Loudspeaker Lust!

Zingali Butterfly

   Zingali use a combination of compression driver/horn-loading and bass reflex woofer(s) to give their speaker line very high sensitivity.  Meanwhile, Toulipiè wood is used for the horn and other parts of the speaker.  Seen in the photo is the Butterfly .3 (left) and Butterfly .2 (right).   During the Milan show i had the pleasure of hearing their speakers and i must say they are amazingly good.  Wish they were available in the USA.

Gallo Nucleus

   Well, i've said it before and i'll say it again.  Gallo has balls. Seen here is not a photo, but a pure cyber 3D creation by cool dude Jon Gale of the Gallo Nucleus speaker.  Jon has a killer website himself featuring room set-up, DIY projects, music reviews, other cool 3Dcreations and much more!

Tannoy Churchill

   A speaker i grew up with, the Tannoy 12" dual-concentric Gold Monitor, has been through various changes since the circa 1969 models i still hear at my parents' home.  Seen here is their new Churchill 15" dual-concentric driver in a selected veneer over one inch MDF core.  The crossover uses Solen Hepta-Litz inductors with Solen capacitors and Dale resistors.  Custom Kimber shielded bi-wire is used also as are precision WBT speaker binding posts.

Pearl Celesta

   Pearl Audio Technology has this really cute little speaker called the Celesta.  With a 19mm soft-dome and 100mmmid/woofer, 12db/octave crossover at 5,000Hz, and front ported design, the manufacturer claims a frequency response of 60Hz - 25kHz.  High quality 5% inductors, 3.5% capacitors, and 5% resistors are used in the crossover by the way.

Avalon Eidolon

   Finished in beautiful, matched pair exterior, the Avalon Eidolon speakers are a great example of a furniture quality, high performance loudspeaker.  Each speaker is entirely crafted by hand in limited numbers.  In fact each pair is highly matched not just is visuals, but also in electrical properties too to insure its owners enjoys many years of superior music reproduction.  From the individual drivers all the way to the final packing in their shipping crates, each step is carefully controlled to guarantee extraordinary results.  Oh, did i forget to mention the five coats of lacquer?  For those who are wondering, the frequency response is claimed as 26Hz - 34 kHz (+/- 1.5dB).  Forget the specifications and enjoy the beauty of not just the visuals, but most important of all, the music.

Avantgarde Acoustic

   So, are ya feeling horny?  Well, after looking at the larger photo i surely am!  These speakers have been all the rage in magazines from many reviewers worldwide.  In fact one of my close friends who's not a reviewer loves his pair.  Now if i was only as rich as i am stupid...  Anyway, these speakers are extremely sensitive and therefor are great with amplifier from three watts on up.   My friend sez his eight watt 300B based unit gets really loud.  Part of the "trick" here is that Avantgarde uses a self-powered sub/woofer module and high quality crossover network accordingly.  Gotta warn ya though, these speakers can sound utterly awesome or horrible depending on the care in setup and upstream equipment.   When all things are just right they will deliver the goods unlike most speakers i have ever heard.  Hmm... what is my credit card limit again?

B&W Emphasis

   Rarely seen.  Most folks don't even know about it.  Sadly, never reviewed.  What am i referring to?  Why, the B&W Emphasis speaker!   First time i saw this was at the B&W USA distribution facility.   MAN-O-MAN, all i could say was gimme-gimme-gimme!!!  It looks so saxual and it is kinda horny looking too.  It uses B&W's cool Kevlar bass/midrange driver and of course their metal domed tweeter.  All this came about while they were flirting with their snail looking speaker many folks have seen (the Nautilus).   Hmmm... now who does a dude haveta bribe to get a pair of these babies for review?
