Uno Fino

The statement was the following:
– Some customers were looking for a smaller and cheaper model of the Uno to install in a small/medium listening room.
– The Zero TA was then recommended but some customers wanted to focus on a more « traditional » look
and chose their horn color and enclosure finishing.

So Avantgarde did it!

This model is strongly inspired from the Uno XD in a more compact enclosure and at a more affordable price.
1: We reduced the height of the enclosure using only 1 x 10’’ Bass driver.
2: We included a Bass reflex technology (oriented at the bottom of the speaker, to avoid any parasite reflection
of the back wall – especially in small room)
3: We kept the same 5’’ mid-range driver and exactly the same 500 mm mid horn
4: We equipped the speaker with a new 25 mm tweeter for a very efficient and precise performance.
5 : We kept the power amplifier technology and the same 10 Band parametric DSP + but used
only 1 power module of 500 W (like in the Zero TA)
6 : We kept the XD line genuine Core technology of the XD line : Omega Driver, CDC technology –
No Crossover on the mid-range, patented CPC, etc…

Optional wooden veneer and finishing are possible.

Reservation are opened from now. The delivery of the first batch will be happening mid of October.

NEW FROM Questyle >> the CMA400i  All-In-One Headphone Amp DAC (previewed at CES 2017)

Questyle CMA 400i Affordable Headphone Amp with DAC

Questyle’s answer to  affordability in their “All-In-One” headphone amp / DAC  with current-mode and true DSD playback technologies
— offers excellent value for Questyle’s traditionally high standards of build quality —

– current-mode topology is very fast and allows feedback signals within the circuits to control with very little delay, which significantly reduces transient intermodulation distortion.
– AKM4490 DAC (same DAC as the CMA600i)
– True DSD 64, 128, and 256, and PCM to 352.8/384
– USB, optical, and two coax digital inputs
– Headphone outputs are 4-pin XLR, standard 1/4″ unbalanced, and 2.5mm balanced connections
– Balanced and unbalanced volume-controlled analog outputs, and a coax S/PDIF digital output
– Fully-balanced design with discrete channels for Left+, Left-, Right+, and Right- signals
– Four gain switches to set channels in low or standard gains located on bottom
– low gain setting specifically designed for compatibility with ultra high-sensitivity earphones and CIEMS

We expect a price in the $700-$800 (US) range and hope to have them late spring.
