Vincent Brient just informed me about his new Totaldac d150 horn speakers (38.000 EUR with VAT), that will be used to demo brand’s renowned DACs in Totaldac auditorium and at Hifi shows.
This speakers are the result of 20 years of experimentations to give a realistic and natural sound. Now these speakers are also offered to Totaldac customers.
The d150 loudspeakers are high resolution, high efficiency loudspeakers based on a paper cone full range driver whose low mid frequencies only are loaded with a large round horn made of 100mm thick wood.
The bass cabinet and the horn are both driven by a your amplifier, without the help of an internal amplifier.
A exceptional subwoofer is also offered as an option to reinforce frequencies below 50Hz.
Come and listen these speakers in HIFIDELUXE hifi show the 18th, 19th and 20th of May 2017 in Munich, Marriott hotel!
d150 speaker specification:
-40Hz-20KHz frequency bandwidth (25Hz-20KHz with the subwoofer option).
-150Hz crossover frequency making the speaker close to point source.
-860mm diameter wooden horn made of 100m thick wood.
-15inch bass driver.
-selected drivers allow gentle crossover slope to get the smallest phase shift and allow to use very high quality filter components.
-use of paper cones only and without whizzers for the most natural sound.
-easy 8ohm impedance, 7ohm minimum impedance, to be used with all kind of amplifiers, from small triodes to transistors.
-dimensions: 1.45m heigh, 0.86m diameter round horn, 0.72m max depth .
-weight: each part is less than 60kg for an easy handling.
-made in France.
A optional subwoofer can be provided to reinforce the sub bass from 25Hz to 50Hz. It uses one of the best 18 inch driver available, an AESPEAKER TD18H+ driver with Apollo upgrade. This 98dB/1W/1m sensitivity driver guarantees a good match with the 98dB/1W/1m d150 speakers.
The shape is tall with a small footprint on the floor to give a maximum volume but easy to fit in any room.
One single subwoofer in mono configuration or two subwoofers in mono or stereo configuration are possible.
No amplifier is embedded in the subwoofer, you can select the real high end amplifier of your choice and the subwoofer filter is already embedded in the d150 loudspeaker.

-18 inch driver from AESPEAKER -25Hz-50Hz pre-set filter embedded in the d150 speaker.
-use of paper cone for the most natural sound.
-easy 8ohm impedance.
-recommended amplifier: 200W and above.
-dimensions: 0.48m wide , 0.29m deep, 1.9m heigh.
