Chasing Waterfalls: Victoria EVO

Posted on April 10, 2008 Under Design

Normally when we crank up our stereo to eleven, it’s our precious glass windows and not our eardrums that we worry about shattering. However, since we took a gander at the Victoria EVO, the new flagship clear-glass loudspeaker from Waterfall Audio, we’ve began to rethink our stance on the durability of glass and our of eardrums when it comes to withstanding blasts of anthemic rock ‘n’ roll. Named for Victoria Falls in Africa, one of the eight natural wonders of the world, these eye catching 40″x 10″ towers of cascading sound are individually hand crafted and designed with sophisticated glass-cutting machinery, that when coupled with Waterfall’s exclusive glass-fabrication technique turn these sonic skyscrapers into nearly invisible towers of audible power. However, these speakers don’t get by on just looks alone, the Victoria EVO can perfectly reproduce the entire frequency range without the assistance of a subwoofer. So if you’re in the market for a speaker that’s looks as dynamic as it sounds…look no further, though if you look past it it’s probably because it blends in so well with everything else.
