Specifications provide for continuity, but difficult changes that are sometimes unavoidable. Speakers are usually not very adaptable. Grows the living area, for example, with a change of location the formerly sovereign gambling compact sounds suddenly thin and karg. Or the user discovered his love for tube amps – in the course of time and must identify Watts hunger of his transducer spoil him the pleasure.

Hardly a speaker is prepared to such changes. Compact can be only rarely in standing speakers, also a customised component activation is intended only for very few boxes models from the factory already. An exception is the credo reference by Phonar from northern Germany, more precisely: from the small town of tarp, a few kilometres south of Flensburg. There lives and works a kind of person who likes to do his homework for this all the more thoroughly hate big words.

This care is to see reference at all corners and edges in the credo and feel. The surfaces and the mechanical components are so perfectly crafted as you can ask it of a product “Made in Germany”.

With 1.11 meters not excessively large sound furniture consists of a compact shell called Primus and an optional subwoofer unit, called Optimus trading. Linked via rubber dampers, they form the top model by Phonar.

With the optional bass module, the supplied plug to the closure of the bass reflex tube of the compact box and the location filter integrated in the Terminal for high-frequency adjustment, the credo system is sonically much more flexible than many competitors. Partial activation of the bass through an electronic unit developed specifically for this purpose brings more leeway.

The Division keeps that vibration of the bass unit affect the compact speaker in its sound development. And it creates the precondition for modular operation. The desire grows for greater bass depth and sovereignty, the bass columns simply imputed.

The transmission range of the upper part is gently cut in this case. This increases the resistance and prevents a too-low slump of the impedance. As well, the Primus closes the reflex opening; This is to prevent a too powerful bass.

Subwoofer into the socket

An external filter and amplifier unit for the bass part enables more sound increases. This unnamed unit can compensate for sound changes by the way due to space. Also makes the bass level variable and relieved as the main amplifier that must drive only the upper part. More about the electronics in the box on the following page. That Phonar does not manufacture its chassis and switch modules, is located on the manageable size of the owner-managed company, which holds just 15 employees in wage and bread.

The northern lights do as far as their sources, not secrecy. The Danish Deluxe provider Scan-Speak provides the chassis. It’s components from the distinguished illuminator series.

The Kerpen specialist Internet technology provides the crossover components. According to high quality and power-potent filters are fitted; the station wagon they were designed with computer help and are sometimes quite complex.

Chassis at its very best

The sinfully expensive chassis are designed for maximum signal integrity. The fabric dome tweeter uses a magnetic system of several small neodymium disc that allow a fully symmetrical movement of the voice coil.

The low-midrange driver, also neodymium driven, are under suspension systems, which gap is much longer than the changing height of the voice coil. The lower number of turns will cost some efficiency; under these conditions the swing system even at extreme excursions but finds an absolutely linear magnetic field.

This cleanliness is confirmed in the measurements and in the listening test. To elicit a harsh tone Primus and Optimus, is almost impossible. The enormous purity and softness reminiscent of speakers from Dynaudio or Thiel, who are internationally known.

The simple pace can only not exuberant alive Act the two-parter. However, there are often certain harmonic distortion components and characteristics in the frequency response, making a sound subjectively “fast”. Boxes that forgo such antics – the combination includes clearly – that need sometimes longer to unfold their charms.

Who takes the time to the settling, is rewarded with a beautifully balanced sound image, that holds a great wealth of colours – even if it is levied not every casual snapping right Minister.

Primus already generates a very full, tend to be warm alone and stressed stress free sound impression, usual, lacking the like very good compact speaker to nothing – except some substance in the deep bass and imperturbability in complex sounds or high volume.

The bass units enhance the sovereignty primarily at low frequencies, indirectly but in all situations. The spatial Imaging gaining plasticity, even with small ensembles or audiobooks that are controlled in very restrained in the basses. Users with larger rooms should get with Optimus or for later cover in the eye, what is Yes, the appeal of the modular design.

Conclusion

Phonar made a very dignified-sounding product on the legs with its modular system, whose extended deserves highest appreciation.
