ZERO TA XD

Avantgarde Zero TA XD

Perfection comes from making complex things look simple and effortless. Does the semi-active ZERO TA reflect the many challenges that our engineers needed to master? No, and that's a good thing! Because the globally awarded cabinet design of the ZERO product line simply is: perfect. And so it was never put to question that we would take every effort necessary to create just one thought, when listening to the ZERO TA: perfect.

The ‘TA’ part is a custom-designed 500W amplifier, complete with user-configurable DSP, to control the subwoofer module allowing the subwoofer section to potentially go deeper, reaching potentially down to 18Hz.

Available in Black and White Satin

ZERO 1 XD


More integrated, compact and simple, and yet a veritable horn loudspeaker—to the very last decibel, ZERO XD is a dream shared by Avantgarde Acoustic. With larger acoustic transducers in a more compact horn loudspeaker, the ZERO XD becomes accessible by larger audience of audio enthusiasts. Its recessed spherical wave horn is a shining example of functional beauty. Digital processors, digital-to-analogue converters, power amplifiers and loudspeakers are all fully integrated.

The Zero 1 XD comes in either white or black.

  • UNO FINO EDITION

    UNO FINO EDITION

    Reduction not always means simply omitting something. Reduction also creates awareness for essential things. Or simply put: reduction is concentration. In this sense, the UNO Fino Edition is designed as a concentrate, using the essence of the UNO line of speakers to accomplish a new entry point for the 'classic' horn speakers series of Avantgarde Acoustic.

    In essence: a gently minimized size, a deliberately simplified engineering, but still a maximized Avantgarde experience.

    At Avantgarde Acoustic™, this precise control is very much in the foreground of the listening experience. It is particularly appreciated during day to day listening where the system develops its full bass extension. This translates to an immediate sensation of power and richness even when idling at low volumes – a landmark characteristic of every Avantgarde.

    The major feature of the XD series becomes manifest in the completely updated control panel, featuring a display and elaborate 3-button operation that not only facilitates easy and precise adjustments of basic functions, but also accesses the advanced functions. Among them a 10 band parametric equalizer, which adjusts the bass range precisely to room acoustic requirements.

    The horns are available in 10 colour options, while the speaker body comes in the Zebrano, Tiger Rosewood and Ebony Wengé veneers.

    The Trio is a 3–way spherical horn satellite which below 100 Hz, is complemented with active subwoofers. The transmission of the lower frequencies is handled by the 38 inch low–midrange horn. It is driven by the 8 inch L3O-XD driver with 16 ohm OMEGA voice coil and proprietary Soft Mesh Compound membrane dome. The heart of the Trio, the midrange with coverage down to 600 Hz, is covered by the 27 ohm 2 inch M3O driver behind the 23 inch midrange horn. The 16 ohm 1 inch tweeter H3O with its 7 inch horn blends in at 4 kHz. Welcome to audiophile nirvana!

    The speakers are available in 11 colours, while the speaker body comes in the Zebrano, Tiger Rosewood and Ebony Wengé veneers.

  • BASSHORN
  • BASSHORN


    The Basshorn is a fully active bass system with a response of 18 to 250 Hz. Each Basshorn is driven by two powerful 12 inch long excursion drivers with 600 watts RMS. With their 185 inches squared of membrane area, the drivers are capable of displacing 31 cubic inches of air which is thrust into throat of the horn.

    The sound waves are then guided through the 55 inch long expo–spherical horn and propagated into the room. The horn mouth area of each Basshorn module is 9 ft squared. In a 6 x Basshorn configuration this translates to 54 ft squared! Each Basshorn is powered by our newly developed XD-1000 amplifier. This amplifier not only generates an incredible 1000 Watts per subwoofer module, but also features a DSP controlled signal input stage, which opens excellent user-controllable features to adjust and fine tune the Basshorn XD to the acoustic environment.

    Maybe the Trio with Basshorns is the most beautiful speaker from Avantgarde Acoustic™. But in respect to its holistic technology it is for sure the most perfect speaker system. Designed for people with an obsessive passion for music – from people who esteem the exceptional.
