The loudspeakers from KROMA Atelier in Grenada came to us by a lucky coincidence. This Spanish music art manufactory is more than worth our close look at.
The development of KROMA Atelier loudspeakers has shown that it is indeed crowned with success if the entire loudspeaker is not only technically equipped with great drivers and selected component qualities, but also tuned in terms of resonance. The Spanish guitar is probably the instrument with which the Spanish joie de vivre can be associated. Jumping, tempramental but also just as quiet and subtle. KROMA loudspeakers reflect these characteristics when the music requires it. Whether it’s the spatial image, the stage size, coarse or fine dynamics, all these high-end related terms are common here. KROMA’s slogan is “beyond High End audio” and that’s what hits the nail on the head. They are first-class high-end speakers, but they cross a very important limit. They do all the attributes that are often used in connection with the fine sense of music.
The case is made of Krion. Krion is a material made of a non-conductive and non-magnetic material, which is characterized by its high mass and the absence of resonances, which means that no sound coloration occurs. Elements made of different types of wood – which are used, for example, by renowned violin makers to build their musical instruments – are handmade and placed in critical places with great sound influence. It is by no means a question of turning a loudspeaker into an “instrument” that adds its own signature to the music. Rather, it is about reproducing the music with harmonic overtone frequencies. Thanks to our own
Subbase écho LS technology,
we can understand this approach very well. No metal parts are used in the entire loudspeaker, neither in the housing nor in the filter, not even when fixing the drivers. The plastic chassis fastening screws are adjusted using defined torque. The crossover contains only high-quality tonal filter components, such as.B. the Brands Duelund and Mundorf, combined with very special NOS components.
Nothing is left to chance here and you hear that!
