Vienna Acoustics Poetry Center Channel 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.

Few times in history has the still arts married themselves to the performing arts. In Vienna, Gustav Klimt created his masterpiece paying homage to Beethoven, the Beethoven Frieze. Within this work of art is one of the beautiful movements, "Poesie" (Poetry). This is where the inspiration for entirely new and beautiful no compromise center channel begins.

When high performance home theaters were first conceived, the center channel was the weakest link. With this movement in the Klimt Series, all compromise ends. Built around the same revolutionary Coincident Music Center are mounted (2) proprietary 23cm X3P woofers. For the first time all the true dynamics and vocal clarity of new high-resolution theater playback has an appropriate loudspeaker.

In this new era where the promise of truly high resolution audio playback has finally become a reality in home theater, we have created Poetry. Named for one of the most famous “movements” within Gustav Klimt´s, Beethoven Freeze, Poetry aims to set a new standard. Capable of being used in a Left – Center – Right configuration or additionally as surround channels, Poetry possesses an ability to produce the proscribed full range frequency range without dynamic limitation. As a center channel only, it was designed to offer proper matching with our flagship model from The Klimt Series, The Music, without compromise. Created around the same patented Flat-Spider-Cone™ coincident driver system that offers vocal clarity and dispersion before not possible, there is the same hand crafted silk dome tweeter at its center. On either side of the sealed enclosure housing this driver system are our patented Spider-Cone™ woofers each individually vented via large rear mounted ports.
