Numerous innovations that would literally set music free are in the new Audio Physic CARDEAS, is how the German company Audio Physic raves about the latest speaker system from the Sauerlaund.


The German company Audio Physic GmbH claims to have been setting new standards in the field of loudspeaker systems with powerful sound for more than 35 years. They develop and produce solutions that offer a unique natural stereo stage. This is achieved through expertise and attention to detail. In Brilon, Sauerland, they have developed a multitude of innovations that are unparalleled.

Innovation is also a keyword that Audio Physic uses to describe its latest loudspeaker system, the Audio Physic CARDEAS. What’s more, this loudspeaker system offers numerous innovations and further developments that, according to the company, had not yet seen the light of day. The new Audio Physic CARDEAS is a solution that literally liberates music. This is called the Audio Physic PowerTrain.

On a more sober note, the new Audio Physic CARDEAS is a floor-standing loudspeaker system, specifically a four-way floor-standing loudspeaker system, which actually comes up with a number of interesting features and details. The manufacturer from Brilon even says that it was developed from scratch and represents a completely new generation of loudspeakers.

For this solution, the developers used a so-called multi-sandwich cabinet in order to do everything possible to create optimal conditions for the best possible results.

An asymmetrical structure on the inside as well as a stiffening with honeycomb panels placed at important points are intended to exclude inherent sound right from the start. In addition, the outside of the cabinet is covered with a glass-elastomer composite to guarantee high rigidity and high internal damping.

A glance at the data sheet shows just how complex the construction is: 63 kg in weight with comparatively compact dimensions of 128 cm in height, 43 cm in depth and 25 cm in width are primarily due to the cabinet construction.

The Audio Physic HHCT III+ tweeter unit, which has been separated for optimum decoupling, is used in the new Audio Physic CARDEAS.

Another special feature is the Audio Physic HHCM SL bass-midrange driver, which, according to the manufacturer, works without a spider. The new Audio Physic Double Surround bass and midrange drivers also work without a conventional spider, so there is hardly any resistance and the drivers are said to achieve particularly high dynamics and resolution.

It goes without saying that the highest value is placed on an accurate crossover, optimal internal cabling and a flawless connection panel. The connections for the tweeter and midrange speaker have been newly developed and equipped with WBT Plasma contacts. The terminal uses improved WBT nextgen binding posts and the choice of capacitors was made in long listening sessions, with innovative copper foam contacting.

As already mentioned, the manufacturer refers to the new Audio Physic CARDEAS as the Audio Physic PowerTrain based on newly centred chassis in the focus. The company is convinced that this is supposed to transfer kinetic energy in an almost unimaginable and efficient way. The company emphasises an extremely wide dynamic range without compression, precision and speed in imaging, as well as extremely low distortion and resonance as the most important features. All in all, this results in an unsurpassed music reproduction, but also facilitates the positioning in the room, because the new Audio Physic CARDEAS is absolutely uncritical in this respect.

The new Audio Physic CARDEAS with an impedance of 4 ohms and a sensitivity of 89 dB is designed for amplifiers with a power output of between 40 and 350 watts. It is capable of reproducing a frequency range between 25 Hz and 40 kHz.

When it comes to design, Audio Physic wants to offer the customer the greatest possible variety. Thus, the new Audio Physic CARDEAS is offered in dozens of variants. The spectrum ranges from high-gloss black or white, high-gloss anthracite, high-gloss silver-grey, high-gloss pearl-white and high-gloss red to high-gloss ebony and high-gloss walnut. The combination of these colours and a black baffle framing the drivers is always a winning combination. The Audio Physic CARDEAS rests on elegant, slender black feet.

The delivery of the new Audio Physic CARDEAS is planned for the first quarter of 2021, according to information from the manufacturer. The recommended retail price starts at € 36,550 per pair and depends on the respective design variant.
