Model One AS-3 Reference Pro

2-way bookshelf speaker system.


The popular choice. Gives up the most minuscule of focus for a fullness of sound and most beguiling mid-range tone. They won’t hurt your pocket, but they will pull strongly on your heartstrings!
The Model One AS-3 Reference Pro speaker uses exactly the same in-house drive units as the Monitor but in a slightly larger cabinet to give a more rich delivery.
With Contrast Audio speakers the age old cliché of PRaT (Pace, Rhythm and Timing) truly stands out and music sounds as it was intended to- fun and bouncy, smooth and silky, even menacing- the Model One will do it all!
