Harmony Through Symbiosis
This 2-way transducer in monitor format combines the advantages of the floor-standing speaker with easy integration into the living room. The Orfeo is best suited to rooms up to 30 square meters. The transparency and detail of the Orfeo is very rare in this size and price range. It produces crystal clear sound, satisfying even the most demanding listeners. The Orfeo houses two systems that are also used in the larger models of the line. In the low-mid range, a 18 cm Scan Speak system with a very light coated cellulose membrane and double magnet is used. Its strong drive in conjunction with the very low mass allows accurate pulse reproduction and ensures an exceptionally high efficiency. The tweeter is an Odeon-made Audax tweeter that, in conjunction with the spherical bullet horn made of high-strength plywood (6.5 inches), provides the highest resolution and distortion-free treble range.
The crossover is “hand-wired” using the highest quality components.
In order to keep the deviations between the channels as small as possible, we use selected components in the crossovers with a maximum deviation of only one percent. Only non-aging components (film capacitors) are used. The coils used come from Mundorf. In most loudspeakers in the high-end range, the crossovers are built on Pertinax boards and the individual components are connected by conductor wire paths. In contrast, the Orfeo crossovers are wired by hand, soldered point to point and then mechanically secured to prevent movement of the sensitive components and thus reducing negative vibration effects on the crossover components. The point-to-point wiring minimizes electrical transitions in the signal path. What is regarded as a quality feature in high-quality tube amplifiers is rarely implemented in loudspeaker construction as consistently as in ODEON AUDIO products.
