The new Master Reference Loudspeaker System


Again another loudspeaker system..... yes, why not ? I gained a lot of experience with the ETAMSAS, which is a very nice loudspeaker design, but not a Master Reference.... I always wanted to build a real FULL system with real superb features. Audiofriend Gydo, helped me making a simple decision. He showed me his speaker designs based on Thiel Ceramic Units. After listening to these great units I decided to built a system with them, and it should be semi active with 2 subwoofers. Then, again, Gydo caused the final step. He came with the idea of the Gydinel enclosure..... An idea for a master reference system was born !!!! In the meantime all units have arrived at my humble audio workshop (some people call this their livingroom....), so I could start with the first tests with the Thiel units and make first steps on the difficult path of filter design and Amplifier configuration. I realize, this is not something everyone will (re-)build that easily, but I hope that the reader will be inspired to follow his own ideas based on our work !!!
