Loudspeaker STUDIO 20

Studio 20 is a monitoring studio speaker
that perfectly fits also to a domestic or a home theater installation

Inspired by studio 30's technology, this speaker was born to satisfy customers
looking for a system that can be accommodated in an average sized room.
The design of Studio 20 is based on 3 separate enclosures, that contribute to improve the vibration behavior of each speaker.
Davis boomers with Kevlar Velvet membrane produces articulated, powerful and deep bass,
while massive resin horn brings the mids and high frequencies range creates an amazing realism.

Loudspeaker STUDIO 30

Studio 30 is THE ultimate working equipment for studio monitoring;
power, articulation and terrific accuracy.
We've been designing this loudspeaker considering the responsability of the loudspeaker that is being used in recording and mastering (whose eventual imperfections would be unusefully overcorrected or whose imprecision would drown or hide evident mix flaw.)
Therefore, we've reached a top in matter of precision and balance;
from the finest trebble details, to the most precise bass and telluric sub bass, nothing gets lost.
So...from the intimate ambiances to the actions movies sound track, Studio30 takes on all challenges.

As its performance can fully be appreciated in bigger spaces (minimum around 20m²),
they are the best choice to equip large studios and cinema rooms.

AMPLIFIER "Précision Studio"

Klinger Favre Amplificateur
Klinger Favre Amplificateur


The "Précision studio" amplifier has been mentioned and choosen as a golden diapason 2005 for its extraordinary musical qualities.
The restitution is blowing; Striking realism.
Finest details appear to create a confusingly real stereo image and give a real "live" feeling. In classical recording, all the concert hall features become recognizable. You really get s sense of depth in space; even the most remote sounds can be distinguished, all the tones are held until their very end, until silence.
The delicate medium , the bubtle trebble and the strenght of bass are more than a thrill!
The stabilised power that makes the amplifier independant from any tension variation enables the tiniest sounds not to be covered by the strong ones.
The technological knowledge becomes the best servant for music lovers.

High precision cables

Câbles Klinger Favre
Câble XLR Klinger FavreCâble secteur Klinger Favre
Câble mixte Klinger FavreCâble RCA Klinger Favre

Cables have a determating influence on the sound result of a hi-fi system.
Cables are to be considered as a whole, rather than just as a costumizing prop.
The high precision cables collection is the result of rigorous studies on the composing elements and on their impact onto the subjective musical domain.
Accurate researches in the technology of isolating materials, random contacts within the wires, of capilarity phenomens, magnetic fields interferences and loudspeaker parasites, lead us to develop this cable line.
Our cables are optimized regarding their use, but the common characteritics are:
- Neutrality
- Amazing sound spacialization
- No agressivity
- Very fine timber
- Absolute focus
- Natural articulation and fluidity
- Unusual silence quality
- Ultimate transparency

RCA, XLR or mixed modulation cables are available.

The plugs have been chosen for their exceptionnal musical qualities: RCA Bullet, Multicontact banana plugs, HMS and Venon power plugs.

Loudspeakers cables are designed to be easily modulated from a bi-wiring into a mono-wiring by using embedable plugs.

Exterior isolating shield is made out of a single metalic ribbon that constitutes a hermetic shield against interferences. It also has a protection purpose against accidental crushing.

CD MAX



CD-MAX is a anti-reflect product.
Used to clean up the CD, it cancels the parasite laser diffraction that are responsible for the wrong information the error calculator has to treat. The error calculator of a CD player recreates a signal which is close to the original one, but in a lower resolution; 14 bits instaed of 16 bits. By reducing the errors while reading, CD-MAX gives you a higher rate of 16bits sounds, that's to say the "real" sound, actually contained on the disk.
This phenomene improves the details of the low level sounds, increases the dynamic of transitions, a superior brightness in the bass. It lowers the hardness and respects the timber better, so, generaly speaking, gives more music in the music.


Considering the technological evolution politic of our brand,
the specifications presented on this website are likely to be modified.
