Langerton Configuration Duo Capable
Configuration Duo Capable
An extremely demanding development project by Research Manager Norbert Heinz.
The treble unit and midrange/bass unit are mechanically fully decoupled and moveable relative to each other. This permits previously unheard-of phase homogeneity. The overall configuration is equipped with the best respective single components, which are controlled using filter assemblies fabricated in-house.
Strengths of this low-intermodulation configuration include high efficiency, a very large dynamic range and extremely broad-band playback.
The principles of the Bauhaus materialise in the configuration – form follows function.

Uwe Kirbach of Image HiFi:
"...just as the speakers themselves are an architectural artwork, to the same extent do they draw the listener with them from the very beginning of the "musical architecture" of the recording. From there, it's as if they are totally consumed by the music. A truly captivating speaker that completely earns its name - 'The Capabale Duo'..." Check out the entire review (German)
