j'ai eu l'occasion de discuter avec l'un des fondateurs de la marque il rentrait d'un salon Ă l'Ă©tranger voici en partie sa rĂ©ponse Ă un Ă©change de mail pour une utilisation Ă©galement en HC. SI j'apprĂ©cie le haut rendement en stĂ©rĂ©o, la dynamique, la rapiditĂ© et la projection des voix me semblent particuliĂ¨rement adaptĂ© Ă une config HC.
thank you for your enquiry about WLM products.
Before 1 hour I come back from the Audio Show Poland where we have last weekend 2 WLM demo-rooms. It was a very great successful show for us and we have received two times "best sound of show" from the visitors and the polish Hifi magazines.
We had present on the Warszawa Audio Show in a large room (approx. 75 - 80 mâ€ť) the GRAN VIOLA Sign. + DUO18 + SYSTEM CONTROL V. This was the reference demo of the whole show. One guy of the magazine means about this setup: we have never heard before such a musical sound and after WLM speakers long times come no other brand. But for me the most fun was the presentation with our smallest model DIVA MONITOR. The visitors were shocked when she heard these speakers. We presented it in setup with a DUO subwoofer.
With our smallest WLM speaker model DIVA MONITOR we are since 2 month the new Top-Reference from STEREO magazine (Germany). You can see the review (and the English translate) in the attachment.
But now to your question:
Beside WLM I am the owner of a High End studio in Austria ( www.fricco.com
<http://www.fricco.com/> ). I also had sell Tannoy speaker (only the Prestige range) for many years. About the design I know it was hard to sell. When we developed the DIVA speakers I had only one aim: the DIVA or the DIVA MONITOR must sound better than any Tannoy model from the Prestige Series. We have compared it so much and the sounds from the DIVA models are much better! The DIVA have more space, is faster and more open and the bass is more controlled. The DIVA speakers have the same family sound as our more expensive models from the Reference and the Signature series. There are better but also in a other price class.
In my studio I have also a WLM multi-channel setup. I like 4.0 or 4.1 setups but you can make with WLM also a 5.1 multi-channel system. (front speaker DIVA floor stand, CENTRA, DUO Subwoofer, rear speaker DIVA MONITOR and the WLM 2-Channel / Multi-channel passive preamp)
I am a great 2-channel fan, but the sound from the WLM multi-channel setup is really fantastic! We sell a lot of WLM multi-channel systems to Russia. In the attachment you can see the also the CENTRA speaker.
Bref, j'ai trĂ¨s envie d'Ă©couter les autres modĂ¨les de la gamme surtout le GRAN VIOLA couplĂ© Ă leur sub.
Nicolas de Melody me disait que le diva monitoir avec leur sub de 15", c'Ă©tait dĂ©jĂ qq chose d'impressionnant.
