L’Instrument 8PS will reveal the perfection of sound produced by top source and amplification.
Viking Acoustics Instrument 8PS is a no-compromise approach to the high sensitivity true point source loudspeaker designed for today's reference tube amplifiers. The 8PS features the sonic attributes and beauty of heirloom tone-wood and the world's finest components.
Looking at 8PS It's easy to believe a high-end full ranger mounted in a large turned wood horn will produce word-class high definition midrange. Exceptional vocal articulation and pinpoint imaging. What's surprising is the absolutely huge soundstage and staggering bass produced by 8PS' bass-horn.
The AlNiCo horn Super tweeter is hidden behind the lower part of the horn utilizing the outside flair of the for dispersion and corrected phase timing!

Now after a year of owning my L' Instrument 8PS speakers, I must say they are amazing speakers. I really can't explain how much I enjoy listening to them -- I am out of words to be honest to explain the detail these speakers have. Thanks for providing such a wonderful product.
