Avantgarde Acoustic - DUO MEZZO

DUO MEZZO

Not following the easy road, but the proper one. In pursuit of a goal that only few will ever be able to reach: horn technology from bass to high range! And the DUO MEZZO reaches it easily and implicitly, even a brief look at it will directly tell. The visual result is demonstrative, agreed. But the MEZZO's sound stage and musical authority is equally so! We welcome you to the fascinating world of full-range horn loudspeakers.

Purity meets Performance

The question will come. At the latest at the sight of a DUO GROSSO in "Tourmaline Vivid Black". Or a TRIO CLASSICO with BASSHORN. Perhaps also when reading enthusiastic expressions from customers and experts. What's so special about Avantgarde Acoustic?
