Roland Schäfer’s Gegentakt M1 loudspeaker system will arrive at Purité Audio in the very near future.

The M1 is an evidence/measurement based design offering extremely high quality reproduction.

Evidence based, with claims like this?

Area equals Pi  R squared, 3 x  170mm 6.5” versus  1 x 254mm 10”.

Your response is as disingenuous as the marketing spiel itself.

Area of a circle is Pi x radius squared, that is immutable.

The M1 should be here in a week or two, this is a prototype of the Geggantakt M2.

Roland of GGNTKT, added some details of the M2,

‘couple of quick facts while still in prototype phase:

Basically a scaled-up design of Model M1 as a standing speaker, so wide baffle and very shallow: 1100 x 480 x 185 mm (apx. 3.6 x 15.75 x 6 ft.)

It shared the same 44 mm (1.75") titanium compression driver as Model M1, but within a bigger waveguide.

Midbass driver is a 250 mm (10") low distortion design with an Nd-motor in a closed cabinet. Because of it's linear motor and suspension design (verified via Klippel LSI) is can also deliver quite bit of bass.

Additional bass is a 300 mm (12") mounted a the lower back in a ventilated cabinet (2x aerodynamic optimized ports, each located on the side wall). We haven't decided yet which driver, but there are two left. Both share the same impressive specs, like a 100mm (4") voicecoil, +/- >10 mm xmax and a 200mm (8") magnet. Each driver can deliver 105 dB SPL @35 Hz, which gives you plenty of headroom and should be sufficient with any music and non-artificial content.

Similar to Model M1 the overall concept is the shape directivity at every frequency in combination with the waveguide (heights), wide baffle (mids) and the cardioid pattern (bass).

Furthermore there will be patterns to help you integrate bass into your room.

Electronics will be integrated within the speaker this time, expect apx. 1000W SMPS classD per loudspeaker (Pascal again).

Since we use the same DSP platform like Model M1, most filters are FIR based and linear-phase. Also there is advanced limiters and dynamic-EQ, which give you an extra turbo when you need it.’

They’re a remarkably shallow design, which is especially interesting when depth seems to be increasing with many brands. Very much in the Kii and D&D arena in design terms though  

I think I saw €5999 somewhere.  What’s the UK retail price, Keith?

Yes, a baby Kii/8C not that dissimilar in form factor to the Grimm LS1, price will be whatever €5999 is in pounds sterling , sadly pretty much the same I would imagine.

Arrives hopefully in a week or two and then it’s bigger brother the M2 is September .

Delivery of the first pairs of M1 expected in around two/three weeks, with the M2 ( larger brother and Kii/BXT rival ) perhaps on;y six weeks away.

Measurements look stunning almost full-range ,cardioid response built in EQ, built in everything for around £5500 inc vat.
