Avalon Elite Series: Isis Signature & Saga Signature

, ,

Control networks within the crossover designed specifically to target resolution and ambience retrieval under high current conditions are the heart of COMPÁS. Its unique ceramic/honeycomb woofers deliver an authorita-tive low frequency response with unsurpassed transient accuracy, carefully blending with the highs for a “true to source” sound reproduction. Proprietary low jitter circuitry clarifies image boundaries to a high-resolution standard suitable for professional monitoring where microphone placement and phasing are critical. Utilization of the same diaphragm materials throughout the array adds to the continuity of harmonic structure in a crisp, seamless musical presentation devoid of stored energy; its rock solid imaging presented with a palpable den-sity through accurate and colorful harmonic structures.
All Avalon Acoustics loudspeakers are designed and built to the highest standards in the audio industry. Handcrafted by dedicated craftsmen and technicians, each loudspeaker is measured and matched for perfect symmetry and coherency. Before leaving the factory our masterpieces are subjected to a demanding array of quality control and testing procedures to assure flawless and consistent performance.

Isis Signature

How does one describe the indescribable? Surpassing all previous design conventions, ISIS Signature represents a profound achievement in pinpoint accuracy from a full range high-energy transducer. At its inception, ISIS was recognized by the critics as “Revolutionary”. Retaining its classic form, ISIS Signature has been fully redesigned utilizing our proprietary Silent Inert Composite system, eliminating the eigenmode sonic degradation of any single material design. We have retained the all-neodymium magnetic technologies of the drive units, controlling each with proprietary all-phase, high-current networks connected throughout with our custom-smelted precious metal conductors. Low frequency impedance structure is flat, without system resonance, and easily driven.

The result is a large dynamic system that behaves like a small monitor, revealing the most subtle details of space and time combined with the ability to create explosive sound pressure contrasts. The noise floor is lower, the transient response faster, the storage of stray energy less than ever before. Octave to octave energy balance is equivalent throughout the extended bandwidth envelope, developed without compression and displayed on the blackest of backgrounds. Foremost, it is music in its most 3-dimensionally dynamic form.

“A signature is the mark we make to signify responsibility. We pledge our bond that the article is authentic, truthful, and faithfully represents our intentions. Each Signature design is a reaffirmation of my personal commitment to Fidelity. Not a concept to be taken lightly, Fidelity

is a vow of allegiance to preservation of truth, without leaving any fingerprints.

The delicately nuanced structure of music requires an authentic translation, lest we lose the intent and humanity of the artist. Each of these Signature designs is a work of art unique unto itself, a portal into an exploration of musical history and self.

Saga Signature

SAGA represents the synthesis of our multi-year research into low noise circuitry developed for Tesseract and the high resolution pin-point focus of Isis. Our in depth research over a period of four years has produced a range of advancements in each aspect of loudspeaker performance. Proprietary conductors and magnetic technologies, as well as new techniques in cabinet construction, have been combined with the implementation of an all neodymium full range driver array. A new family of all-pass phase networks confer empirical improvements in all aspects of energy transfer and transient speed. The noise floor is lower, the transient response faster, and the storage of stray energy is less than ever before. Most importantly, the octave to octave energy balance is equivalent throughout the extended bandwidth envelope, developed without compression of any kind and yet critically damped, thus delivering a dynamic and spatial presentation that is absolutely faithful to the recording. The result is a large dynamic system that behaves like a small monitor, revealing the most subtle details of space against black backgrounds within an envelope of explosive sound pressure contrasts. Modest impedance characteristics make macro dynamic distinctions possible with even low output, voltage source amplifiers.

The adherence to true high-end idealism, perfect phase behavior and accurate soundstaging, will stand the test of time when high priced mid-fi fads have faded into obscurity. Our goal is to always be true to our passion for music, while creating the most technologically advanced reference transducers in the world.
