Klipsch Heresy III 70th Anniversary Edition

We live in strange times when people often throw away old stuff to buy something new, not always better. Everything gets replaced faster and faster, sometimes just for the sake of making small changes in our lives. Not surprisingly, some people are not taking part in this process anymore. Instead, they started looking for true quality in products that have been manufactured long ago. The only trouble is, these things are not easy to find.

Dynaudio Special Forty

Dynaudio has launched its 40th anniversary speaker - the Special Forty. The team in Dynaudio Labs used the project as an opportunity to study and improve some of their most famous technologies, including making new steps in tweeter, woofer and crossover design. The Special Forty features a brand-new 28mm Esotar Forty tweeter, a specially optimised 17cm woofer, classic Dynaudio first-order crossover topology and two unique high-gloss finishes - Grey Birch High Gloss and Red Birch High Gloss.

Chartwell LS6

British monitors gained an exceptional appreciation in the audiophile world. Many manufacturers of such sets have rich and interesting history, often intertwined with famous recording studios. Even today, in the offer of PMC or ATC there is a sharp line dividing the consumer and professional segment. Obviously, every manufacturer dealing with professional equipment likes to boast about it everywhere, but it is also fair to say that many British companies have the right to do so. Among many institutions, one has become the real breeding ground of speaker talents - the British Broadcasting Corporation. Boxes originally developed for the BBC have 'that something' - the sound which is difficult to replicate even today. Most of the engineers have abandoned the old way of building the speakers, but a few companies are still faithful to those proven solutions. Graham Audio is one of them.

Focal Utopia III Evo

Focal is expanding its Utopia III line with a special edition - Utopia III Evo. Since 2008, when Utopia III was launched, Focal's technological heritage has continued to grow. It was therefore essential for Focal to integrate its most recent innovations into this exceptional collection. Scala and Maestro are the first two models to inaugurate the launch of this line's new edition, Utopia III Evo. The acoustics engineers at Focal have never stopped refining their research in order to push the limits of acoustics. As such it was essential for Focal to integrate its latest technological innovations into this extraordinary line. Utopia III marks an evolution which has started with the first two models in the line. Scala and Maestro are the loudspeakers to inaugurate this special edition, their previous incarnations will be removed from our catalog. The changes are mainly to the speaker drivers, but we have also updated the crossover and finishes.

Monitor Audio Silver

Groundbreaking design changes and extensive engineering research has led to a completely revised Silver series of loudspeakers from Monitor Audio which now caters for all two-channel hi-fi and surround applications. Launched at the Munich High End event, the nine model range has been created with contemporary living very much in mind. Two compact stand-mount options and a choice of three slimline floorstanders take up the minimum of space yet produce a big sound, while the Silver FX wall-mount and two center channel speakers are perfect for discreet AV installations. The Silver series is completed with a powered subwoofer, featuring onboard DSP for resounding bass down to a staggering 22 Hz. Magnetic grille fixings on all models ensure an elegant baffle aided by rear mounting of the proprietary HiVe II ports.

Xavian Ambra

Whenever I hear about the possibility of reviewing Xavian speakers, I'm already enthusiastic. These speakers are designed to stand out from the mass-produced crowd, but this is not the end of the story. As almost every review begins with the company's history, this time I'll skip the story about a charismatic audiophile who moved to Czech Republic from Italy for his wife, hired talented carpenters and so on... One can just visit Xavian's official website or take a closer look at its products to realize that we have some seriously specialized activity here. In Xavian's speakers there is no cheap plastic, gimcrack, drivers for half a dollar or wood-like veneer that comes out of the printer. Roberto Barletta doesn't design the speakers that will work with any cheap receiver, and the tuning of each new model takes several years on average. Perhaps that is why every new product and every major change in Xavian's catalogue is a big deal. The introduction of Perla and Orfeo monitor speakers was just such a step change. Now new boxes joined the family.

Audiovector QR1

Audiovector is a company which doesn't need an extra philosophy - what it already has is enough to tell the story. And the story was mainly created by one man - Ole Kliffoth. He is responsible for most of the solutions Audiovector uses in its speakers, including five foundations of corporate technology - ADC (Active Direct Concept), IUC (Individual Upgrade Concept), LCC (Low Compression Concept), SEC (Soundstage Enhancement Concept) and NES (No Energy Storage). In conjunction with other features, they have one job - to make the sound faster, more direct and more dynamic. Audiovector's products are easy to recognize because of the curved side walls, metal panels with drivers and various, sometimes very bold, finishing versions.
