Horn speakers

Matterhorn MKII

The top of the line Bastanis passive powered speakers!


 

The passion for music and the continuous research for perfectionist sound quality made the Bastanis MATTERHORN MKII speakers come true. We use new methods to make the speaker cones behave better. This allows a puristic speaker design that makes the Bastanis MATTERHORN MKII concept extremely efficient. All treatments are handmade to get the best possible result pushing the limits to a higher level.

The Bastanis MATTERHORN MKII speakers show the beauty of sound, they do everything and even more! They can be powered by a SE fly- power tubed amp of about 1,5 W but they also shake the room using a high-wattage solid state amp. The fine dynamics and the ability to deliver full structures at lowest listening levels is unmatched and they belong to the most powerful and dynamical speakers of all times. The floor-firing bass horns allow to place the MATTERHORN in small to big rooms because the bass is self-adjusting to the size of the room and the size of the free floor space.

The Bastanis MATTERHORN MKII speakers let you feel the essence of music and take you to the top!

  • Midrange colouration from cone break up is absent.
  • The ultra high efficiency of 100 dB/1W/1m and the crossoverless design offers direct coupling of the wideband drivers to the power amp.
  • The floor- firing basshorn-  design offers superior bass- response with extremly dynamic, detailed and fundamental performance.
  • The Bastanis Gemini MKII dipole tweeters are a class of their own.

Wildhorn MKII

Size Matters!


 

The Bastanis Wildhorn MKII loudspeakers can be the more clever alternative. The Bastanis Wildhorn MKII speakers are compact looking and so they are visually easy to integrate in most listening rooms, fulfilling even the most sophisticated audiophile demands. It has never been possible before to dive so deeply into the world of music in so easy and simple! The Bastanis Wildhorn MKII speakers set a new quality standard in the world of passive loudspeakers – by efficient minimalism and an uncompromising quest for sonic perfection. The Bastanis Wildhorn speakers turn the standard market  price structure upside down and open up completely new perspectives.

The Bastanis Wildhorn MKII speakers offer the same qualities as the Wildhorn MKI speakers but they come with the Bastanis Gemini MKII tweeters which increase the clean, detailed and smooth response of the Bastanis Gemini MKI tweeters in a full step up. The sound of the Bastanis Wildhorn MKII speakers in comparison is even more detailed and more natural.

Many years of experience and the ability to find elegant working solutions beyond the „iron laws“ of speaker- building combined with the traditional handcrafting methods let the door open more wide. The 12“ fullrange drivers offer superior dynamics and transient response due to their large sound-emitting surface. Our unique process of cone- treatments allows the fullrange speaker direct coupling to the power amp for best control and without any parts downgrading the quality of the signal path. To simplify the most complexed requirements enables the Bastanis Wildhorn MKII speakers to offer superb detail for instant „live“ music feeling. The Bastanis Wildhorn MKII speakers cabinet- design is based on self- regulating floor- firing backloaded basshorns. This cabinet- design offers unique dynamics, clean and fundamental basses for large and also smaller listening rooms from 16 m² on. The area of the virtual horn mouth chamber varies and adjusts the bass response independently of the room and the placement. The basses are extremely clean and dynamic, even if they does not quite reach the extreme performance of the bigger diameter 15“ wideband drivers Bastanis Matterhorn MKII speakers. The enormous efficiency of 100 dB / 1 W / 1 m, the smooth impedance curve and the low demand for electrical damping from the amplifier provide optimal conditions for fly- powered Single-Ended tube amplifiers. If the full dynamic range of the Bastanis Wildhorn MKII speakers is to be exploited and a powerful amplifier is connected the Bastanis Wildhorn MKII speakers happily produce max. dynamics which you remember from big professional speakers only.

  • Midrange colouration from cone break up is absent.
  • The ultra high efficiency of 100 dB/1W/1m and the crossoverless design offers direct coupling of the wideband drivers to the power amp.
  • The floor- firing basshorn-  design offers superior bass- response with extremly dynamic, detailed and fundamental performance.

Rothorn MKII

The best sounding speakers to place in a smaller/medium sized room.


 

The Bastanis Rothorn MKII speakers offer full High End sound quality from the bottom to the top. They are able to transport the spirit of music, no matter if Classical music or Rock, from low to “livelike” levels, in small to medium sized rooms – without any limitations!

The floor-firing bass horn offers much more dynamics and fundamental basses than you can imagine from the compact size.

The absence of crossover-parts in the signal-path of the wideband drivers reveals all the fine details which make the music come alive.

The musical structures stay in place, even at lowest listening-levels.

The high efficiency and the easy load make it possible to connect any power-amp from SE tubed amps to high wattage solid state amps.

The Gemini MKII tweeters are coupled to the wideband- drivers by a single cap for extended, airy highs.

Bastanis Rothorn MKII speakers offer a combination of slim and aesthetical look combined with excellent soundquality and dynamics which only can be reached using very big and expensive speakers. The Bastanis Rothorn MKII speakers are step ahead regarding the possibilities when you like to place your speakers in a smaller/medium sized room!

Bastanis Rothorn MKII speakers combine a 10″ crossoverless wideband drivers with backloaded cabinets. The floor- loaded basshorn- cabinets offer compact size with fundamental basses and superior dynamics.
