Gingko Audio’s Sextet Speaker System builds on the Tubulous™ technology from Gingko Audio, the Swarm™ from AudioKinesis, and unique cabinet construction from Salk Sound. It is voiced for a natural, lively sound that one would hear at a concert. The result is not necessarily the ultra-detailed audiophile sound; that is not what you hear at live concerts. Instead, it is an evocative sound that lets the listener forget about sound and hear music.
The Sextet’s physical design will not draw attention to itself. Visually, as well as aurally, with the correct configuration, the system will blend into its environment, be it a small room or a larger hall.
Gingko Audio’s Sextet
|Monitor Speakers built on Gingko Audio’s Tubulous™ technology and experience with the ClaraVu™ and Clarissa LE™ speakers.|
|Powered Subwoofers, based on AudioKinesis’s Swarm Subwoofer System, with built-in amplifier and digital crossover to match the Sextet Monitors.|
|Primary and Outboard Passive Subwoofers (up to four units) that can be driven by an external sub amplifier in various configurations to suit the room’s acoustics.|
|Dedicated Stands designed for the Sextet Monitors.|
Many audiophiles already own a pair of speakers they like, selected after careful research from many options on the market. These can be monitors on stands or full-range floor-standing models. However, most speakers have some limitations at the lowest frequencies. Getting the lowest 5 Hz of bass performance may double the cost of the speakers.
With the Sextet’s Swarm subwoofer system, the user can address these limitations while retaining much of the “personality” of their speaker’s sound. The subwoofers can be placed at different locations to fit into the room’s décor yet configured to yield the smoothest low frequencies performance. Each subwoofer can be connected in parallel or in series, in phase or out-of-phase, sealed or ported.
The integrated Sextet monitors can be added at a later date to complete the “Sextet Sound”.
MSRPs range from US$ 2000 for a Sextet Swarm 2 configuration (one powered sub with built-in amp and one passive outboard sub) to US$ 8995 for a Sextet 6.1 configuration (two Sextet monitors, two primary subs, two outboard subs, outboard sub amplifier). Walnut, cherry, and matte black are standard finishes; custom finishes can be accommodated at extra costs. For more information, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
