ZERO TA XD
Perfection comes from making complex things look simple and effortless. Does the semi-active ZERO TA reflect the many challenges that our engineers needed to master? No, and that's a good thing! Because the globally awarded cabinet design of the ZERO product line simply is: perfect. And so it was never put to question that we would take every effort necessary to create just one thought, when listening to the ZERO TA: perfect.
HIFI+ editor Alan Sircom ranks the ZERO TA among the most entertaining speakers ever reviewed, with an effortless sound that calls for a STRONGLY RECOMMENDED verdict! Full Review
ZERO 1 XD
More integrated, compact and simple and yet a veritable horn loudspeaker—to the very last decibel. The ZERO 1 is a dream come true — one that we have shared with many music lovers for over twenty years. Though fascinated, moved and amazed by our larger acoustic transducers we have always longed for a more compact horn loudspeaker to make the incomparable experience of Avantgarde Acoustic accessible to a wider audience of audio enthusiasts. The ZERO 1 opens up this new road with a revolutionary size simplified shape hassle-free setup and fully integrated processor and amplifier technology.
Opposites are simply fascinating us: A compact horn speaker with a capital sound performance. A distinctly reduced product design with downright lavish and sophisticated technology inside. That is the UNO. The entry into the cosmos of our classic horn loudspeaker designs, and yet already a statement that knows only few competition.
Welcome to the power of choice. The Duo XD is the actual version of the Duo, a horn system that is in the product portfolio since 1994. Featuring the same phenomenal spherical horn assembly combined with the significantly more powerful SUB231 XD subwoofer module. Born of the same heart, but with a different spirit. Darker. Sportier. Tauter.
Not following the easy road, but the proper one. In pursuit of a goal that only few will ever be able to reach: horn technology from bass to high range! And the DUO MEZZO reaches it easily and implicitly, even a brief look at it will directly tell. The visual result is demonstrative, agreed. But the MEZZO's sound stage and musical authority is equally so! We welcome you to the fascinating world of full-range horn loudspeakers.
Welcome to the most exhilarating, uncompromised, consequent, natural and outstanding speaker system in the world, the Trio. The one and only Trio. The ultimate dream system with no contenders. Let´s face it: the Trio is unique. Unique in its artistic design. Unique in its craftsmanship. Unique in its State–of–the–Art technology. Unique in its condensed–to–the–max spherical horn architecture. And last but not least: unique in a performance that is impossible to describe, transporting the listener to places far beyond everyday commodities. World off. Music on.
For TRIO we offer 3 Subwoofers:
Wherever a TRIO finds a new home, there is an appropriate bass solution available from Avantgarde Acoustic. Well understood: it is not always possible to go for the top level solution, means up to 6 BASSHORN modules. And it does not have to be! Even the SUB231 benefits from the same material pool of the larger horn loaded subwoofer variants. Because one thing should not be missed out, no matter how limited placement options may be: the power of palpable bass sound waves!
Sometimes it is a true pleasure for our engineers to pull out all the stops! For example when they see a really rewarding challenge in designing a horn loaded subwoofer with formidable low bass capacities that does not fill a wall at the same time. Because the result speaks for itself: an utterly uncompressed bass experience. And on top a cabinet design which directly expresses its inherent unrestrained power through the verve of its curved bass horn flare. What you can expect from the SHORT BASSHORN? A mature and perfected musical experience, formed by the concurrence of long-lived engineering expertise, enthusiasm for breaking new ground, and creativity
Why is the Basshorn a high end myth? Why is its nature of response so explosive, precise natural and pure? Why is any other bass technology – even the most elaborate conventional designs – so dramatically outperformed? Just look at it and you know why! The Trio with Basshorns probably is the most beautiful speaker from Avantgarde Acoustic™. But in respect to its holistic technology it is for sure the most perfect speaker system. Designed for people with an obsessive passion for music – from people who esteem the exceptional.
Pure pleasure. The Classico version of the Trio XD is the logical visualization of the outstanding technical features of the Trio speakers: to transform the art of simple music reproduction into an almost voluptuous experience involving all your senses.
The head says: This designer frame version uses the exact same horns and drivers and is technically identical to the standard Trio XD version with its straight frame structure. The heart says: This is as thrilling and exciting as a real concert - for both your ears and eyes!
TRIO LUXURY EDITION 26
The TRIO from Avantgarde Acoustic is probably the most exhilarating speaker system of all time. An enduring icon of supreme craftsmanship and infinite precision. It has become an internationally recognized cult object, a design benchmark and a synonym of the perfect balance between purity and performance. So when we embark on a mission to refine the refined, you can expect a level of perfection never seen or heard of before – this is the story of the Trio Luxury Edition 26, STRICTLY LIMITED TO ONLY 26 PIECES to honour the Company’s 26th anniversary.
CRAFTSMANSHIP CREATES LASTING VALUE
Even more so than the choice of materials, the workmanship will determine how precious an object is perceived. Only when the veneer sheets are perfectly aligned, we will sense the warmth and durability of the precious German smoked oak surfaces. Only hand polishing the V2A stainless steel parts will single out the solidity and elegance of the material, augmented only by the optional 24K gold plating, another hand-made process. And even where just the ear will sense luxury, only a painstakingly monitored and precise winding process will finally render the pure and lucid sound that our hand made super-capacitors permit. True luxury knows only one goal: perfection.
