- Data sheet
Housing made of aluminium have thinner walls than those made of wood in General and achieve a more favourable ratio between gross and net volume, what is particularly noticeable on shallow models about the AP 3 by Piega from the Switzerland.
The approximately triangular cross section allows a multifunctional accommodation, where looks upright as across equally well. A convenient wall mounting serve u-shaped metal frame, allowing for a convenient orientation towards the listening position.
Piega branched out the spectrum on two small low-midrange driver, to achieve a more favorable ratio between actuator and diaphragm area. The in-house Ribbon tweeter in addition one of the best in the world, indisputably.
That here for surprisingly little money top tweeter Potter, was listening to right off the bat. So fine and filigree, so inimitable high resolution and yet always distinguished dome not sound rarely, at least in this League.
The surprisingly adult for boxing this volume class and dröhnen-free bass response could be absolutely to hear, and so a highly pleasant mixture of fresh, neutral and never painful precision managed the silver triangles at the end. To round out the deep bass, the Swiss provide a woofer, see post “More fun in the bass”.
