Entry Description

Appropriately dubbed as a ‘’Retro-Futuristic’’ design, this 48 inch tall spun aluminium and solid wood design has, in a special way, revolutionized speaker designs.
Conceptually, it was designed to harness the natural resonance combining the wood and aluminium material. Secondly, a huge concaved solid wooden disc was designed
to improve the sound stage versus the traditional speaker box designs.

This combined and balanced form substantially improved the traditional ‘’king’s triangle’’ whereas the optimal listening position is relatively restricted. The bass frequencies are evenly disbursed via the conical base facing downwards to the surface of the floor.
The overall aesthetics is attained as it looks like a giant black vinyl disc facing directly to the audience, supported by a clean, conical aluminium alloy.
As a result, the speakers are now able to achieve Hi-Fi quality play back at low to moderate volume, and most importantly, pleasurable listening and visual enjoyment.
