Steinheim has launched its new state-of-the art passive speaker

This speaker was created in pure and well-studied lines to create not only a superb look, but unparalleled sound rendition, based on the concept behind the already well-reputed Alumine. It will enthrall future owners with its exceptional musicality, its three-dimensional space, and vibrantly alive, natural soundstage.

Then there’s its flawless rendering of any genre of music, along with impressive sound levels from the deepest bass to the highest notes. The Reference is also distinct in its exceptional ease-of-use, thanks to remote operation of the MTM couple (medium tweeter) diffusion angle. 

It also adapts to all amplification systems and rooms, thanks to a medium-bass passive crossover included in a separate housing unit that inserts between the amplifier and the speaker.
