Audio connoisseurs will appreciate this proven approach to high end audio; a high quality monitor speaker placed on a tall stand. The small baffle minimizes reflections and the powerful 7” woofer delivers tailored output that compliments the typical room boost in the low frequencies. Freed from room acoustic concerns and by applying the same drivers and cross over technology as the new Twist, the Studio impresses with its open sound and controlled power. The Studio is hand made in Denmark using real wood veneers shaped on a specially designed German steam press and hand finished.
Studio quality drivers
Just like you would expect in a studio monitor, the Studio uses top of the range drivers that were designed according to the best Danish traditions. The special fibre blend woofer membrane gives exactly the right combination of stiffness and damping. The refined anodized aluminium dome tweeter achieves high levels of detail through its pistonic motion for the entire audible frequency range. The large non reflective chamber enables a low cross-over frequency for a seamless integration of the two drivers.
Laser cut from solid 6 and 8mm steel, welded together into one piece, and with a geometry of an I-beam, the stand is very rigid and heavy. Therefore, by mounting the Studio on the dedicated stand, the sound quality will be improved. Especially the bass range and imaging will become better defined due to the larger distance from the floor and added mass. The stand is 64cm high without spikes, and the baseplate measures 28 x 31 cm.
The room response
The sound quality of a loudspeaker is to a very large extent determined by how it radiates the sound into the 3 dimensions of a room. To bring the Studio sound to the next level, special focus has therefore been on the so called room response. We did actually rebuild our listening room to make it sound more neutral for this purpose. Improving the room response led to a low and steep 24dB/Oct Linkwitz-Riley cross-over. The result is a very clear and open upper midrange, without ever becoming aggressive.
