    Dynaudio Confidence C4

    Dynaudio Confidence C4

    • Speaker Technology: Dynamic
    • Speaker Type: Floor standing
    Acoustic excellence requires sound architectural considerations for every detail: With the Confidence C4, Dynaudio succeeded in a no-compromise realization of the ambitious Confidence concept.

    From the lavish overall construction right down to the smallest detail, it is always the sonic performance that takes center stage.

    Aesthetically pure yet technically advanced – the C4 combines a unique slim cabinet with an innovative baffle design. In the Confidence, a completely new design-concept defines the front of the loudspeaker as a design element in its own right. The multiple-layer high-density baffle yields extremely low-resonance and de-couples the loudspeaker drivers from the cabinet itself.

    Dynaudio Excite X12

    Dynaudio Excite X12

    • Speaker Technology: Dynamic
    • Speaker Type: Stand mounted
    Musical purity and the highest resolution: The Dynaudio Excite X12 provides high-end sound from an ultracompact enclosure.

    Even the smallest nuances are reproduced precisely and authentically. The silky-smooth yet extremely detailed high frequency performance is due to the further improved Dynaudio specially coated soft dome tweeter, a legend in its own right. It is mounted as close as possible to the mid/bass driver in order to achieve the most precise soundstage, acting as an ideal one-point source of sound – where music simply sounds right. This is also achieved through the finely tuned crossover which, as in every Excite model, features ceramic resistors, air-copper-coils and high quality internal cabling. The impedance is constant and linear over the entire frequency range, thus providing an easy load to any amplifier.
    The strict use of highly rigid die-cast aluminium driver baskets in all Excite models further enables a clear, pure, undistorted reproduction of music to be achieved.

Thanks to the quality of its construction, it’s capable of producing a sound that’s a match for its bigger brothers.

    The partnership of a 130mm Kevlar® cone bass/midrange driver with a Nautilus™ tube-loaded aluminium dome tweeter helps the speaker handle musical detail with ease across the full frequency spectrum. Despite the size of the speaker, the CM1’s bass is always deep and under control thanks to the CM Series’ magnet and voice coil system technology, which keeps distortion to a minimum.

    The quality of CM Series drive units has made it possible to use minimalist crossovers throughout the whole range. The resulting gentle transition between drivers avoids the unnaturally rapid changes in dispersion that bedevil more complex designs, while the high quality components, carefully chosen after exhaustive listening tests, ensure that as little as possible gets between you and the sound of the original recording.

    Wilson Audio Duette

    Wilson Audio Duette

    • Speaker Technology: Dynamic
    • Speaker Type: Stand mounted
    It's small enough to sit on a table or to fit in a bookshelf. You might be tempted to call it a bookshelf speaker. You'd be half right.Duette is the latest Special Applications product from Wilson Audio. It was designed to offer the timbral neutrality, dynamic response, soundstage depth, and transparency of floor-standing Wilson loudspeakers, but to do so in environments (such as against walls or in bookshelves) which are intrinsically hostile to all of those qualities. Then, it was given a dual personality so that it could succeed as a stand-mounted loudspeaker as well. (from http://www.wilsonaudio.com/product/duette/)

    Audio Physic Avanti V

    Audio Physic Avanti V

    • Speaker Technology: Dynamic
    • Speaker Type: Floor standing
    With Audio Physic’s brand-new successor to the venerable loudspeaker, every unit and technical aspect has undergone rigorous testing procedures. The AVANTI V has gone into production with a completely new cabinet design, new drivers and crossovers while at the same time remaining true to the three-and-a-half way system with four side-firing 7" woofers. Needless to say that Audio Physic's cutting-edge knowledge on driver technology, gained over the past six years since the last re-design of the AVANTI, has been applied to the new loudspeaker. The exception is the tweeter system where the so called Hyper-Holographic-Cone tweeter, a new and most recent development by Audio Physic, provides highs in a new dimension. The key question was, after the tedium of innumerable and finally unsatisfactory listening sessions with a variety of different systems, what arguments are against the use of a cone, an excellent membrane choice for all other frequency ranges. The answer: nothing except old-fashioned views dating back to the era of cheap tweeters of an almost unbelievably bad quality mounted in loudspeakers sold off the supermarket shelves. When coupled with state-of-the-art technology ranging from a magnet system built of four Neodymium plates to ceramic coated aluminium diaphragms, cone tweeters as well as high frequency reproduction pioneer new standards and create a new definition. A viable method to ensure seamless integration and smooth transition to the midrange area without the occurrence of a specific coloration known from other systems. Instruments are reproduced with their own characteristic upper spectrum where the sound character is not modified by self  induced ringing of the tweeter. Several years of development culminated in the production of a tweeter which is virtually inaudible. Now that is luxury!

    Dynaudio Focus 140

    Dynaudio Focus 140

    • Speaker Technology: Dynamic
    • Speaker Type: Floor standing
    The Focus 140 embodies all of the virtues in Dynaudio’s long-standing tradition of high-performance compact loudspeakers: Highly evolved Dynaudio technology, meticulously selected components, painstakingly matched materials and carefully voiced sonics. Every technical detail is developed and manufactured exclusively by Dynaudio.

    One example is the sophisticated cross-over designed for the Focus 140, which unifies the speaker drivers to deliver a seamless and homogenous presentation. Air-coils wound with the purest copper, high-grade Solen capacitors and zero temperature drift ceramic resistors provide the absolute purity essential for natural music reproduction. To achieve a seamless transition between bass and treble, Dynaudio cross-overs always feature simple 1st order filters (6dB/octave).
    These networks deliver a superior transient response, which further improves dynamics with lively music recordings.

    Dynaudio Focus 200 C

    Dynaudio Focus 200 C

    • Speaker Technology: Dynamic
    Only when the sonic balance of all speakers is the same, will there be a true room-filling audio experience. To achieve such an authentic sound balance, the driver technology used for the Focus 200 C Center channel loudspeaker is of the same very high standard as that employed in the Focus floor standing and stand-mount speakers. After all, such sophisticated technology for a center speaker is fully justified if one considers that more than 75 percent of the sound in a multi-channel production is directed to the center channel.

    Two matching 15 cm mid/bass drivers using Esotec+ technology are employed in the Focus 200 C. These use an optimized double-magnet system so that dynamic impulses can be reproduced precisely and undistorted, even at high volume levels. Impressive sound quality and high power handling capability are achieved through Dynaudio’s characteristically large lightweight aluminium voice-coils and the torsionally stiff, low turbulence die-cast aluminium speaker basket frames. A typical attribute of the MSP cone diaphragms is their freedom of coloration: This keeps voices realistic and open, criteria essential for a high quality center channel.
    For the Focus 200 C center channel loudspeaker, Dynaudio’s renowned soft-dome tweeter, specially treated with proprietary ferro-fluid to ensure perfect dome behavior, is used for the high frequency reproduction. Both complex sound effects and fine details are easily reproduced yet fit the overall sound character perfectly. The magnetic shielding accommodates the center channel’s preferred positioning near the video display.

    Wilson Audio Watt/Puppy System 8

    • Speaker Technology: Dynamic
    • Speaker Type: Floor standing
    The loudspeaker practically synonymous with Wilson Audio, in continuous production since 1988, has entered into its Series 8 iteration with its own bold proclamation: you can have beauty and accuracy. Or more precisely, you can have the visceral and emotive experience of live music, which is the sum of myriad cues—some measurable, others essential to making the hairs on the back of your neck tingle with auditory pleasure.This magical synergy is the sum of many details: A new tweeter (from the MAXX 2). A new WATT enclosure constructed from an innovative combination of X material (prized for its lack of coloration and resonance) and M material (prized for its midrange clarity) in a sophisticated internal bracing configuration. MAXX Series 2 crossover technology, now employed in System 8, achieves greater top-to-bottom coherence along with greater bass linearity, impact, and speed.

    Dynaudio Excite X36

    • Speaker Technology: Dynamic
    • Speaker Type: Floor standing
    The Dynaudio Excite X36 delivers large scale musical pleasure. Powerful dynamics and exacting depth create an impressive soundstage.
    Musical instruments, vocals and audio effects are reproduced with absolute life-like authenticity.

    This large floor-standing loudspeaker comprises an optimized 3-way system with a dual woofer array. Thanks to the ensuing large membrane surface and the twin magnets, plus a separate dedicated midrange driver, music and sound effects are perfectly projected into the room – to be heard and to be felt. This requires that the loudspeaker have ample dimensions since only though a large cabinet volume can such a realistic and believable volume be achieved.
    The highly rigid low resonance construction of the X36 is equally essential in order to authentically reproduce the highest volume levels. The stable plinth with removable spikes ensures a safe yet stable footing on any floor.

    With the extremely powerful Dynaudio Excite X36 music will be relived in all its depth.

    • Speaker Technology: Dynamic
    • Speaker Type: Stand mounted

    This reference monitor takes the best of the original Monitor 40 even further, and is optimised for home use - producing a tight, dynamic and incredibly revealing presentation.

    Designer Alan Shaw has created a speaker which is completely transparent and paints a 3D holographic sound stage which is totally addictive for its neutrality. (View videos of the speaker's careful development in the Harbeth Research Centre.)

    The flagship Harbeth of the Harbeth family is the new Monitor 40.1, developed from the hugely respected Monitor 40 widely used in the sound editing and broadcast industry as a control room monitor - and at home around the world.  The inspiration of the M40.1 design is the BBC LS5/5 the world's first plastic-coned three-way loudspeaker. Although originally developed for professional use in BBC control rooms where many pairs are in use, the Monitor 40/40.1 have been adopted as a domestic reference system, and where space permits brings the ultimate in natural sound to the serious home listener.

Never compromising performance for design elegance, the VS300 offers a unique switch selectable EQ for wall-mount settings to compensate for "wall-bounce" effects.  An optional desktop base turns the system into a compact mini tower.

Despite its smaller volume and footprint, the 802D actually yields surprisingly little to its larger brethren in terms of bass extension and there is ample output capability for the majority of applications. Although the styling is clearly based on its predecessor, the Nautilus™ 802, it has been revised and enhanced by changes to the plinth, the underside of the cabinet and the way the tweeter sits on the midrange enclosure. For those who prefer to operate the speaker with the grille in place, its curving profile detail lifts the whole look of the cabinet.

The CONCEPT 10 can play LOUD and then some - but playing loud was never our intention with this speaker. We wanted to make a speaker that would be able to give you HI-FI sound AND play loud. And the 2 x 10" bass drivers, 8" midrange and 1" tweeter do just that.This is a speaker that will give you real DALI high quality sound reproduction at the same time as it will be able to wake up, not just your next door neighbour, but the entire neighbourhood - not that we recommend you try - but if you wanted to, you could - and you would still enjoy great sound quality. (from http://dali-speakers.com/display_content.php/INT/speakers.html/150/1104)

    According to a press release, Murrieta, CA hi-fi manufacturer Von Schweikert Audio is introducing the UniField Model Three loudspeaker, designed to perform optimally in smaller rooms where large loudspeakers are both inconvenient and sonically out of their element. In particular, Von Schweikert designed the UniField Three with an eye toward mitigating problems with boundary reflections and standing waves—problems that can be especially noticeable in small-room listening environments. The release says that the UniField Three has a controlled dispersion pattern that produces a three-dimensional sound with depth and focus—even in small living spaces—thanks to exacting driver selection and a carefully chosen crossover topology. (from http://www.avguide.com/article/von-schweikert-audio-unveils-unifield-three-loudspeaker)

From the front, the VR-9SE is not particularly intimidating, being only 50” tall and 11” wide in front. However, the 350 lb. weight per side curb-weight and 30” depth makes you realize this isn't your average floor-standing speaker.

    Traditionally, the EUPHONIA MS4 would be called a 2½ way bass reflex speaker with its 2 x 6.5" bass/midrange woofers and the proprietary DALI ribbon/soft dome hybrid tweeter module. However, as the dome and the ribbon do not cover the same frequency range, one could call it a 2½ plus ½ way.

    Dynaudio Focus 110

    Dynaudio Focus 110

    • Speaker Technology: Dynamic
    • Speaker Type: Floor standing
    The basis of the Focus 110 is the extremely solid cabinet construction. The asymmetrical form of the cabinet takes shape with sidewalls that gently taper towards the back, contributing additional rigidity to the assembly. In principle, this further prevents unwanted resonance and its detrimental effects. The end result is pure and untainted sound reproduction free of coloration.

    The Esotec+ technology is also prominently featured in the smallest model of the Focus range. The integrated D 280 tweeter with its coated 28mm soft dome fascinates with its incredibly detailed resolution of the high frequencies – a level of performance for which Dynaudio has become renowned.

    Another element typical of Dynaudio is the diffraction-optimized shape of the new Esotec+ mid/bass driver. Its cone’s characteristic curvature further aids imaging so that even at short listening distances or in a smaller room a realistic, true three-dimensional sound-stage can be enjoyed.
    In relation to the total cone surface area, the voice-coil is exceptionally large in diameter, allowing a most precise conversion of the amplifier’s signal to music. The result is uncompromi-sed, direct music enjoyment.

    The 130mm diameter Kevlar® cone bass/midrange is based on a tried-and-trusted B&W design, but its new fixed centre bullet helps to smooth the response in upper frequencies. Also, by setting the bass/midrange closer to the tweeter than in equivalent earlier speakers, we have improved the integration and vertical dispersion of sound from the two units. The 
    Nautilus™ tube-loaded, aluminium dome tweeter, featuring a new surround material to improve spaciousness and imaging, adds needle-sharp top end all the way to 50kHz and beyond.

    The skilfully implemented sound balance deceives the ear into thinking that this little speaker must be much larger than it is - which is why it is widely used as a near-field reference monitor.

    Descended directly from the Harbeth BBC LS3/5A, the HL-P3ES2 has been in production for nearly 20 years, almost equalling that of the LS3/5A itself. It is, quite simply, the best all-round mini-monitor. When coupled to good quality electronics, the P3ES2 still continues to set the world standard for miniature monitors. At the heart of this successful design was bettering the bass performance of its predecessor and reducing coloration which is now at a level remarkable for a cabinet of such small dimensions. This design has stood the test of time excelling in the cohesion of sound stage, pin-sharp image positioning and remarkable 'big sound' - all from a small cabinet. Ideal in a small room or where space is at a premium. Also makes perfect rear channel speakers.

Essentially, the EUPHONIA MS5 is a three-way bass reflex speaker with 2 x 8" bass woofers, 1x 6.5” midrange driver and DALI´s proprietary ribbon/soft dome hybrid tweeter module. In fact, it is more a three-and-a half-way design, as the dome and the ribbon do not cover the same frequency range. The Hybrid Tweeter Module and the paper/woodfiber cone drivers are core DALI technologies and the heart of the EUPHONIA Series. Same core technologies are emplyed throughout the DALI speaker range.

    • Speaker Technology: Dynamic
    • Speaker Type: Stand mounted
    For hi-fi or home cinema in small to medium-sized rooms, you need a loudspeaker that doesn’t take up floor area, but whose sound can still command the space. You’ll find the 685, which can sit on a shelf, table, stand or wall-mount, an inspired choice.

    Its 165mm diameter Kevlar® cone bass/midrange is based on a tried-and-trusted B&W design, but its new fixed centre bullet helps to smooth the response in upper frequencies. Also, by setting the bass/midrange closer to the tweeter than in equivalent earlier speakers, we have improved the integration and vertical dispersion of sound from the two units. The Nautilus™ tube-loaded, aluminium dome tweeter, featuring a new surround material to improve spaciousness and imaging, adds needle-sharp top end all the way to 50kHz and beyond.

    • Speaker Technology: Dynamic
    • Speaker Type: Floor standing
    Floor-standing speakers, with their extra bass power, are generally more suited to larger rooms, although this does not preclude their use in smaller ones. The 704 is the smaller of the two floor-standers in the Series and is a 2-way system. Where bass frequencies are produced by both cone drivers operating in parallel. To maintain a better vertical dispersion of sound, the lower driver is progressively attenuated above 150Hz to leave the upper Kevlar® cone driver operating alone through the midrange. Mounting the tweeter in its own housing on top of the cabinet maintains a more even dispersion for better stability imaging, even when sitting away from the centre line between the speakers. The ability to time align the tweeter with the bass/midrange driver also improves system integration.

    • Speaker Technology: Dynamic
    • Speaker Type: Floor standing
    For a dynamic power delivery in the bass region, this slim floor-standing loudspeaker relies on two mid/bass drivers from the completely newly developed Esotec+ generation.
    By employing a double-magnet motor system with ultra-compressed Ferrite magnets, dramatic musical passages are reproduced without compromise. And with increased cone excursion, even the most powerful transients are delivered without compression.

    The use of large diameter aluminium voice-coils has increased thermal handling capabilities tremendously, allowing all drivers to operate within an ideal temperature range, even at high continuous power levels and during powerful music transients.

    Another Dynaudio exclusive: The cone diaphragm with controlled rigidity is manufactured from Magnesium Silicate Polymer (MSP) – a material essential to the unique Dynaudio sound. This complete motor assembly is built into a torsionally rigid die-cast aluminium basket, which has been optimized to eliminate air turbulence and resonance and the adverse effects of such.

    A new model for the 800 Series, the 803D brings diamond dome technology to a less technical looking piece of furniture than the larger 'headed' models. Here the FST™ midrange driver is housed in its own isolated section of the beautifully curved, Matrix™ braced main cabinet, which is kept as narrow as possible in order to optimise the dispersion of sound. In order to have a similar bass output capability to the wider 802D, the 803D uses three Rohacell® cone bass drivers, this time supplemented by a front-firing Flowport™. Like all of our dedicated bass-only drivers, the basic rigidity of the radiating area is enhanced by our novel 'mushroom' construction, a girder-like component that supports the central area of the dustcap.

    The FPM4 uses the same Kevlar® cone bass/midrange drivers and Nautilus™ tube-loaded tweeter as the FPM5, but in a shorter enclosure that matches the height of 42-inch plasma screens, yet concedes little in bass extension. Like the FPM5 it's a 2½-way configuration that allows wider dispersion of sound in the midrange; essential when used horizontally as a centre speaker. With complete timbre matching between the systems in the range, feel free to use a longer model at centre to harmonise with the longer dimension of the screen. Bass is augmented by Flowport, and is remarkable for such a small enclosure. Kevlar® ensures the midrange is clear and detailed, right where the ear is at its most discerning, and the tweeter extends way beyond the limits of human hearing to make the most of high definition formats.

    The Active version of the Monitor 40.1 is a functional and sonic development of the BBC's LS5/8 Grade 1 monitor which has been the primary monitor used in broadcasting for more than 20 years. In common with other BBC designed (or derived) monitors, the Monitor 40.1 gives a relaxed' presentation that places performers in a 'curtain of sound'  quite unlike commercial monitors with their more 'forward' subjectively fatiguing balance. Used throughout the BBC in drama and speech related applications the three optimised drive units (similar to those in the Monitor 30) are seamlessly combined for pin-point stereo so that no matter how long or late the session, the Monitor 40.1 delivers clean, smooth natural sound on and off axis in the near, mid or far field. This effortless hallmark of the Harbeth Monitor 20 - Monitor 40.1 family permits sonic projects to be started and completed on any of these family speakers with confidence in the final mix.(from http://www.harbeth.co.uk/uk/index.php?section=products&page=monitor40.1active&model=Monitor%2040.1%20Active)

    The Synchrony Two B, a 5.25-inch two-way, employs the Synchrony high-linearity titanium-dome tweeter and dual-laminate-weave woofers, The Synchrony Two B is excellently suited for use with a high-performance subwoofer such as PSB’s own ultra-compact HD models, yet is fully capable of serious music reproduction on its own: the Two B delivers useful output to a remarkable 50 Hz. Though more compact (and more affordable) than the tower Synchrony models, the “B” is astonishingly close in sound (within their operating ranges), to its larger floor standing siblings. “The Synchrony Two B impressed me as an unflappable performer with tonal qualities remarkably similar to the Synchrony One flagship. The superb construction quality, details, and fittings are also identical. The amazing thing about this speaker (Synchrony Two B) is that except for the lack of deep bass, it sonically mirrors the Synchrony One flagship. PSB hasn’t just paid a lot of lip service to the subject of timbre matching; they’ve achieved it.” Neil Gader, The Absolute Sound, December 2007 (from http://www.psbspeakers.com/products/Synchrony/Synchrony-Two-B)

The newly developed drivers ensure that the listener will experience the subtlest musical details, even at low listening levels.The curved front and rear sides of the cabinet will effectively reduce cabinet resonance and vibration for the highest possible sound quality. The lacquered sandwich baffle, which is glued to the main cabinet, will prevent vibration from reaching the main cabinet. Thereby the cabinet is even more inert to disturbing vibration from the drivers.Essentially MENTOR 8 is a three-way bass reflex speaker with two 8" bass woofers a 6.5” midrange driver and DALI´s proprietary ribbon/soft dome hybrid tweeter module. In fact it is more a three-and-a half-way design, as the dome and the ribbon do not cover the same frequency range. (from http://dali-speakers.com/display_content.php/INT/speakers.html/172/999)

    The three-way flagship Harbeth Monitor has produced countless hundreds of thousands of hours of Network radio, TV and post production for more than 10 years. Now the Monitor 40.1 is the latest generation of the leading Harbeth to fulfil the ‘BBC Grade 1 Reference Monitor specification’. Coloration is by far the lowest of any monitor loudspeaker and even lower than the Monitor 40. Power handling and efficiency have been increased, system impedance raised and optimised for easier amplifier matching, tighter bass and stereo imaging in a class of its own.

    The Monitor 40.1 gives a relaxed and totally fatigue free presentation that naturally and effortlessly places performers in 3D space. As with all members of the Harbeth Monitor 20/30/40 family, projects started on one speaker can be reworked on others with complete confidence despite the cabinet size range due to a common design brief and sonic presentation.

It is a crossoverless, full-range driver loudspeaker, complimented by a high output super-tweeter, matched to a cabinet utilizing the ZuRG technology.There are many definable aspects of what makes for good playback fidelity but none more important than dynamic realism. In order for music and other sonic events to sound real through recording and playback, the electronics, recording medium, environment and loudspeaker must be capable of recreating the natural dynamic range and contrast of the event. Druid loudspeakers will give you dynamic realism, something only a handful of loudspeakers can, and of those, only the Druid recreates timing, tone, texture and natural stereophonic recreation with the same level of believability. (from http://www.zucable.com/loudspeakers/druid.html)

    Energy, depth, substance: The Focus 360 reveals the full musical picture. From the finest nuance of a singing voice to the full dynamics of an orchestra – music becomes a tactile experience.

    The impressive energy and dynamics are achieved by newly developed 20 cm woofers, arranged in a dual driver design. The large diaphragm surface and the immense inner volume of the cabinet allows authentic deep bass delivery and reproduction down to 31 Hz. Even the most energetic low frequency notes are reproduced in an absolutely precise and controlled manner, thanks to extraordinarily large voice coils with the magnet inside the coil.
    The result is remarkable speed and accuracy in the lower registers. Voices and instruments are handled by a dedicated midrange driver. The separation of the midrange from the lower bass in the isolated cabinet chamber avoids influence and disturbance from the woofer section.

It’s a bass reflex design based on pairing KEF’s latest and most sophisticated Uni-Q array with powerful new generation bass drivers in an elegantly curved cabinet that’s designed to maximise cabinet stiffness and minimise internal reflections. The 165mm (6.5in) Uni-Q driver reproduces the nuances of the human voice with subtlety and real depth. Midrange response is fluid, perfectly time-aligned with the high frequencies and evenly delivered over an exceptionally wide area. As you would expect from low distortion motors driving dual composite cones, the two 165mm (6.5in) low frequency drivers of the iQ90 deliver lavish bass, consummately controlled and with KEF’s new ‘labyrinth’ damping system, none of the accompanying distortion that so often impairs tall speakers.
    As front speakers for high-end home theatre or as a stereo pair, the iQ90 has gratifyingly precise 3D imaging, breathtaking dynamics and real depth to the performance. As with the other iQ Series floorstanders, a discreet plinth is provided for even greater stability.  (from http://www2.kef.com/us/Loudspeakers/Q-Series/IQ90)

    • Speaker Technology: Dynamic
    • Speaker Type: Stand mounted
    On a bookshelf or a speaker stand, the CM5 will give you a wonderfully big, expansive sound even if you don’t have the floorspace to match.

    It’s a slightly larger speaker than its sibling the CM1, with even higher sensitivity and power handling, and better bass extension.  It partners a sizable 165mm Kevlar® cone bass/midrange driver with a Nautilus™ tube-loaded aluminium dome tweeter, capable of keeping high frequencies crisp and sharp all the way up to 50kHz and beyond.

    The quality of CM Series drive units has made it possible to use minimalist crossovers throughout the whole range. The resulting gentle transition between drivers avoids the unnaturally rapid changes in dispersion that bedevil more complex designs, while the high quality components, carefully chosen after exhaustive listening tests, ensure that as little as possible gets between you and the sound of the original recording.

    With an enclosure height to match the height of 60-inch plasma screens, the FPM6 is the largest model in the FPM Series. Compared to the other models, its enclosure is not only longer, it's wider too, which allows the use of two larger Kevlar® cone bass/midrange drivers each side of the Nautilus™ tube-loaded tweeter. Higher output level capability and greater bass extension result, but timbre matching allows complete freedom to mix different models for left and right front, centre and surround if desired. Freedom and flexibility extend to the four possible mounting options. Use the supplied wall bracket if no tilting of the speaker is needed. If it is, use an Omnimount® type 20.0 or other compatible bracket to get up to 10º of downward tilt. If using a tabletop stand for your screen, simply do the same with the speakers, using the optional table stand. Finally, there is an optional floor stand that supports the speaker at the ideal listening height.

    Dynaudio Contour S 3.4

    • Speaker Technology: Dynamic
    • Speaker Type: Floor standing
    The Dynaudio Contour S 3.4 delivers a natural, life-like sound
    due to its incredible balance.

    The Contour Cabinet is strengthened by cross braces in specific areas to achieve a solid, vibration-free construction. Internally, the MDF walls are damped with an extremely dense material that absorbs even the most microscopic resonance.

    In conjunction with the advanced metal baffle construction, an extremely stiff and rigid unit is created, further ennobled by the finely polished surface of a beautifully finished real wood veneer. The innovative base plinth, derived from the Dynaudio Confidence range, serves as a stylish yet solid stand for the speakers. Integrated spike assemblies, adjustable from the top, allow precise levelling of the speakers on any floor surface.

    The Evidence Master represents a milestone in State-of-the-Art loudspeaker technology and has set new standards in performance and product design while featuring future proof open-architecture.

    Unusual is its modular construction: The Evidence Master is comprising of three individual sections. The two - technically identical - upper and lower sections house the bass drive units, while the middle section contains the midrange and treble drive units and the crossover, the latter which is further isolated within its own individual compartment.
    This construction offers a tremendous performance advantage, as each section can be optimized for the differing requirements of precise bass, midrange and high frequency reproduction.

    The 703 is a full 3-way design. Twin bass drivers, their stiff paper/Kevlar® cones further strengthened by our unique girder-like mushroom construction, work in parallel in a Flowport-tuned cavity to handle all the bass frequencies. Freed from the need to produce any bass signals, the dedicated FST midrange driver operates in its own isolated cavity within the cabinet. The combination of its woven Kevlar® cone and mechanically matched outer suspension enables this driver to portray the finest nuances in the signal, giving instruments their correct timbral character and positioning them accurately on the sound stage. The tube-loaded tweeter is freely mounted on top of the cabinet to give a sense of airiness and to reduce the listeners' awareness of the speakers as discrete sound sources.

    Bowers & Wilkins 705

    • Speaker Technology: Dynamic
    • Speaker Type: Stand mounted
    The 705 is a compact 2-way system suitable for stand or bookshelf mounting. The FS-700 speaker stand is recommended and can be screwed directly into the base of the speaker. Along with the 703, 704 and HTM7, the sloping top and front baffle are formed from a single piece of ply, using the same technique used to form the Nautilus 800 Series cabinets. This makes the cabinet stronger than if two separate panels had been used and the curved profile of the lip in front of the tweeter benefits the that driver's response by reducing diffraction from any sharp edge. The woven Kevlar® coned bass/midrange driver incorporates features designed to reduce distortion in the motor system and these are used in all bass/midrange and bass-only drivers throughout the Series. In most drivers, the inductance of the voice coil varies according to the position of the coil in the gap, which causes the driver response to vary throughout each cycle. When reproducing bass frequencies, this variation can be significant. Here, a combination of a copper sheath over the centre pole of the magnet system and aluminium disc on the tip eliminates this variation. This reduction in modulation distortion helps to make the sound character more consistent with output level and improves the rendition of fine detail. (from http://www.bowers-wilkins.com/display.aspx?infid=1096)

    The SuperHL5 is capable of fantastic performance: breathtaking transparency, a huge sound stage and a total sense of being immersed in the performance. It creates a rich bass and sweet midrange that brings acoustic music alive.

    The Harbeth Super HL5 is the sixth generation of the BBC's Dudley Harwood HL-Monitor which launched the Harbeth company in 1977. Retaining the same classic 'two cubic foot' proportions as the BBC LS3/6 monitor (actually a little wider), the exclusive Harbeth-made 200mm RADIAL™ cone bass/mid driver produces a big, warm and powerful sound that underpins the incredible midband clarity. At the highest frequencies, the 20mm main tweeter is augmented by a SuperTweeter, so that the combination results in an extended, smooth and even dispersion right to the upper edge of the audio band.

    Bowers & Wilkins 683

    • Speaker Technology: Dynamic
    • Speaker Type: Floor standing
    The imposing 683 is the genuine three-way speaker of the 600 Series, with a line-up of technologies and a level of performance that defies its entry-level place in the market. For large rooms, two 683s make a formidable partnership, either for stereo hi-fi or fronting a home theatre installation.

    Deep, dynamic, bottom-end power is delivered by a pair of aluminium/paper/Kevlar® composite cone bass drive units. The 150mm Kevlar® midrange handles middle frequencies with its characteristic clarity and tunefulness, but, for the first time in a 600 Series speaker, includes FST cone surround technology for extra detail and resolution. The Nautilus™ tube-loaded, aluminium dome tweeter, featuring a new surround material to improve spaciousness and imaging, adds needle-sharp top end all the way to 50kHz and beyond.

    Bowers & Wilkins M-1

    • Speaker Technology: Dynamic
    • Speaker Type: Stand mounted
    The M-1 has been engineered with the same design attributes and ethos as B&W’s larger ranges. Perhaps the most striking thing about the M-1 is the weight and strength of its curved aluminium cabinet. This is combined with a strong, glass-loaded ABS front baffle. Together they provide an excellent cabinet: the curved aluminium is stiff and the ABS offers excellent and appropriate damping characteristics.

    The M-1’s drive units were developed by Bowers & Wilkins specifically for the design. The metal dome tweeter benefits from refinements developed for the new B&W 800 Series and includes Nautilus™ tube loading and neodymium magnets. The glass fibre bass/midrange cone’s ability to absorb standing waves has been further enhanced by the inclusion of five strategically placed resin filled slots that further minimise distortion.

    Wilson Audio Sasha

    • Speaker Technology: Dynamic
    • Speaker Type: Floor standing
    Both the new midrange/tweeter module and the bass cabinet have greater volume than W/P System 8. The larger bass enclosure results in a 2Hz greater extension in the bass, and less congestion in the upper bass. Increased volume in the upper module allows a new bracing architecture and sidewall construction for greater rigidity and lower resonance. Sasha’s upper module utilizes Wilson’s newest proprietary cabinet material for its baffle, resulting in a lower noise floor and greater transparency in the critical midrange. By removing the crossover from the upper module, less midrange energy is reflected through the midrange driver cone, again improving clarity and transparency.(from http://www.wilsonaudio.com/sasha/sasha_facts.html)

    There can be few projects in this World where the central aim is to create an ‘ultimate’. But this was precisely the goal when KEF combined their state-of the-art acoustic technology with the sensual, organic forms of  visionary designer Ross Lovegrove.  The result was Muon – perhaps the most extraordinary audio speaker ever conceived.The Muon loudspeaker is fabricated from super-formed aluminium, which uses a similar moulding process to vacuum forming. The concept uses malleable sheets of heated aluminium to achieve otherwise impossible shapes. The eventual form of the loudspeaker was the result of a careful convergence between Ross Lovegrove’s design aesthetics and the physics of sound. The process by which they were conceived meant that, in effect, Ross Lovegrove was sculpting the sound by ‘skinning’ the technology with purposeful form – the final shape was created through an evolutionary process that ensured it could only be the form that it is.  (from http://www2.kef.com/us/loudspeakers/muon/muon)

    Magico Mini II

    • Speaker Technology: Dynamic
    • Speaker Type: Stand mounted
    Already hailed as The Absolute Sound’s "Product of the Year" for 2006 and described as "the most thoroughly, knowledgeably, and successfully engineered mini-monitor the high end has yet seen," the MINI gets a major upgrade. Incorporating a new custom-designed Nano-Tec® woofer, the MINIs can go deeper and play louder, with vanishingly low levels of distortion. Thanks in part to an all-new "Elliptical Symmetry Crossover" (ESXO), they are also easier to drive than their first incarnation.


    At the heart of the MINI's enclosure are 16 horizontal layers of extremely stiff, 1", laminated, 17-ply Baltic Birch plywood. The result is an enclosure that is three times stiffer than enclosures fabricated with the vertical MDF construction techniques typically found in high-end loudspeakers. To maximize driver-enclosure coupling, the faceplate and the rear panels are machined from 1.5" 6061T-6 aircraft-grade aluminum billets, a material 6 times stiffer than any wood product. The aluminum faceplate is optimally curved to follow the speaker's exterior profile and help reduce diffraction, while the curved internal walls of the enclosure allow for an even distribution of the pressure generated by the driver's back wave. In fact, the greater the pressure inside the MINIs, the stiffer their enclosures become. This results in minimal energy losses, translating to maximum bass definition and control. The drivers are completely decoupled from the wooden parts of the enclosures and no hardware is used to hold any metal parts to the enclosure, permanently ensuring a totally sealed enclosure.

    The YARA II SUPERIOR comes as a true 3-way loudspeaker built according to the principle of Audio Physic’s push-push technology where the loudspeaker manufacturer found a possibility of making a perfect technology even more perfect. The two side-firing 7’’ woofers are effectively arranged back to back just above the bottom base of the loudspeaker. Their stable aluminium diaphragms move simultaneously in the same direction, either inwards or outwards, whereas a reactive movement of the cabinet can be prevented from the start. In addition, vibrations transmitted from the loudspeakers are compensated. The use of a very low crossover frequency between the woofers and midrange allows easy positioning of the loudspeakers where the distance to walls or furniture can be quite small.

But the crowning glory is the marble tube-loaded tweeter, whose dome of synthetic diamond delivers high frequencies with jaw-dropping precision and clarity.

    No other material gets closer to the perfect behaviour of a hypothetical tweeter dome, one of infinite stiffness and zero mass. Created by crystallising a ‘carbon frost’ into the shape of the dome at temperatures approaching those of the sun’s surface, the diamond dome makes the sweetest-sounding tweeter you’ve ever heard.

    An ideal sonic architecture is defined by realizing the precise balance between highly complex technology and homogenous sound reproduction. This aspect of design is perfectly demonstrated by the conceptual logic behind the Confidence C2.
    The Confidence C2 employs one of the most unusual two-way driver arrangements available: two highly advanced mid-bass drivers and two Esotar² tweeters perform in perfect balance augmented by the DDC technology, similar to the C4 model, to create a captivating sonic synergy which is unequalled by larger loudspeakers even in spacious rooms.
    This high level of performance wasn’t just achieved through fondness of detail. That is why, in the customary Dynaudio tradition, both mastercraftsmanship and minute fine-tuning of the sound are considered so important.Every Confidence is built in Denmark to meticulous standards combining highly advanced computer-driven manufacturing technology with precision old-world hand-craftsmanship.The cabinet is constructed by specially trained carpenters and involves numerous cycles of sanding and polishing by hand during the elaborate finishing process. The result is a luxurious finish that will retain its beauty even after decades.

    Space being at a premium needn’t mean compromising on sound quality; many serious audiophiles regard the compact XQ10 bookshelf speaker as the rightful heir to the revered LS3/5a professional studio monitor.

    Packed with technology derived from the Reference Series, it features KEF’s new generation Uni-Q® array and ‘tangerine’ waveguide: a stunningly natural-sounding elliptical dome 19mm (0.75in.) tweeter perfectly time-aligned with the surrounding midrange/bass cone to disperse the sound far more evenly across the listening area than is possible with conventional speakers. A speaker that’s big in everything but size.

    Presence is a triangular shaped, full spectrum, high efficiency, high output, direct radiating infinite baffle (sealed) loudspeaker designed for high fidelity home audio and home theater use. To properly cover the bottom octave or two (16Hz to 40Hz) Presence uses an onboard Hypex UcD (v2) power amp to drive two internally housed 10” low mass subwoofers that are isolated and reside just behind the Presence’ lower grille. The main driver is a full-range design that is free from any crossover or signal manipulating components—signal comes in through the pure copper Cardas inputs, runs directly into Zu B3 silver alloy cable, and runs directly to the main driver voicecoil inputs. The full range driver and subwoofer array are complimented by a high output, time-matched super-tweeter that covers the top of the treble range.

    • Speaker Technology: Dynamic
    • Speaker Type: Floor standing
    A Definition Mark One.Nine (Mk1.9) is a used but reworked MDF core from an original Definition fitted with Definition Mk2 parts. It’s what you get when you allow original Definition and Definition Pro owners to trade their old speakers for new Definition Mk2. We have taken these trade-ins, completely updated, remanufactured, and refinished them. The finished product is nearly that of the Definition Mk2 but without the new Def Mk2 super-ply cabinet core material and a few minor differences in cabinet bracing; but otherwise as close as we could remake them to current Definition Mk2 specs. Machined name plated are complete with Mk1.9 designation and serial numbers. Definition Mk1.9 models will come with a 2-year factory warranty. Complete with new owners manual, cleaning kit, and packaging.

    The all-new Dynaudio Audience 42 SAT expands the possibilities in its ability to bridge the demands modern living with the desire for superb audio performance and delivers the enjoyment of a full-fledged loudspeaker system without the requirements of much physical space.

    Dynaudio Consequence

    • Speaker Technology: Dynamic
    • Speaker Type: Floor standing
    "Reference Loudspeakers May Come and Go; The Consequence remains"

    The privileged position Dynaudio loudspeakers occupy, is confirmed in an impressive way by the Consequence.

    Following a consistent concept and its realization, it is presented to music lovers who require the best, to aesthetes who possess asensitive feeling for this uncompromisingly harmonic conversion of quality into a functional design; it is a loudspeaker for the few who are able to fulfill their individual demands and who are willing to do so.

    The Consequence by Dynaudio achieves absolute high end. It represents uncompromising technology, and creative innovation on the highest possible level; it possesses qualifications which - together with difficult psycho-acoustical findings - come into full effect at the point that is the final stage for many loudspeakers: the point of truth.
    Because truth is and will always be the only universally valid standard for the quality of reproduction. The technical specifications are regarded as top quality by any expert. Impressive diagrams, data and curves produced by an oscilloscope, are not the measure of all things, but longlasting, convincing and audible sound reproduction

    Dynaudio Excite X16

    • Speaker Technology: Dynamic
    • Speaker Type: Stand mounted
    The exemplary performance of the Dynaudio Excite X16 renders maximum enjoyment from a compact design: Powerful bass, natural midrange, and transparent highs - with any genre of music, on any system.

    Featuring a new 18 cm woofer, the X16 effortlessly reproduces deep bass notes even in larger rooms. Impressive dynamics are a result of one Dynaudio forte: The large high density ferrite magnet and an especially long but lightweight aluminium voice coil. The coil always moves precisely within the magnetic field, even during the most dynamic pulses.

    With very dynamic recordings played at the highest volumes, the loudspeaker remains precise, detailed and undistorted. This powerful driver system is so efficient that high volumes can even be reached without a high-powered amplifier.
    The soft dome tweeter matches this controlled performance, remaining clear, detailed and linear, up to the highest frequencies.
