In my view, you cannot get a more purely musical loudspeaker in this price range than the Treo CT. A true delight.
The Vandersteen Audio speaker lineup continues to evolve as a result of the research & development efforts that delivered the patented carbon-fiber Perfect-Piston drivers used in the flagship Model Seven. Vandersteen's Treo loudspeaker is now available in an optional Treo CT version (Carbon Tweeter). The Treo CT delivers a surprising amount of the air, space and natural purity previously heard only in Vandersteen's top speaker models: the Quatro Wood CT, Model 5A Carbon and the Model Seven.
When all is said and done, there are speakers we’ve all encountered that, however admirable, are more about quantifying information than reproducing a moving, organic musical event. They might sound lively for a spell, but they lack the heartbeat of musicality. It’s a rookie mistake that only years of experience can ameliorate. Vandersteen Audio, however, is an old-guard veteran, and it shows. It takes just one listen to the Treo CT to recognize that you’re in the presence of a speaker that superbly balances these twin essentials, but never loses sight of where its loyalties lie. In my view, you cannot get a more purely musical loudspeaker in this price range than the Treo CT. A true delight.
