26 Mar Company report: Acapella Audio Arts – In other spheres
“Hello, I’m Robert”, a strikingly tall, athletic-looking man in his late twenties greets me with a friendly smile. I came to Duisburg to get some deeper insights into the world of acapella audio arts – so this is Robert Rudolph, with whom I had an appointment in front of the “Audio Forum Duisburg” this afternoon. Most audiophiles are probably familiar with Acapella, not least from the well attended and successful demonstrations at relevant HiFi fairs in Bonn, Krefeld or Munich. Perhaps this visit to the company will also reveal something about the future of the traditional manufacturer who boasts, not without pride, that he is the inventor of the spherical horn. Although not all sound transducers from Duisburg are adorned with such a horn, it might pass for an unofficial trademark of Acapella Audio Arts.
