Technology’s AirFoil V Loudspeakers
($30,000) made quite stir at the St.
Tropez strapped to a hard-to-get,
harder-to-hold pair of Convergent Audio
Technologies amplifiers. The photo
cannot convey the speaker’s odd
dispersion characteristics. About this
multi-driver line array, with coupling
woofer, the product’s website states
in part: "This is a true line
source with excellent imaging and
extended vertical and horizontal
dispersion. The panel takes advantage of
the ultra-low distortion and wide
bandwidth of the individual drivers to
achieve stunning resolution and
transparency. The array covers
frequencies from 170 Hz to over 20 kHz,
eliminating the need for crossover
points in the critical mid frequencies.
This insures remarkable reproduction of
inner detail and preserves phase and
time accuracy." Let’s call it
works in progress.
