Capital Audiofest 2023 attendees will get to experience the new/updated Treehaus Audiolab “Phantom of Luxury” Field-Coil Loudspeakers up close and personal.
The “Phantom of Luxury”, pictured in the eye-popping Walnut Cookies finish, are, as you can see, an open baffle dipole design that relies on live-edge wood plinths with a supporting steel frame as baffle.
The driver compliment consists of a Super Aero 10” field coil by Atelier Rullit run full range, sourced from refurbished and rebuilt drivers from Klangfilm or Telefunken that are meticulously hand rebuilt and redesigned in Germany. A Fostex T900A supertweeter (above 14kHz) and custom 15” woofer from Acoustic Elegance (below 100Hz) fill out the frequency range.
The Phantom of Luxury are now offered with Iconoclast Cable and sport Cardas copper binding posts, Neutrik PowerCon to connect to the external Tube-Rectified field coil power supply, and a dial-in adjustment for the Super Tweeter’s level.
The Phantom of Luxury start at $29,000/pair in live-edge Walnut or Elm. Custom unique wood species and finishes are available along with the Iconoclast Cable upgrade.
Here’s the complete press release:
Treehaus Audiolab Introduces “Phantom of Luxury” Updated Flagship Field-Coil Loudspeaker at Capital Audiofest 2023
October 24th, 2023
The Treehaus Audiolab “Phantom of Luxury” field-coil loudspeaker is an open-baffle dipole design utilizing live-edge wood plinths. Natural materials, and their inherent imperfection, are celebrated here as being able to create sound that is real, rather than simply reproduced. This speaker’s heart is the full range driver, a Super Aero 10” field coil by Atelier Rullit. Their foundation rests with Klangfilm and Telefunken speakers. They are meticulously hand rebuilt and redesigned in Germany, “restomodded,” resulting in unparalleled performance. Utilizing old vintage copper for the voice coil and ultralightweight papers for the cones, they are quick, exact, detailed, and pure. They are subtlety augmented by a super-tweeter (above 14K) and a large woofer (below 100hz). This arrangement allows an effortless flow of music, uninhibited by traditional crossover components.
Further updates to the design results in the best Treehaus Audiolab speaker to date. Specifically, transformer attenuation of the Fostex T900A super tweeter enhances tweeter performance and overall impedance matching within the input panel. A new customized 15” woofer from Acoustic Elegance provides low-frequency foundation for any type of music.
Most exciting, Treehaus Audiolab has partnered with Iconoclast Cable for internal speaker wiring. We are proud to be the first speaker company to do so. Offered as an optional upgrade, having Iconoclast Cable for all internal signal connections elevates the sonic performance in all regards.
For Capital Audiofest 2023, Treehaus Audiolab will be debuting to the Press and Public the updated “Phantom of Luxury” loudspeaker with Iconoclast SPTPC internal cabling, in a unique “Walnut Cookies” finish. They will be driven by the Treehaus Audiolab 300B SET Amplifier and Preamplifier. The full suite of Iconoclast Cables (speaker, interconnects, and power) will be on demonstration. We will be in room 812. Plan on staying a while for “just one more song..”
