Regardless of its pleasingly delicate dimensions, the Dschinn Mini-TL inspires with an impressively mature sound. It scores with pronounced quiet listening quality, but isn't afraid to really bang on the drum. And with its high sensitivity and good-natured impedance behavior, it offers highly digestible fare even for amplifiers that are not very stable.
For the listening test, we only angled the speakers slightly so that the inside of the housing was visible from the listening position. The relatively low position of the tweeter proved to be unproblematic. In terms of sound, both versions, MTM according to D'Appolito and 2.5 paths, are close together as long as the listening distance is in the range of two to 2.5 meters. At greater distances, the D'Appolito construction has the edge, it then offers a more precisely focused room image. With a particularly small listening distance, the hybrid of both constructions scores points, i.e. the chassis arrangement according to D'Appolito, but with the 2.5-way crossover. It is important that the mid-woofer is placed at the top and the woofer at the bottom.
