiency, single-driver loudspeaker for which no excuses need be made. Just a few years after giving up on the idea, I've now encountered a single-driver dynamic speaker I could live with; in most audio reviews that's faint praise, but in this one it's a revelation. In the months ahead, I'm certain the Voxativ Ampeggio will change many more minds..."

     

    • Srajan Ebaen of 6moons.com wrote (September 2010): "...the Ampeggio appears to be a milestone inmodern widebanders... it's presently one of the most compelling samples of the breed and surely the best I've encountered by not a small margin. The Ampeggio also is a musical instrument not merely on looks or because of who makes it. It's a musical instrument in how its superior time domain performance establishes proper harmonic fidelity in ways that read abstract or poetic but in the listening seat communicate themselves without any mouthfuls of fancywords."
      "Be assured though that the Voxativ Ampeggio goes places no Lowther I've ever heard has before... In my book then, this is a breakthrough." Read more at app.audiogon.com

    HISTORY

    My father Michel Visan in the 1970’s was the Chief Designer and innovator of many of the loudspeaker designs seen today, working for  several leading  manufacturers  at the time. In 1986 he founded Davis Acoustics as a family business. It started in our backyard with two employees in the Saint Maur des Fosses area of Paris.  We expanded the factury three times until building our most recent facility in its current location of Troyes, France.

     

    The Davis name has always  been synonymous with  true high fidelity and is to this date a recognized leader worldwide  in the design, manufacture and sale of superior quality, true, life-like, sound reproduction loudspeakers.  Completely self financed  all of our products and sub components including coils, magnets, speaker cones and cabinets are all designed and hand made by our highly trained dedicated craftsmen in our factory in France.   Our OEM division manufactures speakers for several of the world’s leading class automotive manufactures for their client’s enjoyment as well as where we design, manufacture and supply other OEM speaker brands with our technology. The tradition of design excellence and our love for audio and audiophiles worldwide  is continued by our family and staff.

    In-House DAVIS Technology

    At Davis Acoustics we design and manufacture our own drive units, coils, magnets, crossovers, …most everything in France. Since our humble, early beginnings, our highly skilled staff design and produce our high quality drive units from scratch here at our factory in Troyes, France.

    A drive unit may be termed as “the engine” of a speaker. By changing the materials used in the construction of the cone, the size of a magnet, the value of resistance in the voice coil, its size, composition, our engineers can decide on the unique characteristics and “color” of a speaker, even before even starting to work on its charge or its crossover. We produce speakers from the most basic of components from the start, to the very end as a finished product destined to you. All in-house, under one roof, and one team. This is a great advantage over our competitors. Many of our peers outsource their speaker designs and their manufacture, many do this off shore and to the lowest bidder. We do not. For over a quarter century we have complete control over design and the maintenance of quality. We control the process of manufacturing from start to finish, always striving for perfection. We reinvest our profits back into our Company, and we only design and make loudspeakers. We sell nothing else.

    davis

     

    Our Product Line

     

    We boast a variety of loudspeakers to satisfy all tastes and budgets. For instance, our EVA series of loudspeakers sees Davis Acoustics succeed in producing a high quality loudspeakers with a satisfying audio experience for the user at an affordable price.

     

    Our recently launched POWER family of speakers feature high efficiency drive units for this product range. The line uses a speaker cone that is both very light and yet at the same time very stiff. This design was the result of a direct response to the ever growing demand for speakers that can perfectly be mated with tube amplifiers. In this case our profound knowledge of drive units and manufacturing techniques permitted us to design and deliver the first dozen first samples of this dedicated drive unit first used in our Monitor 1 model within weeks. Powerful and accurate, the liner features both bookshelf and free standing column models.

     

    As audiophiles ourselves, we even sell kits for the audio enthusiast. This ensures that DAVIS may meet any and all markets, budgets and passions. This allows one to have a personal experience with their finished loudspeaker all the while benefitting from our core driver technology that we supply. It is a passion for us, I am sure you would agree.

    Test Highfidelity

    Published: Jan 16th 2012

    I believe my memory is quite good. Even though I remember almost everything I sometimes have problems with placing some events in particular moment of the past. That’s why I wasn’t completely sure during which Audio Show a room that everybody called „Ukrainian” was so popular, and so well spoken off. In there mostly products of N-Audio were presented. Not to mix the facts I checked that – it was, as I thought, in 2010. After the Show year after year there are several discussions on audio forums with people describing their impressions and I saw a lot talking about N-Audio but not a single negative comment about the sound presented in this particular room, which by the way is very unusual. Just to remind those of you who were there – the system presented in this room was surprisingly inexpensive with Hunday Blu-ray player that delivered signal to N-Audio DAC, which drove a tube preamplifier that delivering just 2W drove directly high-efficiency horn speakers. Surely it wasn’t a high-end sound but it was so enjoyable that it attracted large crowd most of the time. After the Show I even considered reviewing on of the Ukrainian products but I gave up the idea after realizing through how much trouble I would have to go with Customs and so on to get something from outside EU.

     In 2011 N-Audio was not participating in AudioShow so I was quite surprised when I entered the Bodnar Audio room and realized that „I know this guy somehow…”. And yes, „the guy” was the same one I remembered from N-Audio room. I think we spoke in 2010 for quite some while. Explanation turned out to be quite simple – Mr Paweł Bodnar came to live in Poland 20 years ago from… Ukraine. That explained his connections with Ukrainian manufacturers – and we know very well, that there are a lot of them, manufacturing mostly tube devices. Some brand are in fact quite popular in Poland – I myself had 300B Abraxas amplifier. Using time between AudioShow 2010 and 2011 Pawel Bodnar designed and started to manufacture his own horn speakers with Hungarian full-range speakers (no crossover) – he called his company simply Bodnar Audio. Our Chief Editor knowing my weakness for this type of speakers offered me an opportunity to review an entry level product of this company, which I gladly accepted.

    In theory there are there models of loudspeakers in Bodnar Audio’s portfolio (but there are more versions) – each of them uses a different full-range driver. All drivers come form Hungarian manufacturer called – Sonido. When I visited Mr Pawel in his headquarters in Katowice he told me that he wasn’t happy with his middle model of loudspeaker so he decided to keep working on it withdrawing it for the moment from company’s portfolio. This in fact decreases the portfolio to two models for now – the entry level, herewith tested, Woodline Hornton that sports 145 mm driver, and the top model called Soundglass, with its large 200 mm driver (the model currently withdrawn sports a 175 mm driver).

    Please check Bodnar website – you will find there several different finishes Woodline model is offered with. When it comes to top model Soundglass, there are even more options with top version finished in piano black or white (lots of other colors are of course also available). When you order a product from a small manufacturer you can easily recognize advantages – there are standard products but it is possible to agree almost any change considering its finish, or details like internal cabling, or speaker binding posts. During our conversation Mr Pawel told me about his recent special customer who ordered Soundglass speakers with fronts made of… very specific granite – of course he received. It was also an interesting experience for Mr Pawel as he had a chance to listen to his own design with this quite important change in form of granite front and he admitted it sounded even better, with amazingly extended and very well defined bass range. Customers wishes some particular binding posts – no problem, particular internal cabling – OK, cables running directly from driver to amplifier – sure, why not (it is possible because there is no crossover).

    Customer has lots of options, he can even come up with some of his own – can you imagine a better deal than this one? Sure you have to pay for such extra features but you can have a speaker tailored for your needs. Even after short listening session with Soundglasses I can easily imagine customers who buy those, connect them directly to their beloved low-watt tube amps and spend the rest of their lives enjoying music delivered by such setup.

    Let’s get back to subject of this test – Woodline Hornton. As I already mentioned it’s a horn speakers which implicates significant dimensions of their cabinet. Height – 1100 mm – is quite impressive but since the width is only 200 mm and the depth is 350 mm, which when placed in a room creates an image of not so big loudspeaker. A small (145 mm) full-range driver with paper cone and wooden phase plug is placed in the middle of the upper part of the front panel. Behind this driver there is an inlet of the horn tunnel, that first runs down along front panel, than at the bottom turns up up and runs to the month of the horn located in the upper part of the back panel. There is no crossover of any kind here – copper cable runs directly from driver to the binding posts. The design doesn’t really allow to look inside to check if there is any damping – most likely there is some at least behind the driver. The cabinet stands on four feet, yes feet not cones. I guess this also might be changed but I’m not sure if there is really a need. Mr Pawel Bodnar recommends driving these speakers with 300B SET amplifier – that’s what he uses himself. In theory each designer should try to build simply good loudspeakers but let’s face it – most of them when working on this design listens to it using his amplifier. In this case it was 300B SET so this kind of amplifier should be the best match for Horntons. High sensitivity, easy load – this means that probably each low-watt amp will do the job. But if you have some more powerful amplifier you should give it a try too – at Mr Pawel’s place we listened with 6C33 amp and I liked it very much too.

    I’m a fan and owner of 300B SET so my choice of amplification for this test was obvious. I also own horn speakers (with Voxative drivers) so regardless big price difference I was comparing sound of both designs (although it would be more fair to compare my speakers to Soundglass model).

    The first surprise when you start to listen to these speakers is a a big volume of sound – I mean bigger than what you might expect looking at them. But that’s one of the reasons of using horn cabinets… The second surprise is bass. Surely it’s not extended to the very bottom, and it is not that rich as it could be, but it’s definitely fast, taut, rhythmic. Also kind of „standard” disadvantage of horn speakers is some colorization of bass – that happens quite often but not here. So even though there is no lowest bass but everything above it is fast, clean, taut – the latter is (from my experience) quite rare when it comes to horns

    I listened to one of Dire Straits recordings, where bass guitar plays very important, one might even say key role. The very smooth, liquid presentation, speakers disappearing from the room and high realism – all that totally distracted me from what I wanted to listen to – bass guitar. But when I finally got there I realized that it was clearly present, doing its job – being a pulse of every tune. OK, it could go bit deeper and have more body but the way it was presented was simply enjoyable. Mark Knopfler’s voice on the other hand was presented in beautiful, very convincing way – bit rough, bit warm – just the pure essence of Dire Straits vocalist’s voice, that could not be mistaken with any other. An acoustic guitar, whenever it appeared, sounded not just good, sounded damn good (or even better considering the price of those speakers) – every pluck on string, sounds sustained by a sound board that was really „involved” in making sound – all that sounded very natural, palpable, real. Anyway – rock music sounded quite well on Horntons which is more than you could expect from horn speakers, and when it came to voice or acoustic instrument reproduction it sounded very good, very convincing. The latter boosted my expectations towards next listening session with vocal and acoustic music.

    But before I got there I decided to listen to some more „old” rock music. Well, not THAT old, but at list some singles from Singles collection of U2 are pretty old. This album has unfortunately this poor sound quality in common with all other recordings of this band and, also unfortunately, Horntons showed me that strait out – boosted bass and very flat, thin sound overall. Somehow warm sounding 300B with full-rangers did not make this recording sound any better. All I could stand were maybe 3 pieces and I had to run that off. Anyway there was my proof that these horns work in a simple way – „sh…t in sh…t out”.

    In the meantime I received an email from a Reader who asked my how those speakers played rock and pop music, so I listened to few more recordings that might not exactly be classified as pop or rock genre but that was closest I could come up with (I simply don’t really have pop recordings).

    I started with blues fans „pride and joy” – the one and only Stevie Ray Vaughan. Yup, I do realize that’s no rock but I would call it electric blues, maybe even blues-rock – anyway instruments used by SRV band were the same as by most rock bands so his music could do the job in mind.

    One small digression – when you read this review please remember that it’s written by a total tube and horn aficionado, who has had his own horns and 300B for couple of years now – that means I love the sound they offer (that’s not a blind love – I know weaknesses of this sound and I accept to and enjoy fabulous advantages). I needed to remind (or let you know) that, so that you read my words properly.

    I really loved the way Stevie’s guitar sang, his voice touched my soul when I was listening, and my feet were dancing around. But if I were used to listening to such music via some powerful solid-state amp and big, 5-way speakers I would probably say that guitar was quite good, voice very nice but the bass drum didn’t have enough weight, and bass guitar could have more body. This second version would more high-fidelity version of recording reproduction, but what I expect from my personal system is to play music in a way that „moves my soul”, lets me feel it, live it, enjoy it. And I don’t need high-fidelity for that – I need all performer’s emotions, I need to be as close to him as possible, as that’s what take me in, lets me dive into the music without paying attention to details – just enjoy/absorb performance as a whole.

    And that’s what Bodnar Audio speakers did for me. Surely many other speakers could show me bass drum more convincingly, bass guitar with more body and power – that is all true. But very, very few could deliver SRV and his guitar to my room and show them right in front of me sounding so real, that the rest of the world just didn’t exist anymore – there was only Stevie and his music. Yes, better horns could do it even better but this speakers costing less than 4000 PLN are good enough to create this amazing illusion and to drag a listener into the world of fantastic emotions expressed with voice and instruments.

    After that I listened to two recordings probably closest to pop that I have in my collection – first Katia Cardenal, and than Raul Midon. To be honest both recordings are mostly about leading voices and guitars (classic and acoustic) but at least the arrangements are rather pop-like. Also both recordings offer decent sound quality which is not too often the case with pop recordings.

    I love Katia’s voice each time I listen to it, so I’m not going to write anything about it, maybe except for a short notice that this presentation was very close to what my own horns with Voxative drivers deliver. And that, at least for me, means that it was really, really good. Soundstage, even with this pop-like music, was impressive – left to right and front to back. It was not that precise – as the distances between instruments were not clearly shown, but credit for that goes rather to the recording itself. It was obvious that focus was on the vocalist and guitar – all other instruments were shown just in the background – and Hornton’s presentation made it even more obvious.

    I had similar impression when listening to the album of Raul Midon. I found this guy couple of years ago in Internet, and it was his solo, live performance. Raul has amazing voice and really knows how to use it to sing but also to play them like instruments (different ones, but usually like a trumpet). I love that performance and watched it several times and finally bought his CD. Unfortunately somebody decided that solo performance would not sell, so now Raul has a whole band supporting him and his songs sounded now more pop-like. Even though I still like this album (and next ones) as Raul’s vocal skills are still most important element. And as I mentioned before his vocal skills are impressive – nice timbre, huge scale and this guy can do everything with his voice including doing very realistic trumpet. Nothing matter in this presentation as much as he did, and this was probably the intention of this record producers. It’s not only about how the music was recorded, with vocalist usually in front of the band, but also about how it is presented by SET amp and horn speakers. Simply the midrange is the most important part of the frequency range and that means that voices, and most acoustic instruments are shown in a wonderful, palpable, involving way.

    Last but not least – clou of this test – music that is/was a reason to build horns speakers with single full-range drivers (like Bodnar Audio Hornton) – acoustic jazz, blues and (mostly) female vocals. I started (how could I not?) with Ray Brown Trio and their live recording called Summer wind. Oh boy! That’s all I could say after first minute or so. I’m not going to claim that rock, classical music, or operas I prefer to listen using horn speakers – I don’t – such music requires real full-range speakers. But when it comes to live recordings of acoustic music that I wouldn’t trade (good) horns driven by a SET amplifier for nothing else (except for better horns and better SET).

    It always amazes me how well such speakers perform regardless of volume – doesn’t matter if I play loud or very quiet – everything that’s going on on the stage or in the audience, is equally audible. Every detail, everything that surrounds music, and the music itself… It is amazing but worth under 4 kPLN speakers manage to create fantastic illusion of live concert. You can „see” musicians really enjoying themselves, you can also clearly „see” how extraordinary musicians they are. It takes only a very short time to feel the ambiance of the concert, to become a part of it, to react as if the listener was one of the fans in the audience, to laugh when some forgotten phone starts to ring, to clap one’s hands when enjoying some amazing solo, and so on. No, I’m not claiming that it was the best reproduction of this recording I’ve ever heard – my horns, or Avantgarde Acoustics can do it even better – but hey! Horntons achieve this level of performance with 145 mm drivers and at the price of less than 4 kPLN! That’s hell of achievement if you ask me. You want better performance – no problem, just pay for it couple of times more. Here even fantastic solos of Jeff Hamilton (drummer) sounded really good – brushes dancing on cymbals, nicely working hi-hat – no complains here! OK, maybe cymbals could have had bit more body to deliver even richer sound, but they were really good as they were. Same goes for drums – each strike was fast, dynamic, taut – it could only have bit more weight. But still the presentation as a whole was so energetic, emotional, so involving that this small weaknesses simply didn’t matter. I listened to many more acoustic instruments too but conclusion was always the same – smooth, warm, natural, enjoyable sound.

    What about vocals? It did not really matter if it was a nostalgic voice of Eva Cassidy, or Cassandra Wilson singing Miles, or swinging Louis Armstrong, or sweet Frank Sinatra – each voice sounded amazingly well, and each of them in a different way, always delivering huge portion of emotions. It’s simply not about listening to the music anymore (or at least not only about that). It’s more about experiencing it, living it, feeling all those emotions expressed by vocalists and musicians. I said that already but I’m still going to repeat that – such performance is what horn speakers driven by SET can do better than any other rig (in my opinion, of course). It’s not like a listener has any choice – he gets involved in music whether he wants it or not. He has to start swinging with Louis, or cry with Eva.

    This kind of presentation does not have to much in common with what’s widely considered to be a „high-end sound”, maybe not even with „hi-fi”. Because even as a huge fan of horn speakers and SET amplification I’m not going to try to convince you that it offers the best sound in „hi-fi/high-end” terms. It’s more like some approach to music presentation concentrated on emotions, on feeling the music. That’s exactly what I need after long working day, when, tired, all I want is to sit down in comfortable armchair with a glass of wonderful Merlot to relax and listen to my favorite music. It’s not a time for AC/DC or Mahler, but rather for Ray Brown, Miles Davis, Eva Cassidy or Etta James. And I want them in my room, just in front of me, I want them to make me laugh or cry or sing with them. What I don’t want than is a powerful bass that I could feel in my guts, nor sibilants hurting my ears (not even if they are in the recording). That’s what you get listening to Horntons driven by 300B SET – warm, sensual, emotional presentation – pure pleasure for your ears and soul. It’s not a system for everybody, but is there any? It’s for people listening mostly to acoustic music, to beautiful vocals, and who do it in the evening to forget about that crazy life most us have during working day. If that’s what you listen to and when you listen to it, than quite inexpensive (in „audiophile’s” terms) system with Horntons and for example 300B SET from JAG plus some „analogue” sounding source might offer you all you need. You’ll get lots of emotions, joy, happiness even, and most likely it will never get old.

    You expect more in terms of sound quality – no problem. There are better horns – like Bodnar Audio Soundglass for example. You’ll get better extended bass with more slam, more open, yet detailed treble, even denser midrange and better overall resolution of sound. And of course the better amplifier (although JAG is really good) and the better source you use the better outcome you get. Sound will be more „audiophile”, but still with this wonderful, rich, colorful, palpable midrange and sensuality, emotions and so on. It’s up to you how much you want/can spend but even with this simple system, with Horntons and some inexpensive amplifier you will get amazing result that will allow you to enjoy your favorite music, maybe like you never have before.

    Postscript

    It becomes a habit, writing last minute postscripts I mean. All above described impressions were based on listening sessions with my own ArtAudio Symphony II, (that’s a 300B SET) as suggested by the owner of Bodnar Audio. But when I actually finished this text and was about to start packing Horntons, I received Jadis I35 integrated amplifier for review. That’s a push-pull designed build around KT120. Could it be a nice match for horns – no way! Or at least it should never sound better than 300B SET. But I thought – what the hell, I’ll give it a try. I’ll have another proof that p-p amp doesn’t sound good with horns (none ever did before – in my experience of course). So what should I write now, after praising combination of Horntons and Symphony II? Well, I’m not going to lie to you – I could have just not write this postscript if I didn’t want to tell the truth. And that’s a lesson for me, and I hope it would be one for you too – there are now obvious truths in audio, you think you know something for sure? Think again, check again, listen again, try something else and one day you will find out that you were wrong. Yes, Jadis made Horntons sing even better. Sound became even more open, more airy, especially in the upper part of the frequency range, transparency was also better which created an impression that sound was more detailed than before. I think that in fact there were no more details, they were „only” shown in a more distinct, precise way. The recording of live performance of Marek Dyjak (I was there when it was recorded so I know how it sounded when it was recorded) is not as good as I expected. I would not say that quality is poor – it is good but I remember how fantastic this concert sounded in a small club where it took place. And it was only Jadis that reminded me that – the realism of the presentation was simply amazing. So instead of packing Bodnars I spent another day with them hooked up to Jadis – it was even more fun than before (also because I could simply enjoy it, and not review it anymore). Yes, it is quite expensive amplifier comparing to Horntons price and surely it can offer even more than these speakers were able to deliver. But on the other hand I think Jadis squeezed Bodnars dry to show their top performance and it was even more impressive than during my test. So previous conclusion still stands – these are outstanding speakers and hard to bit at this price.

    DESCRIPTION

    Bodnar Audio Woodline Hornton is a horn loudspeakers with full-range driver, no crossover. Manufacturer decided to use for this basic model small (145mm) drivers from Hungarian company called Sonido (SRF145 in particular). Driver has paper cones and there is a wooden phase plug in the middle. Driver is placed right in the middle of the upper part of front panel. Behind this driver there is an inlet of the horn tunnel, that first runs down along front panel, than at the bottom turns up and runs to the month of the horn located in the upper part of the back panel. Copper cable runs directly from the driver to the binding posts. The are quite simple one, which is understandable considering the price of these speakers, but I would like to see more solid ones in their place that would hold spades more firmly. From outside cabinet has a „classic” cubic shape. It’s made of MDF and finished, by hand, with natural veneer (it is planned to change that to machine process). Customer might pick one of many offered veneers. Despite very reasonable pricing finish quality is quite impressive.

    Specification (according to the manufacturer):

    • Driver: 145mm Full Range
    • Impedance: 8Ω
    • Sensitivity: 92dB
    • Recommended power: 4-20W
    • Height: 110cm
    • Width: 20cm
    • Depth: 35cm

  • Audio Academy


            The company Audio Academy was founded in 2001, but the idea to start manufacturing loudspeakers came much earlier, in mid 90-ties. 

    audio

    The first construction were loudspeakers based on Tonsil drivers. Those were big boxes with a transmission line, which attributed to a powerful bass. At the same time distributors from companies like Visaton and Seas started to appear in Poland. They offered drivers with ready made designs for making loudspeakers, and we used those concepts in our products. We cooperated with people dealing with acoustics for a living, what taught us a lot. 

            Today we have a lot of experience in constructing loudspeakers. The proof of that are very positive reviews in audiophile press, as well as opinions of people listening to our products.
