Leading Swiss loudspeaker manufacturer, PIEGA, has launched the Ace series – an affordable, elegant speaker collection featuring PIEGA’s signature aluminium cabinets and AMT tweeters.
With an aesthetic designed by legendary Swiss designer Stephan Hürlemann, and acoustics developed at PIEGA’s Lake Zurich based factory, the Ace series loudspeakers mark the most affordable aluminium cabinet PIEGA loudspeaker to date. Drawing on technology and acoustic development trickled down from the Master, Coax and Premium models, the Ace builds on the success of, and replaces the well regarded Tmicro series.
Available in the UK from late February, the Ace series consists of a slim, one-metre tall floorstanding loudspeaker, the Ace 50, a compact satellite loudspeaker, the Ace 30, and a landscape format Ace Center for cinema systems. The cabinets are all just 14cm wide and 16cm deep oval aluminium profile, with no visible seams, angles or fixings, designed to appeal to those who want speakers to look as good as they sound.
The braced aluminium cabinets have been specially developed for this trio of loudspeakers and optimised for the 120mm MDS mid/bass drivers common to all three models. The HF unit is also common to all three models, in the form of PIEGA’s tried and tested AMT-1 Air Motion Transformer. This extremely light, large surface area ribbon tweeter is driven by a potent neodymium motor assembly, to create a detailed and fluid upper-frequency response.
The driver combination has been developed to produce punchy bass, detailed midrange and the sweet HF delivery for which ribbon tweeters are famed, all in a svelte, exquisite looking cabinet. The Ace series is all about audiophile quality sound, wrapped in a luxurious, compact aesthetic with wide-ranging appeal.
