Best product of 2018 award

However, the most important thing is the sound quality. The smooth control, excellent timing and coherence of the Overture O205F are the main assets, making these AudioSolutions unexpectedly strong speakers.
JAMIE BIESEMANS

Conclusion: The Overture O205F has somewhat surprised us. You don't often come across a relatively unknown brand that comes in and immediately creates something very beautiful. Some people would say: "In terms of sound, they score, because design is not our thing." Well, we would understand that remark, although you have to admit that thirteen finishes offer a bit of personalization that you do not often encounter elsewhere. Not at this price point. The Overture O205F is also the largest of the Overture speakers, and a large size scares some. The smaller O203F, for example, will integrate better into your interior. However, the most important thing is the sound quality. The smooth control, excellent timing and coherence of the Overture O205F are the main assets, making these AudioSolutions unexpectedly strong speakers.

REVIEW: can you still start a speaker brand and expect to lure people away from names that have had decades to attract a loyal audience? For the young Lithuanian AudioSolutions we hope that the answer is "yes". Because they do have something that is worth hearing.

AudoSolutions

Gediminas Gaidelis is a name that you probably won't sound familiar. This Lithuanian engineer is the driving force behind the young loudspeaker builder AudioSolutions who has won a lot of praise in a short time. Interestingly, and after a brief exposure to a number of speakers from the brand at the recent XFI Show , we decided to get the O205F from the cheapest Overture line for testing. It was not so much the demonstration on the show that stimulated us, but the philosophy of the brand. After all, when designing speakers, AudioSolutions emphasizes scientifically based acoustic design - and that is exactly what we love.

Look mama, no glue

The O205F is the largest loudspeaker from the Overture family, which also has two smaller floor stands (O203F and O204F), a center speaker (O201C) and a bookshelf speaker (O202B) among its members. "Large" is a label that is fully in place here, because the floorstand that we place in our listening room weighs 36 kg and is just under 125 cm high. The width and height are in proportion, in contrast to many slender speakers that we recently saw passing. This makes the 0205F a really solid and very present presence in a room. We can imagine that for smaller living rooms it is too much of a good thing. But remember: there is also a slightly more compact 0203F. The large O205F costs 3,850 euros per pair, unless you choose a more expensive finish.

The O205F is not a loudspeaker that makes our heart beat faster, we must admit that. We prefer a smooth, rounded design. The size and the angularity make this Lithuanian speaker look very classic, although that impression is not entirely correct if you take more time to view and investigate the speaker. Yes, the speaker is basically matte black, but you can get the side panels in many different colors and finishes. Thirteen to be exact. Our test speaker was finished in 'Texture White', a glossy white with very fine, irregular lines. If you look at it better, a relief appears to have been applied, but if you brush it over by hand it is mirror smooth. It is difficult to describe and photos do not do it justice, but it is quite distinct and beautiful. Just like some other finishes, Texture White raises the price to 4,250 euros per pair. Dark Olive and Ebony the price tag rise to 4,650 euros.

So you have plenty of choice with the Overture series. The same Texture finish is also available in black, in addition to four glossy lacquers and seven wood finishes with a lacquer layer. Rotted Zebrano for example, we personally find a great finish. It may have a somewhat unsavory name, but it looks worth it. If you purchase an O205F you must immediately make the right choice, because the side panels cannot be changed afterwards. AudioSolutions first builds the Overture speakers without side panels, but confirms them as a final step in a way that is permanent. The entire speaker cabinet clicks together cleverly, a technique that Gaidelis calls a self-locking cabinet. Both the outer walls and the internal reinforcement (bracing) fit together in such a way that it is impossible to disassemble the speaker at a later time. You can of course replace drivers. The remarkable thing is that the housing appears extremely solid and resonance-free, but that hardly any adhesives are involved. Clicking the cabinet parts together is enough to build a strong whole. 

The front is the grille

What is replaceable is the front of the O205F. That sentence might make you look up, but Gaidelis has a strong opinion about the use of a speaker grille. The drivers of the O205F are mounted flush with respect to the front, with softly curving edges at each opening. As a result, the outer edge of each driver is 'lengthened', as a result of which fewer mini reflections are created at the edge of each driver opening and the edges act as a horn or wave guide to send the sound waves of a driver wider into the room. This is not obscure science, because we often see the same approach with speakers.

For example, with the tweeter of the Paradigm Monitor SE speakers that we recently visited for a test. But, says AudioSolutions, if you now place a grille for this construction, you will change the acoustic properties because it will have an extra layer. The solution according to the manufacturer is a front that is completely replaced by another with a cloth applied over the entire length of the panel. Both panels - with and without grille - are included in the box. The first time you replace the panels you may think "this is crazy to do", but actually it goes very smoothly. Just lift it off, like a conventional grille, but this is one big piece.

Fluent music

For our test we connected the Overture O205F to our fixed amplifier, the Devialet Expert 220 Pro, with Roon. Towards the end of the test we received the Linn SELEKT DSM. The latter is interesting, because this versatile all-in-one amplifier is equipped with Space Optimization - a fascinating room correction system without a measuring microphone and that takes into account the dimensions of your room and the characteristics of your speakers. You can read more about this in our review of the Selekt, which will be online soon.

During testing, we happened to meet a colleague from another magazine who had been working on the smaller O203F for some time. He noted that, in his opinion, Overture speakers are close to Sonus faber in terms of sound. A description that we can agree with, although we would dare say that AudioSolutions is less attracted to a presence presence than the Italians. This is a huge generalization of course, but it gives you an idea how the Overture O205F offers something else.

Overture O205F places the dome tweeter in the middle, between two pairs of midrange woofers. AudioSolutions is certainly not the first to do this. It is also an approach that we do like. Yes, with broad-woofers radiating the sense of detail may theoretically be somewhat lost, but on the other hand we find this driver arrangement often produce a coherent sound image. The tweeters on the O205F are also more or less at the correct ear height due to this placement and that is another plus. During our tests the O205F appears to control very quickly. The specifications support that impression, because the sensitivity of 92 dB means that you do not need an amplifier with an enormous power for this floor stand.

One of the things that we liked very much about the O205F is indeed how the speakers put down a coherent sound image, even with genres that have not been produced enormously. Even at high volumes, the whole remains very well balanced and holographic, in the sense that every instrument is perfectly placed. The brand new re-release of 'Love & Work: The Lioness Sessions' (originally dating from 2000) from Songs: Ohia, aka the early-dead Jason Molina, demonstrated that well. Almost all the songs on this album consist of a voice, a slow electric guitar, a drum that sounds like recorded in the distance, and occasionally some Hammond-like synthesizers. It is not a bad mix, but on some speakers that guitar or synth can become sharp and dominant as soon as you play loud. The O205F, however, presents the entire sound stage as a whole, very fluent and forgiving too. What also helps is that the Overture sets a fairly tight low, even if we switch off Space Optimization - which mainly affects 100 Hz and lower - on the Linn.

The timing of the drivers seems close to perfection, and that gives all music a fresh, accurate sound. The deep, reggae-like bass line at 'Gun to the Head' on 'Merrie Land' by The Good, the Bad & the Queen is also measured but has enough fat. If we once again get the beautifully recorded SACD from Karajan's Symphony No. 9 above, we will be served a relatively open presentation. At this point we did experiment a little with the toe-in (something that is also an interplay with room acoustics), and in the end we ended up with partial but not completely screwed in for the best panoramic view. We also liked the Berlin Philharmoniker to be slightly more attractive when we switched off the Space Optimization function on the Linn, or played it on the Devialet Expert Pro amplifier. Perhaps because a little more energy could be heard in the layer, due to the room acoustics. A case of: not correct, but better.

Conclusion

The Overture O205F has somewhat surprised us. You don't often come across a relatively unknown brand that comes in and immediately creates something very beautiful. Some people would say: "In terms of sound, they score, because design is not our thing." Well, we would understand that remark, although you have to admit that thirteen finishes offer a bit of personalization that you do not often encounter elsewhere. Not at this price point. The Overture O205F is also the largest of the Overture speakers, and a large size scares some. The smaller O203F, for example, will integrate better into your interior.

However, the most important thing is the sound quality. The smooth control, excellent timing and coherence of the Overture O205F are the main assets, making these AudioSolutions unexpectedly strong speakers.
