To never stop improving has been part of the Audio Physic philosophy since day one, and the new Classic 25 is a good example of that approach. We incorporated many solutions, materials, and technologies originally developed for our Reference Line to create an affordable loudspeaker that comes very close to our top-of-the-line speakers in terms of acoustic performance.
Like its predecessor, the successful Classic 20, the Classic 25 uses our unique Sandwich Cabinet Construction. This consists of a strong internal core to which back-painted glass panels are glued from the outside with elastic acrylate adhesive stripes. Because of the completely different resonance characteristics of glass and MDF, and the damping properties of the elastic acrylate, vibrations of any kind are very effectively subdued, unwanted ‘cabinet sound’ is simply not an issue any more.
The adhesive stripes also provide an exactly defined gap between the core and the outside panels, with a sound-insulating effect similar to that of double-glazed windows: There is no transmission of sound from the inside of the cabinet to the outside other than what comes out of the front of the drivers themselves. The overall effect is simple but stunning: What you hear is not the speaker but just pure music.
Another unbeatable advantage of these glass panels is their extremely durable high-gloss surface that’s vastly superior to any conventional paint finish. Even after many years they will look as pristine as when they were new, having lost nothing at all of their brilliance and depth.
The Classic 25 inherits another design specialty from the Classic 20 – the invisible Subwoofer. This is placed in its own volume inside the internal cabinet, the bass-reflex vent is located at the bottom of the cabinet, opening towards the speakers plinth. A piece of high-tech Ceramic Foam in front of the opening prevents undesirable chuffing noises common to other bass-reflex designs. However, the woofer inside the Classic 25 has grown in size compared to its predecessor: It now measures 8 inches in diameter, providing a significant improvement in low-end performance.
All other drivers represent the current state-of-the-art for our Classic Line, too. The midrange driver sports the unique Audio Physic Dual Basket Design, a woven glass-fibre diaphragm and a Phase Plug mounted directly onto the magnet motor to help with heat management inside the driver. The attention to detail that went into this driver is especially important as the human ear is very susceptible in the frequency range covered by it because this is where most of the human voice happens. The clarity and naturalness of this drive unit’s sound are unrivalled in this price range.
The magnetic motor of the Classic 25’s tweeter is elaborately ventilated as well, so that the soft dome made by a German specialist company always finds ideal operating conditions even under heavy load. Thanks to the powerful motor and the low self-resonance, the tweeter achieves exemplary signal integrity far beyond the audible range. A small horn-shaped sound guide surrounds the actual dome and ensures a seamless transition between mid and high frequencies. So even outside of the so-called sweet spot you will be able to enjoy a relaxed musical experience.
All in all out new Classic 25 is a significant improvement from the already very good Classic 20. It’s so good, in fact, that in terms of acoustic performance it comes very close to some of our REFERENCE Line speakers like the Avanti. Within its actual price range, the Classic 25 is without doubt a class of its own.

We are an approved retailer for all brands sold on our website, which means full manufacturers warranty and support as well as detailed product knowledge within our small business.
We use an inventory tracking system which states if item(s) are in stock and if not, what are the likely lead times.

We do ask for some patience during lockdown - we're working remotely from home and travel to the warehouse each day to fulfil orders. If item's aren't in stock - we can usually get them within a couple of days.
We're a small business that's been impacted massively due to COVID-19 and have such had a significant reduction in orders. We're focussing on core products and services with less frequent products being ordered "on demand".
When will orders be dispatched?

- Orders placed over a weekend and are in stock will be dispatched on Monday.
Orders for items not in stock
Given the vast amount of variations of each product (e.g. AudioQuest cables) or Pro-Ject Audio Turntables - we keep the most common options in stock (i.e. gloss black finish, or 1.5m RCA cables) whereas longer cables or cables with terminations that are less frequently ordered will be ordered as required.
Generally speaking - we receive orders within 2-3 days for UK suppliers and 3-4 days for European suppliers (i.e. AudioQuest, DALI).
We want you to be 100% satisfied which is why we'll give you an email/call if item(s) aren't in stock and give you the option of changing the order, cancelling or if you're happy to wait a few days, we'll get it out as soon as possible.
If an item states 'Available to order. Usually dispatched within 48 hours' - this means the item is not in stock but we are able to order in. Lead times average 2 days but in some circumstances, delivery times may be longer and is outside of our control. Please contact us to get an estimate on delivery times if orders are urgent.
Who do you use for delivery?
Our primary delivery agent is DHL. Where orders are shipped directly from Yorkshire AV, we always use DHL who offer a fabulous service at competitive rates.
If we drop ship (i.e. direct from the supplier) then the delivery agent is out of our control. It is generally DPD or UPS however - we rarely see other carriers used.
