The Avantgarde Trio Classico speakers certainly look the goods, and casting an eye over the specs I’m certain they sound the goods too. Well, the specs and all the awards the speakers have won over the past year or so.

The Trio Classico is a 3-way spherical horn set-up, comprising a 38 inch low–midrange horn, 23 inch midrange horn, and a 7 inch horn.

These three horns, and associated drivers, are placed into a solid cast aluminium base frame. In addition to the three horns in offset positions, the horns can also be arranged in a straight line. The horns are attached to the frame by a circular housing tubes, backed by solid cast aluminium covers.
