Zellaton - Best of Show - Munich High End. Robert Harley of The Absolute Sound: "For sheer beauty of sound, nothing in the MOC equaled the Zellaton loudspeaker"
Zellaton - Best of Show - Munich High End. Jonathan Valin of The Absolute Sound:
"Here is what the Zellaton Reference does better than any other cone speaker I've auditioned: Reproduce LPs and digital media with simply unparalleled speed, openness, and resolution. Everything from entire vocal and instrumental lines in large ensembles to the tiny timbral and textural details that characterize (and humanize) the performances of soloists is reproduced with such newfound clarity and realism (and with such a complete absence of the usual metal, plastic, paper, ceramic, diamond, or carbon-fiber cone/membrane sonic signature) it is as if the recordings themselves have been remade, remixed and remastered by the world's greatest mastering engineer. And the Zellaton References do this utterly astonishing trick without ever sounding "analytical." Indeed, on this day in this venue their tone color was well nigh perfectly natural from top to bottom, and their "disappearing act" nearly complete. Not without reason does their U.S. importer, Gideon Schwartz of Audio Arts, call them "Quad 57s with meat on their bones"

RMAF Best of Show Nomination - The Absolute Sound.
I was intrigued by the pioneering German company Zellaton (which invented the sandwich driver) when I heard one of its speakers in Munich earlier this year. In Denver Audio Arts showed the $49,750, two-and-a-half-way Zellaton Grand "Purist Version" - purist, I suppose, because of its custom-cast crossover parts.
RMAF Favorite Rooms - Ultrahighendreview.com.
Finishing up on a positive note, one of my favorite rooms was that of Swiss component manufacturer CH Precision and German loudspeaker manufacturer Zellaton. On demo were the Zellaton Grand "Purist Vision" loudspeakers with Dueland custom cast passive crossovers ($49,750), which developed a convincing soundstage with well-controlled bass, neutral to warm midrange, and extended, airy highs. I thought they sounded superb. Just another great example of what an accomplished product and set-up team can do in a challenging room.
