DoAcoustics launches in the UK today with its stunning range of small footprint yet big-sounding loudspeakers! I had an early pair of Armonia Mundi bamboo floor-standing speakers in August and they were awarded Highly Recommended, the review is here. I said in August:
the resolution and timing is the standout feature
They really are terrific speakers, and boy do they look good or what? The full range is now available and there are active and passive options, as well as cinema options. The whole range is characterised by being slim and understated in appearance.
The three stand-mount designs – Microcosmo, Macrocosmo and Macrocosmo Reference – feature a single 3″ full-range Polypropylene-Paper-coned driver, delivering a true point-source performance that makes them equally at home in a lounge room as they are in the studio. Slightly larger in height, the 2-way Macrocosmo Reference Impact features an additional 3″ bass driver, whilst the larger again Jupiter houses two full-range drivers and two bass drivers in a reverse D’Appolito design. Adding an additional out-of-phase tweeter to the rear of the cabinet, the Jupiter Impact offers a terrific sound stage and can be mounted either vertically or horizontally.
Moving onto the floor-standers, all of which stand 86.5cm tall, three models are available: Armonia Mundi, Armonia Mundi Impact and Armonia Mundi Impact Active. The Armonia Mundi houses 1 x full-range and 1 x bass driver, whilst the Armonia Mundi Impact ads an additional full-range and bass driver per side, along with a tweeter mounted on the rear panel.
All MicroDesign models are available in a range of standard colours that include white matt, black matt, natural bamboo, purple matt and green matt.
