Arslab Stereo One and Stereo Two: Speakers made for thoughtful and emotional listening

Arslab Stereo One

Arslab has introduced two acoustic models in the new Stereo series: Stereo One shelf units and Stereo Two floor standing speakers. According to the company, the new items are “a good tool for those who like thoughtful and emotional listening.”

Visually, the speakers look quite classic: MDF enclosures decorated with a black ash vinyl film, black radiators and their flanges. The 22mm silk dome tweeter is recessed into a small waveguide.

Long-stroke midrange / woofers with a diameter of 168 mm are made of paper pulp using the technology of cold pressing – according to the developers, this “provides the created sound with purity and clarity, even at very high volumes.”

However, Arslab paid special attention to the insides of the acoustics. The body is reinforced from the inside with struts and corner blocks for increased rigidity. The crossover is assembled by a hinged mounting method on Jantzen coils made using the “sintering” technology, Audiocore non-inductive polypropylene capacitors, Audicore non-inductive bifilar winding resistors, created specifically for use in audio equipment, as well as Mundorf high-capacity electrolytic capacitors.

Basically, the floor-standing Stereo Two is a stretched-out Stereo One with one additional midrange / woofer. Both models operate in two-way mode, but differ in the crossover frequency: for stand speakers it is 2 300 Hz, and for floor speakers it is 2 100 Hz.

At the same time, the range of reproducible frequencies for both new products is the same: from 55 Hz to 22 kHz (and 60 Hz – 20 kHz with unevenness of ± 3 dB). The sensitivity of the floor-standing speakers is slightly higher: 88 dB versus 86 dB. But they also require more power for themselves: 50–125 W, and not 25–75 W, like shelf units. The kit also includes protective grilles that are attached to the pins.
