Log Audio Vivant: Emotional Reference Floor Speakers
About its latest development, the Vivant, Log Audio speaks superlatively: “Never before has an acoustics of this size created a sound that can shake walls and at the same time touch the strings of the soul”. The dimensions are relatively modest: 450x1050x300 mm with a column weighing 40kg.
This is a five-way active model, equipped with class AB amplifiers with a total power of 600 watts. Each speaker houses a 12-inch subwoofer on the rear panel, while the front panel is decorated with two 8-inch woofers, a 3-inch midrange, an inch dome tweeter and a supertweeter recessed into the horn. This configuration plays from 25 Hz to 25 kHz and, according to the developers, is suitable for both music and cinema. Acoustic design – bass reflex.
The acoustics control is placed in a separate block called Prolog 2. This block provides all commutation, including wireless. XLR and optics are available from the inputs, the acoustics are also ready to receive a signal via AirPlay, UPnP, Bluetooth (with aptX), there is support for Spotify. TuneIn, Tidal and Qobuz. The unit communicates with the acoustics using the WiSA protocol – there is no need to pull wires to it.
The heart of the acoustics is the development of Log AudioEngine, which is responsible for processing the incoming signal. It operates in 24-bit / 192 kHz format and uses an ASRC circuit to eliminate jitter in conjunction with a clock generator.
For the first time this acoustics in a prototype format appeared last fall at an audio exhibition in Vienna, but now the developers have brought it to mind. The company did not disclose the cost of Vivant.
