»Array >> Contriva


From the moment of its first release in 2008, the Contriva was hailed as one of the finest speakers, fully regardless of price range. We would just add that its musical performance is the essential trait that is largely more impressive than even its particular optical appearance. Extremely easy to drive it offers nothing less then reproducing music realistic as it was recorded.

    To use the whole enormous dynamic range of it and listening complex music also from time to time very loud we recommend 200 watts at 8 ohm.
