"The Forza is a marvellous loudspeaker."
Michael Fremer, Stereophile
The Estelon Forza is a much-awaited addition to the Estelon flagship series. Standing at nearly 1.7 metres in height, the elegant design of the Forza features the very best of what Estelon has to offer - the perfect synergy between aesthetics and engineering. Using only the materials and components best suited for this model and manufacturing it with the greatest detail, the Forza brings music to life. With a sleek design composed of a single cabinet, the Forza is just a bit smaller in size than the Estelon Extreme.
Forza, as the name already suggests, is full of unimaginable refined power. As the electric current passes through the driver elements, the Forza becomes alive. Every nuance dances through the air creating a realistic soundstage and fills the listener with rich emotions. The Forza is bound to impress everybody.
Each speaker has two woofers, one mid-woofer, one midrange, and one tweeter. For the speaker to reproduce the full spectrum of sound with the absolute highest quality, a combination of four different driver types has been carefully chosen.
The two 250 mm (11-inch) aluminium sandwich woofers have been designed together with Accuton engineers, especially for the Estelon flagship loudspeakers. These drivers have an extremely stiff and lightweight membrane and very long linear excursion. In combination with the Cell concept motor system, where the voice coil is almost the same diameter as the whole membrane, these drivers in the Forza cabinet can reproduce a truly deep, accurate, and effortless bass. The Forza’s bass has been said to sound like “live bass”. This is a result of meticulous engineering.
The 190 mm (8-inch) aluminium sandwich mid-woofer has also been co-developed together with the Accuton engineering team, with a unique motor system employing neodymium magnets to have higher sensitivity and suitable parameters for the Forza.
The 168 mm (7-inch) ceramic membrane midrange driver from Accuton employs a lightweight, extremely rigid, alpha-corundum membrane. In combination with the powerful, highly optimized Cell concept motor system, with a neodymium magnet ring, the result is a highly efficient and transparent sounding midrange driver.
The 25 mm (1-inch) chemical vapor-deposited diamond membrane tweeter from Accuton can reproduce sounds at the highest frequencies, up to 60 kHz, with no distortions in the human hearing range.
Symmetrical driver positioning – both woofers have exactly the same acoustic load outside the loudspeaker as inside. Due to such configuration, both woofers move identically and without competing with each other. We call this Symmetric Driver Loading (SDL) technology.
The three upper drivers are positioned on the curved front panel in a way that from the listening position these are approximately at the same distance from the listener. This, combined with the meticulously fine-tuned cross-over filters, means that the sound from each driver reaches the listening position at the same time, resulting in a coherent, precise sound signal with uncompressed dynamics, perfect tonal balance, very precise imaging, and lifelike sound-staging.
It is with great excitement that we, after a long process of research and development, can present our new addition to our new TD-series, and what a speaker. The TD3.8 is an absolute beast and a dream-project. The project was born out of demand for speakers with bigger drivers, and also because of the passion for taking Raidho to the next level.
Grimm Audio MU1 Coming Soon!
The MU1 is the ultimate digital music source. Combined with the LS1, it forms a peerlessly elegant High-End audio system.
We wanted to develop the most accurate audio source we could imagine. In our experience, the human hearing system shows an incredible sensitivity to anomalies. Even unimaginably small aberrations appear to be audible. In principle, digital audio does offer perfect reproduction. Its sonic quality, however, is limited by the implementation accuracy of the physical and mathematical laws that affect the conversion from one format to another. Grimm Audio strives to bring you confidence that all technical details are taken care of to the greatest extent so that the reproduction system steps out of the way of the music.
“The MU1 is the ultimate digital music source: attractive, reliable and precise”
With the MU1, our goal was to set a new benchmark in music player design. The Linux-based computer system brings solid data integrity. Our in-house-designed FPGA interface board, which forms the heart of the MU1, offers breakthrough performance levels in format conversion and receives automatic updates whenever we have pushed the boundaries again. Needless to say, the MU1 features our trademark ultra-low jitter clock. This is a music player worthy of the name Grimm Audio.
Once excellent sound quality is ensured, the quality of a music player is then defined by the user experience. For this, we partnered with Roon Labs, who in our opinion are in the lead when it comes to a rich and engaging music experience that appeals to your whole family. The MU1 runs the Roon Core server, so no extra installs are necessary. Just pick up your tablet and experience the music. For customers who prefer to only run a simple playback system without Roon’s extras, we will offer a solid alternative.
The MU1 combines seamlessly with the LS1 playback system. Of course, the virtues of the MU1 can also be realized with DACs from other manufacturers. Because we love to create a stunning look for our equipment, the boundlessly versatile system is housed in a cabinet of minimalistic elegance, so the MU1 will easily become the gem of your living room.

Femto 33 clock.
Our clock module architecture is built with the customer in mind—we’ve made the clock module user-upgradable, ensuring future updates are simple and streamlined. Each Reference DAC comes with the our most advanced Femto 33 Clock featuring a custom oven controlled dual crystal design.
The new A5 is a flagship A-Series model (3 way / 5 driver design) which incorporates the company’s first 5-inch pure midrange driver as well as enhanced midrange and bass driver cone technology. These new advanced cones achieve unprecedented stiffness-to-weight ratio, a key parameter that Magico has pursued over the past 15 years. The massive, sealed enclosure of the A5 is formed entirely of 6061-T6 aircraft grade aluminum, the same material and construction methods as in Magico’s acclaimed Q-Series. Complex internal bracing helps stiffen the entire enclosure and minimize unwanted resonances and colorations, allowing all drivers to perform with stunning resolution and dynamics. The A5 is finished in an elegant brushed black anodized aluminum with grilles available separately as an option. “The A Series has been a great success in reaching a wider audience,” says Magico’s founder, Alon Wolf. “The A5 builds on that success with a new 5-inch midrange of extraordinary musicality. And the A5 ‘plays larger,’ with powerfully extended dynamic range.”

PEARL GRAPHENE by JOSEPH AUDIO
Now on display!
The very breath of music flows as dynamic nuances and minute details are reproduced with the gentle touch of a master's brush. Thunderous low frequencies are delivered with authoritative and articulate control as you are transported into an environment of music that is effortless, natural, alive and whole.
Masterful in its pure revelation of music and magical in its ability to utterly disappear, the Pearl Graphene is a loudspeaker for music lovers that want to get off the upgrade merry-go-round and fall in love for life.
Housed in separate enclosures and linked by solid brass points, the Pearl's tweeter and midrange are isolated from the dual woofers below.
The acoustic design of the cabinet is very complex and rigid, with multiple bracing to keep the box as silent as possible. This structural rigidity translates into clarity and focus of the highest order. The seamless Asymmetrical Infinite Slope crossover gives the Perspective2 a unique sense of coherence.
The sound retains the same character from top to bottom, greatly contributing to the overall realism of the listening experience. The special Graphene Magnesium cone woofers are tuned to tautly extend the low frequency response for bass that can be heard and distinctly felt.
