In the acoustically optimized STEREO listening room, the Aurum Alpha proved to be an audiophile masterpiece even without the practically unnecessary DIRAC optimization. The engineering team around Sascha Reckert can only be congratulated on this loudspeaker. It can compete even with the very best, which is also due to some important detail solutions. For example, only the bass and mid-range sections are fed by Class D amplification, while the tweeter is handled by a Class AB stage. After all, the frequency response should reach up to 50 kilohertz. Imagine the legendary Quadral AURUM Titan, but playing even more vividly and precisely thanks to its closed body and individually tuned amplifier electronics – without taking up the entire living room.
The image is opulent, perfectly illuminated and garnished with dynamics in every tiny detail. With music like „The Wall” the Alpha can, however, deliver equally brute a performance of outstanding dynamics, literally pulling the auditorium out of its seats. This also applies to a stereo living room home cinema – preferably using a beamer, as the picture should after all match the huge sound. A subwoofer is not necessarily required as the Alpha reaches below 30 Hertz and sports enough power. Believe us, you won‘t miss the Sub, but you might get to know your neighbors better. Last but not least, the AURUM app, which is already required for input selection, works extremely well. An outstanding loudspeaker!
