PLK — WAGNER

We present to your attention a professional two-way speaker system, model Wagner.

Impeccable workmanship, high quality components and the best acoustic solutions satisfy even the most sophisticated listeners. Appearance of the Wagner system sets a special atmosphere of nobility and solidity, playing a decent party in any of the most refined interior, emphasizing the high status of their owner.

The principle of sound from one setup implemented in the system creates for the listener the only true sound architecture: having heard it once, it is no longer possible to be content with something else.

DRIVE UNITS

The fifteen-inch speaker easily saturates the area with sound, revealing all the emotions of a piece of music, preserving the delicacy of presentation and accurately conveying the scale of a composition. The high-frequency driver, located in the center of the main speaker, thanks to a specially developed frequency filter, harmoniously merges with the main speaker, which gives the sound absolute wholeness and realism.

Internal structure of the Wagner system developed by our engineers, without exaggeration, represents a unique acoustic instrument. During its development we succeeded to achieve absolute neutrality of its sounding, imported with inexpressible freedom and lightness of sound.

Uncompromising approach of our experts in the choice of acoustic solutions allowed to create the sound that can be enjoyed for hours. The main advantage of the Wagner system is the emotions, joy and happiness that they carry, keeping their owners in the world of music for hours.

REVIEWS:

We express our deep gratitude and appreciation to all of you who took part in the presentation listening of the Wagner system and provided their reviews.

PANOV EVGENII (“REPORTAGE” Band)

In my view a distinctive feature of this sound system is solidity and I would even say thoroughbred sound. I spend much time at work in my studio and my ear got used to dry and accurate sound of professional studio monitors. Household acousticsas a rule hasaspecific color. Therefore, to be honest, I did not expect to hear such an accurate, “uncolored” sound. Of course, there are differences from the studio monitors sounding but Wagnermakes you believe in purity of its sound from the very first moment.

Even if you are accustomed to sounding of the music you know, this system will open it even more deeply, making the smallest overtones audible that it seems – if you reach your hand out — you would touch the performer. Due to the large dynamic, with its “breath” the system reminded me of Tannoy Westminster. It has the same strong and expressive sound field. At this, there are differences in sound transmission. Wagner sounding seemed to be more transparent, while Tannoy accentuates the lower frequency a bit harder. And yet I would listen to Wagners due to more comfortable and unfatiguing sounding.I would like to note that PLK managed to find the line between brightness and delicacy of sound delivery: they created truly noble sounding. Thank you for the opportunity to get acquainted with such a system.

SAFRONOV SERGEY, a sound producer

Before listening, I was somewhat skeptical, because I was used to a completely different, concert sound. This is a large-scale sound with powerful pressure that I encounter at work every day.

And I was not very enthusiastic about home appliances. However, from the very first seconds of its sounding of the track I prepared it came to be understood that the big speaker did its job, and did it perfectly. For their size the speakers worked very quickly. The entire frequency range was correct. I could not catch any sounds or buzz from the bodies at all.

The system confidently copes while working at high volume. The sound is lively and emotional, but what is the most important, it is of the right scale and is transferred with good pressure. High sensitivity of the speakers allows you to listen to melody even with a ten-watt tube amplifier, which I also have been demonstrated. I cannot say for sure that I have changed my mind about home acoustics, but… Wagner is something of some other kind…

EXPERT OPINION

Subject of examination: PLK WAGNER speaker (two identical items).

Creation time: years 2018-2019, Russia

Material and technique: high-quality plywood,

ash and oak veneer, lathe work.

Dimensions: 163.0 x 77.0 x 64.0 cm.

Owner: PLK

The design presented for examination is made in full accordance with the historical canons of furniture production and technical characteristic requirements. The appearance declares extraordinary artistic approach. Traditions of the world furniture art with laconic hint of the late Victorian period are not violated here, harmoniously woven into the texture of perception of the modern connoisseur of art. Strict form of the acoustic design is adorned with decorative elements – a carved vignette on the top and elegant machined belts enlivening massiveness of the appearance.

Decorative natural oak veneer, solid oak and ash enhance the warmth and authenticity of the design making it a piece of furniture. It enters logically the overall style of the residential interior design corresponding to the stylistic content. In this technical item, one can discern the high aesthetic traditions of somewhere prim but elegant style of British furniture. The acoustic system is an excellent pleasant example of the inheritance of classical traditions and the delicate esthesia of inspired modernity.

After listening to the PLK Wagner system we would like to point out a number of either positive and negative points:
For advantages, we would like to accentuate on fairly fast focused bass without a hint of «reflex slur», that is quite a difficult task taking into account such dimensions of the speaker and the whole cabinets. These features of the low-frequency part of the spectrum have a positive effect in conditions of a non-ideal listening room. The cabinet design as a whole does not give any audible artifacts and overtones.
Besides, as an absolute advantage, the choice of coaxial design of the two-way system should be noted. This allows you to get a fairly flat phase response in the entire range of work. We liked the good, clear and fast testing of transients, which, when using a fast and neutral studio amplifier, makes the system close in its sound to the studio far-field monitoring systems.
In general, the system is critical to the acoustic design of the room and its location in it. It should be understood that the system of such dimensions and design will not sound correct in the rooms with low ceilings and an area of ​​less than 30 square meters. Also, if the room is not sufficiently prepared, such features as absence of clear phantom center and significant loss of clarity of the sound stage may manifest themselves while the listener is moving around the room.
It should be noted that after listening to the system with several amplifiers, their significant influence on the character of the whole system sound was found out. The system requires careful choice of the amplifier for the aesthetics and needs of a particular listener.

It became an interest to listen to the system as soon as I have heard of it. I immediately agreed to take part in the presentation. Sounding of the large speakers over-delivered on my expectations. I brought my favorite playlist with me which had some scenes of not easy playback for acoustics. Wagner did it perfectly however. Sounding of the speakers was deep, reproducing all the slightest shades very accurately. Clear bass, soft and expressive midrange frequencies and openly breathing treble. The sound worthy of note!
The speakers are put in sturdily constructed heavy cabinets “for a full due” as the saying goes, as the final perfect touch of masters.
