AURUM RODAN 9

SO SMALL - SO BIG

Absolutely exquisite, the new floorstander AURUM RODAN barely towers one meter tall – but looks can be deceiving... Despite, in comparison to others, the more compact dimensions, it still provides all of the classic AURUM attributes: quSENSE tweeter, powerful quadral ALTIMA® midrange and a pressure chamber with two gripping woofers. Combined, they help the RODAN go on to produce a truly life-like sound picture.

The sound converter works its spaces entirely, almost explosively and enthrals with fantastic resolution – all from such a fine and compact cabinet which works on a pressure chamber principle and provides unexpected and impressive bass volume.

AURUM RODAN 9


Summary:
The quadral Aurum Rodan 9 is the smallest floorstanding speaker in the Aurum series – and reckoned to be the most graceful of these 3-way speakers. In terms of how it looks, that’s exactly right. The slim proportions, the extremely successful design and the high-quality finish ensure that this one-meter high pillar can embellish any living room. The daintiness stops when it comes to the sound: here the Rodan very impressively keeps the quadral promise to deliver unexpected bass volumes. It’s also possible thanks to the Aurum-typical pressure chamber/bass reflex construction. Almost more impressive is the impact of the aluminium ribbon tweeter: it helps the Rodan to achieve great transparency and space in its reproduction. The treble level switch also means this speaker fits acoustically into the living room. Anyone looking for a fresh sound transducer could have struck it lucky with the Aurum Rodan 9. The fact that quadral is offering a 10-year guarantee for this loudspeaker is another indicator that the next box change won’t be an issue until a long time into the future.
