Hope there will be some measurements on their website soon, also to be able to compare them better with the S400 MKII.
Agreed. Buchardt used to publish Spinoramas for their previous models (S400 MkI, A500/700), but did not for their latest releases (S400 MkII, A500 Signature, P300). If ever, you have something for us, @Mads Buchardt.;)

Why do they only mention the in-room frequency response. That is such a useless specification. Guess it will do around 50hz at -3dB?

Why can’t they get rid of these screws in the speaker units? Would look much better.
AFAIC, having owned three pairs of Buchardt, I'm really OK with the apparent screws. They make sense regarding modularity/repeatability. On my A500 Signature, these are even more prominent, but I consider that they are part of the overall industrial design.

Interesting how the more expensive speaker has more "sober" colors and the cheaper one more "fun" colors. Do they consider it a "lifestyle" product or what?

Anyway, nice release. I just wish Buchardt could lend more speakers and amp for Amir to review and measure.

That fact that buchardt can do it at the current price, shipped around the world, is pretty astounding.

A 2900hz crossover to a 6" woofer. Isn't that going to be beaming quite a lot at that point?
But so does the tweeter in such deep and wide waveguide, am sure the crossover point was selected according to that (directivity matching).

LOL. If you think shipping Internet Direct $1500 passive bookshelves from Denmark is astounding, wait until you hear how much a pair of $300 Polks or Elac's costs to build and ship from China, or how much your local retailer makes on that $300 sale.

LOL, obviously you are not doing a right comparison. The polk or elac you buy are from retailers or internet base companies, not direct from China. Businesses do their logistics in a bulk over sea freight. If that item is bought in US and ship to Denmark via air it will cost as much as the item itself or more.

15mm is a Little Bit more than a newspaper. I would never Design a loudspeaker cabinet with such thin elements. This speaker will jump to the back if you turn up the volume
