At the High End show in Munich, Berlin-born Voxativ GmbH is presenting a new line of affordable, plug+play, all-in-one Absolut systems. This is the brand’s first integrated package to include both a pair of Voxativ loudspeakers in combo with a new integrated amp/DAC. On active display will be the Absolut Hagen system (5” single-driver monitors) for $7,900.
Providing both amplification and digital source capabilities, the accompanying Absolut Box is a new Class A/B integrated amp with built-in DAC optimized to make the most of the designated loudspeaker via amplification power and custom DSP. With the DSP, the handmade 5” drivers are linear down to an amazing 45Hz.
Not only is this Voxativ’s first solid state amp, but it is also their first digital source component, allowing for a complete Voxativ system from DAC to drivers. The inspiration for this new integrated system approach was to create a Voxativ quality system for music lovers that isn’t complicated. To play music, all you need is a smartphone or computer to losslessly stream your music files or favorite services like Qobuz, TIDAL via Bluetooth Apt-X, WiFi or optical in (also ROON compatible over Wifi.) Additionally, there is an analog input for the connection of an additional source (like phono-stage, etc.) as well as preamp output for active subwoofer or to be used as a dedicated source output into another amp (like the Voxativ T211 SET Integrated).
According to chief designer Holger Adler, “Everything has been optimized to make the most of our horn-loaded widebanders. To do this, we brought together some of the most verboten audio ingredients - Wifi, Bluetooth, solid-state, DSP, switching power supply - into a very special sounding recipe that challenges conventional audiophile prejudices. No one part makes or breaks a system — it’s how it’s all brought together. We even surprised ourselves.”
The Voxativ room will be powered, connected, grounded and treated by an array of award-winning UEF technology from California-based Synergistic Research.
As a closing tease, If anyone thinks that Voxativ is stepping away from the no-holds-barred high-end approach, there is one more thing. This year’s Munich show will also see an early preview of an entirely new horn-loaded creation that will draw both eyes and ears for a double-look. What will it be? Stay curious and see.
