Artos Audio Moonglow Speakers
The »MOONGLOW« is the entrance to the world of ARTOS AUDIO. Not just a speaker in its price range, not just an entry-level model and not just a scaled down Sunrise. The goal during the design process of the »MOONGLOW« was to create a speaker that offers extremely compact dimensions, an elegant and timeless appearance while offering outstanding sonic performance. Just another masterpiece from ARTOS AUDIO - at an affordable price level.
With just 102cm (40") height and 42cm (16.5") depth the »MOONGLOW« can be regarded as a truly compact floor-standing speaker.Although it is quite difficult at this price point, the cabinets are made by the same skilled carpenters that build the cabinets for the Hurricane. The lute-shaped Air-Flow-Technology enclosure is build using our unique multi-layer construction. More than 40 exclusive veneers are available - all covered by a 10-layer high-gloss piano lacquer. While the enormous efforts remain hidden from the eye, namely the inner structure of the cabinet, you will easily recognize the quality of the finish and the heavy WBT terminals.
The »MOONGLOW« is a sophisticated 3-way-design and offers much more than it might be expected. A 30mm Ceramic-Tweeter delivers crystal clear highs. For the midrange and the bass two 16cm ceramic drivers are in charge. All drivers are made in an exclusive graphite-coated version - the typical white Accuton drivers are available upon request. The crossover uses 1. order filters with 6 dB slope steepness only, which allows us to minimize the number of parts in the signal path. To eliminate the unavoidable resonances of the drivers and the enclosure a total of four absorber circuits are used. Needless to say that all parts are made by the renowned company Mundorf.
Offering a high-efficiency and a very linear impedance behavior the »MOONGLOW« can be driven by nearly every integrated amplifier with just Watt output power.
