New Audio Physic Virgo 5 ?

It seems that there is a new generation of the Virgo
with a newly designed HF driver. I thought I would start
a thread for anyone to chime in about it.
I would add to this that it looks like they have a new
generation of the Avanti also (also version 5 with,
it appears, the same new driver as the Virgo).
Any comments or info on this, too, would be interesting.
Yes, new Avanti 5 (comes out in 2006) and new Virgo 5 this year, introduced during the Munich High End Show. All the details about those speakers are in the Audio Physic website.
I have it at home right now. A very good speaker. Def much warmer sounding that the older Virgo III it replaces. If it wasn't German, I would say that it has a classic British sound.
Thanks for letting me know.
Could you tell me if the bass (especially the upper bass) is at all boomy or pushy or disconnected?

Is the midrange at all "in your face."

I ask this because these attributes have annoyed me in
other well-regarded speakers I have owned.

Thank you very much.
Rgs - I do not relly know what exactly do you mean by "in your face". The speaker is not bright or forward sounding by any means.

The bass may be a problem though, especially in smaller rooms where it may overpower the room.
Yes, that is exactly the info I was looking for.
(I do no like foward sounding speakers. I prefer
a recessed sound.)
Thanks again. Any more impressions in the future would
be welcome.
I'm giving them back tomorrow. They are on dealer's loan. My speaker quest continues. IMO they are not transparent enough for me + they have some bass problems (in my room).
Thanks again for the update. Could you quickly describe
the bass problems?
I simply got the feeling that the bass is to prominent. In a bigger romm than mine (14 x 19), they may work well though.
Thanks. I know the feeling.
I heard them at CES at the Venetian, driven by Lindemann equipment, and they sounded great - very transparent, and the bass was not overpowering.

Perhaps it was the room, perhaps the equipment, but the Virgo Vs were an impressive offering.

My room is 16 x 18, so perhaps I should audition them here.
FWIW, I owned the Virgo 11 and loved them. I also found the bass a little boomy, but I used a pair of Sistrum 004 stands underneath. They are probably the best tweak I've ever encountered. They completely transformed the Virgos into something nimble and effortless. I 'upgraded' to Focal Diva Utopia be, but they weren't able to accomodate thet Sistrums, and somehow the sound, while different and having more bass extension was not as good as the Virgo II, which I now miss. Anyway, I recommend trying any Virgo with these stands underneath before passing judgment.

FYI, I have no ties to audio industry. Am just recommending what I feel is a great product.
Also the new Audio Physic SSC feet can improve the low frequency performance, as somebody else already discovered on the Scorpio in this forum. IMHO, the Virgo V is the best of the Virgo.
Thanks everybody! I'm just guessing AP was sensitive to the reviews about some "mid-bass suckout" in the Avanti 3s and added some low-end oomph to the Virgos.
But you know, balance is everything in speakers.
