NOW YOU CAN BUY OUR HIGH-END LOUDSPEAKERS FROM SERIES GRACIOSO AND MAESTOSO HANDCRAFTED IN EU FOR BEST PRICES EVER. Why the direct sales of our High-end lines loudspeakers? Our decision is well thought and we decided for the direct sales, because we know that direct sales is the only way, customers get the best product for their money and the best after purchase service, when purchasing our exclusive High-end loudspeakers. Furthermore, every AP speakers model are a detailed hand work, we put at least 50 hours of hand work of different specialists in creation of AP High-end loudspeakers. From wood specialists, electronic construction, design solutions, testing and quality control. All parts are manufactured in EU and all supplied parts are of the highest quality, which inevitably means high supply and production costs. In conclusion final production costs of Gracioso and Maestoso loudspeakers are also inevitably high. Our policy from the start of Acoustic Preference company, has always been to maximize benefits and satisfaction of our customers, and in our opinion, direct sells is the only fair way to deliver High-end hifi equipment directly from our company to your homes with no extra margins and for approx. 50% lower prices. Are our products still in High-End product class, nevertheless the prices are evidently better? Because the high volume of manual work put in the making of our speakers, the production in large batches is not possible. Each pair of our speakers is exclusive product that can be produced annually within a max. few hundred pairs. A few highly skilled experts are responsible for the composition of the speakers and every pair of our loudspeakers is handcrafted on customers demand. Moreover, the customers get the same quality product for approx. 50% lower price, which means that AP loudspeakers are of course still exclusive High-end product, but for much friendlier and more affordable price. Thus we can legitimately claim, that with the purchase of Acoustic Preference loudspeakers our customers get the highest rank of high-end speakers for affordable price, that are made in small production numbers, handmade and very exclusive. Does the quality remain the same? It is very important to point out, that the speakers are identical to those in the tests, so the new prices will not bring any change in quality. Quality is only improving with age, as they have now been in production for the third year, and in the meantime many things were learned or the processes improved, to achieve an even better final result. Due to bad experiences with shipping the first pairs of speakers around the world in cardboard packaging, the packaging into wooden boxes was introduced. That's one of the reason, we did not have any transportation accidents or injuries since. That is how we ensure that our transportation is risk free and 100% save. How do you know how they sound, before you decide for a purchase? Moreover, we make sure that the loudspeakers are regularly sent on tests to various recognized experts in the world, to make your purchase decision easier. At the same time the tests results also give us needed feedback and confirmation that we made really superior speakers. What are the main advantages of buying directly from the manufacturer? There are a lot of advantages of direct buy. One of them is obviously much friendlier price, but there are also others, also important advantages.

World Premiere
Acoustic Preference Maestoso 2.0
Amazing imaging, top down coherence and stunning cabinetry come together.
Review By Jeff Rabin

I can’t recommend a visit to Slovenia highly enough. It is, quite simply, my favorite European nation but I digress. This is after all a speaker review. With the help of an well-charged electric screw driver, a chisel, a pair of scissors and mild damage to a vertebra I care about I was soon able to eviscerate these gorgeous speakers from their immense and immensely sturdy, reinforced plywood crates. Never, ever, have I seen anything better packed.

Still, somehow, I managed to depress the 28mm Morel soft domed tweeter, making a small, ugly depression in its inky blackness. Gratefully, judicious use of the prized Dyson vacuum cleaner returned the tweeter to its proper shape, but I will say I have never held a vacuum cleaner with such care or fear.

Once unpacked, I dragged – the crates weighed a ton too – and placed them on my drive on the way to be stored in the garage. I ought to have placed them in the garage for safe storage but they were heavy and I was very keen to hear what 16,900 Euro of speaker sounded like.

The sound stage widened to fill the room, stretching well beyond the outside of the speakers and reaching far behind their lovely faces. Rarely heard detail integrated into the mix without drawing attention to itself or being lost in the shuffle.
I could go on, but in summary, the Maestoso’s are a very balanced speaker with, perhaps, a somewhat dry bass, though the bass on my Tannoys may just be a tad overblown. Never do they sound over-etched, honky, or shrill. They may not rock with JBL horns, but they were never meant to. What they excel at is their midrange without highlighting the mid-range by bringing too much or too little attention to the treble and the bass. Quite simply, they just do things right.

While they are not a rock and roll speaker, I don’t think that was the designer’s purpose. Instead neutrality and a certain way of lessening listener fatigue seem to be the order of the day.

Value is in the eye of the beholder? I suppose that is so, so far as it goes. But it would be a very strange fellow that valued a beat up Fiat Panda over one of Aston Martin’s latest. But there is also truth to the saying, if you have to ask the price, you can’t afford it. The value, not the price, of these speakers lays somewhere in between. Never have I seen better cabinetry. Never have I dragged heavier speakers into my lounge. And never have I been graced with either a speaker as current hungry as these are or better top down coherence, amazingly bettering my Tannoys in their imaging, something that I had believed Tannoy had a lock-hold on. But are they worth what Acoustic Preference asks for them? To quote my other favorite philosopher, but without the benefit of translation, Wovon man nichtsprechenkann, darüber muss man schweigen.
