while I did enjoy the Gobel Divin Noblesse at Axpona three weeks ago, I preferred the performance of the Gobel Epoque Aeon Reference speakers I heard at the distributor’s showroom in South Florida in December, and at RMAF in October. it seemed to dig deeper into the music.
the Divin is a fine speaker and more appropriate for a modestly powered tube amp, but maybe does not take full advantage of the Gobel technology with not using the Bending Wave driver. the Epoque was really quite amazing sounding.....especially in South Florida. if you have 250 large and the appropriate system to let it sing, it should be on your short list of speakers to hear.
and Elliot, the distributor, is a great guy to hang with. love his musical tastes.
I did not sense any sort of non coherence related to driver configuration with the Divin, but it was a show after all.
