Ellipse DX55 NW
I am very well aware that many fellow music lovers do not have the space for a large loudspeaker.
Having created the majestic Eufrodite, my next objective was to translate those fundamental design principles into a smaller cabinet which would demonstrate the same attributes and qualities. So, that restless passion from which has evolved loudspeakers that win accolades at the most distinguished audio celebrations, has been dedicated to producing a model for those of us whose musical appreciation is compromised only by space constraints.
The Horning Aristoteles full range loudspeaker.
The Horning Aristoteles has been scaled to present convincing music for discriminating enthusiasts with dimensions specifically intended for smaller listening rooms. Listen to the Horning Aristoteles and it’s like magic, you’ll suspend disbelief, you’ll visualise a vast musical soundscape and, because there can be benefits in smaller spaces, solists and vocalists will appear with near tangible, intimate presence.
I am particularly proud that Horning loudspeakers have achieved their status amongst knowledgeable enthusiasts without hype, advertising or marketing, they convince on hearing. The Horning Aristoteles aims to present as persuasive a soundstage as our flagship loudspeakers. Its performance is such that its demands are just as great; only the finest sources and amplifiers will do it justice, size is its only compromise.
Horning dealers can demonstrate the supreme musical abilities of the Aristoteles loudspeaker.
Downscaled from his flagship Eufrodite, Tommy Hørning introduces the Aristoteles Ultimate, a 103cm tall, 23cm wide tower of 50cm depth that packs 2 x 8″ woofers , once again using Hørning’s wave-guided tweeter and denuded Lowther midrange. System sensitivity is 96dB.
