Goldmund Melos is the “budget model”

The Swiss Goldmund brand is known for crafting incredibly beautiful hi-fi. But the asking price? Yikes!

You need more than just a generous bank account (preferably in a discreet Swiss bank) to buy Goldmund’s ultra high-end products. The price is usually well over a hundred thousand euros. Per part! For example, the extreme active floor-standing speakers Goldmund Gaia, which cost 500. 000 euros for a pair!

2500 watts and an insane frequency range.

In this context, it’s almost like a compromise when Godmund launches the Melos compact speaker. The small passive speakers are “only” 29,000 euros for a set. Pocket change!

What you for that kind of money is a two-way bass reflex speaker with 7″ bass/midrange and 1″ dome tweeter. The frequency range is specified as 43 Hz – 25,000 Hz (-6dB). Which seems pretty standard for a compact bookshelf speaker. But Goldmund assures that the speakers provide “an enchanting and vibrant acoustic scene that surrounds the listener in a symphony of unprecedented realism.

In true Goldmund tradition, the cabinet is made of out aluminum and weighs 20 kg. Which is probably the very least you can expect.
