Endow Audio Bravura 12 Speaker @ FLAX 2023 Immersive musical pleasures from this exceptional new design.

 

  Endow Audio had a great showing here at the Florida International Audio Expo 2023 with their Bravura 12 loudspeaker ($14,000 per pair). This is a follow-up to their highly-regarded T35 ($19,900 per pair we reviewed here). Within Brett Rudolph's review of the T35 he said, "The second selection was Billy Joel Songs In The Attic [Mobile Fidelity] song title "Miami 2017 (Seen the lights go out on Broadway)." The live track is another one of my favorites because it tends to have a vast range of sounds and tends to cause speakers to lose their cohesiveness. Additionally, in many cases, the sound stage tends to compress and become somewhat uninvolving instead of what should be exciting to the listener. Again the Endow T35s shined with this selection. The listener enjoyed the same enveloping soundstage as the first selection. The speakers faded back, and the music took immediate and total control. There was no lack of consistency or presence in the music. You felt transported to the performance itself! I was quickly feeling the excitement and energy meant to come from the recording. Certain facets became apparent, which until hearing them on these speakers I had never noticed before."

 

 

System Details:
Endow Audio Bravura 12 ($14,000 per pair)
Endow Audio Bravura Cable ($700)
Amplifier: Hegel 590 ($11,000)
iFi Audio Pro iDSD DAC ($3249)

 

 

Above is the Bravura 7 ($6500 per pair) that was on display during FLAX 2023 here in Tampa. It is a 'microtower' at 21" high and features the company's Point Array speaker technology. A 22mm textile dome tweeter within the horn section has nine 1.5" wideband drivers on the outer section (at rear of horn). A 7" woofer delivers excellet bass down to 48Hz.

According to Tim Strunk of Endow Audio, when Covid happened they took the time to fine-tune their Point Array technology. The result is the Bravura 12 floorstander, which he believes retains the whole room experience while adding detailed imaging in the primary position. After giving this system a careful listen during FLAX 2023 I agree they have a winner on their hand with the Bravura 12 speaker. That this new model also comes in at a lower price it's a big win-win for everyone!

 

 

As a tower with point array technology, Endow Audio's Bravura T35 floorstanding speaker design employs dual side-firing 12" woofers to deliver prestigious bass down to 25Hz. A 22mm textile down tweeter produces the upper frequencies, which is also helped by nine 1.5" wide bandwidth drivers that encircle the uppermost horn (see pics). These drivers all work together to provide a very enjoyable immersive musical experience.

 

 

I thoroughly enjoyed my time listening to the Endow Audio speaker at FLAX 2023. Without a doubt their system earns my Best Of FLAX 2023 Award, and when you get a chance to hear them at other shows be sure to take a long (and deeply satisfying) listen. As always... enjoy the music!
