ZERO 1 XD

A revolution in active horn loudspeaker design.
A milestone in the development of fully digital high-end systems.

A New Era in High-End Audio

„XD“ is a synonym for Xtreme Digital. This indicates, that all new Avantgarde XD products are now DSP controlled and fully programmable in the low frequency. It also possible to perfectly optimize the frequency response to the room. An incredble and powerful tool for every audiophile and those that simply want the best!


UPDATE:  instead of ZERO 1 and ZERO 1 PRO we now have one model XD changes: XD version is derived from the ZERO 1 PRO with pre-mounted AD-board.

In addition, the XD version will include an ultra flexible “band- less“ EQ.


More integrated, compact and simple, and yet a veritable horn loudspeaker. The ZERO 1 is a dream come true—one that we have shared with many friends of our horn loudspeaker factory for over twenty years. After all, as fascinated, moved and amazed as we may be by our larger acoustic transducers, we have always longed for a more compact horn loudspeaker to make the incomparable experience of Avantgarde Acoustic accessible to a wider audience of audio enthusiasts.

The ZERO 1 opens up this new road with a revolutionary design, simplified shape, hassle-free setup and fully integrated processor and amplifier technology.


Bionic horn loudspeakers meet 66-bit FPGA processing

— it can’t be any less uncompromising or trailblazing than this!

A full-fledged spherical wave horn system, the ZERO 1 has all of the tonal advantages provided by the horn technology—the most original and natural acoustic transducer principle. The diaphragms, which are much smaller than those of conventional loudspeakers, have less moving mass, which translates into reduced inertia. This results in a sound characterized above all by its effortlessness, absence of distortion and explosive vitality—with a phenomenal efficiency of 104 dB.

The NEW Semi Active Version Available.

Avantgarde Acoustic ZERO TA

THE ZERO TA.

6 OCTAVE HORN COVERAGE
104 dB SENSITIVITY
500 WATT AMPLIFIER WITH DSP


The ZERO TA is the spherical horn unit of the awarded ZERO body in a combination of passive midrange/tweeter horn section and DSP controlled active subwoofer. Designed for customers who like to operate the minimalist design concept of the ZERO with analog sources and their own amplifiers.

For vinyl and tube lovers a perfect entry into the world of semi-active horn systems.

The 400mm spherical midrange horn has a wide bandwidth down to 250 Hz. The frequency range of the horns thus covers a range of 6 octaves. With a sensitivity of 104 dB a perfect match for low powered tube amplifiers.


The active bassreflex subwoofer supplements the balance between spherical horn performance and low frequency reproduction. It is actuated by a 12 inch long–excursion driver powered by an integ- rated 500 watt amplifier.


Frequency control in the low frequencies is managed by an ad- vanced digital sound processor. The digitally controlled frequency crossover ensure a seamless integration of the bass response
to the spherical horns. The DSP is equipped with 10 parametric equalizers to fine control the sound to the customer ́s taste and to the acoustics of the room.
