Peak Consult Perspective for The Zoltan
Processing, controlling and assembling of Zoltan is handled by skilled craftsmen within our own facilities. Countlesshours of measurement and critical listening are logged to correlate design theory and practice. Zoltan’s impedance curvelooks more like a purely resistive ribbon than a dynamic speaker, making use with any kind of amplifier easy. The finalblend of art and technology have made Zoltan an uncompromising performer. Zoltan is a true State of the Art loudspeaker, able to recreate music with stunning realism, regardless of whether or not you are using small tubes or a big solid-state amplifiers.

The multifaceted enclosure is handcrafted in our own facilities by Danish artisans in a 1.5”- 3.0” HDF specially glued sandwich material covered by 1” solid hardwood. The side panels have been made out of “finger tapped” wood. Each wood panel has been hand-chosen, processed and assembled with traditional Danish fine wood crafting techniques.
The geometrical design optimises the off-axis response while minimizing diffraction. In order to minimize internal standing-waves, there are no parallel front, back, top or bottom panels. The slant of the front panel aligns the phase and timing between tweeter, midrange and woofers.
The Danish Scan-Speak tweeter is a non-Ferro fluid 1" soft dome, SD-2 motor, low compression design, and non-resonant chamber, modified here for our specific performance parameters to perform effortlessly.
The Danish 5” Audiotechnology midrange is hand-built specifically for optimal behaviour in the Zoltan’s enclosure.
The driver features a cone that has been uniquely shaped for this moving system and a vented magnet system that includes Symmetric Drive, optimising the linear directivity. It performs with peerless soundstaging ability.
The dual Danish 7” Audiotechnology woofer array is hand-built and specifically designed for Zoltan. The technology used in the moving system makes them very low-loss drivers. The magnet and ventilation system allows the drivers to reproduce very tight and extremely low frequencies.
The speaker includes an acoustical odd order crossover in the tweeter/midrange section and a third order in the midrange/bas section. Every component has been chosen for its sonic and musical behaviour, with no consideration for cost. The crossover is hardwired with silver solder and sealed in the bottom of the speaker to avoid microfony and to shield it from electrical and magnetic radiation from rest of the system. Peak Consult have chosen to include the best cable available to High End Audio: The purest solid core silver cable from Stereovox.
The speaker includes an acoustical second order crossover in the tweeter/midrange section and also a second order in the midrange/bass section. Every component has been chosen for its sonic and musical behaviour, with no consideration for cost, most of them having been custom hand-built for Zoltan. The crossover is crimped and then hardwired with silver soldering and sealed to avoid microphony and to shield it from electrical and magnetic radiation from rest of the system. For the internal wire Peak Consult has chosen the best silver internal wire from Stereovox.
