Vaessen Orb studio monitor

The Orb studio monitor has been designed to provide superb, uncolored, unlimited full frequency range response in a single enclosure.

Due to our very successful research on the Galaxy & Aquarius loudspeakersystems, the Orb has a sonic character quite similar to its larger predecessors.

Using structural Fibreglass enclosure, speaker drivers, and time alignment technology The Orb is truly the thoroughbred of its class, and is well suited to carrying on the heritage of Vaessen Audiodesign Loudspeakers.

One of Koen Vaessen’s most important criteria in speaker design is that a speaker meets the accuracy and dynamic demands of studio monitoring, analog sounding hardware, software evaluation and critical music listening.

Therefore, the Orb has been designed to deliver all of the speed, dynamics and musical accuracy to satisfy even the most demanding music lovers.

The Orb has also been engineered to take full advantage of today’s multichannel surround formats. The Orb will provide the speed, dynamic impact and realism you have come to expect in a high performance home theater system.

Vandersteen M5-HPA


The M5-HPA is a solid-state design descended directly from the flagship monoblocks.

It will be substantially less expensive, but will offer an astonishing amount of the flagship's sonic magic. While the M7-HPA is designed specifically for Vandersteen's Model Seven Mk II speakers, the M5-HPA will work with a much wider variety of loudspeakers and Vandersteen powered subwoofers.

To accomplish this goal, while the M7-HPA's high-pass is fixed at 100Hz, the M5-HPA's internal high-pass filtering is adjustable to any of the following five settings: 20Hz, 40Hz, 80Hz, 100Hz, 200Hz.

Vandersteen for years has employed high-pass filtering with powered subwoofers for the ultimate in powered-bass performance. When paired with a Vandersteen powered-bass speaker like the Quatro Wood CT the M5-HPA forms a complete powered-bass speaker system in which the amplification is perfectly optimized over the entire frequency range.

Richard Vandersteen is responsible for the M5-HPA’s overall design and architecture; the amplifier was developed and is built in partnership between Vandersteen Audio and Dean Klinefelter, a talented designer and engineer in his own right.

Vandersteen powered-bass speaker systems are the ultimate expression of Richard Vandersteen’s philosophies on design and performance, formed over decades of industry-leading design & research & innovation.

M5-HPA's technical attributes:

Zero-Feedback Solid-State Design With Dual Single-Ended Circuits Connected By The Speaker Load
All Signal Transistors N-Channel Bipolars
No Emitter Resistors
Minimal Circuit Path- Only 5 Parts In Signal Path Per Phase
10 Separate Power Supplies
Adjustable High-Pass Filter (20Hz, 40Hz, 80Hz, 100Hz, 200Hz)
300-Watts Into 4 Ohms / 150-Watts Into 8 Ohms
Made In The USA

Holton Five-Zero-Zero Supreme


The Holton Five-Zero-Zero Supreme is the latest design from Holton Audio and is a true dual mono bloc power amplifier encapsulated in one chassis.

Featuring a 2KVA toroidal power transformer which is suspended underneath the main amplifier circuitry mounted on its own mezzanine floor. The power supply features 300,000uf of storage and extensive additional supply decoupling on the input VAS driver stages. The new supreme also has additional MOSFET driver stage to tightly control the main Dual Die MOSFET output stage, resulting in much improved bass authority and extention; improved imaging and spacial 3D sound stage control.

The enlarged power output stage on the Holton 500 Supreme allows 2 ohm loads to be driven to 750 watts RMS per channel allowing even the most demanding loudspeakers to be powered with ease.
