Do we really need another speaker manufacturer? Really? There seems to be an overabundance of speaker manufacturers in the global market. Many are formulaic. Choose off-the-shelf drivers, whack them into a pretty box —and yes, this element of aesthetics is crucial—solder together a crossover by the proven speaker design cook book and there you go. Done.

There’s no extension of the art involved; no creative engineering, no imaginative design. But given a moderate marketing budget, sharp salesmanship and solid industry contacts, a level of success can be attained to result in adequate market buoyancy.

I’ve seen many such scenarios. But brutal reality eventually catches up. It’s still survival of the fittest. Mediocrity is sifted and filtered by natural audiophile selection.

Redefy Audio, a new Australian company, have launched in a way that will, um… defy the market with products of a differential quality to the cookie-cutter brigade. With its first offerings, the company have brought to market distinctive designs in terms of driver compliments and generous material value for the consumer’s investment. Owner and designer Henry Kristanto comes with decades of experience as an audio enthusiast and music lover. His long-lived participation in audio at a hobby level saw Kristanto gravitate towards high-output/efficiency speakers capable of the full bandwidth. His early designs used conventional dynamic drivers authored with that preferred theme. His crossovers and overall 'voicing' are expressions of a desire for simplicity and ample dynamic range. The importance which Kristanto places on dynamic expression further led him to horns for tweeter loading and the use of rugged high-output professional drivers. It is this journey that now culminated in the launch of Redefy Audio whose latest offering is simply named Two and is the subject of examination here.
