As distinguished as the look was also the sound of the finite element module LS (18000 euros the pair). Their parade discipline was the first-class in all respects, as massive as multi-layered bass range, a real treat, especially in relation to the dimensions.

While ASW almost abundantly when his Magadis trumpet belonging to the upper class of the sheer size and number of form elements, the Brilon is company finite element in their top of the line active part of much more subtle works.
The optical performance is shaped by Bauhaus-inspired simplicity and functional elegance. There are no curves or great ornaments. Completely different proportions (less highly, for significantly lower) Additionally reinforce this impression. Knapp and eloquently also the name: LS module. Sounds like engineering and technology building block. And that hits the nail on the head.
In practice, the altitude difference of less than half a meter makes a significant difference: while seated listeners about the finite can easily overlook, the ASW is more like a room divider that it significantly restricts the view.
Who now thinks the Beefy ASW would have in terms of bass depth front nose, takes a look at the measurement reports better. Although the 26 Hertz Magadis in itself already represent a dream value, the finite with fabulous 22 Hertz can settle considerably.
These abyssal blackness is ensured by an electronic equalization including two ice power amplifiers per box (license bang & Olufsen) 500 Watts each, which gives the side, provided by scan speak bass drivers (two per box) draught comparable the the huge, legendary Quadral Titan from the early 80’s features.
Extensive setting options to adjust the bass range to the conditions of the user conveniently performed via a supplied cable remote control are welcome side effect of activation. This way, you can effectively compensate for different listening distances as well room properties.
Only expecting a unproblematic room or a makeshift plugs to the bass reflex tubes is operators of the ASW. Tone controls are to non-specific for this purpose.
To prevent that the enormous housing vibrations of a such a powerful bass Department (maximum up to 108 decibels) pull the other frequency areas affected, the bass Chamber of ceramic balls is partially decoupled from the front part of the housing. There is a compact two way system, its driving IC also come from ScanSpeak. The dominant frequency range and the mid-range a paper cone that is widely used in high circles is responsible for the heights a sophisticated metal dome.
The Centre high-frequency unit is controlled via a richly stocked passive crossover. The handling is no different from the conventional passive boxes up on the power supply and the setting options. The signal is supplied as usual via speaker cable, with the amplifier of the user is much less asked readable on the low basses and increasing impedance.
The pickup of the bass signal is carried out for the listener subtly inside boxes. The component activation leaves him the usual opportunities to exert influence through amplifiers and cables and associates it with the well known advantages of the active technique in the bass range.
As distinguished as the optics, also the sound was the LS module. The lively, forward-driving kind of ASW it opposed maximum relaxation and sounded in all openness wonderfully gentle and controlled. Their parade discipline was the first-class in all respects, as massive as multi-layered bass range, a real treat, especially in relation to the dimensions.
On all Spectra across the highest sovereignty impression, even if the ASW accented brought sometimes still details to hearing. How it looked with the spaciousness and who ultimately was – see post “Listening comparisons and amplifier recommendations”.
