After several years we discontinue the Gioia, the Gran Gioia and the Clara Luna. The reasons are different but absolutely understandable.
The Clara Luna: one of the components is no more available and there is no possibility to find an alternative without going in the MK 2 version.
The Gran Gioia: in the last years we have made huge steps forward in the construction and in the knowledge about how to build horns and phase plugs.
The Gioia: very simple, the costs related to the construction of the Gioia are just a little bit lower than the costs related to the Gran Gioia. This would put the Gioia in a very similar price category to the Gran Gioia and would force us to artificially increase the price of the Gran Gioia. We are not keen to these pricing games just to avoid internal competitions. We aim at giving the best value for money to our customers.
The Audio Art Magazine from Taiwan is publishing a book about Loudspeakers. The translated title is "All about loudspeakers" and our Clara Luna has been included. You can read the information exchanged on page 12 of the book. Here is their news about the book
from the 3rd until the 22nd of September in Berlin in Stilwerk, Max Schlundt presented our products in his IFA-Parallel event.
We brought him the Clara Luna for which should be taken an appointment; the Genuin FS 1, the Genuin FS 3 and the Fun 17 were on the contrary ready for play anytime.
At Max event there have been some interesting panel discussion on several arguments concerning the world of HiFi nowadays, and the changes happened in the last years from the vinyl to the streamer’s era. We unfortunately did not have the chance to participate and listen to the lessons, but Max told us that they have been a success.

We enjoyed and tested several different kind of sources and amplifier, each of them with its Pro and not really any Contra... ;-)
“Brutale” or “Monster” was the project name due to costs and development that were necessary to realize it.
We made it for you, to give you the opportunity to enjoy what is possible in terms of sound reprocuction
