The TRIO speaker system from Avantgarde Acoustic is an icon for our brand, and even a flagship product for our whole industry! Achieving that status not least because it performs on a unique “true to live” level. Refined over many years, and always respected as the best we can achieve.
“What if we ignore the past, and put simply everything to question again?” describes Holger Fromme the design approach towards the TRIO LUXURY EDITION 26. And as improbable as it seemed initially, thorough research on mechanical structures, materials, and crossover parts did reveal room for improvements. Combined with a LUXURY EDITION approch at the same time, Mr Fromme finally concluded: “There is so much to gain for our most discerning customers in performance, appearance and in a limited-to-26-pairs exclusivity, we simply have to do it!”
And just going for 99% was not enough: Careful material selection led to the choice of precious German oak veneer and solid V2A stainless steel bars for the frame, treated and finally assembled by expert hands, making these materials truly shine. And even the “Midas touch” is possible by ordering gold plated V2A steel and LUXURY BASSHORNs with a golden hue of the curved flare. Exclusivity squared, so to speak.
This visual luxury is accompanied by technical excellence: The new crossover capacitors, for example, are hand made in Germany by a process that not only results in unique specifications for an ultimate performance, it also results in massive parts of up to 700 grams per capacitor! This elaboration has it's price, naturally, and more than 1000 EUR per capacitor is rather “crazy” when measured by customary industrial standards. But that's exactly what the TRIO LUXURY EDITION 26 is not: measurable by customary standards. Welcome to the club of 26!
