L'Instrument 8PS 

by VIKING ACOUSTICS 

Floor Standing Reference high-efficiency loudspeaker... A masterpiece for reference tube systems.

The Viking Horn-loading principle is totally different. It is a NOT compression driver system but rather a non-compressed horn loading.

 The Viking Acoustics horn is a multi-function horn. The horn is a bass-horn for the woofer and simultaneously for the mid-to-high-frequency driver. Bass, mid-range, and treble come out of the horn with correct timing. This creates a free-flowing, totally natural sound. Sound is augmented with all the benefits of the horn, but without the pitfalls of compression horn loading.  
 
Viking Acoustics horn is based on a logarithmic curve the shape of the middle of the curvature of a chambered nautilus. The center of the horns curve; if continued would make a nearly perfect circle.

L'INSTRUMENT 8PS 

L’Instrument 8PS will reveal the perfection of sound produced by top source and amplification. 

Viking Acoustics Instrument 8PS is a no-compromise approach to the high sensitivity true point source loudspeaker designed for today's reference tube amplifiers. The 8PS features the sonic attributes and beauty of heirloom tone-wood and the world's finest components. 

Looking at 8PS It's easy to believe a high-end full ranger mounted in a large turned wood horn will produce word-class high definition midrange. Exceptional vocal articulation and pinpoint imaging. What's surprising is the absolutely huge soundstage and staggering bass produced by 8PS' bass-horn.
