The NEW Concert Grand Series "BEETHOVEN Concert Grand REFERENCE" reveal the unexpected and will lose yourself in the beauty of music

Vienna Acoustic love crafting loudspeakers for ALL kinds of music, no matter what your musical preferences are.

Vienna Acoustic do not believe in changes just for the sake of changing. When Vienna Acoustic founder and designer Peter Gansterer creates a new speaker line, there is always a pioneering and profound technical reason for it.

First there is the vision. Then there is the exploring of options how to realize the idea. Then the realizing of technical feasibilities and their sorting out.

And then there comes the time of listening to the myriad of combinations, as each part has its individual tone colour. Years of it.

And when the new speaker is presented, the inner circle of Vienna Acoustics and friends is listening for the first time and something changes.

It's the moment when a 30 year old jazz record of Tuck & Patti, which you know inside out since decades, brings tears to your eyes, on the strength of the crystal clear, reradiated, natural intensity.

It's the moment when you lose your temper in a drum solo, electrifying the space around you. To the point.

It's the ease and precision the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, straight from the Viennese Musikvereinssaal, assemble in your living room for a private audience.

Then you know a new level is reached and we sincerely want to share it with the whole world.

 

The Ultimate.

Vienna Acoustic Beethoven Concert Grand Reference is a no-compromise loudspeaker, breaking grounds in setting new standards in state-of-the-art music reproduction.

To say only that the design goals for such a speaker were high efficiency, outstanding dynamic range, excellent low bass extension, and ultra-wide bandwidth from a reasonably compact enclosure, misses the larger point.

The Beethoven's overriding goal is to produce music on such a completely convincing scale that it will transform the listening room and transport the listener.

At the heart of the design stand a brandnew spidercone drivers, one 6 inch midrange and three 7 inch woofers, all with our patented flat Spidercone within a new construction, consisting of 2 distinct cones - the all new Composite Cone.

The plane surface of the spidercone offers the advantage of precise, piston-like movement. Any diaphragm should move in and out as one unit, not as a quivering mass of uncorrelated vibrations. It should move as a perfectly-solid piston. The flat cone is extremely stiff, with bracings of a height of 18 mm (bass) and 14 mm (mid), yet light, respectively, further reinforced by glass fibers in our new X4P mixture.

The rearside bracings are constructed in a way that the whole impulse energy is allocated evenly via the whole surface of the flat cone. Every square centimeter delivers the same impulse as its neighbours, which results in revolutionary impulse response control.

As Vienna Acoustic cone/diaphragm-construction builds upon a very large voice coil, the radiating surface in its middle  is large, thereby making it an significant sound determinant. The countless listening testings brought forth such an unexpected unique combination the we gave it a new name, the Composite Cone. The 5cm area is now an inverted dome made of woven fabric, double-coated on its rearside. Perfection was achieved by listening to various axial positions, with extraordinary homogenous results by employing a recessing of 8mm.

The sum total of the features of the Composite Cone is a peerless symbiosis. Furthermore, one of the reasons why the woven fabric center cone interacts so nicely, is its affinity to the fabric material of our highly musical, hand-coated silk dome tweeter, designed by Vienna Acoustics, hand-crafted by a Scandinavian team of specialists.

This 1.1 inch tweeter is capable of revealing even the finest nuances in a most natural way, while imparting no stridency at all of its own, and consummately extend well down into the midrange spectrum.

The crossover circuitry possesses both, the elegant simplicity of soft filters - pure first order, 6 dB per octave slopes to Bessel second order - and the essential complexity resulting from listening, needed to weave dexterously the drivers' output into a cohesive system. All decisions concerning individual components and the layout of the circuitry were as always made through extensive listening tests.

Specially selecting each component results in a harmonious musicality, while a sophisticated layout helps in clarifying instrumental timbres.

The cabinet is an example of the most advanced European joinery technology available. Not  apparent to the eye is the artfully articulated bracing structure, as well as the carefully chosen separate enclosures for the individual drivers. What is apparent to the eye is the warmth of the handselected veneers, gently eased at the edges with our veneer wrapping technique, and the depth and pureness of the true piano lacquer.

Great engineering demands the angularity; great design achieves an artful form that confers quality and substance.

The sinuous fusion of art and technology allows Beethoven Concert Grand  Reference to amaze aesthetically and perform incomprehensibly in any living space. All of the passionately designed features combine to create the most exceptional characteristic of our new Grand Series Beethoven: the ability to bring the unleashed emotion of music to your home.

      Review :

      « So, what is it about the Beethoven Concert Grands that makes them special? The ability to satisfy, the ability to deliver enough, that they don’t leave you craving more. This is a speaker that obeys the first rule of audio by putting the performance first, breathing life into recordings irrespective of genre or scale. It’s a speaker that has the knack of disappearing -- and taking the rest of the system with it. Small and intimate or huge and imposing, the Beethoven Concert Grands are all about access: access to the event, access to the energy that generated it, access to the emotional range expressed. What they deliver is that most elusive of audio qualities, musical connection -- whether you want to connect with the deeper philosophical aspects of Das Lieder Von Der Erde or indulge in some equally serious air-guitar action. That they do so in a package that is both more obviously accomplished as well as more user and system friendly than previous Vienna speakers is also significant.

      The use of near-identical drivers to cover the most important parts of the musical spectrum brings obvious advantages in terms of time and phase coherence, along with consistent dispersion characteristics. That’s reflected in the remarkable spatial, temporal, dynamic and tonal coherence of the speaker, it’s ability to reproduce broadband input signals without bending them out of shape or disturbing their flow. It’s what makes the music hang together so convincingly, the performances so intelligible. As I’ve already said, those drivers are simply the most obvious facets of the Concert Grand’s engineering, but it’s tempting to conclude that the considerable care and experience that’s been accumulated over the years and lavished on this product -- on its crossover, cabinet and bass voicing -- has finally met its match in terms of driver design. Vienna’s Music Center flat diaphragm, coincident driver was a significant musical step forward. But the combination of identical driver structures across midrange and bass is even more significant: for the company in terms of the performance it can offer, for its customers in terms of the performances they’re going to enjoy. »   Roy Gregory, The Audio Beat, June 23, 2021

      « The Vienna Acoustics Beethoven Concert Grand is an excellent value, both for its high build quality and for its carefully and pleasingly balanced set of sonic attributes, and its limitations in dynamics and output won't be issues for most listeners. Designer Peter Gansterer has nipped and tucked with surgical precision to produce an outstandingly musical loudspeaker for a very reasonable price.

      I spent more than a month listening with complete satisfaction to every kind of music, only occasionally wishing for that Maxell Moment that only bigger, more powerful—and more powerfully priced—speakers can provide. I'll take Gansterer's carefully crafted compromises over a speaker that can play louder and perhaps faster, but fails to deliver the near-full-range tonal and harmonic satisfaction consistently served up by the Beethoven Concert Grand. » Michael Fremer, Stereophile, May 2006
