High-End Hi-Fi
Handmade in Switzerland

EV 900 Ref - Revie by D. Blumenstein

There was no straining with these speakers. In a word, they were effortless, never managing to have me tire from listening to them. I was amazed at how they can sound so big given their physical dimensions.

Show report: Part Time Audiophile

credo-florida-audio-part-time-audiophile

„It’s a shame my Florida Audio Expo weekend was wrapping up here, as this was one of my favourite sounding exhibit rooms of the show. I would have stayed longer and brought along a few industry friends to gloat about what I had found.

Everything you look for in terms of bandwidth extension and smoothness was expertly delivered by the system. Tonality was rich with life. The presentation in terms of the scale-of-things seemed effortless. I credit that last part to power.

Odd to me, was that at no point — unlike many other rooms at audio shows — did the room seem congested or overloaded. That my friends is a rare event at audio shows. Of course the manufacturers want to show the big stuff, but in small hotel rooms, it’s usually the stand-mount monitors that often deliver more fitting (and impressive) display. The times I can count where a large speaker played the small room deftly can probably fit on one hand.“

Miles B. Astor - VPI dealer event

VPI was hosting their annual dealer get together this weekend and Mat kindly extended an invitation to drop by on the final day. Several interesting systems were on display including the big, line array Creedo speakers from Switzerland.

The BIG system was headlined by the Creedo speakers from Switzerland and capably supported by Meitner Electronics (including Ed’s 1 kW, $85k monoblocks), VPI's new, super direct drive Vanquish table with 14-inch arm and vdh Crimson cartridge plus power supply and phonostage and Nordost cabling. The tonearm’s internal wiring runs uninterrupted from the cartridge pins to a LEMO connector into the phonostage.

This is the best I've heard these Swiss speakers and light years better than their presentations at Axpona last year. Jarre's Equinoxe was superbly rendered and was just a musical kaleidoscope painted on a huge three dimensional canvas . Fast, transparent and clean characterize these speakers. There was simply no exaggeration with either the violin or piano on Brahm's Sonata #1. Voices floated in the air on the AudioNautes reissue of the Proprius recording Now the Green Blade Riseth. The low end demonstrated some real startle factor and kick ass quality on the Ed Graham D2D disc.

CAF 2019: AudioShield Room, a Musical Experience

theaudiobeatnik

„The sound of this system was a sonic surprise to me. I have never been a fan of speakers with long lines of tweeters and drivers, but the Credo Audio Switzerland speakers paired with all of the equipment mentioned above had good tone, great transparency, incredible scale, and an immersive soundstage. It was a truly musical and emotional experience listening to this system.“Read more...

Very impressive Credo Cinema LTM speakers- HiFi Advice.com

Very impressive Credo Cinema LTM speakers in the van den Hul room. Although they were playing at background music levels only and I’ve not done any critical listening in this room, their natural and unforced delivery stood out from the sometimes very shouty presentations elsewhere on the show.

Audioholics about - The Cinema LTMs

audioholics-credo-cinema-ltm-axpona

The Cinema LTMs resemble their namesake in that, like the movies, these are larger than life. And at $170k per pair, so is their price tag. These behemoths are meant for providing high-fidelity for a large room, and a cue toward that end is their line-array design.

Happily, extremely listenable and well-balanced - Stereophile.com

Here, chatting was minimal, perhaps simply because the sound was so good. I really enjoyed how mellow the sax sounded, and how drums were rendered with truthfulness without becoming clattery.

Part of the responsibility for the space's success falls at the feet of the new Swiss-made Credo Cinema LTM loudspeakers.

Credo Audio Switzerland - HIGH-END 2018 Press Release

For Immediate Press Release

HE18_Visitus1

As in previous years we will demonstrate our products in room Atrium 4.2 F231f.

A special edition of our
EV Reference ONE loudspeaker, that had its premier in 2017 also in Munich, will play in our room. Michael Kraske developed this model around the idea of a wide-band, closed cabinet speaker. Knowing about the tonal balance and richness that a full-range speaker can reproduce, not willing to accept the lack of bass and presence of high percentage of distortion.

So the paper-cone, symmetrical drive mid-woofer is accompanied by a 1“ tweeter and 12“ long-throw subwoofer. The mid-woofers slices-cone prevents effectively cone breakups, so it is playing from 50Hz and blending over gently to the tweeter creating
a speaker with full-range characteristic - but with punchy bass down to 25 Hz and extended treble smooth as silk. As always with Credo Audio speakers, we achieved linear impedance and a high efficiency (of 87.6 dB), making it an easy load for amplifiers.

An other highlight in our room will be the
VPI Avenger reference turntable, featuring a brand new Fatboy (Gimbal) tonearm, as well as the unipivot JMW 3D arms. These will be equipped with Van den Hul Colibri Master Signature“ and The Crimson XGWcartridges. Completed is the duo with a KISEKI Purple Heart N.S.
