These are some of the first of this range of small speakers to be made and as such can be considered as development models. The internal dimensions and the sound is the same as the other speakers in this range however the epoxy detailing was an experiment . The Baffle is visually thicker than the final product. Only one pair available.
The cabinets are made from 30mm thick Finnish birch ply. This thickness of ply plus internal bracing ensure an extremely rigid carcass allowing the driver to perform to its limits giving you a very sweet and clear sounding experience with a cohesion unique to full range drivers.
The baffle is covered in sawn rippled walnut and finished in a wax oil.
Satin Nickel heavy-duty binding posts can be used with banana plugs or will accept wire up to 8 gauge.
Back of the speaker are in the house purple
Finish is a clear satin wax oil
The data sheet from the driver manufacturer for those who like the complete low down 4 ” full range driver
“These speakers are small in size but deliver a soundstage worthy of large speakers; That is, they distribute sound evenly throughout the room, even if it is large. THE sound is refined and alive. We reach a very good level of definition for a speaker of this range. The price / quality ratio of this small speaker is undeniably very good.” Emmanuel Levy of www.hifi.fr
The small speakers – Pico Bello – I think, are amazing.
It’s very small, very cute, with a small box and a small speaker!
Okay, don’t be fooled, it’s the same designer, and they weigh two tons. Or not far!
Real gear, always.
Listening to these, they are little wonders. Capable of satisfying all demanding amateurs.
Not a huge sound level, it’s true, but a real beautiful sound, and you can
listen to any music on it, including the great orchestral masses,
jazz, and a little electro, I’m ashamed but I like it!
Favorite for me.
