Tonian Labs' Oriaco Loudspeakers

Tonian Labs was one of several smaller companies at T.H.E. Show that depend on direct sales and a few dealers to get their products to the public. I'm glad I encountered them again, because their Oriaco G6 loudspeaker ($4500/pair) united with a Denon 70Wpc integrated and Marantz CD player to deliver very clear and colorful sound.

Designed by Tony Minasian, a 30-year speaker designer who also works as a recording engineer, the Oriaco G6 includes a Fostek driver, a top-firing tweeter from La Voce of Italy, and a modified SB Acoustics forward-firing tweeter. One of three speaker models from the company, it excelled on Jasper Dutz and Brad Dutz's Isolation—one of Minasian's CDs that he had for sale at the show.

They used to have a model based on the larger PHY driver that was a fun thing to listen to.

(Keep in mind, I think 20 years ago is 'last week,' so no idea about how long ago it really was.)

Ahh, here we go, from 2008...
