Music to Our Ears

Music lovers were very impressed when Germany’s Acapella revealed the $80,500/pair High Violoncello II speakers at the CES Exposition. High Violoncello II has a mass-less ion tweeter, that is different from its competitors that use silk or metal composite. The ion tweeter uses a high-voltage pulsating arc that is modulated by the musical signal to create sound. Acapella says that the higher limits of this tweeter is 40 kHz. To improve quality, a small ceramic tube and a bronze horn prohibit the small of ozone from getting out into the room. This speaker is so efficient that it only requires amplifiers of only 15 amps. To add customization, Acapella gives you the option of choosing the horn in a variety of paint colors.
