Admittedly, it's not for every product, since some are closer in price.
For example, when it gets to the Shindo loudpseakers, those are tough for me to take on trade up toward another model of Shindo Loudspeaker.. nor would you want to anyway, for there is no reason.

Is my thinking correct? Shindo makes one line of speakers. That line is Latour speakers. They are offered in both 15" and 12" woofer size. Latour

I believe you can buy the Latour in both Alnico and Field Coil driver arrangements. The Field Coil is the premium level Speaker. I'm sure Matt will correct me if I'm mistaken.

Will someone here upgrade to the new ALLEGRO (very) limited edition preamplifier with full-NOS components inside?



Matt, not sure if there is ever any chance to get one in 230V (purchased through you)?

Yes, correct. Additionally, there are 'Petite' Latour models for smaller listening rooms - they contain smaller horns with different dispersion characteristics, and 12" woofers. Also available in Alnico or Field Coil.

Also, Shindo produces the 604 series, which are also available in the Petite cabinet and a larger 'Latour' sized cabinet (yep, these are available in Alnico and Field Coil.) I just came home from an out of state installation involving these speakers - check my website for a post soon about them..

Matt, am I correct in assuming Shindo makes 4 Petite models? 2 Alnico and 2 Field Coil.

What is the Petite's dimension?

Will check your site soon.

I would be interested to learn about the Petite's dimensons as well. Meanwhile, I came across these photos of the Petite Letours that I thought might be of interest.

Yes, the Petite Latour and Petite 604 are each available in Alnico and Field Coil - each one is a different size, due to the size of the 15" woofer used in the 604 version. Petite Latour uses 12" woofer.

The Petite Alnico Latours starts at $29.9k pr., at this time. Rough dimensions, offhand, are approximately 17+"w x 40+"h x 17+"d
