The VELA Bookshelf Speakers

A complex design: high-class lacquered and wooden veneered cabinets, which have a trapezoid shape and are angled rearward.

The design catches eyes but conduces acoustics, too. The sound of VELA shows it´s family background to successful series 400.

But the advantages are distinct. The angling of the cabinet in combination with the new wave-guide of the JET tweeter improves the definition of stereo and multi-channel audio in modern furnishing. But there are more than the obvious changes. For example the optimized drivers are able to reproduce high-energy transients more precisely.
