'Die Welt' impressed by LS1
2013, May 13th
The Munich High End show has been a huge success for us. To our surprise all 600 folders of the LS1 were already gone on the third day. Many listeners told us we had the 'best sound of the show'. Even German newspaper 'Die Welt' wrote about us! Quote: "The system (...) is the equal of systems of hundred thousands of Euros when it comes to aspects like neutrality, purity and naturalness of tone."

German 'AUDIO' raves about LS1
2013, April 12th
"Sensation in the measurement and listening room" states the largests German hifi magazine, 'AUDIO' on the cover page. Their measurement paragraph concludes: "The LS1 shows an excellent time and frequency response that rather reminds of electronic circuits and not of speakers". The graphs show an exemplary waterfall and step response. "The midrange shows almost no distortion even at 100 dB SPL. There is no compression at 100 dB". Editor in chief Bernhard Rietschel wrote: "Their natural sound and their unimposing, deep trueness kept overwhelming me and my colleagues". The article concludes: "The LS1 is by far the best speaker that AUDIO had the pleasure of reviewing in over 35 years; this especially in the two crucial audiophile disciplines of neutrality and detail reproduction."

TPM review in HVT
Our TPM cable was reviewed by Dutch hi-fi magazine HVT. Author Marnix Bosman referred to the story of Wisseloord Studio's, where 50 km of TPR was used during the rebuilding process. TPM is the high end 'home use' version of that cable, build with silver wire and teflon. Bosman writes: "I love the speed, transparency and neutrality of this cable. (...) Independent of the system, it always delivers a predictable quality."
