Avalon Acoustics Idea

Many years ago, there was a loudspeaker called Avatar. It happened to be one of the very first projects Neil Patel undertook after acquiring Avalon Acoustics company. As it turned out, Avatar found plenty of friends in no time, and in all layers of the audio world – press, retailers and general public.

Many years later, in September of 2011 to be exact, we will be welcoming Neil Patel's latest design called IDEA – a compact floor standing 2-way 3-drive unit concept which, in so many ways, makes it a "21st century Avatar".

And, the attribute "21st century" means many years of experience, new knowledge, improved cabinet design, new drive unit and crossover component technologies, superior internal wire, etc., etc. In other words, at the price of £7,900 inc VAT for a pair of IDEA in standard wood finish (figured walnut, curly maple or quilted cherry)

We will be getting a lot of natural musicality, proper kind of transparency and musical dynamics, exemplary 3D rendition of a soundstage and the usual seamless, natural character and manner that Neil Patel inevitably embeds in all his creations.

Moderate amplifier power requirements, good overall sensitivity and elegantly managed impedance curve throughout the frequency range are just some of the additional virtues of the new IDEA .

Availability is expected from early October 2011.
