Reference One

The Reference One loudspeaker can deliver an entire jazz band or even a symphonic orchestra into your living room or studio. The frequency and dynamic range are so wide, that any instruments and music genre can be played effortlessly with no compromise. The specially designed standing wave-free cabinet and the phase-coherent crossover are perfectly matched to these world-class drivers to create a realistic, transparent and masterfully balanced sound.

The high definition pair-matched drivers, the acoustically separated and hardwired (no PCB) high-end crossover and the precision tuning deliver exceptional details, coherence and breathtaking separation in the whole audio range, therefore the speakers can transfer not only the emotional content of your recordings but the original mood and acoustical environment as well. You can feel yourself right where the recording has been made.

Our invention, the “Direct Coupled Vented Box” creates uncolored, articulate and deep bass down to 28Hz! The low end stays uncolored and perfectly controlled without getting weak and makes the Reference One able to communicate the difference between different bass guitars and perfectly position bass instruments as well in its 3D sound stage. The front-firing port is responsible for the phase correct bass- and mid-range response and makes the cabinet less picky to the room acoustics and placement than conventional designs.

Conventional loudspeakers suffer from phase issues as well. During the design process of Reference One, we were paying special attention to the phase linearity, i.e. the different frequencies should arrive at the listener during the same time. This precision has been realized in the aura-like appearance of the singer’s voice, the deviceless natural sound, and in the representation of the lifelike, room-filling and three-dimensional sound stage, which are the privileges only of the World’s finest loudspeakers.
