Speaker System of the Year 2014

Remarkable Success of the CARDEAS plus+

Not only in the United States and Europe do AUDIO PHYSIC loudspeakers enjoy an outstanding reputation amongst audiophiles; the company's loudspeakers are building an increasing following in Asian markets as well. Currently our top model, CARDEAS plus+, was recognised in China at the "International High-End Audio Visual Show" in Guangzhou with the coveted "Speaker System of the Year" award. This puts the CARDEAS plus+ on the Top Ten of the HiFi Equipment Awards in China.

AUDIO PHYSIC conquers Down Under

VIRGO 25 plus+ review in “Audio Esoterica“ 6/14

Some quotations from the author Edgar Kramer:

“The VIRGO 25 plus+ presents an open and thoroughly spacious soundfield with nil loss of centre image specificity. Feed them Roger Waters’ Q-Sound Amused to Death and we were treated to spatial feats that rivalled the very best speakers we’ve had in-house.“

“I was also impressed with the VIRGO’s rendering of instrumental tone/timbre. Acoustic guitar, in particular, from master Eric Clapton in his Unplugged release, or French maestros Luc and Lagrène in Duet, came through with sharp transient attack and with the full-bodied resonant sound of the instrument’s cavity, soundboard and string.“



More quotations from the author Edgar Kramer

“The VIRGO 25 plus+ is a whole lot more speaker than a brutish amalgam of cheap drivers and cabinetry... it’s the product of skilled engineering, it features high quality drivers, and is beautifully styled and finished while presenting a relatively small, room-friendly footprint. Sonically, it performs sublimely.“


„The 25-year landmark represents a silver anniversary but, in my opinion, the VIRGO 25 plus+ is surely more deserving of gold.“

Impressive test result for the AVANTERA plus+ in "Hörerlebnis" Magazine (Edition 85)

"Forever young" was the title that Hörerlebnis publisher Marco Kolks gave the test report of the AVANTERA plus+. Manfred Diestertich, head of development, adjusted many of the small and larger turn screws on this speaker, giving AVANTERA, already a widely recognised product, a considerable boost. He was successful in once again improving upon the outstanding basic virtues of the model – whilst leaving the tonal balance untouched.

“The enhancements are on the inside. The use of new absorption materials and the exchange of components on the crossover network lead to a noticeable sound enhancement.”

AUDIO PHYSIC once more achieves these sound enhancements by paying painstaking attention to seemingly minor details and by systematically taking into account the interplay of all these details. The AVANTERA plus+ redefines the frontiers in spatial presence and in the rendering of the most intricate facets in this class. In doing so, the AVANTERA plus+ is ”a modest lady. Mind you: not a diva. The loudspeaker can be placed uncritically in the auditory space ... .” “The AB comparison quickly draws out the differences between the basic model and the Plus version. After just a few measures, you are already impressed by an incredibly relaxed, more sophisticated and even more spatial sound image.”

The conclusion by Marco Kolks:

“The Plus version fully lives up to the AVANTERA model. In many areas such as resolution, sharpness of contours, the newcomer is an enhancement compared to the original version made in Brilon. In final analysis, it is clearly the better loudspeaker, and with its act of rejuvenation, it will remain youthful for a long time to come.”
