Grundig announces return of Audiorama spherical speakers
September 2, 2008 Grundig's disco-ball-esque speakers blasted funk in the 70s, and now the company is releasing a model for a new generation to enjoy. The Audiorama 9000 is set for an October release, for an RRP of €1100. The speaker set consists of two deep mid-range chassis, and incorporates a hyperbolically diverted treble system that provides clear 360 degrees surround sound without the “lattice fence effect”.
The Audiorama 9000's two long excursion bass mid-range speakers form a closed bass system that enables fast impulse processing, while a special design protects the treble sound from the pressure of the bass notes. Crisp bass sound is also ensured by the anodized aluminum membrane, which provides maximum stiffness. The Audiorama’s 1-inch silk dome tweeter can transmit the finest signals, and the cast aluminum cage with multiple rear ventilation ensures minimum stream loss. The Audiorama 9000 has a rated load of 120 watts, with a maximum load of 180 watts.
The Audiorama 9000 will be available in black and in white, with more color options planned for 2009.
