With its open, detailed and involving sound, the Twist is a classic 2 way system in the best sense. The relatively large cabinet gives a linear and well extended bass response. The 4th order Linkwitz-Riley cross-over improves the room response. And the twisted side panels and rock solid baffle make for an inert driver base. This carefully orchestrated arrangement unleashes the full potential of the high quality Danish designed drivers. The two versions "Twist Classic" with fixed black grille and the "Twist Select" with customizable baffle without grille are handbuild in Denmark. The retail price starts at € 3300,- per pair incl. VAT.
The sound quality of a loudspeaker is to a large extent determined by how it radiates sound into the 3 dimensions of a room. Special focus has therefore been on the so called room response of the Twist. We did actually rebuild our listening room to make it sound more neutral for this purpose. Improving the room response led to a low and steep 24dB/Oct Linkwitz-Riley cross-over. The result is a very clear and open upper midrange, without ever becoming aggressive.
Breaking with traditions, the Twist Select can easily be customized in production. In today's monochromatic world, the Twist baffle can be dressed with any upholstry fabric of your choosing. This fabric is very different from normal loudspeaker cloth in that it offers a much richer choice of thread colors and texture because it does not have to be sound transparent. Our pre-selection is from the Danish Kvadrat Metric series. The carefully machined loudspeakers and paint matched screws add beautiful detail.
Just like you would expect, the Twist uses top of the range drivers that were designed according to the best Danish traditions. The special fibre blend woofer membrane gives exactly the right combination of stiffness and damping. The refined anodised aluminium dome tweeter achieves high levels of detail thanks to it's pistonic motion for the entire audible frequency range. The large non reflective chamber enables a low cross-over frequency for seamless integration of the two drivers.
