Vienna Acoustics The Kiss Stand Mounted Loudspeaker


“To the age its art, to art its freedom”

With these few words elegantly crafted and prominently presented above the entry of the famous Secession located within Vienna´s city center, the beginning of Jugendstil was begun in 1897. The Jugendstil was no dogmatic federation espousing artistic rights and wrongs; rather, this was a group of forward thinkers exploring new departures and destinations in creation. At their foundation was the urging of every persuasion including architecture, painting and music all combining together for the sake of progression. As the art movement´s most significant contributor and father, Gustav Klimt has been forever immortalized into the art fabric that is Vienna. Passion, skill, innovation and harmony are all words that evoke Klimt and his art. It is with this foundation that The Klimt Series was born and presented here, our newest release paying homage to his masterpiece, Der Kuss.

Visually stunning and entirely new, The Kiss loudspeaker system represents new state of art technology while also representing art itself. Only a speaker of such performance and beauty could justly pay respect to the most famous of the Gustav Klimt paintings, "Der Kuss".

Built around the same revolutionary coincident driver as the famed The Music, The Kiss represents a new level of performance from a stand mounted speaker. Mounted below the revolutionary coincident Flat-Spider-Cone driver combination is an all new 23cm our proprietary X3P Spider-Cone woofer. Even the visually stunning, unique new stand features technologies designed to not only look beautiful, but more importantly offer a stable and silent environment for The Kiss to operate in.

Revolution – Form Follows Function

Following the introduction of the flagship of The Klimt Series™, The Music, Vienna Acoustics present the smaller, yet no compromise model, The Kiss. As its larger sibling, The Kiss is based on the same revolutionary and patented Flat- Spider-Cone™ coincident driver system. This new design is able to produce the Platonic ideal of the entire critical seven octave human vocal range and beyond in a single, phase coherent time plain without any of the normal horn loading and compression present in most conventional designs. Not only does this technical innovation free the sound of virtually all mechanical interference, it also allows for great placement freedom that is normally not experienced nor expected with a reference speaker system. As with art, time and space are not frozen into a predetermined static point.

Instead, “To the age its art, to art its freedom.”
