Last weekend I visited the Accustic Arts dealer Milan Hanzel in his newly renovated shop in Komarno, Slovakia. The city of Komarno is situated at the Danube river, directly alongside the Hungarian boarder - The distance is less than one hour from Budapest or nearly 100 minutes from Vienna, Austria. Komarom is situated in the Hungarian side of now divided city.
Perfect conditions accompanied my trip: sunny blue sky, warm temperatures and the Mediterranean flair!
In my luggage I carried the Totem Element Metal speakers, Vovox Textura Fortis cables and my favourite tools of Symposium Acoustics (Ultra platforms and Rollerblocks Serie 2+ with G3 superballs in double-stack). As the complete Accustic arts reference electronics is on display there and was tuned already - we had perfect conditions to demonstrate and listen to the Canadian Totem Element Metal speakers.
The listening session started in the evening - before that we went sightseeing in the old city, enjoying the fantastic atmosphere outside. Please look here for additional photos of Komarno downtown. And I start simultaneously with the statement that the Canadian speaker gave an excellent impression.
A wide panorama of music was played - rock, jazz and classics. As a highlight we enjoyed some direct masters of regioanl Jazz concerts - the direct way of Totem and Accustic Arts let you immerse deep in the music with high impact, power and tension. The natural and bright timbre let you forget about the hardware playing. Tonal balance remains on the right emotional side.
