Goldmund Apologue Anniversary – Speakers

Price Eur 500.000,00

 

Goldmund Apologue Anniversary  . La Goldmund è un marchio Svizzero famoso nel mondo soprattutto per i giradischi di riferimento che produce.

Gli Apologue Anniversary sono diffusori nati nel 1987 e giunti fino a noi con degli aggiornamenti, anche se sono rimasti costanti nell’idea tecnica e nel progetto di base.

Sono giustamente considerate un riferimento tra  le casse acustiche di altissimo livello, e a pieno titolo fanno parte dei “Dream Systems”, un gruppo di impianti in grado di far sognare noi appassionati.

La casa dichiara che si tratta di un 3 vie con due woofer da 31 cm, 2 midrange da 18 cm e 2 tweeter Scanspeak a cupola.

Questi ultimi componenti, anche se di diversa costruzione, fanno comunque parte della stessa via ed hanno emissioni diverse in modo da fornire una completa riproduzione dell’estremo superiore.

Per questa configurazione di diffusori è richiesto il pilotaggio tramite 6 amplificatori mono da 600W per totale di 3600W con un’efficienza di circa 100dB.

Il bellissimo design permette un allineamento meccanico degli altoparlanti, mentre quello elettrico è consentito dal complesso crossover interno.

Questi diffusori, a dispetto delle mode, son destinati a rimanere ancora per lungo tempo dei riferimenti, sia per il progetto, ancora oggi avanzato, sia per i materiali usati, in particolare relativamente agli altoparlanti.

Goldmund

 Celebrated in 1987 for its unique design by the New York Museum of Modern art where it was displayed, and for its unique audio quality by worldwide audio enthusiasts who bought one of the 50 pairs then produced, the Goldmund Apologue stands forever as a major milestone in Goldmund history.

25 years later, Goldmund is paying a tribute to this extraordinary product by issuing a Limited Series of 25 Goldmund Apologue Anniversary with an exactly identical design but with all the technological progress made by the company during those 25 years.

The 1987 edition of the Apologue was a 3-way passive speaker. The Apologue Anniversary comes with twice as much drivers and built-in amplification totalizing 3600W for a pair.

To this extreme power, Goldmund added the latest signal corrections developed by Goldmund Fundamental Research Department. If it is scientifically correct to say that the Apologue Anniversary is 100% corrected both in amplitude and phase, providing for the first time a “perfect response” from a pair of Speakers, we prefer to look at the technical achievements in this model from another angle. We do not develop technologies or manufacture equipment just for the sake of it.

Our ultimate objective and reward is to create emotions.

We believe that the more perfect the sound reproduction, the more intense these emotions will be. So we focus on the results the technologies we develop can provide in this sense. These are listed below:

  • Incredible spaciousness,
  • Each instrument is positioned at its correct place,
  • Complete stability of the image,
  • Perfectly well defined trebles,
  • Extremely neat bass,
  • Ultra high definition and precision in the voices,
  • Higher playback levels without distortion,
  • No fatigue to the listener, even at extremely high levels.

To the perfection of the sound, we also wanted to add the highest level in the design, ease of use and installation.

The signal feeding the Apologue Anniversary is sent exclusively wirelessly, so the 2 speakers of a Stereo System can be presented without any cable, except for an AC plug that can be installed below the speaker. So the superb design, with all its details can be admired by walking around the speakers, a possibility usually dangerous due to connecting cables. Goldmund thinks there is no reason to admire such an exceptional sculptural object only from the front and a pair of Apologue Anniversary can be observed as if they were in a Museum, even if playing Music at the same time.

The Apologue Anniversary will be available as a standard version with the Goldmund aluminum finish but is also customizable in any desired finish thanks to the services provided by the Goldmund Shop.

Our good friend Norman Williams just sent in an exclusive follow up text for the Goldmund Apologue speaker system demo session. Read on the interesting insight …
Jan 30, 2014 Goldmund Apologue speaker system demo

I was invited by a contact in Sales to the Corporate HQ of Goldmund to listen to their top 2-channel audio system setup in the listening salon in Geneva, Plan-les-Ouates (5 mins drive from home).

Goldmund is neighbour to some equally prestigious companies that many of us have heard of like Piaget, Rolex, Patek Phillipe and Vacheron Constantin. The impressive looking office/plant is located in a chic office complex shared with some white-collar businesses involved in Consulting and Biotech. There are about 20-25 people working there.
After meeting the CFO, wireless engineer, chief engineer for the JOB line, I was hosted by the Sales Manager and a senior R&D Project manager who jointly conducted the demo session….. See more

LA NOSTRA ANALISI
GOLDMUND APOLOGUE
SISTEMA DI DIFFUSIONE DEL SUONO ATIPICO
Di Francesco Piccione

Con questo articolo inauguro una serie dedicata all’analisi dei diffusori di cui ho studiato la realizzazione per miei studi personali, volti alla progettazione di diffusori acustici.

PREMESSA

Progettare e realizzare diffusori sembrerebbe semplice. Non lo è se si vogliono realizzare prodotti particolari, mai visti in precedenza, come gli Apologue, oggetti di questa mia piccola analisi.
In effetti, questi diffusori meriterebbero un’analisi più approfondita. Ma a distanza di qualche decennio le notizie che ho conservato sono frammentate ed altre ormai di difficile reperibilità, tale da non permettermi un maggiore approfondimento.

LA GOLDMUND

La Svizzera Goldmund ha debuttato nel mondo audio hi-end nei primissimi anni ’80 con la realizzazione di giradischi analogici di notevolissimo livello qualitativo.

Nella progettazione di questi giradischi, pare che vi sia stato anche lo “zampino” di Pierre Lurné. Si vocifera, infatti, che il suo J1, altro non sia che il Goldmund Studio. Non avendoli mai visti contemporaneamente, non posso confermare questa voce… Certo che il carattere distintivo consiste nella trazione…… See more

Goldmund Apologue Anniversary : la refondation d’une enceinte High End d’anthologie

Écrit par Pierre-Yves Maton on 28 juin 2013. Posted in Actualités – News

Cette version “Anniversary” de l’enceinte Goldmund Apologue, qui ne sera créé qu’à 25 exemplaires, sonne comme un hommage aux célèbres modèles Apologue de 1986. Néanmoins, la version d’aujourd’hui est bien différente, car bénéficiant de toutes les dernières innovations de ce fabricant Suisse, et comme son aînée, elle va se hisser à la tête des créations de prestige à l’échelle mondiale. Nous avons pu approcher et écouter de près de ces nouvelles références où enceintes Absolute.

En effet, depuis leur date de sortie, il y a 25 ans, l’Apologue, et malgré un air de ressemblance évident avec le modèle originel, a bénéficié d’un nombre de transformations radicales, le numérique en devenant une composante à part entière. La marque Suisse Goldmund n’a eu de cesse, de poursuivre ses recherches sur un grand nombre de technologies notamment numériques et psychoacoustiques, toujours en quête de la perfection sonore.

Tous les principes propriétaires comme les fameux “Mechanical Grounding”, “AC-Curator”, “Magnetic-Damper”… principes qui ont fait aussi l’histoire de cette marque, se voient aujourd’hui rejoint par bien d’autres, encore plus révolutionnaires, transformant radicalement les modèles Apologue Anniversary en une nouvelle vitrine de l’expertise technique de cette marque de prestige. Nous pensons plus particulièrement aux principes de correction Proteus et Leonardo, une réussite incontestable de la recherche fondamentale en matière de numérique et d’acoustique. Ces deux technologies hautement scientifiques, nous les devons au travail de toute une équipe d’ingénieurs très passionnés et plus particulièrement à une jeune femme le Dr Véronique Adam, une ingénieure acousticienne de l’École Polytechnique de Lausanne…….See More
