After years of listening and testing the reproduction of
instruments, I observed that the most beautiful sounding
instruments are all made of natural materials such as wood and very
specialized varnishes finish, with very specific shapes and sizes
according to their tone and specific range of frequencies (pitch).
In an acoustic instrument the sound is produced by the natural
vibration of a string, membrane or tube, amplified and
naturally changed to a pleasant sound by a wood or metal acoustical resonator
box or tube of an acoustical right material, size and shape.
Taking into account my observations, studies and by logic
thinking and intuition I concluded that the same principles apply
to the reproduction of instruments by an artificial media such as
amplifiers and transducers and more specifically to the use
of wood in the speakers and specifically horns which are to my
findings the highest expression
of musical reproduction.
Excursion of a diaphragm or cone in a
loudspeaker is directly proportional and related to distortion, the
higher the excursion at any specific moment the higher the distortion
Thanks to the all wood, natural finishes, natural progressive impedance
coupling of diaphragm to media, and the very high efficiency of a
high quality compression driver requiring very small excursions of it's diaphragm to re-create even the strongest music passages
easily, results in very low power requirement to drive the diaphragm
micro-displacement, even at high sound levels, utterly low distortion is attained.
This magic combination renders a
and articulated reproduction with "life like" space
and air among instruments, revealing resolution of detail with a
vivid and transparent "concert in your room" magic quality, and
captivating "live" performance with body, weight and presence reproducing music with utterly low distortion
Created to get the listener as closed to a live
performance as possible, capturing and reproducing continuous
transparent neutrality and purity of reproduction, rendering music with
the inherent sweetness and impact of a live performance.
mainly of Tilia,
known as Basswood in North
America, that offers stability and the advantage among many other woods
of a low resonance, avoiding ringing and distortions at
resonance frequencies. The all wood construction and the right
amount of cork covering
the back of each cell in the multicellular structure offers
extra damping of resonances and vibrations,
yet allowing the wood do it's "job" transferring the sound with
natural glue and wood, no fiberglass or any other
synthetic plastics are used. All natural Shellac finish.
The Multicellular construction results in a wide
sound dispersion pattern.
Light weight for ease of transportation.
Resonances and vibrations tend to mud the sound by adding
distortion to the reproduction, they are not acoustic musical
instruments creating their own sounds, but sound reproducers resembling them.
The mounting flange is made of aircraft grade Birch plywood and
stainless steel hardware to mount to the provided all wood throat
adapter wave-guide (when applicable) with 1/4" or 5/16" stainless steel mounting bolts.
horns and especially multicellular are truly harder to
manufacture than the metal counterpart, we believe is worth the extra
effort, after all, how many metal violins are to be found ? Any
aluminum, plastic piano ?
The advantage of natural wood and coatings having their own
nature "signature" for the reproduction of music with
low distortion high efficiency and naturalness resulting in superbly clear voices, is obvious.
with most care, dedication and high attention to detail. One at a time !
They are simply
