Does a good loudspeaker really always have to be as ugly as they come or at least difficult to integrate into a living atmosphere in line with the current standards of interior design?

Audio Physic‘s “Big“ Classic :: A Sound Wolf in Designer Dress

An affordable high-end loudspeaker or an expensive design piece? When it comes to Audio Physic's new "Classic 30", it's hard to say in which category it belongs, which is no surprise given that something like this doesn’t come along very often.

Forever young

He who stands still ... has alreadyfallen behind. It's a well-observed adagefrom the business world. Indeed, it is a soberreality. Because those who do not constantlyreinvent themselves in a highly competitivemarket and try to stay ahead of thecompetition by a nose, soon find their daysare numbered. This in light of the fact that inthe world of loudspeaker engineering,innovations seem few and far between. Howcould it be any other way?

An Element of Surprise

Audio Physic has pulled out all the stops by surprising us with its new Classic 10 and Classic 20 floorstanding loudspeakers. One highlight of these two models is the fact that they are both available with a pure glass surface but their real outstanding factor is their impressive sound, not to mention their price.

Audio Physic Step 25: Built for Speed

Nothing conveys the art and alchemy of high-end audio better, in my view, than the execution of a fine, two-way compact loudspeaker. More than any pull-outthe-stops floorstander, the stand-mounted two-way embodies one of audio’s most challenging balancing acts—engineering the artful sonic choices—deciding the criteria to emphasize or heighten, to limit, even ignore.

Sitara 25 :: Canada HiFi :: 06/2012

An Awesome New Speaker From Audio Physic

It was late in February when I received a much anticipated visit from Reinhard Goerner of Goerner Communication, the North American distributor for Audio Physic. Reinhard had driven from Montreal to my home, just outside Toronto, to personally deliver the set of Audio Physic Sitara 25 loudspeakers, for this review. A friendly conversation ensued, as Reinhard took the time to set-up the speakers in my listening room and explain the product. Not only had Reinhard delivered a brand new set but I greatly appreciated that he’d taken the time to give them an adequate break-in. Things were off to a good start.

You Little Wonder, You!

TAS’s 2011 Overall Product of the Year award winners, the $60k Magico Q5 and the near-$100k Rockport Altair, may be the highest-fidelity dynamic loudspeakers that a whole lot of money can currently buy, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t other cone speakers out there that do many of the things that the Magicos and the Rockports do, and for considerably less dough. Take, for instance, the new three-and-halfway floorstanding $27k Avantera from the 25-year-old German loudspeaker manufacturer, Audio Physic.

Even before this loudspeaker has arrived at the editorial office, a colleague of mine is standing in front of my desk with his eyes wide open: “I’ve heard you’re going to be reviewing a small Audio Physic model. Can I have it when you’re done with it?" These loudspeakers from the German town of Brilon certainly seem to have some charm ...

Technology with Passion

I am welcomed to the website by a huge “25”, happily filling the entire screen. Indeed, 25 years of Audio Physic is certainly a cause for celebration and the company from Brilon, Germany, is doing so by producing improved special editions of its most successful models. The latest model to undergo this special treatment is the Scorpio, which celebrated its world premiere in our listening room.

First it's time for us to add a few words of our own regarding this special occasion. We would like to wish Audio Physic a very happy anniversary and thank Manfred Diestertich, the chief designer, for not simply grasping for components provided by the limited number of suppliers, but using his own new ideas, where drivers, crossovers an cabinets are concerned.

EUROFIGHTER

Audio Physic Cardeas takes on the world

There something reassuringly European about the Audio Physic range. Elegantly designed, subtle and very well thought out, the range is well-built, priced intelligently and manages to be popular both with the flat-earth crowd (after a bit of quality away-from-the-wall speaker action) and collectors of high-end Americana wanting a loudspeaker that fits in with our European design sensitivities.

Audio Physic Sitara

It was 1973 when I first understood what a top-flight high-fidelity system could do. The speakers were the B&W DM70 hybrids: a 12" woofer in an imposingly wide cabinet, crowned by a curved eleven- element electrostatic panel.

Floorstanding loudspeakers in the price range of 2000 Euro are built by many large and small manufacturers. The question is, which of them sound really good? We tested ten candidates to get the answer.

Flaming Passion

The noblest task a loudspeaker can accomplish is to reproduce music as authentic as possible. If the loudspeaker is able to involve us emotionally as well as captivate our senses, it is the work of an exceptional talent which is mastered by very few.

The new Audio Physic Scorpio electrifies the senses of every music loving audiophile.

Virgo V :: Diapason :: 04/2008

Sept enceintes autour de 5000 €

Les enceintes haut de gamme apportent-elles une réelle plus-value par rapport à de très bonnes colonnes moins onéreuses ? Pas nécessairement : la musicalité et l’homogénéité ne sont pas qu’une affaire de coût. On rencontre cependant rarement, en dessous de 3 500 m, le niveau de classe sonore atteint par les produits que nous avons testés. Par ordre alphabétique, nous avons apprécié l’Audio Physic Virgo V que caractérisent à la fois l’ordre et la vitalité. Souverainement équilibrée, la B&W 803S séduit par sa limpidité, sa résolution naturelle et sa fiabilité à toute épreuve. La petite Kef 201/2 se distingue par son expressivité exceptionnelle, dans la meilleure tradition britannique. Enfin, plus exigeante, la Proac D28 se mérite, nécessitant une électronique à la hauteur.

The Finest Metal

It is nearly impossible to name another loudspeaker manufacturer whose products have been tested by us as often as Audio Physic loudspeakers, and yet the "Virgo" success model has only made it to our test room once before (the third incarnation in 1/2002). Now the fourth generation is ready for kick-off. However, in response to Asian markets where many people believe the number four to be unlucky, the Virgo is jumping from number three to number five and once again is clearing a path for highly interesting innovations.

Yara II Superior :: HomeVision :: 12/2007

Ihre Welt ist bunt

Viele Lautsprecher blenden mit auffällig gefälligem Sound. Das mag kurzfristig Aufmerksamkeit erregen, mit authentischer Musikwiedergabe jedoch hat das wenig zu tun. Die Audio Physic Yara 2 Superior blendet nicht, hält mit ihren Fähigkeiten aber auch nicht hinterm Berg. Ein bemerkenswerter Schallwandler.

Farben beeinflussen täglich unser Leben, ohne dass wir uns darüber Gedanken machen. Sie entscheiden mit darüber, ob wir uns wohlfühlen, sei es im Wohnumfeld oder in unserer Kleidung; aber sie bestimmen auch über uns. Ignorieren Sie mal eine rote Ampelleuchte. Das kann unangenehm enden. Auch Klangfarben besitzen eine gewisse Macht. Sind sie breit gefächert, ihr Bouquet reich, steigern sie den Genuss. Ist ihre Spannweite begrenzt, tönt Musik grau und wie beiläufig, verliert ihre Inhalte und damit an Unterhaltungswert. Blenden uns Klangfarben neonleuchtend hell, ohne das samtig warme Element natürlicher Farbschattierungen, heischt das Aufmerksamkeit, kurzfristig, letztenendes jedoch fehlt die musikalische Substanz, die Bodenhaftung…

Virgo V :: STEREO Review :: 10/2007

THE MIDRANGE KINGDOM

The Virgo has always held a special place in the Audio Physic product range serving as a perfect link to the larger models and incorporating sophisticated technology. The latest version does not fall short of the mark. Has the new Virgo hit the big time again?

Have we really jumped a Virgo generation without even realising it? To date we have been aware of the existence of a third version of the loudspeaker which has long become an Audio Physic benchmark for success. And now the fifth incarnation of the Virgo is standing before us. Yes you heard right! In response to Asian markets – many Asians believe that the number four is unlucky - Audio Physic took a jump from number three to number five. We figure that is what globalisation is all about, and without access to global resources the brand-new Virgo could not have possibly been built.…

»No loss of fine Detail« This statemente can still be found on the website of Audio Physic where for years on end the manufacturer made the theme central to the design of new loudspeakers…

KÖRPERWELTEN

Die Audio Physic Avanti schrieb Musikgeschichte. Die fünfte Generation ergänzt diese mit ihrer körperhaften Wiedergabe um das spannendste Kapitel.

Ersetzen Sie den Begriff „Reproduktion“ durch „Auferstehung“, und schon sind Sie dem Wesen der Audio Physic Avanti ganz nah. Diese Lautsprecher reproduzieren Musik nicht einfach – was Schallwandler ohnehin vor ungeheure und oft unlösbare Herausforderungen stellt –, sie hauchen Musik den Atem des Lebens ein, schenken Interpreten und Instrumenten Körper und Raum. Sind die Avantis die besten Boxen der Welt? Nein, auch sie besitzen – verzeihliche – Schwächen, doch beherrschen sie das Existenzielle, das wahrhaft Wichtige wie kein zweiter Schallwandler in ihrer Klasse. Was hebt sie so von anderen ab? Ein einzelnes Element zu nennen wäre so vermessen, wie Michelangelo auf die Fresken der Sixtinischen Kapelle zu reduzieren…

PERFECT IN ITSELF

With the Avanti 5 Audio Physic goes back to the roots and re-activates a driver design from HiFi pioneer times. It is this remarkable step which brings forth a trend-setting and relaxing sound.

HiFi journalists simply love to have Manfred Diestertich as a guest. After having worked for IQ for many years, he became Audio Physic’s chief designer where the high-end aficionado remained
true to his concept of lateral thinking and a constant source of new ideas and impetus in the pursuit of even better sound.
