Angel City Audio
I don’t recall ever hearing about this loudspeaker company. The room was a bit unassuming – so it was a very pleasant surprise.
Give these ACA Seraphim loudspeakers a listen. Everything sounds so “accurate” about this system. From the low-level dynamics to its explosive yet controlled punchiness. There are a perspective and articulation I don’t hear from many of the systems.
Resolution and timbre are also some of its strongest (and important) attributes. Piano and guitar sound as they should. And voices have an eerie and convincing presence. The soundstage was naturally sized and the performers were full-bodied with a gravitational pull.
We didn’t want to give up the sweet spot in this room – and look forward to hearing these beauties again soon.
In Christian tradition, the Seraphim are angels that mediate between heaven and earth, singing to God Himself. Our Seraphim is a messenger of heavenly sound from the City of Angels, singing to you in ways that will leave you mesmerized.
The Seraphim is the ACA’s newest creation, is a 3-way floorstanding speaker that builds on the well received Trinity LCR to set a new standard for performance. The Seraphim retains much of the Trinity’s rich, clear presentation, but has a more refined top end and brings true full range performance with prodigious levels of deep, accurate bass.
