Vienna Acoustics Klimt The Kiss Loudspeaker
 
Condition: Mint (8/10)
 
Reason for Sale:
 
Moving and upgrading to Vienna Acoustics Klimt The Music, one higher up and the flagship speaker
 
This is a reference grade speaker. Sonically, it is in between the clear and fast Dynaudio sound and the lush older Sonus Faber one. You get the best of both worlds – warmth, and musicality together with speed, bass slam and a natural full midrange. Bass is punchy and impactful like Dynaudio but with more texture. Likewise, vocals are clear and natural but with a seductive fullness and tonal density. It is a good all-rounder that plays well on all musical genres. Unlike some musical speakers that are too laid back for Rock or Pop, these are fast and boogie with PRAT aplenty. Like all Vienna Acoustics speakers, they excel at Classical.
 
These speakers are flexible with room placement as they are adjustable in many ways according to listening preferences due to their innovative design.
 
The cabinetry is furniture grade with an understated Sapele wood and true Piano Black lacquer in a stylish Cubist inspired design.

Reviews:
 
Stereophile – Class A
 
 
"The Kiss was exquisitely capable of revealing the emotional core of every type of music I played through it. There are speakers that I judge accurate but never really warm up to. The Kiss was not one of them. Part of its cuddle factor may well have been the seamless response of its midrange driver. Certainly, Vienna Acoustics isn't wrong when they point out that this driver alone covers the entire vocal range"
 
"I have also fallen under the spell of the Vienna Acoustics Klimt The Kiss….the smoothness and relaxed seamlessness of The Kiss's midrange to high frequencies made it awfully persuasive—especially for lovers of vocal music"
 
“I'd put Vienna Acoustics' Klimt The Kiss up against some of my favorite speakers in the world. The Kiss is a really large speaker masquerading as a stand-mount. In fact, it's both, but visually it "disappears" nicely, and many listeners will jump on it for precisely that reason”
 
“Furthermore, the innovative rake and toe-in adjustment screws might make The Kiss work better than more conventional designs in many acoustic environments. It doesn't matter how good a speaker is if it doesn't sound good in your room”

Hi Fi Plus – Editor’s Choice
 
“Instruments and voices presented by The Kiss have a natural colour and substance to them, performances a coherent and singular presence that places them almost physically in the room. In part that is down to the emphatic low-frequency performance, one that offers up a solid rhythmic foundation and plenty of well-directed energy: in part to the fulsome harmonic envelope the speaker provides”
 
“The Kiss delivers remarkably natural soundstages and perspectives from a whole range of material; so much so that it makes you realize just how congested, curtailed and bent out of shape many stereo pictures are. This is essentially natural, in terms of spread, scale and presentation.
 
“The Kiss was right from the start. It was inviting, engaging and deeply communicative.”
