"···At the end of the decade I got the chance to try Peter Bizlewicz's outstanding Symposium Acoustics Isis Rack, which in its pioneering use of aircraft-aluminum cups and tungsten carbide balls, introduced a new element to resonance control - roller bearings. By using constrained-layer-damped shelves in a beautifully machined aluminum rack, with both the shelves themselves and the struts on which the shelves sit separated from one another by roller bearings, Symposium's Isis did not just turn resonant energy more efficiently into heat; it also seemed to more effectively drain that energy away without feeding it (or select parts of it) back into the items sitting n the shelves. I say this because, in the listening, there was a marked increase in neutrality and transparency when the components were seated on the Symposium stand. It was as if the sonic presentation were "deburred" - little areas of tonal, textural, and dynamic roughness (what I assume were little resonant peaks) were smoothed down into uniformity. The presentation might have been just a touch "politer" dynamically than it was via, oh, the Walker Proscenium rack (although nowhere near as polite as it was with Critical Mass' first stands), but it was also much smoother and more neutral in balance and much more subtly detailed, with absolutely top-notch resolution of very-low-level detail and superior isolation from footfalls. (I still use the Symposium Acoustics Isis rack and recommend it)."

"Prior to the Osiris Stealth Ultimate's arrival, I'd expected that it would improve the sound of my system more than my Standard Symposium had -- I just wasn't prepared for the degree of improvement...The Osiris Stealth Ultimate makes fools of audiophiles (like me) who continually upgrade components in search of better performance, never knowing what those components are capable of. Sonically and aesthetically, it takes a back seat to no competitor I have heard or seen, regardless of cost..."

Venture Loudspeakers

Xtreme

Xtreme

Performance Above and Beyond

The Xtremes are impressively the largest speakers of the Ultimate Series.They are equipped with 13 Venture drivers, consisting of one 2”dynamic AGC tweeter, two 5”CFGC midrange drivers, four 7” CFGC underhung midrange drivers and six 9” CFGC bass drivers on the side panels. The concept of mounting the 9” bass drivers on the side panels ensures that there is superb coherence in the very low bass registers that eliminates the necessity of separate bass towers. Bass towers bring the complications of locating two more speakers in the listening room to achieve both phase continuity and eliminating bass reflection peaks and valleys at the listening position. Thus, the Xtremes can produce extremely powerful and well-detailed bass and has excellent definition with clearly defined transients and details.

Ultimate

Star of the Ultimate Series

The Ultimate speaker is a Star because it combines outstanding performance with a reasonable price tag. The Star uses all Abaca based graphite composite drivers (AGC) with the elegant C cabinet shape and a new crossover design. The result is a speaker that is pitch perfect over the whole bandwidth with incredibly resolved tonal structures. The sound stage is large with a seemingly nonexistent noise floor and tightly focused images that can stand completely alone without any hint of inter-modulation between them. The three Graphite Composite woofers utilize a newly designed voice coil that is responsible for bass that is powerful, very well resolved and reaches down to subterranean levels. The whole combination of the 3 Abaca Graphite drivers delivers a rich natural sound that is coherent and beautifully believable
