The Jupiter from German manufacturer Duevel is an omnidirectional 2-way-complete range horn and is therefore completely different from usual loudspeaker designs. The idea of this principle is, to emit the sound into the room about a spectrum of 360 degrees as homogeneous as possible. The efficiency is indicated with 92 dB and therefore the Jupiter can be combined with amplifiers with a relative low output.
These loudspeakers originate from the first owner and are finished in a beautiful veneer that has only been used once by the manufacturer for this model. Price: 4.500 euro.

“…..One more thing, the soundstage is extremely stable for off axis listeners. I found myself intently listening while seated to the outside of the right speaker. What a joy compared to the paralyzing effect most speakers have on the listener’s position…
…As my pick for this year’s Most Wanted Component, the Deuvel Jupiter can only be described as a triumph in mechanical engineering and musical performance. Capable of great transparency and resolution while at once rendering colorful and rich complex harmonics, the Jupiter infuses all the sonic elements with air and bloom merely hinted at by most speakers. … Even if you are not in the market for a new speaker, do your self a favor and give the Deuvel Jupiter a listen. You might be glad you did. Greg Petan”
