    Yes. But I must confess I have been eying the Plasma tweeter for a while already.

    I hope they will have a semi-active version there. Was e-mailing with Mr. Lansche yesterday, and he again emphasized the importance of bi-amping.

    Congratulations Kuoppis!

    Great to see your glowing praise for the Lansches.

    I am also one of those who didn't know what quite to make of Lansche from my listening at Munich (2017). I did get a glimpse of the speed of the tweeters but could not get enough of a listen to gauge much more than that. Your experience shows how important the role of a good distributor is in allowing you to listen to them in your own setup. Very interesting to read up on your impressions of the models from within the Lansche lineup.

    For a speaker to get you to move from Magico really does say something ... enjoy!

    Regards

    Thank you for the kind comment.

    The Lansches are indeed great, and it is very important to hear them in your environment.

    I do like Magicos, but with the Plasma horn tweeters the Lansches are more life-like.

    Will plasma tweeter deteriorate as time goes by? Does it have a finite lifespan?

    Yes. I believe 5-8 years between the rebuilds.

    That’s correct, 5-7K hours they say. With my level of use maybe 5-6 years between re-works.

    That is an issue, but I never owned a speaker for that long anyway .

    Did you buy these direct or through Perfect Note? Just curious.

    Being Germany based, the manufacturer. Not entirely sure who handles distribution in the US.

    Incoming: Lansche 4.2 with the Corona Plasma Tweeter

    First update to the Lansches: 3m AQ Thunder HC power cables to power the subwoofers and the Plasma tweeters.



    First impression after the cables had settled a bit was a slightly tighter and crisper lower bass. The cables need to burn-in a bit for sure, but so far I like the effect.

    Incoming: Lansche 4.2 with the Corona Plasma Tweeter

    Second update to the Lansches: Update of the Coronas to the latest 2019 revision. In the update all circuit boards inside the Plasma tweeter are replaced. This update increases resolution in the lower frequencies of the tweeter’s 1.5 kHz - 150 kHz frequency range.







    This is how the Plasma tweeters look when taken out out the enclosure.

    Really like what I’m hearing so far. Even more coherent sound top to bottom. Further improved imaging and soundstaging. The amount of detail is just mind boggling. And not even a hint of sharpness.
