Imperia horn system
Imperia Oswalds Mill Audio
The firm Oswalds Mill Audio, based in Pennsylvania, USA, has just launched to the national and international markets a four-way horn system—retro style—reminiscent of the old phonograph that Thomas Alva Edison created more than a century ago.
These speakers, which are controlled by their own amplifier and produce a clean, high-quality sound, are made with a variety of hardwoods from Pennsylvania’s forests—ash, cherry, and walnut—finished with lacquer and hand rubbed with wax to preserve the natural beauty of the wood.
Imperia has modern internal wiring, along with a new circular rear compression chamber for the lower bass horn driver.
Mermaid by AudioWood
AudioWood is an American company that manufactures wooden turntables, speakers, and other stereo equipment, combining high-performance modern aesthetics with natural shapes. Their Mermaid model is made of poplar wood, wired with cast copper wire, gold-plated binding posts and a completely sealed design to prevent overdriving of the sound drivers.
Since these speakers feature a unique design, its sound is immediate and extremely precise, which is evident in the way we recognize the origin of the singer’s voice and the instruments.
The system performs great with all sorts of music. The Mermaid speakers seem to disappear as the source of the sound, creating a realistic and precise stereo feeling. ■
