Acoustics Waltz Grand Loudspeaker
The waltz has been a runaway hit for
over two hundred years and is still heard in every corner of Vienna.
So too, the Waltz Grand is an extraordinarily popular speaker and can
be used virtually anywhere in any sound room.
The remarkable Vienna Acoustics cabinetry houses a wealth of technology
that allows these slim speakers to provide a rich tonal balance with
surprising dynamics and astonishing detail. Serving equally well in
any position in either two or multi-channel systems, the angled cabinet
and mounting bracket provide incredible flexibility when installing
in a horizontal or vertical orientation.
Handcrafted enclosures in beautiful wood finishes define the Vienna

The new 6 midrange driver benefits
from a reformulation of Vienna Acoustics proprietary XPP cone
material. Combining TPX, the unique thermoplastic used in all XPP cones,
with three polypropylene based synthetics achieves maximum inner damping,
ultra-low mass, and precise control over cone density and rigidity.
Dubbed X3P (X3P because of the three additional polymers in its composition)
this new cone material allows the driver to provide an extraordinarily
wide bandwidth, while= possessing a level of inner detail, quietness,
and control that is truly remarkable. The mid-bass drivers benefit from
a new inverted rubber surround design that constitutes a breakthrough
in no loss damping of cone edge resonances.
As with all Vienna Acoustics loudspeakers, a handcoated silk dome tweeter
was specifically designed, featuring a specially developed ferrofluid
damping system in combination with a super-light six ohm voice coil,
for superior resolution of high frequency extremes while achieving perfect
midrange warmth and clarity.
The striking angles of the cabinet provide more than just a beautiful
appearance, as they allow for unparalleled placement flexibility in
the focusing of the sound field, either to the right, left, or even
center, depending on the enclosures vertical or horizontal orientation.
The included hardware and bracket offer up to eight different possible
mounting positions. Maple and Cherry finishes join a revised Rosewood,
applied to the highest of standards using the state-of-the-art veneer-wrapping
technology for the front and rear baffles first pioneered on the Classic
series. A true Piano Black lacquer is now available, the quality of
which will permit inclusion into any living room as it mirrors its surroundings.
The Waltz Grand is 100 % shielded.
The angled walls of the cabinet provide lots of mounting placement options:
8 positions for OnWall application: 4 x 90 degrees, and in each of the
4 placements the possibility to angle Waltz Grand towards - or off -
the listener, or parallel to the wall, plus a Stand Alone application
for placing e.g. on top of a TV or in a bookshelf.
WALTZ has been developed together with all other Vienna Acoustics models
to match perfectly in phase and frequency correspondence, for harmonic
add to any existing Vienna Acoustics system.
Innovative and unique grilles feature an aluminum frame that incorporates
an integral V-shaped phase diffuser to control dispersion so that they
can be left on for all but the most critical listening without an adverse
influence on performance. In fact, it can be used as an additional tuning
device for the audio enthusiast, benefiting soundstage presentation
both in depth and stereo imaging. As an additional benefit, the V-shaped
groove running the length of the middle of the grille results in a more
elegant appearance for the speaker.
