New "Sonora", "Sinfonia" and "El Diablo"

Peak Consult Denmark: New Owners, New Speakers

The Danish loudspeaker manufacturer Peak, founded in 1996, now has two new owners: Lennart Asbjørn, also acting as CEO, and Dynaudio co-founder Wilfried Ehrenholz.

Peak Consult's new CEO, Lennart Asbjørn, is responsible for the administration as well as the production of the loudspeakers in Denmark. The fields of product development, strategy, marketing and distribution will be managed by the new co-owner Wilfried Ehrenholz. As co-founder and long-time owner of Dynaudio, Ehrenholz is expected to bring the necessary experience to further develop Peak's loudspeakers as well as the brand itself. Peak builds all of its speakers in its own workshop, with the drivers also being manufactured in Denmark to Peak's strict specifications.

To accompany the changes, Peak is also introducing three new speakers: "Sonora", "Sinfonia" and the new iteration of "El Diablo". The Sonora acts as the entry into the world of Peak, being a relatively compact 2-way floorstanding speaker with an additional passive radiator. The crossover in the Sonora is supposed to be completely acoustically separated from the rest of the speaker to prevent microphonic effects.

Next comes the Sinfonia 3-way floorstanding speaker, which features a custom 8-inch woofer. The Sinfonia's cabinet is made of a three-layer, 30mm sandwich construction, covered by a solid 14mm layer of American walnut. The new El Diablo speakers are the latest evolution of Peak's most successful speakers, and present a 3-way design with two woofers. In this newest version, the speaker's cabinet, drivers and crossovers are all said to have been improved, with the midrange driver standing out in particular: along with the separate crossovers, its interplay with the tweeter and the woofer is claimed to be even further improved.

In Gemany, the Sonora are said to come at a price of €25,000, the Sinfonia for €45,000 and the new El Diablo for €55,000.
