Aussie Hi Fi stocks the complete range of Duevel speakers: Venus Bella Luna 'diamante' Sirius Enterprise Planets History With twenty years experience in speaker production, design team Markus and Anette Duevel decided to lift the music reproduction industry to the next level. They developed their first omnidirectional horn speaker in 1997, after years of research into radiating horn systems. The special Duevel two-way crossover followed, together with improvements in speaker matching and driver technology. Each generation of Duevel speaker has evolved and the improvement process continues to this day. The Planets Determined to fight prejudice against horns and omnidirectional technology, the Duevels developed the Planets - affordable floorstanding units that radiate a full and incredibly immersive sound. This simply made model, available in eleven colours, is billed as the company's 'appetiser' because it sounds great, looks good, is easy to handle and inexpensive. Don't be fooled by the size, though, these little gems play BIG! If you want truly high performance on a strict budget, the Planets deliver the perfect solution. Breaking a new sound vs price barrier, these remarkable speakers comprise a 5 inch woofer and 1 inch horn loaded tweeter, simple and ingenious crossover technology and reflective spheres inside a finely tuned bottom ported cabinet. The result is a speaker which performs beyond all imagination. Deep taut bass notes, midrange clarity and glow combine with fast transparent highs to provide the listener with a rare musical experience at a highly competitive price. For real, live, room-filling sound from any source, the planets are a stunning speaker choice for both 2-channel music and home theatre playback. Combining truly innovative design with amazing sonic ability, there exists a Planet you can call your own! Sirius This omnidirectional horn speaker is the ultimate expression of Duevel technology. Sirius will take you back to the original recording venue with thunderous bass, glorious mids and soaring highs that combine artfully to fill the largest of listening spaces. Venus Producing quick and lively sound with deep bass, Venus stands strong in small to medium sized rooms. Bella Luna 'Diamante' Transporting you to another place and time, the Diamante's faithful reproduction of the original sound swirls around 360 degrees with completely natural sonic propagation. Special internal octagonal bracing and innovative tuning methods, exclusive to Duevel, make this model perfect for mid-sized listening spaces, easily powered with SET or higher powered amplifiers. Summary The Duevel designs came about because of Markus and Anette Duevel's discontentment with the status quo and their drive for perfection. Having a great love for music, voices, instruments and the emotions and associations they instil, the couple turned their back on traditional speaker design to walk a different way. This love for music drives their search for the perfect 'goosebumps' sound to this day and they are currently working on more models and ideas that they will no doubt continue to bring to life with passion.
