The GamuT Zodiac Loudspeaker
GamuT’s Zodiac is a cost-no-object, limited-edition, reference-level loudspeaker. Only 12 pairs are produced each year, and chief designer Benno Baun Meldgaard will personally oversee the installation and fine-tune the system in each customer’s home.
The Zodiac features all-new drive units including a tweeter that extends to 60kHz. Bass response extends to 16Hz, making the Zodiac an extremely wideband transducer. Meldgaard hand-matches the drivers for each pair. The highly complex enclosure is made from 27 layers of wood, sourced from a sustainable forest in Latvia. Other design features include a boat-tailed taper in the rear to avoid standing waves inside the cabinet and exotic, cost-no-object crossover components connected with point-to-point wiring. This overview just hints at the Zodiac’s technical innovations and exterior beauty.
Robert Harley’s Books
Robert Harley will sign copies of his classic book The Complete Guide to High-End Audio, now in a new fifth edition. First published in 1994, The Complete Guide has become the essential reference on high-quality music reproduction. Robert’s books on high-end audio have sold more than 300,000 copies in five languages. Robert will also present the first and second volumes of The Absolute Sound’s Illustrated History of High-End Audio, a series of large-format, lavishly illustrated books celebrating high-end audio’s legendary companies and their iconic products. And if you own a copy of the Illustrated History bring it to the event for Robert to personally inscribe to you. Robert will be available all afternoon to take questions and talk with you.
