Alta Audio FRM-2 SpeakersRibbon Perfection
By Jeff Dorgay
The arrival of the Alta Audio FRM-2 loudspeakers exposed a certain prejudice or bias of mine against ribbon tweeters. But it’s a valid one, as I’d never heard a ribbon tweeter that was properly integrated with the rest of the drivers in the system, nor had I ever experienced a ribbon tweeter with a natural high end. My audio pals with a penchant for razor-sharp transients swear by them, but I’d always come away from them fatigued. So I must admit that when I was unpacking these scrumptious speakers, my heart sank just a little bit.
