Vimberg Speakers

Hi Guys,

Anybody owns Vimberg speakers?
Have you compared the normal version to the D version? (Diamond tweeter)
What were your listening impressions?
What do you drive them with? Are they difficult to drive being 4 Ohms?
Anyone heard them with the constellations Mono 1.0?
Are they difficult to place in the room?
Are they versatile speakers?

I'm going to rebuild a system from scratch and I'm interested in the Mino.
I don't want to spend more on power than on the speakers (ie too difficult to drive)

Any insight is appreciated,


Agree with you Steph. Only heard these once, wd hear again in another system.  I have the same midrange drivers as the Mino in a set of speakers at home and can only say they def need a warm side of neutral set up. Currently use a tube pre w class D power, which works pretty well.
I actually did write to Jeff Fritz, thanks for the advice.
For those interested he published my mail as well as his response

If you guys like the sound of Accuton drivers, another company that uses these is Estelon.  I heard these some years back at the So Cal Audio show and was mightily impressed.  I think it was the model XB on demo.  But the XA and models up the line have gotten rave reviews.
I think Marten also uses accuton drivers.
When Jorn Janczak (Tidal / Vimberg) was asked about it, he said that drivers are like grapes, and you can make either vinegar with it or very good wine...And that the drivers are just a base but the rest of the speaker makes a big difference
@audiotroy, while I recognize it's nearly impossible to compare one speaker to another in different systems, I am compelled to ask if you have experience with Radiho D1.1 and if so, how does their sound compare to the Amea?
