From Review Page on Gottenburg-Odin
Enter the Gottenburg Odin. It manages all of the things a mammoth statement speaker should, but that's not what makes it truly great. So often a large speaker, horn or otherwise, is thought to be a proclaimer of maximum volume, realistic dynamics, and thunderous bass. Some even manage those. Well the Gottenburg handles those elements with ease, but it goes further. What it does better than any speaker in my experience are harmonic textures that exist in a live hall; those subtle undertones and overtones that make all notes richer, not just those low on the chart. Think of it as the difference between playing a C chord on a spinet versus a C chord on a 9 ft Hamburg Steinway. It's the richness of real music.
You'll never know just how powerful a cello is until you hear it on the Gottenburgs. (Richter on these is a physical experience.) It also manages to be seamless in the way that a single driver speaker is seamless ... incredible.
One can enjoy them near- or far-field (impossible with most horn designs), and when thunder and God's own fury needs to erupt from the Gottenburg, you will cower and rejoice.
