Gingko Audio Sextet Introduced at Capital Audiofest to Rave Reviews

The Gingko Audio Sextet was introduced at the Capital Audiofest in Rockville, Maryland, in November 2019. Here are some first impressions from show attendees:

“This was a masterful demo; one that clearly demonstrated why you need the extension provided by a full range speaker or a well-mated satellite/subwoofer system. It is not just deeper, more pitch defined, impactful bass, but the addition of the bloom and body, the more correct voicing, and the expansive space and dimensionality that it affords.”

Greg Weaver of Enjoy The Music

“There were two rooms running Ginko speakers and both systems were very good sounding. One was a $10,000 system running in one of the big rooms which sounded beautifully balanced, natural, and relaxed, without sounding lifeless. The small stand-mounted speaker in another room (I think it was $3,000) sounded very good too-very well balanced and natural sounding.”

— Larryi on Steve Hoffman Forum

“Gingko Audio had for me, the most realistic soundstage with their Sextet speakers that include 2 monitor speakers and 4 subs in a swarm arrangement. Excellent imaging, and the bass was spot on.”

— Rusty on Audio Circle

“Gingko audio had small speakers in a small room and bigger speakers in a big room. I only spent a small amount of time in each room, but they both accomplished the naturalness and dimensionality that hits me hardest when it’s there and leaves me least engaged when it’s not.”

Introducing Our Sextet Modular Speaker System

Sextet Speaker System - All Modules

Gingko Audio is proud to introduce the Sextet™ Modular Speaker System at the Capital Audiofest in Rockville, Maryland, on November 1-3, 2019. We will feature it in the Monroe room on the third floor.

The Sextet is a collaborative effort that builds upon the Tubulous™ technology from Gingko Audio, the Swarm™ from AudioKinesis, and unique cabinet construction from Salk Sound.

Components

The Sextet can be configured to heighten the listener’s experience with a richer, fuller sound, with up to six components – monitor speakers, a variety of matching subwoofers, and stands:

  • The Monitor Speakers are built on Gingko Audio’s Tubulous™ technology and experience with the ClaraVu™ and Clarissa LE™ speakers.
  • Built on AudioKinesis’s Swarm Subwoofer System, the Powered Subwoofers incorporate a built-in amplifier and digital crossover to match the Sextet Monitors.
  • The Primary and Outboard Passive Subwoofers (up to four units) can be driven by an external sub amplifier in various configurations to suit the room’s acoustics.
  • The Dedicated Stands are designed for the Sextet Monitors and can be weighted with sand or lead shots for added stability and vibration control.

All Sextet subs and stands incorporate Gingko Audio’s patented ARCH Acoustic Resonance Clarifiers for vibration control and leveling on all kinds of floors.

Gingko Audio Proudly Introduces Clarissa LE

Clarissa LE Speaker

The Clarissa LE speakers were premiered at AXPONA in April 2019 to universal praises. We drove them using three different integrated amplifiers: A 100-watt Class D Cyrus One HD from the UK, an 8-watt tube TRV-A300XR from Triode Corp of Japan, and a 150-watt solid-state Majestic from Wells Audio in California. An international lineup of digital and analog sources from Poland, Austria, Mexico, and the USA was also presented. Cables were from Danacable, racks were from Pangea, and vibration control devices were from Gingko Audio.

Here is a video report by AV Showrooms of the demo:

The Clarissa LE are available for order immediately, with a typical lead time of 3 weeks. They are reasonably priced at $1500 each, with dedicated stands priced at $600 a pair. Two finishes are available, gloss piano black and matte red cherry.
