Credo Audio The Reference ONE

At the „High-End 2017“ in Munich we will introduce our latest loudspeaker model, The Reference ONE.

This new model was fully developed in-house by our designer Michael Kraske - he overtook several details and technology from our existing loudspeaker designs, like „The Cinema Reference“, developed a brand new cabinet construction and crossover, using new components and materials. He wanted to create a loudspeaker that is dedicated to accuracy, detail and that delivers musicality and resolution.

The result is a three-way floor standing loudspeaker, separated in two closed cabinets. Below is a brief overview about the design and technical specifications:
