The Best!

the Coltrane Momento 2 was neutral, 3-D, spacious, alive, and astonishingly of a piece from top to bottom—excellent on digital and on an R2R recording of a jazz trio (where it was superb on bass, drum, and ride cymbal), and among the best I heard on my Sachmo LP. 

Great quote about our room at the Munich High End from Mr Jonathan Valin at The Absolute Sound. We are very happy to be part of ‘The Best’ section. Have a look closer here.

Coltrane Momento 2 & Mingus Twenty

Launching this May in Munich High End: Coltrane Momento 2 and Mingus Twenty.

Coltrane Momento 2 has all the upgraded detail such as first order crossover and Cell technology. It completes the Coltrane Series. 

Mingus Twenty is a celebration of our twenty years in High-End audio. Mingus was the first speaker our chief designer Leif Olofsson developed into production and now he created a new model in the same spirit, in a limited edition of 20 pairs.

We are having a sneak preview this week in Gothenburg celebrating our anniversary and launching two new CDs: Carousel with Rhythm Art Duo and Violin & Marimba with Duo Granmo-Berg.

There was a great party yesterday with live music from many of the artists of the albums including Daniel Berg, Tobias Granmo, Fredrik Duvling and Matti Ollikainen.

Guangzhou International Advanced Audio Exhibition 2018

We had a brilliant weekend at the Guangzhou International Advanced Audio Exhibition 2018. It is one of the bigger shows in Asia and it was packed most of the time. We played our Coltrane 3s  for the first time together with Swizz Goldmund Electronics which was a great combination along with Jorma Design Statement. The spectacular CD player is from French Metronome. As per usual when in China the audience is a great deal younger than in the West so good energy all round. 

Thank you to everyone involved!

“An all out and cutting edge loudspeaker system”

We can’t but agree on this quote about our mighty Coltrane 3 from the latest issue of Japanese Stereo Sound. We had some of the quotes translated for us and it’s high scores all around.

“It achieves an excellent signal-to-noise ratio to the ear, remarkably sharp focus with sophistication”

 

“It also delivers extraordinary linear characteristics throughout its extraordinary wide range”

Guangzhou Audio Video Fair 2016

We just had a fantastic weekend participating at the Guangzhou AV Fair. Great sound, great music, great people, everything you need for a perfect show.

Our Coltrane Supreme 2 had good company with CH precision electronics, a TechDas turntable that had a SAT tonearm. Impressive was the word we heard the most and we agree the sound was breathtaking, if we may say so ourselves.

Jörgen held a few presentations in front of the crowds of audiophiles. 

One can expect a lot of people in big city like Guangzhou but the visitor count was extremely high this time! 

A big thank you to everyone involved. We are looking forward to next year.
