Bert,

Approximately how large are the Orelinos? What drivers did you use in them? Once again I must tell you that they are visually stunning.

Hi Don,

Approximately how large are the Orelinos?

Width is 95cm, height 115cm (top of bass section) and total depth is approximately 60cm.

What drivers did you use in them?

Hi Bert,

If they sound as good as they look (I assume they do) you have a sure fire winner.

Hi all,

I've been lucky enough to hear the Orelino twice already, at Bert's and during the X-fi Audioshow in Veldhoven.

Although the room at the show did have some acoustic issues, especially in the treble region and some low bass resonance (no acoustic treatment was applied), when seated in the right place and with some more peoples in the room, the Orelino did provide its magic and was easily producing the best sound of the show.

In my opinion in normal listening conditions this speaker outperforms almost everything available in the market. It provides full range performance, with transparency and finesse, a three dimensional soundstage, detailed accuracy and dynamics but more importantly in a very musical way. Even in a small room like Bert’s the speaker disappears and all that is left is the recording, very engaging.

I had no experience with open baffle systems, or with horns for that matter, but once you’ve heard the Orelo/Orelino there is simply no way back to a closed system (especially not bass reflex systems), it just sounds distorted and restrained. Bert applied some efficiency techniques like the phase-plug that allowed the performance of the Orelo in a smaller and better looking design.
If I hadn’t almost finished building the Orelo I would seriously consider the Orelino instead, and I’m sure my wife would be happy about that :-)

Highly recommended, congratulations Bert!

I wish the sound was as good as the design looks!

Only at a few spots the sound was more than okay but at most spots it was dissapointing to my ears. Especially when you know how they can perform at home!

At least they were the best looking speakers at the show! :drool:

is it because of the known problems with positioning of open baffles? cancellations?

No, it was just a completely "dead" room likewise when you were talking inside a car. No reflections except for a few nasty ones...

Complete different sound compared to my place or even Peter's place where they are playing now.

It was dissapointing having the experience that is can sound a lot better than there in that room. Still many people did like what they heard though... :wink:
