Our horn speakers have an instinct for excellence based on decades of innovation and thoughtful design, merging into our unique transducer systems intended to bring your music to life.
We have been the technology leader in designing and manufacturing horn speakers for almost 50 years. Moreover, we are the inventors of the spherical horn. In the audiophile world nothing comes to the heart of our speakers. The pinnacle of our knowledge is the new, patented hyperspherical horn, which allows listening at the highest sonic level and guarantees an exciting musical experience.
The spherical horn concept was created in 1978 in cooperation with the University of Aachen. Unlike conventional horns, our spherical horn radiates sound waves in a spherical shape. This corresponds to the ideal principle of the one-point-source. The shape of our horn combines the extreme dynamics and speed of a nearly massless diaphragm with the efficiency of a horn, without creating distortion or tonal discolouration.
The pairing of our extraordinarily fast diaphragms, which produce signals only via slight excursions, with the horn itself and amplifying them through the funnel shape results in extremely fast impulses and sets new standards in authentic music reproduction.
We value the highest quality and attention to detail. Our double-walled, glass fiber reinforced horns filled with resonance-damping materials represent the feasibility of loudspeaker design up to this day.
Day by day we tirelessly attempt to push the boundaries of what’s possible. The limits of our own performance. And those of our loudspeakers. We design, we develop, we try out. We learn to master rules. We pave this path in order to always go one step further and leave conventions behind.
Our new, patented hyperspherical horn takes it even one more step further. It is the capstone of our expertise. This asymmetric horn extends beyond the 180 degree horn opening of the classic spherical horn shape. In addition to the elegant and elaborate appearance of this design, there are also significant technical advantages. The transmission range of our hyperspherical horn increased from the usual three to now five octaves. Minimal distortion and tonal discolouration, which usually emerge at the end of the frequency ranges of the classic horn technology, are a thing of the past with this new horn design.
Because the music signal is now transmitted over a much larger frequency band with maximum dynamics, the sound is even more natural. That’s why the hyperspherical horn can be precisely combined with other drive units. This applies to our woofers as well as to our ion tweeter.
The processing quality of the elaborate resonance-optimized designs reflects highest craftsmanship expertise and makes our hyperspherical horns unique. With them, we are in the process of writing history in the world of hi-fi.
