    Stenheim Alumine Three

    Stenheim will these days present their new "compact" speaker Alumine Three. Knowing Jean Pascal and hearing Alumine two and five I have no doubt this will be a bingo one...

    Re: Stenheim Alumine Three

    Indeed, I think it looks very very interesting. Unfortunately slightly out of budget for myself, but still very nice. I hope to hear it in Munich in May.

    A bit confusing to call it "Three" when they already had the "3 Way" in the product line, and it's often called just Three.

    Re: Stenheim Alumine Three

    I have heard the Alumine 5 at a dealer where the room in my memory is 6-7 meter long and 4 meter wide , they was placed on the short wall and doing very good. That room is also treated acoustically , so even with the one af the long sides being windows it still plays really good.

    From AVNirvana forum:

    "AXPONA is off to a strong start. One of the first rooms I hit up with my fellow AV NIRVANA-ers was the Fidelis room, where they were exhibiting their Stenheim Speakers. Stenheim is a high end swiss speaker brand of speakers that I've heard a few times before. This time arauond I was able to take a listen to both the New Alumine 3 and existing Alumine Two speakers.

    Alumine Two Bookshelf


    What surprised me was how good these sounded. I've been a fan of their industrial design for some time, but not had a time to hear many of their speakers. The Alumine Two, their entry level speaker, was especially nice sounding for its compact size. Notably throwing a wide and believable soundstage. I found them both tonaly neutral, which was nice to hear."

    Alumine Three room review by Stereophile:

    "OMG, it's music" is the first thing I wrote down in this room. "So much of what I've missed at this show is here."

    Swedish price of the Three is about 44% of the price of the Five, maybe that can give you an idea in search for the more exact price.
