New BɅYZ Counterpoint flagship loudspeaker

"BɅYZ Audio announces the debut of the ($97,100) Counterpoint loudspeaker, the flagship of the prestigious BɅYZ Audio lineup.  The Counterpoint loudspeaker achieves state-of-the-art status in consumer electronics by utilizing the internationally patented Bay Radial Speaker (BRS).  The Counterpoint is a radical design change and marks a quantum leap in loudspeaker technology.  The BRS was developed by inventor Zoltán Bay as an idealized way to provide a superior, phase coherent pulse that radiates a sound field in a full 360 degrees with vanishing low distortions and inaudible ringing. The development of the BRS took over a decade of painstakingly development to meet Zoltan’s exacting performance capabilities."

Per Zoltán: “When compared to other state of the art speakers, the Counterpoint has a faster impulse response, much cleaner decay, and very low ringing. My intention was to design a speaker with the lowest distortion signature with idealized pulse with perfect frequency response in all directions.”   Listening to the Counterpoint reveals a superior sense of holographic imaging reproducing a more exacting spatial location of the musical instruments. The Counterpoint’s ability to track transients with lightning speed also provides very clean overtones and settling times.

Renown Danish electroacoustics engineer Frank Nielsen was tasked with building custom-designed woofers to match the amazing speed of the BRS.  His solution uses two ultra-quick 240mm (9½”) woofers that provide powerful bass, fast transients, and detailed resolution.

The Counterpoint’s enclosure, sculpted by race aircraft designer András Voloscsuk, is entirely of carbon fiber and lined with a proprietary damping compound to completely eliminate unwanted vibrations.

The Counterpoint’s debut was just a few weeks back at AXPONA 2019, in Chicago, wins the Best Of AXPONA 2019 award, from Enjoy The Music magazine. 

The next possibility to hear it, will be at HifiDeluxe in Munich (9-11 May 2019).  The Counterpoint’s suggested retail price is $97,100.
