Every person in the Peak Consult team is a skilled Danish artisan with higher goals to bring you the best loudspeaker possible. The awareness of sound staging, room dimensions and sense of instrument location are high priorities in every product from Peak Consult. The biggest goal is to bring the listener to a "You-Are-There" sensation.
Since 1996 we have kept our priorities straight and brought many enthusiasts nearer to their passion: music.
At Peak Consult, we use only the best technologies and the best of craftsmanship to reach our goals. At Peak Consult, we maintain full control over every aspect of development and production, in own manufacturing facilities.
Each product is tested, matched and given its own unique number. When the registration card has been filled out and send to Peak Consult, it will be stored in our owner's files.
Audio Technology drivers are state-of-art drivers designed by Ejvind Skaaning and Per Skaaning, and made in Stilling, Denmark. Ejvind Skaaning was the guiding force behind several loudspeaker companies in Denmark, among the most prominent are Scan-Speak and Dynaudio corporations, both founded by Mr. Skaaning. Mr. Skaaning was the man !
Peak Consult takes great pride in the high level of performance and finish of our products.
Every speaker from Peak Consult is produced in solid wood and have been oiled and waxed to get the highest finish from a carpenter's hand.
To maintain Peak Consult products in pristine condition, bio-wax is shipped with the speakers so one can maintain the speakers to the highest finish, year by year.
Peak Consult speakers have been thoroughly tested and measured before shipping. Performance will though continue to improve during the first 200 hours of normal use.
Every Peak Consult speaker has been designed for the use of bi wiring technology.
"The Peak Consult Empress is a pretty special loudspeaker. It may not be your cup of tea if you relate to a specific sort of "speaker" sound - the Empress ain't got one of its own. And I've heard from other speakers more extended highs; deeper, tauter bass; and greater SPLs.
What I haven't heard is many speakers that do so little wrong or so much so very right. The key to such rare overachievers is balance.
... Would I buy them if I had $25 grand [*]? Oh, heavens to Betsy, yes. it wasn't love at first sight, but I could listen to the Empress for a lifetime."
- Wes Philips, Stereophile
