It's been a while I was waiting for this! Enfn I could find a place where test A5 STUDER. In fact I turned to the bote that makes the speakers on behalf of STUDER (PSI https://www.psiaudio.com audio) and offers the same monitors, under its own brand. In this case it was the PSI Active 25-3. APRS test have the little sisters of the A5 (the A1 and A3, which correspond to the PSI and PSI Active 14-2 actice 21-2) a few months ago, I finally got a MUCH ProCD Comparative 3 MODELS, under the same conditions, with the same electronic and audio CD (and CD player and pramp TUHLE) for about 4 hours - the home ingnieur PSI s' tapp is the Overtime for me - it is thanks.
Unlike A1 and A3 which are intended to Near Field, the A5 (MODL active 3-way) is adapted to plutt field hand and the sound (thanks the excellent dynamic) . They are large for a home studio (62 x 32 x 38 cm), however, can be used if the cost of the local vicinity is adapted.
It is powered by an XLR line between symtrique dlivre and a 300W RMS power (150 + 100 + 50 with a max SPL of 118 db). So what we have to go deaf if you push the BTE.
For technical information, everyone is rfrer to technical brochures available on the ste STUDER or that of PSI Audio. In this regard, it is both business Congratulations for the quality of information they make available to the public (in particular the response curves of frequencies and directionilat.
The test conditions are not performed IDAL, because it was a MUCH audio and not a long session on my own hardware monitoring. However I tested with CD which I know well trs timbre and dynamics (I always use the same for my tests):
- Erik Trufaz (jazz)
- Marcus Miller (jazz rock)
- Haris Xaniliou (acoustic)
- Karl Orff (classical)
- Radio Head (pop / rock)
In a word, is any (friezes, fingers slipping, instruments well hidden. It is transparent. BEAUTIFUL!
The curve appears to me trs neutral frequency drives and spacialisation is standard. On one of the pieces I have yet Erik Trufaz cost on systems 30,000 Naim hi-fi, I have the impression that the drummer plays in front of me. The slightest nuance is reproduced and jh'ai feel that I can Catch what I mean (without DCON). With that, if we can not properly position the mix! The dynamics are incredible - the Marcus slaps sound like if he had his amp branch in the hearing room. Nothing is too frquence put forward and the spectrum appears to trs well covered: the kick 50 Hz appears much better than the A3 (more power) and high-mdiums are also better for finished.
Well, if I do not take them for my home studio, the sound is so good, I take them just for bein lcoute audio!
Point of view absolutely Definition: is the top of the CATEGORY. He did it well as to fight with Genelec STUDER / PSI in this segment of the three active channels. The price? 3000 Unit (EEAA !!!!!). But the report is with the quality standard.
My only problem? The place. I do not know if I could use idalie in my current environment (not optimized. J'hsite So with the A3 ...

Mistersound's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
As crazy hifi, high end and everything related to audio (I also made a small business), I plunged for a time in the pro audio world, out of curiosity ...
I'll never get in, because I am caught in the pincers which it will be difficult to leave ...
Studer J'apparécie particular devices, including the fabulous and fantastic A68 amplifier cd player with A730, C221 etc.
But I wanted to go further in my position towards the audiophile speakers studio.C is why I went to PSI in Yverdon (north of Lausanne) and requested a hearing of the model 25-3 (since Studer markets do more).
It did not take me three hours to realize I had before me a absolutely fantastic! Precision hallucinating! Punch absolutely evil! A sound image in three D! The speakers are absolutely invisible and Incredibly, this gentleness and non-auditory fatigue (for idiophiles who might think that). I fell literally fell under the spell of these great musicians in the heart as big as that!
I immediately bought a pair that went straight home.
Not content with not having a pair in the auditorium, I give a "second layer" just after 7 days and returned to the factory PSI.
This time, madness is the highest point I decided to buy a pair of 25-3 225-1 + 2 subwoofers ... I quickly load the packages in the car, generously thank the technician (who enters Another very large knowledge and unlimited availability) and the big boss.Je go home, I install, let heat, listening and crying.
I NEVER, NEVER LISTEN such a speaker system that can combine such ease, punch, power and precision of my life! What a shock! I rediscovered my records one after the other. I am moved , confused and finally, for the first time in my life, I found my "his ideal" (you know ... the one that we all in our ears and we are looking in all demos, plays in the high end and that we never find ...).
Yet I had the speakers reference date, which I only mention Wilson Audio and I have never achieved such emotion!
No need to worry what to look for such amplification pregnant! Fini! Only a preamplifier worthy of the speaker system, a source and I swear that you will stop going to salons and buy hifi magazines " of the room, "because when you get home and listen to your system, you will say simply that there is none that holds the road like yours! In addition, the value is simply miraculous given the internal amplifiers, the technology adopted and the end result that offers this speaker system.
I tell you, it's an experience to do once in your life that you realize the world of difference there is between the audiophile world (I'm not saying it's bad, by far) pro and the world, as these pros also have ears, do moi.Eux, which does not interest them is the embellishment, beautification, but everything else, they know, and much better than some audiophiles ...
A recommend it and without moderation!
I can only say it's a wonderful system!
The figures speak for themselves, to them alone.
But your ears will rejoice!
I use them recently, but I can tell you that it's not tomorrow that I'll change them.
