Designed by Australian Ribbon-Guru Tony Moore, the Reference 1600 model incorporates the Ambience Neodymium ribbon driver, which has proven to be extremely reliable and robust.
This ribbon hybrid loudspeaker offers a moderate efficiency specification of 89dB, which uses extremely well designed ferrite magnets.
The magnets form the main integral part of the engine that creates the sound.
Marrying these two varying technologies together, a complex 18dB/Octave crossover has been specially designed utilizing “Hovland” capacitors from the U.S. These capacitors are renowned for being the finest available in the world.
The crossover point is performed at a frequency less sensitive to the human ear; thus cannot be distinguished.
Internal cabling is also sourced from the U.S company “Analysis Plus”; this company is rapidly gaining reputation for being one of the finest cable manufacturers within the industry.
The resulting combination is a speaker system that has incredible DYNAMICS, REALISM and coupled with CLARITY that only Ribbon or Electrostatic loudspeakers can produce.
The soundstage is huge, and being of di-polar type design, create a three dimensional sound field. Because of their gradual ramp downward tendency at the upper most frequencies, listening is very smooth and relaxing, even when operated at high volume levels!
All our models (except sub woofer) incorporate the Ambience ribbon driver, which has proven to be extremely reliable and robust.
They have a natural tendency to “ramp” off at frequencies above 16KHz, without the use of electronic filter networks, adding coloration and distortion.
The Bass driver has been specifically developed by SEAS of Norway to match the Ambience Ribbon driver, with a useful lower frequency response well below 30Hz.
A complex third order crossover is fitted to all models. The crossover point is performed at a frequency less sensitive to the human ear; thus cannot be distinguished.
The resulting combination is a speaker system that has incredible REALISM, coupled with CLARITY that only Ribbon or Electrostatic speakers can produce.
The soundstage is extremely large, and being of di-polar type design, they also have great depth.
Because of their gradual ramp downward tendency at the upper most frequencies, listening is very smooth and relaxing, even when operated at high volume levels!
The 1800 model creates a huge “soundstage” and performs at their best in larger rooms.
Warmth, Encompassing, Surrounding. Hence the name: AMBIENCE!
