The new generation of PIEGA Premium speakers boasts a fantastic quality of sound – thanks to its new LDR 3056 high-range ribbon tweeter.

The new Premium 701, 501 and 301 PIEGA speakers constitute the technical and visual continuation of one of the most successful speaker concepts produced by the Swiss manufacturer. To refine their appearance, Swiss designer Stephan Hürlemann has fitted the front covers flush into the C-shaped cabinet profile. The polished aluminium finish is also rather interesting.

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. The system has an extremely high degree of efficiency, greater bandwidth and linearity and an impressive resolution says the company’s recent press release. 

Compared to the previous speakers, they are 30 percent more rigid. Their rounded shape prevents the occurrence of  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. 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 extremely slim column loudspeaker, which is only 16 cm wide and about one metre tall. The 501 uses 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, there is a 140 mm MDS low mid-range driver and the LDR 2642 MKII ribbon tweeter.
