The Excellence series is an extraordinary new addition to Audes’s diverse family of products. Its design and concept are based on the desire to offer the finest audio product that sets new audiophile standards in high-value loudspeakers.
Excellence 5 does not need a long introduction. It is Audes’s pride and joy, designed to be known for its reputation of validity without any compromise to the smallest details and nuances. Just like a fine musical instrument this product will become a classic before its time.
Every model in the Excellence line has a unique and profound design foundation, like its ultra-massive front panel with rounded side edges to eliminate any unwanted interferences. The side and rear panels were created to embrace the cabinet with the finest grades of wood veneer. The cabinet’s stability is ensured by a substantial cabinet base and adjustable floor spikes.
The Excellence series utilises the finest audiophile grade components. Audes has incorporated a fabric dome tweeter (SEAS, Norway), which has been submerged into the cabinet to diminish negative influences of cabinet interferences. The paper cone mid-woofer drivers are the finest SEAS products. Audes has developed proprietary 8″ woofers specifically designed for the Excellence line to ensure unprecedented and unmatched ability to recreate an articulated bass. The crossover network utilises the world’s finest Mundorf capacitors. Audes research and development team has vigorously selected and tested every component. Audes chooses only the best and the world’s finest components, Audes does not take shortcuts and does not accept compromises.
