The Brodmann Acoustics and Electrocompaniet Room
Brodmann is unique in designing a loudspeaker where the only driver on the front is the tweeter. I was told it goes low enough so that mounting the mid-woofers on the sides does not compromise imaging. It sounds odd to me, but then I am not a speaker designer. The proof of the pudding is in the eating, and nothing was out of place with these speakers. They were very relaxed, and while imaging was not pinpoint, the soundstage was very convincing. The treble was silky smooth. Shown below on the outside are the Vienna Classic Model VC7s ($34,000/pair) and on the inside the Festival Model F1s ($4000/pair). Did I mention that Brodmann loudspeakers are used for sound reinforcement in Salzburg’s Grand Festival Hall? The speakers were driven by the Electrocompaniet AW180 monoblocks ($19,850/pair).
The source was the Electrocompaniet EMP2 multi-format player ($3995).
The preamplifier was the Electrocompaniet EC4.6 ($5129).
