A high end box. Here with a bass from Scan Speak. The treble is taken over by our AMT 60. He has established himself very well in the high-end high-end box market.
Test in Sound and Sound 6- 2019
A short summary:
The frequency response of the OA S161 is in a sense for the textbook. There is not even the "upper bazaar" built into compact boxes. And so the bass creates impressively honest 60 hertz and shines with a perfectly linear course. The AMT behaves quite exemplary, the omnidirectional behavior is free of abnormalities.
And? Is he falling or not? That is basically the question thatI''m the first to be interested in meeting a box with an Air-Motion Transformer. Fortunately, word has spread that you have to be very careful when integrating this type of transducer, otherwise the folded foil will quickly reveal itself as such. She does not do that here. But as a tremendously energetic tweeter with immense dynamic reserves. That''s the way it should be, because that''s the big advantage of this technology, which has all the advantages of a large membrane area, but not its disadvantages. Percussive material has shine and radiance, but it does not annoy - that''s the way it should be. In fact, it''s striking how beautifully drumming basins shine, now that we''re talking about it. Very nice. Of theThe seventeen-scan woofer is undoubtedly a high-quality and perfectly fitting addition, and the refl e system is also perfectly matched. The bass shines with tonal richness and variability - it''s better in such ventilated speakers barely. The OA S161 is an all around unshakable and correct loudspeaker, which knows to convince over the whole spectrum. The big drums in Carreras'' "Misa Creola" have juice and draft, the vocal part is always wonderfully broken down into its individual parts, which is certainly not an easy exercise. The OA S161 positions everything with a light hand in the room - that''s great. Despite undeniable qualities of the recipient, she isshe is clearly a loudspeaker for the discreet and demanding, less the proverbial rocker. That, however, makes her excellent.
