To the age its art,
to art its freedom.
We love crafting loudspeakers. We always know that every piece will arrive at your home according to our latest highest standard of technology and performance abilities. For ALL kinds of music, no matter what your musical preferences are. We don’t believe in changes just for the sake of changing. When our founder and designer Peter Gansterer creates a new speaker line, there is always a pioneering and profound technical reason for it.
First there is the vision. Then there is the exploring of options how to realize the idea. Then the realizing of technical feasabilities and their sorting out. Long-term strategy, modesty and our visionary thinking, durable core team enable the sustainable certitude of our stable, independent company, commiting our 34rd year for the love of music.
Our Beethoven Concert Grand Reference™ is a no-compromise loudspeaker, breaking grounds in setting new standards in state-of-the-art music reproduction.
To say only that the design goals for such a speaker were high efficiency, outstanding dynamic range, excellent low bass extension, and ultra-wide bandwidth from a reasonably compact enclosure, misses the larger point. The Beethoven‘s overriding goal is to produce music on such a completely convincing scale that it will transform the listening room and transport the listener.
At the heart of the design stand our brandnew spidercone drivers, one 6 inch midrange and three 7 inch woofers, all with our patented flat Spidercone within a new construction, consisting of 2 distinct cones – the all new Composite Cone. The plane surface of the spidercone offers the advantage of precise, piston-like movement.
Why Would We Name a Speaker Line after a Painter?
It seemed only natural to name the absolute Reference Vienna Acoustics has ever created in homage to one of the most thrilling artists the city has ever unleashed – a man whose immense achievements in visual art were profoundly inspired by music.
Born just south of the capital in 1862, as a teenager Gustav Klimt studied architectural painting in Vienna before launching his early career as a painter of murals and ceilings. Before Klimt reached his thirtieth year, he had earned recognition from Austria’s emperor and a recommendation to join the faculty of Vienna’s prestigious Academy of Fine Arts. But such a conventional career was not to be for this passionate innovator.
