1+1 Testimonial January 2015

Hi John,
I’ve been meaning to email you to express my sincerest gratitude and appreciation for what you have created in the 1+1’s. They are revolutionary and I am indebted. The imaging and depth is simply unbelievable. Although I have had this email on my list and would have gotten to it within a few days, I was inspired to write it now as I listened to the Nebraska soundtrack, which is a compilation of songs by Mark Orton (who makes regular use of banjo, clarinet and the accordion). Admittedly, I was listening to the 1+1’s as background music while I worked. I found myself looking up incredulously at an area 6 feet to the left of the left speaker. This is where, mid-song, the first notes of banjo appeared in the soundstage. I took a double take and positioned myself slightly more perfectly in front of the speakers and closed my eyes. What I heard should not be coming from speakers this size. You’ve truly made listening to music fun again!!!
All my best,

1+1 Testimonial

Hi John;
I have the 1+1s playing and they are wonderful little gems — I’ve never
heard my system sound so good. I’m pretty sure they’ve found a permanent
home. Thank you so much.

Audience Will Demonstrate New ClairAudient 1+1 Loudspeakers at THE Show in Las Vegas

Audience will be be demonstrating the new ClairAudient 1+1 loudspeakers at THE Show in Las Vegas – January 8 – 11, at the Flamingo Hotel – room 4049. The 1+1 is a one way (crossover-less) dual driver/dual passive radiator design, both in bi-pole configuration. This awesome new design from Audience garnered two awards from The Absolute Sound from THE Show Newport in June 2012. The 1+1 is scheduled for production in about 60 days.

The Absolute Sound Awards from THE Show Newport 2012

During THE Show Newport Beach, Audience displayed its MK II version of the ClairAudient 16+16 flagship loudspeakers and the ClairAudient 1+1. Below is the coverage from Neil Gader and Robert Harley, ‘the absolute sound’:

Best Sound (highest value)
Audience Wavepower amplifier and Wavemaster preamp driving Audience’s ClairAudient 1+1 loudspeaker (see below).
Greatest Bargain
Audience’s new ClairAudient 1+1 loudspeaker. This tiny cube, priced at $1800 per pair, combined the transparency of a one-way crossover less design with the dynamics and extension at the frequency extremes you’d expect from a larger conventional system.

Audience presented one of the smallest and one of the largest new speaker systems geared to promote the scalability of its full-range-driver philosophy. Driven by all Audience power was the new Mk II version of the ClairAudient 16+16 flagship ($72k). It continues as a bi-polar, one-way line source with thirty-two A3-S2 three-inch full-range drivers but has been upgraded with the addition of eight 6” x 9” custom passive radiators. To my ears the difference was quite startling with solid low-end response that didn’t inhibit the speed and crystalline focus that makes this design so listenable. In comparison and obviously bass-restricted, the tiny ClairAudient 1+1 was captivating in how well it retains the flagship’s remarkable voice and timbre ($1800).
