Designed and built under the same roof as the ultra high-end masterpieces from Tidal, Vimberg has been created to be more financially attainable while giving you much of the same quality and unbelievable attention to detail. Created for the ultimate audio systems in mid-sized spaces, the Vimberg Mino challenges the very best available at any price.  Part-time Audiophile said it best “My understanding is that this line of loudspeakers will very much have “DNA” derived from the much more expensive TIDAL brand. Think Toyota vs Lexus, if Lexus was Rolls Royce (if that makes sense).”

“Imagine with me for a moment. Let’s say Bugatti decided that it wanted to build a car that sold for $29,000 USD, and this car would also look, smell, feel, and drive like a $215,000 USD Bugatti. Albeit some minor engineering and production compromises would have to be made, but overall — the experience and emotions it would produce would be almost identical. That is what TIDAL Audio founder Jörn Janczak has just done with the development of his new VIMBERG™ company.” (Eric Shook, Audiohead.com?)

The Vimberg Mino is a stunning 3-way speaker that features the same design as the larger Vimberg Tonda model, but with smaller drivers and cabinet suitable for mid-sized spaces. Speakers that strive for this level of quality will often overwhelm many normal listening rooms and that’s why the Mino is the sweet spot of the line as you get the quality of its larger sibling, but in a smaller package. It is a full-range speaker that is utterly transparent and neutrally balanced that Stereophile calls “A True Class A loudspeaker” and “rivaled what I remember experiencing with the seven-times-the-price Tidal Akira”. Subtle details, impeccable timing and three-dimensionality allow you to be fully immersed in the musical experience.


Tweeter option

The Mino comes with a 30mm ceramic tweeter known for its stunning clarity and openness when combined with the crossovers from Vimberg using the best components available.

For those wanting the ultimate, the Mino D utilizes a pure diamond tweeter option or the Mino can be updated to this at a later date.

Ceramic midrange driver

This Accuton 90mm ceramic midrange driver is ultra lightweight to respond to musical impulses quickly and accurately. It is integrated perfectly with the either choice of tweeter.

Aluminum bass drivers

Three 168mm aluminium drivers from Accuton located in a precisely calculated cabinet volume give unbelievably deep, tight and forceful bass that belies the cabinet size.

Vimberg crossover

While immense care and attention goes into the choice of drivers and cabinet design, it’s what is ‘unseen’ that often makes the biggest difference. Using Mundorf™ & Duelund™ crossover components with superb engineering and execution allows this crossover to provide seamless integration and incredibly linear response. Also, crucially important is that the crossover implementation results in the speaker being an easy amplifier load for a wide variety of high-end amplifiers and ensures consistent performance.

Driver mounting

While many speakers mount the driver directly into an MDF cabinet, Vimberg goes much further to provide a solid, stable and vibration-free approach to getting the most from these spectacular Accuton drivers.

The midrange/tweeter unit and all bass drivers are mounted in an aluminum plate and uses aluminum internal mountings in a sandwich construction with the cabinet. The main body of the cabinet is a waterproof HDF fibre laminate that goes to another level beyond the ordinary for resonance control.

A stable footing

The Mino comes with a massive footer/outrigger arrangement milled from a solid block of aluminum. It is then connected to a unique 5-part isolation device with a Teflon-glider inlay to provide isolation, height adjustment and suitability for a variety of flooring. This level of stability and isolation allows the speaker to sing freely without music-robbing resonances.

High-end low mass speaker terminals

Vimberg uses Argento binding posts that might look rather unusual, but serve a great purpose in terms of sound quality. The contact area is pure silver while the rest of the binding post is a polymer that won’t magnetically interfere with the signal. While these binding posts can accept a variety of banana plugs, spade termination on your choice of speaker cable is recommended.
