|Anyone familiar with Baltek Audio of Latvia, and their line of speakers, the Baltic 20/30/50/90s? |
As stated, this is a Latvian company, and seemed to operate in the early to mid 90's. Looks like driver construction was farmed out and built to the company's specs, and quality componentry and design utilized.
Cabinets are well built, and are of ported design via a slotted opening- perhaps more of an aperoidic design?
Upper models (50 & 90) also utilize adjustable mid and tweeter controls.
I own two pair of the 30s and enjoy the deep rich bass this bookshelf, the approximate ballpark size of Paradigm Titans/NHT SuperOnes (which I also own), can produce.
The metal dome tweeter can be a bit bright in my lively room, matched with the wrong amp, mind you. But with proper amp and neutral room, no issues. The driver build quality is excellent, with cast frame woofers and quality tweeters, and the crossover is well-constructed with hearty caps and a protective netting over the components.
Cabinetry is also substancial,even if the grill proves a bit rustic.
Models sold, as far as I have found, are the Baltic 20 (size of a Paradigm Atom/NHT SuperZero), the afformentioned 30, a three way 50 and I assume a 3 way 90.
The 90 appears to require a large room to work properly, so I've read, due to the amount of bass it can deliver.
That's pretty much all I know about them so far...
