(December 8, 2023) Switzerland-based Stenheim recently launched its new Alumine Two.Five, a passive two-way floorstanding speaker, at a media event held at the Power Station recording studio in New York City. The speaker was first announced this past May and made its world debut at the High-End Munich show in Germany.
“The Power Station at BerkleeNYC was the ideal venue for the launch, having witnessed the creation of numerous iconic albums by some of the biggest names in contemporary music such as The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen or Madonna,” said Jean-Pascal Panchard, Stenheim’s CEO.
Panchard used his time at the event to present the Alumine Two.Five to attendees, explaining the intricate design process needed to create the speaker. He was followed by Jazz saxophonist Jerome Sabbagh and his trio, who played live renditions of some of the numbers featured on his forthcoming album. Then, the Alumine Two.Five was given time to shine by showcasing a selection of tracks, including one of Sabbagh's new album compositions.
The Alumine Two.Five builds on the concepts behind Stenheim’s very first speaker, the Alumine Two, and applies them to a discreet, floor-standing product designed to deliver greater bass extension and room-filling capability. It stands as the company's entry-level speaker, presenting a passive two-way array that features a single 1" soft dome tweeter and dual 6.5" bass drivers. Additionally, Stenheim says the speaker is highly efficient. That efficiency opens the door to generous amplifier compatibility, including low-power designs.
Priced at $23,500, the Alumine Two.Five can be purchased now.
