CONCORDE MK II

Characteristics and sound properties

The CONCORDE MK II 3-way system may not be able to fly, but in terms of sound, it really soars. The mere shape and the drivers used give an idea of its qualities. The tailored baffle in the medium to high-frequency range produces optimised omnidirectional sound distribution one of the reasons why the sound distribution throughout the room is so smooth. Arranging all the drivers according to the d Appolito principle, reduces interference from floor and ceiling reflection. Two AL 200 8 Ohmaluminium bass drivers join forces to produce profound and yet precise bass reproduction thanks to the extra-large, flow-optimised bass reflextube. The two AL 130 8 Ohm mid-range speakers guarantee crisp mid-range sounds as a result of their stiff cones, long stroke and impedancecontrol ring.

At the top end of the frequency range we have used the innovative KE 25 SC 8 Ohm ceramic tweeter, which has been incorporated using a sophisticated crossaver arrangement to optimise timing. This sophisticated design of tweeter can be wired up to blend in from a very low level and, as with all the other drivers, produces extremely distortion-free sound even at high volume settings. Any defects in the source signal are laid wide open. Even at louder settings, listening to music remains a real pleasure. This is always a good sign that the baffle is working correctly and that nothing is being smuggled in that should not be there.

In the MK II version, a slight adjustment in the mid-range section of the crossover has enhanced the crossover range between the mid-range and tweeter.

The completely neutral tonality and the remarkable dynamic characteristics of this stand-up CONCORDE MK II cabinet make it an all-round talent for discerning listeners of all types of music.
Warning: This loudspeaker is as honest as they come and conceals nothing!

Extract from Klang & Ton 05/2000

"In terms of sound quality, the Concorde was an immediate success. It is a universally applicable speaker and reproduces all kinds of music without particular preferences.
It sounds the way all very good speakers sound. If the recording is boring, the reproduction is also boring and where the recording is very good, reproduction is excellent. Details come across extremely well and in a lively manner, the stage can be seen in your mind's eye in about the right proportions. What more could one demand of a good speaker system."
