The 2024 Munich High-End Show: Robert Harley on Loudspeakers

Gershman Acoustics had a great showing of the 30th anniversary edition of its Black Swan, which features a separate woofer that fits between the “wings” of the midrange/tweeter module. The woofer enclosure incorporates a bass trap for a smoother bottom end. The $95k speaker sounded superb on a variety of LPs, with the MOC listening room and speakers disappearing into a beautifully rendered soundstage. The tonal balance was very smooth and natural, and bass articulation was excellent while not sacrificing weight and power.
