An art sculpture in you living space.

Superb articulation and detail, superior separation and blend of instruments and spectacular deep, Detailed, full range Bass.

“The music drew me into each performance, recreating each venue right before me, blocking irrelevant analytical thoughts. Now, for the after-effect. Nothing that I listened to later on, through other speakers, seemed satisfying any more.

“What a shock! The magnificent blend of beautiful sound captivated and entranced me from the first note to the last. Timbre — perfect; dynamic — flawless. An astounding sound feast that drained me.

“I suppose one reason to upgrade your speakers could be home decoration. …these Posh represent a set of skillful answers to certain perennial problems. But the music! Whatever your reasons for buying a speaker, if music figures, you can take these, no matter what kind of music you like. Everything we asked the Posh to play was revealed, and with more transparency, detail, expansive and breathing airiness, massive thrust and simultaneous clarity than have heard ever before in this magazine”

The Posh comes in two parts, a top section with an Accuton ceramic midrange and a soft-dome tweeter, and a bottom section with two woofers, each in its tuned enclosure. What’s unusual is that the two sections are totally separate from each other. The top is held up by a sculpted steel frame, and the woofer section slides in underneath, not quite touching it. Eli Gershman has used this configuration before, in his upscale (but not quite this upscale) Black Swans. That’s why each speaker has not four feet but eight feet, each one adjustable. The steel struts hold up the top (midrange-tweeter) section, and of course they don’t touch the low-frequency module. The spikes on the upper section can be adjusted so that the drivers will point right at the listener. That will of course depend on the distance to the listening area. An upscale speaker must be built from upscale parts, and the Posh is exactly that. The enclosures, made of 2.5 cm HDF (high-density fibreboard rather than the usual MDF), are reinforced by 6 mm stainless steel plates and are tapered to reduce the incidence of standing waves. The finish is an attractive, Italian, High End glossy black piano finish, but — as you’d expect from a product of this caliber, — they can be any color you desire..

The connectors, from Furutech (Germany), are larger than most and can be tightened thoroughly with only finger pressure. There is a pair of these connectors on the midrange/high unit, but the bass module has two pairs, connected together internally.

There is no crossover in the lower (bass) module. The top module uses a highest -grade capacitor, a Mundorf MCap Supreme Classic Silver-Gold Oil. It is oil-filled, and, as its name suggests, its stators are made with very pure gold and silver. The crossover also uses a Mundorf resistor, an MResist Supreme. The resistor is in a casting compound, to stabilize it and prevent it from acting like a microphone. Lest you suspect that this might be some voodoo theory, in fact almost any product used in audio reproduction can be a microphone. Connectors and soldered joints are especially apt to be microphonic, and there are plenty of both in a loudspeaker.
