Please read this listing carefully to fully understand and appreciate this opportunity. Unfortunately, economy of scale in this niche market segment was one of the (several) reasons why the production run for this speaker was never completed, despite positive reception at several trade shows. The asking price is a conservative approximation of only the raw materials used in the construction and does not reflect the additional costs/time of design, construction and tuning.To understand the value this represents, feel free to research the current price for the components detailed below. The cabinets are constructed using very high-density materials, specifically a laminate of 12mm HDF and 12mm Corian (Corian is a Du Pont product of very high density used in architecture and interior design). The bonded laminate has been CNC machined after assembly to round off all edges, including the driver rebates, to account for edge diffraction and to present an aesthetic and manageable end product. Each speaker weighs in at around 50kg - possible to manoeuvre single handedly for positioning etc. But do need two people to move them any distance. Being a closed/sealed box design, these speakers work well in a wide variety of positions, even close to a front wall. The drivers are all from the flagship Scan-Speak Illuminator range, including their outstanding beryllium tweeter, 12 & 18cm drivers employing their proprietary under-hung neodymium motor design.
These drivers are highly respected for their linear response and voicing. The first order cross over includes Jantzen Audio silver z caps, air core inductors and Duelund coherent resistors professionally designed, built and matched to give the most linear and best sounding frequency response from the drivers and very dense cabinet. The binding posts are WBT signature platinum range.
The speakers present a nominal 8ohm impedance, sensitivity is 87dB. Overall, the audio presentation of these speakers is what would best be described as neutral/transparent and highly detailed/revealing. The visual presentation is one of sophisticated elegance, of the highest measure.
