Product_12_HRS130.jpg

The HRS-130 loudspeaker

The HRS-130 loudspeaker is a higher performance version of our popular HRS-120. Not only have significant improvements been made to the sound quality, but the cabinet has been restyled to give a smoother look, enabling the HRS-130 to blend more easily in to the room. The improved look is enhanced by a new, luxurious high-polish polyester finish, which is available in black or white.

Product_11_BorderlandMkIV.png

The Borderland MK IV loudspeaker

Originally introduced in 1992, the Borderland was our first flagship model and has since provided the inspiration for the current Unlimited and HRS-130 models. Now in its MK IV form, the Borderland remains our most popular loudspeaker. It combines our unique carbon fibre DDD driver with a downward firing 12–inch woofer and a sophisticated new crossover network. Housed in an extremely rigid octagonal cabinet, it sets impressively high standards for stereo imaging, transparency and musicality.

Product_09_UnicornMkII.png

The Unicorn MK II loudspeaker

The Unicorn, as its name suggests is a very rare animal: a single driver loudspeaker that covers the full audio range. It uses a single carbon fibre DDD driver to cover the full range from 24kHz all the way down to 40Hz. The bass has a speed and smoothness of integration with the rest of the audio range that we have yet to hear bettered. The overall clarity, coherence and finesse the Unicorn provides make it a dream for lovers of vocal, jazz and classical music. It is also capable of surprising rock music fans.

Product_04_PQS402.png

PQS-402 loudspeaker

The design brief for the PQS-402 was to produce a listening experience comparable to that of our Loreley model from a loudspeaker with a smaller cabinet, thereby making our reference level products available to a wider audience. As well as the usual impressive German Physiks attributes, the PQS-402 also boasts a very wide dynamic range that comes close to its larger stable mate

Product_02_EmperorMkII.png

Emperor MK II loudspeaker

The Emperor MK II is a smaller version of our flagship Gaudi model and like the Gaudi it designed to be tri-amped. This means that it uses three power amplifiers to drive each loudspeaker. This may sound extravagant, but it provides a higher level of performance than is possible with a passive crossover. To facilitate this it is supplied with our new Emperor Extreme digital crossover, which, for ease of use, is preconfigured at the factory.
