acuhorn invites to HIGH END2005. acuhorn manufacture has a pleasure to invite You to the premiere presentation of our newest model acuhorn grand biancore155. The loudspeakers are a true dipol, a genuine design by acuhorn, offering a real feast of sound reproduction playing together with KR Audio great tube amplifiers. "Now music is reproduced in the manner I have always dreamt of".

The system was composed of:
speakers acuhorn grand biancore155
tube amplifier KR Audio Kronzilla SX
source Audio Aero Capitole MKII 32bit/192kHz
cables Siltech G5 series
shelving Copulare
damping elements Fast Audio

The showroom of acuhorn was very puristic. One could listen to classical music delivered in cultured and well harmonised presentation. The system was very short, composed of three pieces: the dipol acuhorn grand biancore155 were connected to power amplifier KR Audio Kronzilla SX interconnected with the source without the pre amplifier. The sound was considered the best in the show by many visitors and audiophiles that came to the audition.

"The best sound we found in the retreat on the ground floor, offered definitely the most complete sound of the show, with the great spaciousness and depth of soundstage, the music that the loudspeakers produced was High-End to the highest level, in fact it was the best sound I heard on the show, with single tonality extension drivers that proved to be successful. Slim, 1.5 meter high loudspeakers with 100 dB efficiency per 1 Watt were presented with 42 Watts SET which was enough to offer solid dynamics and huge acoustic pressure. We listened exclusively to classical and acoustic music and the sound possessed the immense power in spaciousness and depth of soundstage, the system had unimaginable ability to locate separately different voices and instruments from each other without an artificial sharp contour. Ticket brand High price class."
Trond Saether, audiophile.no

"First off, these acuhorn grand biancore 155 poses as tall and slender dipoles in elegantly made enclosures. Their narrow footprint offsets the amazingly wide and full-bodied sound that was recreated in this room. Driven by KR Audio's humongous 22-watt 1610 tubes (photo right) employed in their Kronzilla SET amplifier this was certainly one of the better sounds at the show."
Clement Perry, Stereo Times
