Finnish brand Penaudio’s new Alba Signature is a modernized version of their first Alba back in the beginning of the 2000s.

The new speaker features Penaudio’s trademark plywood veneer design but has a more rigid structure for better clarity in sound.

Crossover And Drivers

There is a new cross-over and the tweeter is a Seas Excel 29 mm textile dome tweeter, the one used in the Penaudio Signature-line. The Midrange/woofer driver is also new, a 22 cm (8 inch) Excel driver designed especially for Penaudio by Seas.

Designed for Valve/Tube Amps

Penaudio made the Alba Signature their first loudspeaker that would be easily connected in any tube or valve amplifier, so it has a really smooth impedance curve that won`t drop below 8 Ohms at any time. Almost all the listening during design was done through tubes.

Alba Signature is also equipped with the latest technology WBT Nextgen 0705Ag silver connectors and is available in  Birch,  Black Ash,  Black Piano,  Karelian Birch,  Oak,  White Piano and  Zebrano finishes.
