Vandersteen Treo CT
The Treo CT is essentially a passive version of the Quatro CT, sharing a similar driver complement minus the powered bass system. It’s an extremely cost-effective performer finished in an attractive, elegant package and remarkably is still hand made in the USA.
The Treo is a time- and phase-correct full-range loudspeaker. The proprietary transmission-line loaded tweeter and Vandersteen’s Reflection-Free 4.5″ midrange driver break up energy from behind these drivers before they can pass directly back into the room and to the listener’s ears. The 6.5″ Tri-Woven woofer offers superior transient response and definition in the crucial lower-midrange and midbass frequencies, with the bass foundation supplied by the ported, carbon-loaded 8″ woofer with an ultra-long motor assembly.
The crossovers are ultra high-performance designs featuring extreme-quality parts, and individually tuned in an anechoic chamber. Vandersteen’s Minimum Baffle enclosures ensure maximum rigidity, free of time-smearing reflections and diffraction. All of this technology allows the Treos to offer the kind of exceptional resolution, imaging and natural musicality that have made Vandersteens famous.
The Vandersteen Treos are an easy load and can partner well with most any quality power amp or integrated amp, including the Audio Research, Rega, and Linn models here in the store. Treos start at $8400, and have a range of attractive finish options.
