TRULY INSPIRED BY THE PASSION AND LOVE FOR MUSIC

Founded in 2010, Stenheim quickly became a leader among Swiss audio brands. Its five founders, Jean-Loup Afresne, Antoine Petroff, Maxime Perrin, Sébastien Benz and David Jilli are all engineers, passionate about sound and music. Prior to launching Stenheim, they worked together at one of the biggest names in audio equipment.

In 2011 – after two years of research and development – Stenheim launched its first range, the Alumine. These compact, all-aluminum speakers were created to be the reference model, to evolve over time to include a full-range system with subwoofer.

Given the Alumine model’s success, the five founders decided in 2013 to expand the young company’s horizons, handing over the company reins to Jean-Pascal Panchard – he too, a music aficionado and engineer by training, who brought extensive experience in the “High End” audio market – including experience gained with leading names in the Swiss audio industry. Since its founding, Stenheim has embodied the values of precision and outstanding quality for which Switzerland is renowned. Inspired by micromechanic and watch-making expertise, we aim to offer very high quality products, with lively, warm audio rendition, and uncompromising design.

WITH STENHEIM, REDISCOVER THE SENSE – AND SENSATION – OF HEARING

Hear the music vibrate and shine as it reveals the musician’s sensitivity and emotion along with the beauty of the composition.

At last, listening is infused with a concert atmosphere, the audience’s energy and enthusiasm. Forget technology – simply experience music.

Made in Switzerland, our speakers combine unparalleled expertise and years of research to bring you exceptional sound.

Some manufacturers focus on the sensory, others on technology. Our approach merges the two, because we understand the relationship between real physical constraints and their impact on the subjective quality of listening. Ignoring the trendy, our products are built to last. This is why we’ve chosen simple elegance and neutral, rich and clear tones, highlighting the beauty of the music and nothing else.

THE ALUMINE REPRESENTS A SUBSTANTIAL DEVIATION FROM CONVENTIONAL SPEAKER DESIGN. WITH ALL ALUMINUM CONSTRUCTION AND HAND MADE BESPOKE CRAFTSMANSHIP IN SWITZERLAND, STENHEIM ENSURES UNRIVALED MUSICALITY AND EMOTIONAL ENGAGEMENT

With high efficiency, the Alumine permits the use of high quality but lower powered amplifiers. Unparalleled speed combined with beautiful and rich tone elevates Stenheim from all too common audiophile fireworks and overhyped, but ultimately fatiguing designs.

With the ability to customize the finish with endless possibilities, aesthetic sentiments are addressed. With no exposed fasteners or screws, our watch industry team has created a fluid and stunning achievement in contemporary speaker design.

In an age of obsessive consumerism and product choice, Stenheim believes in pride of ownership and longevity. And while the Alumine manifests this philosophy, it is truly inspired by the passion and love for     music.

Swiss state of the art design and aesthetic sensibilities pervade the clean and elegant aluminum cabinet. Never before has design and fidelity conspired to yield such ethereal yet tangible results. No ubiquitous and exotic catch words such as diamonds or beryllium need apply, as Stenheim taps into older and long established speaker designing roots. For instance, all drivers are proprietary multilayer cone with textile surrounds mated to extremely powerful magnets, resulting in speed, tonality and beauty.

Some manufacturers focus on the sensory, others on technology. Our approach merges the two because we understand the relationship between real physical constraints and their impact on the subjec- tive quality of listening. Ignoring the trendy, our products are built to stand the test of time. This is why we’ve chosen to design a loudspeak- er which highlights the beauty and sanctity of music over all else.

REFERENCE ULTIME : EQUIPMENT REVIEW

The Audio Beat, US, August 2018 // Roy Gregory

The Stenheim Reference Ultime has leap-frogged a host of well-established competitors to jostle for position right at the head of my To Be Taken Seriously list.

Alpha Audio, NL, April 2018 // Jaap Veenstra

“The real magic of this speaker is in the focusing, layering and vocal presentation. We can say that this monitor excels perfectly in those areas. Voices are unprecedentedly realistic and stable between the speakers and possess a frightening realism.”

ALUMINE FIVE : LISTENING BY ART DUDLEY

Stereophile, US,  March 2018 // Art Dudley

” The Alumine Five sets itself apart by offering traditional high-end audio strengths, very wide bandwidth, excellent spatial performance, and freedom from gross colorations, with the drivability and consequent good levels of touch, force, and musical momentum that are seldom associated with loudspeakers of contemporary design and manufacture. ”

ALUMINE FIVE : TEST

Hifi Statement, Germany, 18.12.2017 // Dirk Sommer

” Die Alumine Five gibt sich wie erwartet ausgesprochen detailverliebt und profiliert sich als akkurater Full-Range-Monitor, auf den ich mich bei der Bearbeitung von Aufnahmen gern verlassen habe. Mit ihrer packenden Dynamik, der mitreißenden Spielfreude und dem bestens konturierten, satten und ungemein lebendigen Tieftonbereich hat sie mich erst überrascht und dann begeistert. Bei Stenheim seht der Spaß am Musikhören an erster Stelle! ”

VISITING STENHEIM LOUDSPEAKERS

The Audio Beat, US, April 2017 // Roy Gregory

” On first listen it looks like the Stenheim Alumine Five might just be that holy grail of loudspeaker design: a speaker that is genuinely neutral and revealing of musical purpose, using its resolution and transparency to cut to the heart of the intent behind the performance rather than the quality and nature of the recording that captured it. With enough bandwidth to deliver scale and impact, yet agile enough to respond to the most delicate musical input, the Five promises to be — just like the perfect middleweight — one of the best pound-for-pound musical transducers I’ve heard.

As a friend of mine is fond of saying, “Something happened. Something happened and we were lucky enough that somebody captured it.” If you are lucky, your system will tell you what it was that happened. Listening to the Alumine Fives leaves no doubt that something definitely happened. With a pair promised for review at the end of the year, I can hardly wait. ”

ALUMINE FIVE : COVER FEATURE

Audiotechnique, Hong Kong, July 2017 // Lee 388

(Google english translation of chinese text)

” After I had set a good position for it, and after several weeks of comprehensive testing, hey, it did not fail to live up to the brand’s reputation. It was absolutely brilliant and the results were excellent. Alumine FIVE is the most amazing In addition to its common dry, cold, and hard sound characteristics, which is based on the use of a sound box built entirely of aluminum alloy and without a half-dot metal box speaker, its 1 magnetic soft film tweeter is from the Danish factory Scan-Speak special custom product, but under the overall play, the high frequency of that kind of transparent, calm, delicate, crystal clear and flowing feeling actually made me feel like listening to a diamond tweeter. The design skills of the party’s development team are unfathomable! Under the background of extraordinary treble, Alumine FIVE’s mid-range area produces an exquisite charm. It has both good and wonderful lines, as well as clear lines. The sound density is extremely high. Whether replaying vocals or instrumental music, the unique texture of the sound and the extension of the harmonics have a high level of performance, and there is no deterrence. Therefore, the degree of truth is very good. As for the low-frequency rebroadcast, Alumine FIVE also surprised me. The effect of the replay of the dual 10-inch woofers and the carefully modulated independent sound room is unexpected. It is deep enough, it responds extremely quickly, and it has a sufficient amount of sense. , The replay of drumming music and the flourishing of the music of the big scenes are the most heard of many Hi-End speakers in this magazine! ”

ALUMINE TWO : FIRST SOUNDS

The Audio Beat, UK, March 2017 // Roy Gregory

” If you need a compact speaker that allows your music to breathe, that’s big on expression, big on intimacy and communication but isn’t phased by big or loud, then the Alumine 2 could be just what you’re looking for. Other brands might make more noise about (and with) their aluminium boxes, but for me, right now it’s the Stenheims that are the ones delivering the musical goods. ”

ALUMINE FIVE : BEST OF SHOW CONTENDER

TAS, US, Highend Munich, May 2016 // Jonathan Valin

“Stenheim showed its €50k Alumine Five four-driver three-way with Audio Consulting turntable, preamp, phono amp, and amp, Nagra digital, and Brandt cable from Geneva. This was quite a remarkable setup as I heard things through it that I hadn’t heard as clearly on anything else, such as Paul’s fingering of Sebastian (his twelve-string casket-style guitar) on my PP&M LP. A Best of Show contender, for sure.”

REFERENCE STATEMENT : PRIVATE LISTENING

Audiophile Magazine, France , June 2015 // Jean-Marc Villafranca

“ Autant le système fait preuve de tempérance et de rigueur sur le classique autant sur de la musique pop  il devient assez jubilatoire. Le live de Hotel California des Eagles a fait bouger des pieds dans la salle, c’est sur. Cette façon de proposer un son juste en avant des enceintes rapproche l’auditeur de la musique, c’est palpable, vivant et joyeux. Bravo.”

Day 3: High End 2015 Hits Its Stride

” On Ben Webster Meets Oscar Peterson, I experienced a mildly euphonic and thoroughly enjoyable presentation where highs seemed true and brass had requisite bite. The system sounded absolutely marvelous reproducing trained operatic voices and full orchestra, and nailed huge percussive thwacks like nobody’s business. It was just the kind of warm sound that many audiophiles relish, except that it also had the slam and bite of the best systems. Word has it that the channels were inexplicably reversed until the last day of the show, but that didn’t stop this set-up from sounding fantastic.”
