"I am a harmonious one; I am a clear singer. I am an artificer; I am a scientific one." – Taliesin 6th century

This loudspeaker has its origin in the very first beginning of Trenner & Friedl.

Even before! More than 25 years ago, Andreas Friedl designed a very big (and we mean BIG) loudspeaker for his own use, a reference, a giant of joy.

When he and Peter Trenner founded the brand, Taliesin (the grey) stayed with Peter for many years. It was the benchmark for all coming loudspeakers.

Now the 25th anniversary is on the horizon, and the friends did not want celebrate without a Taliesin. The task was to make a worthy successor of the awesome forefather.
It shall bear strength without limits, it shall be a bard, a fine spirit, a benchmark itself.
