It’s called contrast: 7000 tons of pressure and these membranes, which are only 10 microns thin – Piega mixes from a fine level box. You want to distrust their outer beauty. But to all load the coax 30.2 is also still honest, loyal, and ennobled with inner values.
Is a life as a pensioner – it desirable? The question must be allowed. Especially in one so beautiful country like the Switzerland.
A concrete case: Aldo Ballabio is 67 years old and recently retired. This is tragic – fu? r his former employer. Aldo was almost irreplaceable: the man folded with Piega the ribbons. That sounds like a child work, almost in the sense of do? tchenkleben. In fact there could be nothing better in the world of the speaker construction: in Aldo’s hands, the power was uber the legendary Coaxial Ribbon by Piega. No one mastered this art as he. The CEO Leo Greiner and Kurt Scheuch will have cried as he celebrated his farewell.
Actually it has not played. The duo Greiner / SCHEUCH was natu? course clever enough to make an apprentice on the side of Aldo now folding the Ribbon , sets, connects with signalling pathways and screwed into a socket. Mario is not only the successor of the great Aldo, but also his son. A generational, a transfer of know-how as a hundred years ago.
This little story of fu? sue us in mind, knowledge in the home of Piega how unique the family band is just off Sai? packaging. Even if all the technical data in maximum depth of detail in a computer program were deposited–nothing could replace the practical knowledge of the beautiful but also delicate ribbons. That makes basic sympathetic Piega already from this perspective. The Swiss also know, on what really matters to the good sound , boosts the sympathy levels.
Piega coax 30.2: construction
What they, however, slightly down: Piega loudspeakers are what is called commonly “Finance-intensive”. Here is not produced by the rod, the Coaxial Ribbon cut off all forms of mass production – average only one occurs on a weekday. The new Floor stander coax 30.2 cost as some 8,000 euros. You don’t see that at first glance, but it can be fu? choose and above all listen. In addition, anyone who ever has encountered a Piega-speaker, experienced a strange deja-vu feeling. Because the Swiss have not indiscriminately new variants on the market. A Piega loudspeaker is a classic from birth.
This is true also fu? r the new coax 30.2: a u? brothel slim column speaker with two bass drivers , and the known Ribbon on top. Far and wide, no revolutions. Apparently. On second look perhaps even a ru? ckschritt. The now old coax 30 was built in a slightly different cut of housing. Who looks down from above on the transducer, the fastest recognizes the differences: the previous version had a trapezoidal, the new 30.2 has now again that case format, the Piega beru? hmt made – the lute shape. The coax 30.2 almost looks like a musical instrument.
Almost – however, the choice of material speaks. This enclosure is dry and acoustically neutral. Only fur own imagination: it needs the pressure of 7000 tons, from an aluminium block of three tonnes the basis of fu? r create a Piega housing. Then will be at the company’s headquarters in Horgen am to? yet intricately fine-tuned operated richsee. Piega calculates vibration behaviour of the enclosure with laser interferometry and determines the ideal interplay of membranes, housing, and last but not least the necessary damping with bitumen mats. Also a sign of honesty: Piega has recognized, that in this mix of the values just don’t u? ber who was well-known, established form of lute and is.
Scan speak – provides the bass diaphragms according to the Swiss. That sounds branchenu? view, it is but not quite: Piega has patented an in-house “MOM” drive to let the scan speak in the secrecy of the details just fu? r Piega manufacturing. The translation rather confused: “magnetic optimized motor”. The humor-gifted Presidents is to trust that they “MOM” rather than homage to their Mu? sheets and have forged the simultaneous confusion of the competition. In fact was the Chief developer Kurt Scheuch of less to equip the drive of the membranes with more Horsepower, but he was more concerned, to exploit the full measure in Newton meters. So to bring the torque on the road: the bass diaphragms should be not deeper, louder, but above all faster to keep the timing with the fast fleet Ribbon.
Piega coax 30.2: hearing test
Here are also the audible benefits. The coax 30.2 falls into the drawer of the sophisticated transducers – fascinating in all tonal and spatial Feinstwerten. At the first contact with the final stages in the stereoplay listening room we wondered u? ber the tend to be rather back? For example vote. The Piega with the first tone made it clear that “according to” fur more conspicuous value is. The direct competitors rejected significantly further from the dynamic window. For example, a B & W 804 diamond.
Who provides the two side by side, sees two extremely disparate interpretations of the principle speaker. In terms of membrane surface and space displacement is the B & W more than thirty percent u? ber the slender, delicate Swiss Tonku? artist. Who was gezu not to punch? outlawed, u? berflu? gelt but in other respects.
As a classic example, “La Mer” is used in late of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra under Herbert von Karajan EMI recording Debussy’s. Originally? planned accessible as quadraphonic noise and recorded, with much space information at extreme wide stereo image. On the B & W 804 diamond that had exactly those front full CinemaScope aesthetics, fu? r the Karajan today with Naseru? fight is considered.
The coax 30.2 revealed a completely different aesthetic intention, almost a different recording. The frantic-looking large spatial with their coarse, dynamic impulses was suddenly something very soft: velvet and unity. One spu? rte even 35 years after the recording that Karajan has worked out every phrase, every little dynamic form and also as wanted.
But “Velvet” does not mean the Piega snuck in as pleasing loudspeaker. On the contrary, it requires work: our test run showed that she needs time to play. Just as the right electronics. Tubes are good playmates, and the based fu is enormously important? r the unity of the figure.
It is worth also play with the perfect angle to the listening position. If you want, might sit a few centimetres of the membranes located directly in an intimate stereo triangle even at small levels. Wonderful: Had the quality of near field monitors from the Studio operation – a figure performance to the schools in our test. Since information was free suddenly, which you previously would have guessed not in Groove or bit-code. The coax 30.2 is a Swiss liberation hero.
