In the test:
ARGENTUM 570 Set
– a subtle, precise and stress-free sound. Not least because of the excellent performance delivered by the ribbon, the sound is pleasantly clean and low in noise.
– The sound of the instruments and voices is very “catchy-logical” and “snaps into place” when listening to them, not least because of this.
– tonal neutrality with a – if you put the sound image on graph paper – at most tonal slightly discreetly tuned tweeter. If you want more (or less), you can experiment with the rear toggle switch, but this didn’t produce any more harmonious results in my experiments.
– an excellently structured, locus-sharp three-dimensionality, with an image size that does not rise too far vertically.
– a rather neutral-objective rather than luxuriant midrange, which will certainly give rise to associations with studio monitors in one or the other.
– A bass range that is astonishingly deep for the cabinet size and has a stable level, and which also draws precise contours without any problems.
– The bass is impeccable in its fine dynamics and coarse dynamics, but does not push itself into the foreground. It is in the physical nature of things that larger floorstanding loudspeakers can play even more impressive and grippingly in terms of room presence and coarse dynamics.
– a very complete sound even at low levels.
– Perfectly accurate, even if not exactly design-object processing.
