The Goldmund Mimesis 11 Wireless Hub

The perfect source and control for a pair of Goldmund Wireless Speakers.

All the Goldmund wireless speakers have been designed so they can be run directly from a computer by using the Goldmund dongle. If they are used in a multi-channel system, they can also be run from one of the Goldmund multi‐channel processor associated with a Goldmund Wireless Transmitter.

The new Goldmund Mimesis 11 solves the problem of connecting one pair of these wireless speakers in a 2‐channel system. The Mimesis 11 is then used as a preamplifier with a built-­in Wireless Transmitter. The Mimesis 11 can receive all kind of sources: analog (2 x RCA), digital RCA SPDif, digital Toslink, USB, and will receive even more in future update options (additional Digital and Wifi Streaming are the most probable as of now). Its volume control allows the 2-­channel system level adjustment and the output stereo signal can be sent either by Spdif coaxial like other Goldmund processors (4 x paralleled coaxial RCA outputs), but also as a 2­‐channel Wireless signal through a rear­‐panel wireless antenna.

The associated Remote­‐control is ultra‐simple and based on the Apple universal remote. The unit is matching in design and finishes the new Eidos 17 Universal player so they can be stacked to build a complete compact system used a source for a pair of Goldmund standalone speakers, from Micrometis to Apologue.

The Goldmund ProLogos Plus

In order to push performance above the Prologos, Goldmund has presented recently the Prologos Plus, using the same frame and general construction, but slightly higher in size.

To achieve an even more extended response in the low frequencies, a third way has been added to the Prologos 2­‐ way topology, using a 7” Woofer of extreme linearity.

The Mid-­range and tweeter remain the same drivers used in the Prologos and the same drivers used in the Goldmund Apologue Anniversary.

In order to keep the high efficiency and high SPL capability of the Prologos, and additional Telos circuit is used and an exceptional 3-­way crossover is implemented in the Digital domain with full Amplitude, Phase and Time correction.

The Prologos Plus enclosure remains quite compact (600x288x392mm), and fully built in metal. The same accessory Mechanical Grounding Frames and stands are available to even increase the dynamic range and neutrality in the low frequencies range.

The Goldmund ProLogos Plus version is equipped with a Goldmund wireless receiver linking the speaker to the digital signal from a preamplifier connected to a Goldmund Wireless Transmitter, or directly from a computer with the Goldmund Dongle Emitter.

For a low additional price the Goldmund traditional metal finish can be replaced by a lacquered precious wood finish. If ordered in advance the ProLogos Plus can be finished bespoke with a nearly limitless choice of rare woods finish.

The Goldmund Eidos 17 Universal Player

The Eidos 17 is the newest Goldmund Universal Player of small dimension and reasonable cost. It is the perfect source for a 2-channel or Multi-channel system.

The unit is matching in design and finish of the new Mimesis 11 Hub so both units can be stacked to build a small but complete system controlling any one pair of the Goldmund Wireless speakers, even the most ambitious.

The player is based on the latest Oppo design, specially adapted by Oppo to Goldmund requirements.

It is assembled in a heavy‐duty ultra-­rigid “Mechanical Grounding” structure, providing the sound quality and image stability that made the Goldmund Universal players famous.
