The new generation of PIEGA Premium loudspeakers from Switzerland feature the companies new LDR 3056 high-range ribbon tweeter in it’s top of the range model.

Kurt Scheuch’s team of developers at PIEGA have created a new slim, range featuring softly curving aluminium cabinets and ribbon tweeters.

The new Premium 701 (second picture), 501 and 301 (first picture) PIEGA speakers are the technical and visual continuation of one of the Swiss manufacturers most successful speaker concepts. To refine their appearance, designer Stephan Hürlemann has fitted the front covers flush into the C-shaped cabinet profile with a polished aluminium finish to the cabinets.

While the two smaller models use the PIEGA LDR 2642 MKII tweeters, the Premium 701 flagship range is the first model equipped with the new LDR 3056 ribbon tweeters. This tweeter system benefits from all important insights gained during the development of the PIEGA Line Source Driver and the second-generation PIEGA Coax System. Its thin membrane has a newly developed suspension and is controlled by mass-free damping. It also features an optimised magnet system, new foil layout and a massive aluminium front panel.

Its mid-range speakers have also undergone improvements. They are calibrated to the new cabinet and ribbon tweeters. The MDS cone drivers are designed for especially long-stroke motions. The aluminium cabinets have been improved further and play an important role in the bass rendition of the new Premium models. Compared to the previous speakers, they are 30 per cent more rigid. Their rounded shape prevents the occurrence of disturbing standing waves inside the cabinet. All models of the Premium series are available in three versions: silver anodised, white varnish with a silver cover, black anodised with a black cover.

Premium 701

The Premium 701 is barely larger than its smaller sister model, the 501. It also uses a 2.5-way system. Two 140 mm MDS converters cater for the bass, one of the two also handles mid-tone emission. The newly developed LDR 3056 ribbon, used here for the very first time, produces the high tones.

Premium 501

This slim column loudspeaker, which is only 16 cm wide and about one metre tall features two long-stroke 120 mm MDS low mid-range drivers and LDR 2642 MKII ribbon.

Premium 301

The Premium 301 is a compact loudspeaker with a baffle about the size of an A4 sheet. Behind the removable fabric cover, a 140 mm MDS low mid-range driver and the LDR 2642 MKII ribbon tweeter ensure transmission of all frequencies from 39 to 50 kHz.
