26 Mar Acapella Audio Arts: Sphäron Excalibur
Three years ago in the showroom of Acapella I could experience that with a poseydon you can get closer to the dynamics of a concert than even the most spoiled hifi fan can dream of. With the sound converter currently installed there, the distance between reality and illusion is said to have become even smaller. And you can hear it for yourself!
In the meantime, a lot has changed at Acapella Audio Arts: Besides Hermann Winters and Alfred Rudolf, his sons, Robert and Richard, are now also part of the company, and the legal form of the company has changed accordingly. Richard Rudolph has now been involved in research and production for well over ten years and has played a decisive role in the further development of Acapella’s top model, the current Sphäron Excalibur. Understandably, these systems are only built to order, of course incorporating the latest findings from the constant quest for even better reproduction. In contrast to the early Sphärons, the current system does not require a bass horn with coupling to the room anymore. Whereas a surface area of twelve square metres used to be indispensable, the current model manages with one modularly constructed, overman-high bass column each. In each of the four modules per side, designed according to the bass-reflex principle, an 18-inch chassis is used.
