Celebrated in 1987 for its unique design by the New York Museum of Modern art where it was displayed, and for its unique audio quality by worldwide audio enthusiasts who bought one of the 50 pairs then produced, the Goldmund Apologue stands forever as a major milestone in Goldmund history.
25 years later, Goldmund is paying a tribute to this extraordinary product by issuing a Limited Series of 25 Goldmund Apologue Anniversary with an exactly identical design but with all the technological progress made by the company during those 25 years.
The 1987 edition of the Apologue was a 3-way passive speaker. The Apologue Anniversary comes with twice as much drivers and built-in amplification totalizing 3600W for a pair.
To this extreme power, Goldmund added the latest signal corrections developed by Goldmund Fundamental Research Department. If it is scientifically correct to say that the Apologue Anniversary is 100% corrected both in amplitude and phase, providing for the first time a “perfect response” from a pair of Speakers, we prefer to look at the technical achievements in this model from another angle. We do not develop technologies or manufacture equipment just for the sake of it.
Our ultimate objective and reward is to create emotions.
We believe that the more perfect the sound reproduction, the more intense these emotions will be. So we focus on the results the technologies we develop can provide in this sense. These are listed below:
To the perfection of the sound, we also wanted to add the highest level in the design, ease of use and installation.
The signal feeding the Apologue Anniversary is sent exclusively wirelessly, so the 2 speakers of a Stereo System can be presented without any cable, except for an AC plug that can be installed below the speaker. So the superb design, with all its details can be admired by walking around the speakers, a possibility usually dangerous due to connecting cables. Goldmund thinks there is no reason to admire such an exceptional sculptural object only from the front and a pair of Apologue Anniversary can be observed as if they were in a Museum, even if playing Music at the same time.
The Apologue Anniversary will be available as a standard version with the Goldmund aluminum finish but is also customizable in any desired finish thanks to the services provided by the Goldmund Shop.
