Zeiler Audio

Zeiler Audio’s Ralf Zeiler took a stellar rig to AXPONA. I was very curious to hear his room at High End Munich.

The turntable was a “simple Garrard 401,” Zeiler wrote prior to the show. I didn’t recognize the tonearm or cartridge.

Amplification consisted of Zeiler’s unusual looking, low-profile Zeiler Audio PR-01 Preamp ($37,000) and PA-01 Power Amplifier ($37,000), each with tubes mounted horizontally. A Zeiler Audio SUT ($4500) was also used.

Zeiler debuted his new SP-01 Loudspeakers (matte: $35,000/pair; gloss: $42,000/pair).

“I see the SP-01 as a modern interpretation and a tribute to the iconic studio monitors from Tannoy and Altec, which served as the standard in recording and broadcasting studios during the 1960s and 70s,” Zeiler wrote on his website.

With a minimum impedance of 8 ohms and 97dB efficiency, the SP-01 could mate easily with any amplifier. It uses a 15″ pro-audio neodymium coaxial driver with carbon-fiber-reinforced paper cone; an elliptical wave guide said to provide constant directivity; a vented enclosure with a variable bass port; enclosure walls consisting of a compound of several wood- and non-wood layers of different density and hardness; a two-way crossover featuring custom-made paper-in-oil capacitors; and cryo-treated internal wiring.

Though the system could be peaky and played with occasional glare, The Rolling Stones’s “Black and Blue” filled the room with energy, grunt, and extreme fun.
