The Goldmund Pulp + Hub: A Marriage of Style and Functionality

  • With over 9 years of experience in journalism, Nemanja Grbic is a reputable news press release writer and journalist in the home theater industry. His sharp journalistic acumen delivers accurate and engaging news, featured in prominent AV publications.

The renowned Swiss luxury audio brand Goldmund has introduced its latest innovation to the market: the Goldmund Pulp + Hub wireless speaker system. Combining striking design with upgraded features, this new system aims to deliver both aesthetic appeal and exceptional audio quality.

At the heart of the Pulp + Hub system lies the Hub, a central component that utilizes WiSA (Wireless Speaker and Audio) technology to enable seamless wireless streaming of high-resolution audio up to 24-bit/96kHz. 

Additionally, the Hub offers support for aptX HD Bluetooth, providing users with multiple connectivity options to suit their preferences. Wired playback is also possible through HDMI, coaxial, and optical inputs, ensuring versatility in setup.

The design of the Hub itself may appear understated, but it serves as the backbone for the system's functionality. Surrounding the Hub are the Pulp speakers, featuring a distinctive cylindrical aluminum silhouette crafted by renowned designer Cécile Barani. One notable design element is the ability to customize the look of the speakers by simply twisting the top section to reveal the drivers beneath the textile grille.

Despite their compact size, the Pulp speakers are equipped to deliver a robust sound experience. Each unit boasts a 12.5cm woofer, soft dome tweeter, and 2 x 175W Telos amplifiers, which should ensure a rich frequency response from 43Hz to over 25kHz. Users can choose between silver grey or matte black finishes for the speakers, both adorned with rotating black grilles.

For those inclined towards a more immersive listening experience, optional custom stands are available for purchase separately, adding a touch of sophistication to the setup.

However, luxury comes at a price, and the Goldmund Pulp + Hub system is no exception. With a retail price of £15,500/$17,000 for the speakers and an additional £3,250/$3,300 for the optional stands, this system caters to audiophiles with discerning tastes and a willingness to invest in premium audio equipment.

Drawing inspiration from Goldmund's iconic Apologue speaker, the Pulp + Hub system seamlessly blends historical design elements with cutting-edge technology, offering both visual appeal and superior performance. Each component is meticulously crafted in Geneva, Switzerland, and shipped in a tailored flight case to ensure the utmost care during transportation.
