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.

These speakers will only be available through a kickstarter campaign which will be launching soon – drop me a line if you wish me to keep you posted. They will be available at a reduced rate for the duration of the campaign. The campaign will be run to help increase my production capacity.
“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.
