"Highly revealing of the purity of tone of instruments, these floorstanding speakers are just as capable of snarl or stomach-rearranging punch."-Hi-Fi News
“This is the first time we’ve realised this level of power and refinement at the same time.”-CEPro
The flagship of the 800 Series Diamond range is a no-compromise design: behind that strong visual statement is half a century of design and engineering, all in the cause of greater musical insight and impact.
Mounted atop the main enclosure, the Diamond dome tweeter in its solid aluminium housing delivers space, ambience and precise soundstage imaging.
The Turbine Head's massive midrange housing is carefully shaped and inert, ensuring voices and instruments are delivered with extreme purity.
Voices and instruments are delivered with purity and precision, thanks to the smooth, accurate Continuum™ cone midrange driver.
Solid, dramatic bass is delivered through the rigidity and lightness of the uniquely-shaped variable thickness Aerofoil™ cone.
Perfect sound is about moving air, not the speakers: a stable plinth makes for easy positioning, then keeps it rock-solid for listening.
Unwanted resonances can blunt the punch of the sound: advanced Matrix bracing keeps the cabinet ultra-rigid and damps out superfluous vibrations.
