Klang + Ton Issue 6/2016 Kit New Needle
The broadband experts from Blue Planet Acoustic have done it again: Take a graceful broadband, a not ordinary housing concept, vote it all off carefully and the surprise is done. In this case the construct is called "New Needle" . The name already implies that genes of the "Needle" are stuck in this speaker; This is the extremely delicate Transmission Line box that blew a breath of fresh air into the DIY scene many years ago, because here a ridiculously small driver with a tricky case construction delivered excellent results. The "New Needle" tries something similar, but much larger: The box is 1.2 meters high, but not 14 cm wideand just under 12 inches deep - truly needle-shaped, the whole thing. Sonically, the Omnes Audio BB3.5 driver plays wonderfully in this relatively extreme case! Atmosphere and spatial representation have always been virtues of full-range constructions; this one is no exception, on the contrary. It continues with Mark Knopflers last solo work "Trackers": The New Needle presents a wonderfully throaty and just fitting scratchy vocals - so I know that from much more elaborate constructions.
Our new, extremely chic Transmissionline New Needle stand box with the modern broadband BB3.5 chassis. As the Hobby HiFi in issue 4/2016 Test conclusion already noted "The BB3.5 of Omnes Audio convinced with exwith excellent acoustic qualities. Ideally, it is suitable as a driver for a small transmission line ". This kit is located between the legendary Cyburg Needle and the outstanding Lancetta. Not only of the size, no, also of the tonal qualities at least equivalent. An adult speaker for listening to music at high volume. It delivers absolute top performance in its class and remains affordable in price. In that sense, positive vibration and sound up your life!
PS already shortly we offer you more kits with our golden and versatile BB3.5.
