ORION Loudspeaker System - EU

Build this unique loudspeaker yourself or let us build it for you

The ORION is a loudspeaker that I would love to see in any music lover's home. I am convinced that it will provide endless hours of enjoyment. It is a speaker that disappears and instead lets you experience music as it has been captured in the making. "True to the original" has been my guiding principle. With the ORION I feel that I have achieved my dream of building a speaker that excels sonically, yet is reasonable in its size and visual impact. For the ORION System I use the absolute best components wherever it is critical for accurate sound reproduction. The ORION System price could be kept low because you purchase it directly from the manufacturer. For a full description of the ORION read the specific pages on this website.

Several ORION System components can be delivered in Europe by Joachim Gerhard Design. 

  • Active crossover/equalizer in a brushed aluminum or black front panel cabinet. Subsonic filter switch.     
    1800 + VAT + shipping
  • All drivers for ORION+ (4 x 830452, 2 x W22EX001, 4 x T25CF002)    
    1698 + VAT + shipping
  • All cables. Price according to length and connector quality
For amplification Joachim Gerhard recommends four Alesis RA 300 stereo power amplifiers which can deliver 8 x 90 W into 8 ohm, or alternatively, four Alesis RA 150 stereo power amplifiers for 8 x 45 W into 8 ohm. 
I have recently heard complaints about these amplifiers, that they pass through power line switching transients which cause loud noise in the loudspeaker. This could be potentially dangerous for the tweeter. Also low level hum seems to be a problem. Proceed with caution if you decide for the Alesis power amplifiers. - SL

What you hear is not the air pressure variation in itself 
but what has drawn your attention
in the streams of superimposed air pressure variations 
at your eardrums

An acoustic event has dimensions of Time, Tone, Loudness and Space
Have they been recorded and rendered sensibly?
