Made in the same factory, and from the same designers as the legendary Tidal hi-fi company, Vimberg has astounded us here at The Audiobarn.

Two decades ago we founded the TIDAL Audio GmbH and became worldwide famous for making maybe the finest audio systems under this sky – being said in countless references from the audio press worldwide: TIDAL.
We do know TIDAL is and always will be for most music lovers financially inaccessible, given the second to none uncompromised approach behind it. But with proven consistent excellence we now go the next step. And make things more possible for a wider audience without compromising the ideals we believe into: VIMBERG™.
Clients for real high end products want and need proven consistency of quality, a real heritage DNA and a waterproof story of “behind the curtain”. VIMBERG™ is not some start-up, but being designed and made from the same people making the TIDAL ultra high-end masterpieces. And by that we mean: the same people with the same engineering skills, the same “we care” attitude and all is being designed and built under the same roof.
You have the choice: the Amea comes with a 30 mm ceramic tweeter or optional with a 30 mm diamond tweeter. With our unique VIMBERG crossover technology the ceramic tweeter offers a clarity and openness in the high frequency level rarely heard. And for those who want to have the reference choice we do offer the even more exquisite 30 mm pure diamond tweeter option – and call it Amea D.
The Amea is being equipped with a 173 mm Accuton ceramic midrange woofer. Despite of its very hard and light diaphragm we managed to integrate this driver without any kind resonances at all and blend it perfectly into the tweeter and the woofers. Like no other.
As woofers we do use three 220 mm Accuton woofers with 3D shaped honeycomb sandwich diaphragm made out of aluminum. These woofers do run in a perfectly calculated volume of air volume inside the Amea cabinet to reproduce an extreme fast and deep bass. Like no other.
The VIMBERG Amea crossover is second to none in design and effort. Not only the parts and execution quality is exceptional, more important the topology was designed specifically for these drivers in this very construction. All this does correspond into superb off-axis performance, an ultra linear frequency response and incredible timing. Also the drivers are perfectly blended into each other without having any kind of resonance left. And the real kicker: we do manage all this avoiding impedance drops and low efficiency. Like no other.
The whole high-midrange unit and all woofers of the VIMBERG Amea are being installed into an aluminum front plate and internal aluminum mountings. While being as material for a speaker cabinet a compromised choice since its resonance behaviour, in this case aluminum reinforces the construction of the Amea. In combination with the resonance absorbing waterproof HDF fibre laminate the unit gives extremely tight hold to the drivers for utmost precision.
Each VIMBERG loudspeaker is using original Argento binding posts. Being moulded out of a fibre-reinforced polymer it avoids any kind of magnetically interference with the conductor itself. Internally each VIMBERG speaker is being wired with a true high end coaxial cable.
