The Carnegie or the Royal Albert Hall. Abbey Road or Sun Studios. Fillmore East or the 100 Club.
We all have our favourite venue or studio. Now you can experience every spine tingling note of music as though you were actually there, through the Wolf von Langa SON.
The SON produces a vast vivid sonic picture from a compact floor-standing enclosure. Extremely neutral and immediate, it creates one of the most naturally musical sounds you’ll ever hear.
Designed by Wolf von Langa, the SON uses a fine-tuned combination of a unique hand-built 12" field coil driver and an ultra-fast high frequency ribbon.
Little surprise then that ‘The absolute sound’ guru Jonathan Valin was so impressed at High-end Munich he stated, “It was by far the Best of Show combo for the money, and in spite of its diminutive size they didn’t sound a bit miniaturised!”
But don’t take his word for it, come and listen for yourself. We guarantee, you’ll hear music like never before.
And, as you can never get too much of a good thing, Wolf von Langa also has a range of larger open-baffle based, field-coil speakers - the Audio Frame London and Chicago.
For those who love a little tech-speak. A field coil speaker uses two coils; the voice coil and a field coil. Instead of a magnet, DC is applied to the field coil creating a magnetic field. This takes the place of the permanent magnet in creating the fixed magnetic field. Von Langa Field coil-based drivers drastically reduce distortion levels, and are able to control the driver much more accurately. Drivers in speakers vibrate up to thousands of times per second. Some claim that permanent magnets actually lose strength slightly with each vibration, causing a loss of low-level information and a blurring of the signal. Von Langa Field coil drivers, with their own power supplies do not lose strength and so have much less distortion than their permanent magnet counterparts.The result is simply magic. Well you did ask.
