Manger z1In een verhaal dat ook heel mooi de achtergronden en werking van de luidsprekers uitlegt, geeft Kari heel mooi zijn fascinatie weer met deze bijzondere muziekmakers.
“First things first: the sound of the Manger Z1 has a number of excellent features. For instance, it’s almost disturbing how self-confidently and fairly, in a right-heartedly balanced way the speaker plays music regardless of the pieces’ frequency distribution.”
“The point is that one gets a strong feeling that the sound, at the risk of sounding banal, only or almost only includes what is on the record, nothing added to it. A buzzling and uncommon experience indeed, but also highly rewarding.”
“[…] the singer’s voice, the relation between the singer and the accompanying orchestra, the orchestral tones, how the various instrument groups join in, the decaying of the sounds, … just great, brilliant, … can hardly become much better than this.”
ConclusieVoor Kari is er maar één conclusie mogelijk:
“On the basis of its technical qualities but also the sonics alone, it is clear that the Manger Z1 is not an ordinary 2-way standmount speaker for beginners. To this date, I have yet to hear a loudspeaker that would reproduce music on the level of the Manger Z1, and would cost less to the extent that would matter financially, even though I can’t remember all the speakers that I’ve heard and reviewed over past 20 years. […] I will not immediately remember another loudspeaker regarding which my linear notes would have had as many “One of the best performances ever?”
