"Anyone familiar with our previous BG20 speakers knows that we've always trimmed them a bit in the direction of" fun, "with a crisp midrange and not very deep, but impulsive low-frequency reproduction, while the Gouda's sound is a noticeably different caliber much more emphasis on accuracy, balance and detail reproduction It can be absolutely amazing how much good can be created with an inexpensive set of woofer and tweeter. Really great is the transition between the bass and the horn tweeter. This modified high frequency set-up has no problems at all with difficult vocals à la Ricki Lee Jones. The same applies to extremely energy-rich piano tracks such as those on Keith Jarret's immortal "Köln Concert". In the highs, the speaker also scores with silky soft sound and amazing resolution, at the upper end of the spectrum it sounds extremely natural and natural. Without any doubt, however, the Gouda lives up to its name (gold) and is by far the "most audiophile" of all our BG20 designs. "
