Rocky Mountain Audio Fest 2014 Hot Product
The latest -- and smallest floorstanding -- speaker in Nola's Gold series is the Studio Grand Reference Gold ($19,800/pair). Like the other speakers in the series, this compact floorstander uses "exotic" components, including an Alnico magnesium woofer, an Alnico dipole midrange supported by the speaker's. . .
. . .open-baffle design, and a true ribbon tweeter, along with Nordost internal wire. Like its bigger brothers, the Studio Grand Reference Gold sounded supple -- the opposite of hard and exacting -- conveying great midrange presence, treble air and ambience, a very seductive combination. All of this comes in a mid-sized package that will be ideal for smaller rooms, even though the speaker ably filled out a large one in Denver.
