The new larger woofer vents through the horn (bass-horn) along with the new tweeter mounted within the mouth of the horn. The horn overlaps the woofer to further augment bass and improve off-axis response. The Viking-Acoustics horn system is much more than a typical horn speaker which is often just horn loaded tweeter on top of a conventional loudspeaker: whereas, in Berlin R the horn is central to the entire loudspeaker's sonic performance and utilized by all the drivers from the lowest lows to the highest highs the entire frequency spectrum is maximized by the horn.

So, the next three nights I got them the rest of the way dialed in, and they started to settle into the room. What an amazing difference even after only about 7 or 8 hours. By hours 10 through 15, they are really showing their abilities.  I have never heard more amazing vocal reproductions. July London, Nat King Cole, Patricia Barber, Holly Cole, Nick Drake, Diana Washington, Billie Holiday, I can go on and on…it’s kind of spooky…

I’m very pleased with the low end, quick accurate and quite full for a relativity small speaker.  I must say, they are larger then I had imagined.  Oh, the wood work, amazing, I am so pleased with look of the wood, the perfect horns, it’s really quite amazing. More to come...

Berlin R loudspeaker named as one of top 7 finest loudspeaker systems in the world along with Living Voice's Vox Olympian, and Magico's S7 in 2015 by Audio Lifestyle Magazine.
