Acoustic Preference Gracioso 2.0

The Sum of Its Parts

As your eye climbs the distinctively un-bookmatched horizontal segments that make up Acoustic Preference’s Gracioso 2.0 loudspeaker and wanders around its inviting curves, it’s hard to believe that such striking elements are a perfect example of form following function.

Indeed, this is a speaker, and not a work of art for art’s sake.

Even the most aesthetically challenged audiophile has to admit there’s something about those sexy slices of contrasting solid walnut and the elegant teardrop design that transcends their mere ability to eliminate undesirable internal resonances.

Designer Marjan Tancer and engineer Davorin Žnuderl have packed the handcrafted Gracioso 2.0 with plenty of purely functional features, from its high-performance Morel drivers to its custom braided HGA Solid Silver wire with clear Teflon insulation (which, sadly, you’ll never get to ogle).

The Gracioso's are rated at 91 dB at 1 watt at 1 meter, and have a claimed frequency response of 35 Hz - 20 kHz. The system is crossed over with 12 dB per octave crossovers at 2200 Hz.

Available in European or American walnut, with a beautiful natural waxed finish.

PRICE:
Gracioso 2.0: €10,400 to €11,300 (approx. $14,750 to $16,000)
