Wavelength and Vaughn
Gordon explained that since the Plasma loudspeaker has no mechanical parts, but rather a very, very hot flame produced by the historic Duquesne Plasma tweeters, there are no resonance issues. The speaker also has a Fostex 208 Sigma midrange and power subs rolling in under 80Hz. This system produced a wonderful midrange, and controlled percussion wonderfully on Dave’s True Story’s “Sex Without Bodies” (24/96) and Rimsky-Korsakov’s Dance of the Tumblers (Reference Recordings, 16/44.1). Bass and depth were fabulous on the latter. Only some treble brightness detracted from the presentation.
