Prize Details: Arendal Sound 1961 Tower Loudspeakers

From Arendal Sound: "1961 Tower is a real wolf in sheep’s clothing. It’s a relatively compact tower speaker, but in typical Arendal Sound fashion, it offers dynamics, realism and sound pressure you wouldn’t expect from a speaker this size. Everything about this speaker is custom designed and developed by our engineers, there are no off-the-shelf components found in other speakers. Well, unless you count other Arendal Sound speakers, as its borrowing quite a bit of tech from its larger brothers in the 1723 series. And of course, the cabinets are heavy and sturdy, made in HDF."

The Arendal Sound 1961 Series Story (excerpt from Arendal)

"The 1961 series builds on our award winning 1723 series. We have trickled down as much of our 1723 technology as possible and applied all the know-how and tricks we have acquired, leading to a series that offer astounding performance for the money. 1961 are still in the Premium range of speakers. We use high-quality paint and HDF cabinets. No cheap vinyl or simple solutions. We don’t skimp where we know it matters. All Arendal Sound speakers are built around our beloved waveguide technology; the 1961 series offers a new customized waveguide. It’s not a horn. It’s a properly executed waveguide with a sleek design. It’s an engineering piece of art down to nanometre precision for refined and accurate reproduction of sound."

Being a world wide giveaway, I imaging the odds of winning are pretty low. But certainly much better than the Powerball!

Idk Powerball is something like 292 million to one. World wide would be closer to 7-8 billion to 1 hahhahaha
