VIENNA BACHS AND MAESTRO
small speaker size and the absolutely beautiful cabinets! I cannot even begin to tell you just how wonderful these speakers sound. The sound stage is the best I have ever heard for this type of speaker and size. The mid range is in a word is intoxicating. The bass response is exactly where it should be; not muddled or weak but punched when it needs too. The Bach uses a silk tweeters and it sounds as smooth as silk, but not syrupy. The tweeter just doesn’t beat you up and is easy to listen to for hours and hours. The Bach has two drivers per cabinet; one tweeter and one 7 inch midrange. The bass is ported in the back.
As far as the construction of the speakers, all I can say is they are works of art. The craftsmanship of these speakers is absolutely second to none. They are as much a joy to look at as listen too!!
1. You MUST have a quality amp to drive them; otherwise you may not be impressed.
2. They are particular on how you position them (down to the 1/8 of an inch).
3. Fill the bottoms of each speaker (as recommended with sand); it makes a difference.
4. Use the spikes provided, it makes a difference
