UPGRADED SIROCCO S30
The stock Sirocco tromps most $500 speakers, as our listening comparisons quickly showed. The bass punch is really arresting for this size speaker.
The treble is surprisingly nuanced and grain-free; the midrange delivers beautifully clear, eminently musical detail. The class-winning sound is based on
components of hard to believe quality at this price: silk dome tweeter, woven composite fiber midrange with machined aluminum phase plug, a superb first
order crossover using polypropylene caps and a super-rigid braced cabinet. The unmodded S30s are five-star rated by What Hi-Fi.
To improve upon the S30's impressive raw potential, we've gone all-out with our mods. Our Upgraded Sirocco
incorporates the following internal mods:
• all-new proprietary internal re acoustic treatment
• new and radically retuned port
• crossover dielectric and component upgrade
• Clearview internal wiring
• Clearview ribbon jumpers replacing factory klooges
With these internal upgrades alone, our modded Sirocco exceeds or rivals any $1000 monitor. As with any great speaker, it's imperative to use quality speaker wire to connect the S30s to your amp. If you're using Monster Cable or any other stranded, heavy gauge cable, you'll miss out on the full potential of the Upgraded S30. Matching them with our Golden Helix PLUS cables will unleash the S30's striking dynamic punch, unusually clean bass with lots of attack and no boominess, surprisingly transparent midrange and a brilliant, unsmeared, extended treble.
And like every other small speaker, our Upgraded S30 is dramatically improved by low, on-the-floor mounting with adjustable time-correction. Pairing the Upgraded Siroccos with our Maple Bedrock stands transforms a great budget speaker into a giant killer, besting $2000 monitors we’ve compared them to. The Upgraded Sirocco’s dynamic punch is doubled. There’s a startling increase in low bass extension, bass power, and clean, even bass articulation. Only the most bass-hungry listeners (and home theater
users) will hanker for a subwoofer. And the upgraded midrange transparency, speed and subtlety of detail is a huge step upward. You’ll hear newfound
purity and shimmer in the treble.
If you're searching for quality sound with a budget price tag, our S30s on Bedrocks with Golden Helix cables are an unbeatable value.
Maple Bedrock speaker stands with toned and black lacquer finishes are made to order and take 6-8 weeks to ship. We require a 50% non-refundable deposit for these
