CT 240 - or should we call this speaker Snow White? Apart from this CT240 version there is also a revised CT230 called CT240. Hence, we call this version Snow White. The speaker comprises a Mivoc XGH 258 Alu tweeter and two small XAW 110 bass drivers, surrounding the tweeter.

Excerpt from the review in Klang+Ton 3/2008:
... "It became immediately apparent that positioning this speaker is a bit tricky. Once pointed slightly towards the listener the Cheap Trick reveals astounding talents: lots of attention to detail and pin-point accuracy. Moreover, the bass is pleasantly reserved - but vigorous and mighty when necessary. If placed closer to the rear wall the bass becomes even a touch more generous, but remains accurate. The midrange discloses lots of musical information and finest nuances. On the one hand there is plenty excitement and musicality and on the other hand enough detail to please even the most demanding connoisseur. The high frequencies, using the suggested crossover, were just right for me: unobtrusive and perfectly integrated into the total presentation and with an audiophile touch. The perfect tonal balance also creates a beautiful ambience: from the first note the Mivoc's disappear totally behind the three-dimensional presentation - such a magnificent depth and width with simultaneous liveliness and dynamics I have never experienced with such small and reasonably priced speaker. Snow White is not just beautiful, she is also capable." ...
