OLD SCHOOL SPEAKERS MEETS HIFI OPULENCE
The most striking example we’ve found: Avantgarde Acoustic’s Trio Classico—a 5-foot-tall assemblage of injection-molded horns and German-engineered audiophile geekery. Each made-to-order unit blends the benefits of old-school horn design—efficiency, range, nuance—with hi-fi opulence like 27-ohm voice coils, 12-pound magnets, and Kevlar midrange cones. It’s like a live concert in a Henry Moore sculpture. Of course, people who can afford these can hire their own orchestra.
