A Look at Two High-Performance, High-Design Speakers
It’s fair to say most people like music. Music can both energize and relax, make us dream, and transport us to a different time and place. Some people are more passionate about music than others. Some people are incredibly passionate about how they listen to their music. Just like foodies saying, “life’s too short to eat bad food,” there are audiophiles that say, “life’s too short to listen to music on $10 earphones.”
For these lovers of music and excellent audio, the quest to find better audio performance never ends. Audiophiles are always looking for a sound quality upgrade, and they thoroughly enjoy the journey to audio nirvana.
The team at Cloud 9 Integrated Systems works with some of the finest names in high-end home audio. In this blog, we’d like to introduce you to two brands known for high performance and high design: Steinway Lyngdorf and Wisdom Audio.
If you’re an audiophile looking for a hi-fi audio upgrade for your Edwards, CO listening room, read on to learn more about these masterpieces of audio engineering and design. Even if you’re not an audiophile, you will appreciate the art and engineering behind these products.
Steinway Lyngdorf is a collaboration between renown piano company Steinway and Sons and Lyngdorf Audio, a Danish company founded in 2005. The goal is to produce loudspeakers and equipment that not only perform at the highest levels but are also beautiful in design – much like a Steinway piano.
The company started out in the ultra-high-end and continues to make products for those that demand the best. But one of Steinway Lyngdorf’s latest products, the Model O, offers stunning performance in a smaller package that might be more palatable for your Vail Valley home.
The Model O features a powerful aluminum 8-inch bass driver, 6-inch midrange, and a large Air Motion transformer tweeter. With a cabinet sheathed in MDF and aluminum and finished in piano black, this speaker is not meant to be hidden; it is intended to be seen and heard. While a full-range speaker, because of its unique design Steinway Lyngdorf says you can place it against a wall and still get excellent bass performance without subwoofers. That means the speakers can be placed in a room and become part of your elegant décor. Steinway Lyngdorf products also offer RoomPerfect calibration which lets you position speakers wherever you want within a room, adjusting the audio to optimize the sound within your space.
For a different take on high-end audio, we introduce Wisdom Audio. The company excels at high-performance audio with fast, accurate speakers that are at home with both two-channel music and home cinema. They offer a variety of freestanding and architectural speakers and are committed to delivering ultimate sound quality without taking up room space or calling significant attention to where the sound comes from.
Wisdom Audio specializes in planar magnetic thin-film technology, which is known for extremely nimble frequency response and creating a room-filling, wide and deep soundstage. Speakers like Wisdom Series LS3m range are ideal for mounting behind acoustically transparent screens for a discreet appearance but deliver unmistakable power – up to 127 dB at 12 feet! These speakers will expose every detail or nuance within the music or multichannel movie soundtrack.
Wisdom Audio also takes a systems approach to their products. There are matching amplifiers and room controllers with Dirac Room Correction to make the speakers sound their best, wherever they’re placed.
Whether you are a diehard audiophile or just love great sound and music, you owe it to yourself to experience true high-end audio.
