Price is for one demo pair of Vivace Mini's in White. $1600.00 firm no tax. Cash or ETF.

This pair is still pretty new and the horn and driver have loosened up, nicely. They sound great with any genre and look fantastic in White with the elliptical design. I've been running them through a 2A3 tube amp which is seductive. They were on a Finale F 168n amp with the 6BM8 tube compliment and that combo coud handle anything, though, a more energetic sound was obvious with this duo than with a 2A3 tube.

Pick up in Kitchener, please.

"The Vivace Mini is a showcase of what we can be done with a 3" full-range driver. Their magic lies hidden in the cabinet design -- a hybrid horn / transmission line -- which we call our Air Cannon Loudspeaker Transmission System. This unique design provides a 10-fold bass gain over a conventional unit. In fact, bass production is close what we'd get if the speaker was equipped with an extra 10" woofer! But because the cabinet's design provides the bass - there is no need for a woofer, and therefore no need for a crossover to create phase shift, time lag, and material changes -- which all may lead to a unnatural treble roll-off we all hate. Imagine -- a violin sounding like a violin (not a viola!), and your favourite soprano, her voice live and breathing, hitting an even higher top note -- through this pair of petite floor-standing speakers. The speaker design also gets the most out of the Italian-made quality high-fidelity driver, delivering unbeatable transient speed, pinpoint imaging, and life-like coherence. These drivers are not usually consider efficient, but when loaded in our Air Canon LTS Design, they become much easier to drive, and even the 3.5W provided by 2A3 tubes can bring out the driver's full potential. The Vivace Mini is rated at 16 Ohms, a resistance at which tubes shine, and provide the most control. In choosing this value, 4- and 8-Ohm versions were also tried, but neither sounded as brilliant. The Mini's small size makes them ideally suite for a smaller spaces like a condo/apartment, den and office -- anywhere you want music to fill the room. Keeping with our Triode Lab philosophy, we also paid close attention to the look of the speakers - and we are happy to announce that they have turned out as sexy as we had first imagined them ! The Vivace Mini will bless your space with a beautiful art-decor piece to look at -- but more importantly -- will do the job in delivering the emotional excitement and sincerity of your favourite music. This is both a reference in single driver world, and a reference to test your tube amplifiers."
