Philharmonie de Paris’ speakers
The acoustics of the Parisian Philharmonie concert hall from your living room sofa
Speakers designed by Jean Nouvel and Amadeus Audio
The Grande Salle of the sophisticated Philharmonie de Paris concert hall vibrates to the rhythm of Berliner Philharmoniker. The crowd anxiously awaits to hear one of the symphonic orchestra’s gods. This is, without doubt, a unique chance to enjoy the best acoustics of all times. For many years, sound professionals have worked hard to reach sound perfection. However, it was not until 2015 that they excelled in finding the sublime synchrony of sound and architectonic spaces. The turning point was achieved by the renowned architect Jean Nouvel when he decided to conceive the Philharmonie concert hall.
The elegant Philharmonie concert hall and its perfect acoustics left no one indifferent. It even captured the eye of the Amadeus’ Director of Research & Development, Michel Deluc, when he noticed the unbeatable electroacoustic integration. Amadeus, a french company with more than 20 years exclusively dedicated to developing sound projects, proposed the well-known architect a collaboration. The joint collaboration between the famous architect and the celebrated audio brand set off in the creation of the speakers with optimal acoustics. This combination of innovation and technology was not only thought for mastering and recording professionals that want to capture performances by the World’s most prestigious symphonic orchestras but also for the general public. Even Juan Diego Flórez, King of Tenors, was shocked by the elegance of these speakers: 1.6-meter-tall, 547 machined pieces of birch veneer with fine and delicate lines. Its success is amazing among opera lovers because it gives them the chance to enjoy optimal sound thanks to its 2170 Hz Crossover frequency from the own homes. The Philharmonia speakers are a must for authentic music lovers.
If you are interested in these speakers the price for a pair is $39,900 USD (VAT not included).
