Peak-Consult


 

Peak Consult was founded in 1996 by Per Kristoffersen. The production started as a consultation for audiophiles who couldn't find what they where looking for in the jungle of loudspeakers. The ideology was to create the best speakers, in sound as well as design.

Multiple loudspeakers have since seen the light of day and many customers worldwide have these state of the art loudspeakers from Peak Consult in their listening room since that time.

Every person in the Peak Consult team is a skilled Danish artisan with the goal to bring you the best loudspeaker possible. The ultimate goal is to bring the listener a "you-are-there" sensation. The awareness of sound staging, room dimensions and sense of instrument location are high priorities in every product from Peak Consult.


Since 1996 they have kept their priorities straight and brought many enthusiasts nearer to their passion: music.


Every product from Peak Consult is designed and built by hand in Denmark. In many ways that is a stamp of quality and a seal of approval in itself.

At Peak Consult they use only the best technologies and the best craftsmanship to reach their goals. They also maintain full control over every aspect of development and production, in their own manufacturing facilities.

Each product is tested, matched and given its own unique number. When the registration card has been filled out and send to Peak Consult, it will be stored in our owner's files.


PEAK CONSULT EL DIABLO

 

Amongst so-called “high-end” loudspeakers, there are some brands actually reaching for higher goals. Peak Consult is one of them, but how is that done?

Countless hours of measurement and critical listening by many audiophile ears have gone into making the finest three-way loudspeaker available. An impedance curve and electrical phase character like that of an electrostatic loudspeaker, the final blend of art and technology have made El Diablo an uncompromising work of art. The state of art loudspeaker has seen the light of day. [show picture, El Diablo]


The multifaceted enclosure is handcrafted in Peak Consult’s own facility by skilled Danish artisans in a 1.5”- 3.0” HDF specially glued sandwich material covered by 1” of solid wood. At several points a resonance suppresser has been used in the construction. Special resonance suppressers have also been milled into the each side panel. Each solid walnut panel has been hand-chosen by skilled Danish artisans.

The designs optimize the off-axis response and minimize any kind of diffraction. In order to eliminate (acoustical) standing waves, there are no parallel front, back, top or bottom panels. The slant of the front panel aligns the phase and timing between the tweeter, midrange and woofer.


The Danish Scan-Speak tweeter is a non-Ferro fluid 1” ring radiator, SD-2 neodymium motor with a non-resonant aluminum chamber. It features a multiple camber with low compression and a machined aluminum faceplate. The tweeter performs effortlessly to sonic extremes and brings the “air” as no dome tweeter before.

The Danish Audiotechnology 5” midrange is hand-built specifically for optimal behavior in the El Diablo’s enclosure. The driver features a cone that has been uniquely shaped for this moving system and a vented magnet system that includes Symmetric Drive, optimizing linear directivity. It performs with matchless sound staging ability and an imaging that is as tight and sharp as a diamond.

The dual Danish Audiotechnology 9” woofers are hand-built and specifically designed for the El Diablo using new and special technology in the moving systems to make them very low-loss drivers. The huge magnets and ventilation systems make the drivers reproduce very tight and extremely low frequencies - second to none.

The El Diablo includes an acoustical second order crossover in the tweeter/midrange section and also a second order crossover in the midrange/bass section. Every component has been chosen for its sonic and musical behavior, with no consideration for cost. The crossover is hardwired with silver soldering and sealed in the bottom of the loudspeaker to avoid microphony and to shield it from electrical and magnetic radiation from rest of the system. For the internal wiring Peak Consult has chosen the very best cable from the American high-end cable company Stereovox, in a dual layer version. The bi-wire terminations are done with the best of the best: WBT platinum signature loudspeaker terminals.


The El Diablo boasts an extremely linear frequency response, on-axis as well as off-axis. This makes it a very accurate loudspeaker in a “real world” environment. The name says it all; the speaker performs and looks second to none. “Nothing given and nothing taken, just pure music.” But clever and unforgiving like an El Diablo.

PEAK CONSULT ZOLTAN

 

The Zoltan is the logical loudspeaker choice for audiophiles whose budget cannot quite encompass the El Diablo. Processing, controlling and assembling of the Zoltan is handled by skilled craftsmen within Peak Consult’s own facility. Countless hours of measurement and critical listening are logged to correlate design theory and practice. The Zoltan’s impedance curve looks more like a purely resistive ribbon than a dynamic loudspeaker, making use with any kind of amplifier easy. The final blend of art and technology have made the Zoltan an uncompromising performer. The Zoltan is a true state of the art loudspeaker, able to recreate music with stunning realism, regardless of whether or not you are using small tubes or a big solid-state amplifier.

The Zoltan employs all of the technological and artistic aspects related in the design and construction of the El Diablo.

 
 
PEAK CONSULT INCOGNITO X

 

Countless hours of measuring and critical listening have already gone into making the InCognito series, so what could be done to make this superior speaker even better?

They made the InCognito X.

The InCognito X uses:

A 1” Scan-Speak tweeter, which is a non-Ferro fluid hand coated silk dome tweeter that includes Symmetric Drive and a magnet system that eliminate phase shift and optimize the linear directivity.

An Audiotechnology 7” midrange that is hand built and specially designed for optimal effect in this enclosure of the InCognito X. The driver features a cone that has been uniquely shaped for this moving system and a vented magnet system that includes Symmetric Drive to optimize the linear directivity.

The InCognito X celebrates the 10 year anniversary of the award-winning InCognito. Unlike that bookshelf loudspeaker, the InCognito X is a floor standing two-way loudspeaker.

The InCognito X boasts an extremely linear frequency response, on-axis as well as off-axis, with tube amplifiers as well as solid state. This makes it a very accurate loudspeaker in a “real world” environment, becoming even more “InCognito” in almost every room, taking the place as the possible best 2-way loudspeaker in the World.

PEAK CONSULT PRINCESS

 

 The Princess floor standing loudspeaker is the ideal solution for a small room requiring high quality playback with satisfying bass response. Taking up less space than most bookshelf loudspeakers and associated stands, the Princess floor standing loudspeaker will reward you with hours of delighful listening!

 

The multifaceted enclosure is handcrafted in our own facilities by Danish artisans in a 1” HDF sandwich material covered by 1” solid wood. The design was made to optimise the off-axis response and to avoid diffraction. In order to minimize acoustical waves, there are no parallel front, back, top or bottom panels. The slant of the front panel corrects the phase and timing between tweeter and woofer.

 

The speaker includes an acoustical second order crossover. Every component has been chosen for its sonic and musical behaviour, with no consideration for cost. The crossover is hardwired with silver solder. The internal wire is an especially elliptical tube silver wire from Stereovox.

 

The Princess boasts an extremely linear frequency response, on-axis as well as of-axis. This makes it a very accurate loudspeaker in a “Real World” environment, becoming “InCognito” in almost every room. The Princess has a performance like a real Princess.
