Hi,

I bought floor stand speakers (150W x 2 RMS) and a 100Wx2 RMS amplifier (Model: STA 662) from Audiocraft on Oct '07. Price: Speaker units: Rs. 7,000; Amplifier: Rs. 6000.

Speakers are working good with soft bass, optimum mid range and good high frequency response. There is no rattling at maximum volume. Each box consists of a 12" woofer, 5" mid range, and 1" inch dome tweeter (Philips). Speaker and crossover components are procured from various sources and assembled by Audiocraft.

Dimensions of speaker units: 37" x 13.5" x 12" (HxWxD)

Speakers at various configurations are available at Audiocraft and they make according to your needs.

Contact information:

Mr. Murugesan
Audiocraft
Pudupet
Phone: 044 28521243
Mobile: 9282102357

Hope this information will be helpful.

Regards,
Muthusami. S

Hi,

I forgot to mention about the demo materials. They don't have proper demo materials. It would be nice to carry some demo CDs with you.

I visited Audiocraft's office chennai. Mr.Murugesan gave me demo of their amps and speakers. To keep it simple, I would say Craftel is very satisfying for the price. You will get a near-audiophile quality with their products.

Also I have written a detailed review here.

Yep, as muthu says, take some CDs that you usually listen, with you. That will help you to judge the quality.

Hi Rajesh,

I want to share you the information about Audiocraft. After Murugesan, his son, Mark (mobile no. 98410 23957) is continuing the business. Today I contacted one of their staff about the business and got this info.

Can you please post some pictures of the floorstanders you got?
It would give us an idea about their products.....since Audiocraft doesn't have a website.

Thanks in advance,

Hi Muthu & Rajesh,

Do they have Amplifiers with Remote Control?

Regards,
Ramesh

During the visits of my purchase of floorstanders and amplifier, Murugesan was doing the R&D of home theater systems with remote. By this time, I hope Mark would have finished the design and made available for purchase. They also do custom designs according to your needs and specifications. You can reach Mark at 9841023957.

Regards,
Muthu

Muthu,
Question about the photos you posted at: Picasa Web Albums - Muthusami - Craftel
In the 1st pic, the speakers look all black while in the last two, the speakers are cherry in color.
Are both the same model: Craftel floorstanders - 150W RMS; 12" Craftel woofer; 5" Eastern midrange; 1" Philips dome tweeter.
Another question: does Audiocraft make small bookshelf too?
Thanks,
~dich

Hi,

All pictures are from same floorstanders. The first picture is the speakers covered with black speaker cloth. In other pictures, the covers were removed to display the speakers.

Yes. Audiocraft makes wide range of speakers including book shelf, satellites, floorstanders, sub woofers. They also make custom speakers according to your required specifications.

Muthusami. S

dear muthu,
i am really impressed with your speakers with 12'''' drives. but why are they not spiked at the bottom as most of the imported speakers. may be it will improve the sound.

Hi,

Thanks for your opinion. I have not opted for the spikes. Yes, as you say it may improve the sound, but due to budget constraints, I haven't asked for it. Anyway, Mark will be happy to do your custom design with spikes. I suggest you to contact Mark by phone instead of email to get a quick update.

Regards,
Muthusami. S
