Visaton Starlet - price per pair.
The Starlet uses very good quality drive units to achieve a well balanced and realistic sound from and attractive sized cabinet.Characteristics and sound properties
The STARLET is a 3-way speaker which is extremely good value for money. The individual drivers used here have all proved their worth in numerous well-known constructions. At the bottom end of the frequency range, there is the W 200 S 8 Ohm from the EXPERIENCE V 20, mounted in a 58 litre vented cabinet. The mid- to high-range is covered by the W 100 S 8 Ohm and DT 94 8 Ohm from the ALTO series of speakers. The impression given by the STARLET is of a solid low-frequency foundation with powerful, crisp bass. The mid-range has a pleasant, unobtrusive sound, and at the higher frequency ranges the STARLET produces sparkling, clear-cut treble. In a nutshell, the STARLET is an extremely reasonably priced column speaker with a well-rounded tonal character and good power handling capabilities.

Extract from Mega
"The Starlet sounds … crisp, pleasant and well-rounded, … but with a solid bass foundation that ensures sufficient power and depth but without becoming overpowering. The mid- and high-ranges were well distinguished, clearly defined, devoid of all aggression and crisply reproduced."

The construction of the STARLET has been designed to provide a good starting point for even the least experienced craftsman since all the boards are straight sides and just glued together. The cover for the mid-range (AK 10.13) has to be fitted from behind over the cut-out in the baffle for the mid-range, before the baffle is glued in (remember the cables!) The crossover unit is attached to the rear panel behind the cut-out in the baffle for the bass speakers.
The damping material is evenly distributed throughout the entire cabinet. But leave the area directly behind the bass tube free. About 1/4 of a mat of damping material is loosely pushed into the cover before the mid-range drivers are fitted.
