The Vimberg Mino is the middle model in the Vimberg range, standing almost 1.3m high and weighing 159 pounds per speaker.
Designed and manufactured in the Tidal Audio factory in Germany, the level of care and almost obsessive attention to detail speakers for itself when you hear a pair of Vimberg loudpeakers, the level of purity, clarity and finesse you can get from is quite astounding, the 3 x 168mm Accuton bass drivers in the Tonda shift enough air to give them serious weight and bass extension.
The Mino comes with as standard 30 mm ceramic tweeter or you have the option to have a 30 mm diamond tweeter. With Vimberg unique crossover technology using Dueland & Mundorf the ceramic tweeter offers a clarity and openness in the high frequency level rarely heard. And for those who want to have the ultimate level of clarity & openness there is the 30 mm pure diamond tweeter option this is simply called the Mino D. The Mino D are £31,000 per pair.
The Mino is being equipped with a 90 mm Accuton ceramic midrange woofer. Despite of its very hard and light diaphragm Vimberg havemanaged to integrate this driver without any kind resonances at all and blend it perfectly into the tweeter and the woofers. Like no other – The integration between all of the drive units is incredible, there is a seamless transition both up and down the frequencies, and the speaker is absolutely linear, no bass humps or artificial treble spikes like some speakers do to pull you in and impress you initially. The midrange unit of the Tonda is installed into a massive aluminum front plate. This reinforces the construction of the Tonda and in combination with the resonance absorbing waterproof HDF fibre laminate the unit gives extremely tight hold to the drivers for utmost precision.
The tweeter and mid-range drive units in the Mino are identical to those in the Tonda.
As mentioned above the bass drivers are 3 x 168 mm Accuton woofers with 3D shaped honeycomb sandwich diaphragm made out of aluminum. These woofers run in a perfectly calculated volume of air volume inside the Tonda cabinet to reproduce an extreme fast and deep bass, quite something to behold! The bass drivers in the Mino are installed into the same style Aluminim plate as the mid-range driver to eliminate cabinet resonance and maintain absolute accuracy.
The Mino crossover is second to none in design and effort. Not only the are the components and execution exceptional, more important the topology was designed specifically for these drive units for the Mino. All this corresponds into superb off-axis performance, an ultra linear frequency response and incredible timing. Also the drivers are perfectly blended into each other without having any kind of resonance left. And the real kicker: no impedance drops and low efficiency. Like no other.
All Vimberg floorstanders come with massive feet! This is milled out of one block aluminum, a complex shape with many different angles. This stand then is connected to a 5-part isolation device with a Teflon-glider inlay to have the very best isolation and height adjustment to different grounds such as hardwood floors, tiles or even carpet.
We have the Vimberg Mino on permanent demonstration so if you would like to find out just how special these speakers are please get in touch to arrange a demonstration, the level of purity and clarity they deliver is an another level to just about every other speaker out there.
