Speaker technology

Breathtaking sound

Our most advanced loudspeaker to date! When only the highest fidelity matters most. Featuring our proprietary DPC-Array controlling Mid/High frequencies and centered by our finest 28mm Beryllium dome and dual 28mm TPCD ultra-lightweight domes. All transducers are developed from the ground up by our engineers, based on decades of research and culminating in this world class design. All S Series speakers share the same DPC-Array and benefit from our unique timbre matching technique. The entire series utilizes our Beryllium dome tweeters and our advanced Carbon fiber bass/mid drivers. These speakers can be configured as bass reflex or acoustic suspension to meet the demands of any listening room for true full-range performance with unparalleled dynamic range and musical finesse.

Thin Ply Carbon Diaphragm

The (TPCD) TexTreme carbon fiber used in our midrange drive units is also the key to the performance of our woofers, resulting in lighter-than-air dynamics and the impact you expect in a flagship Speaker that can play down to 20Hz in-room. This technology is 30% lighter than standard carbon fiber of the same thickness, with increased strength from using the unique process of stacking multiple layers. The unique weave is unmistakable and distributes break-up modes without sharp response peaks, while extending bandwidth. Simply perfect.

Directivity Pattern Control

DPC (Patent Pending) – We teamed up with companies in the USA and Sweden to bring modern materials technology to hi-fi, utilizing advanced Comsol acoustic modeling.  The DPC array is the result of 18 months of painstaking simulations.  We just love it and think you will, too.

Beryllium, covering the widest bandwidth up to ultrasonic frequencies, our finest 28mm Beryllium dome takes center stage. Beryllium is one of the strongest materials known to man and does not suffer from the typical harsh break-up modes of other metals due to its outstanding damping characteristics.  Accurate, undistorted, and revealing.

TPCD Carbon Fiber – The Beryllium tweeter is flanked by our dual 28mm TPCD ultra-lightweight Carbon fiber midrange domes.  Allowing the crossover point to extend more than an octave lower than typical domes,  fast, lightweight and without beaming caused by larger diaphragms.

Waveguide lens – all of this technology wouldn’t be worth it without the waveguide orchestrating the directional characteristics of the array.   Presenting a coherent wavefront, while optimizing early reflections and sound power, to bring vocal reproduction to an altogether new level.

Superior quality

It takes more than just world-class materials to make world-class sound. It takes quality that lets you know that your speakers will never fail you in the middle of a dynamic crescendo or when experiencing the delicate subtlety of a triangle in your favorite orchestra. We demand this from our products, so you don’t have to.
