Up for sale are an exotic set of speakers from Austrian manufacturer Trenner & Friedl.
The fronts of the Gordon loudspeakers are clad in top grain leather while the sides are in a nice veneered wood. There are some rather minor dings, mostly from being larger, heavy speakers and I'll provide additional detailed photos of what I'm talking about. Really though, these speakers are incredibly articulate and have a somewhat "laid back" sound to them. Certainly not bright at all. The sound stage is readily outside the width of the speakers and it's got depth to die for!
These are a bass reflex speaker with the ports and additional tweeter firing back against the wall, so placement will vary the pronunciation of the mid-bass on down with proximity to the wall.
The Gordons are a 3-way vented system
with a very rigid cabinet. The wooden side and back finish has seven
layers of lacquer applied wile the fronts are clad in leather.
Just below the rear firing tweeter is a series of vents for the midrange chamber.
Internal wiring is Cardas SE9 cable finished to Cardas pure copper speaker terminals (bi-wire sets).
The crossovers use High quality handcrafted Mundorf components.
