Product Information:

IDEA  £11500

Represents a synthesis of our aesthetic and sonic ideals in a sleek form. Combining the classic proportions of our world renowned cabinetry with the latest technological innovations in circuit design, the IDEA will unfold an expansive presentation in even modest listening spaces, exemplifying the most sought after characteristics of high-end audio reproduction.

Transparency and expansiveness in soundstaging are at the heart of the IDEA’S presentation envelope, while never sacrificing or exaggerating immediacy and dynamism. The black backgrounds and crisp articulation that distinguish every AVALON ACOUSTICS design are on display through each genre of musical style within the recording engineer’s reach. Contrasts both dynamic and harmonic are presented vividly within a panoramic soundstage built on a foundation of low frequency solidity.

Indra Ceramic £40500 Indra Diamond £45000

Utilizing technologies created specifically for TESSERACT, the entirely redesigned INDRA represents the pinnacle of high resolution/high energy performance in a transducer of its size. Transient response, bandwidth, noise floor and octave-to-octave energy balance are incomparable. More than just transparent and dynamic, Indra has the groundbreaking ability to recreate a holographic sound-field completely free of the loudspeaker cabinet and room boundaries. Indra will reveal the most subtle nuance and detail of a musical performance in three-dimensional space.

Proprietary crossover technologies and drivers made of the lightest and most inert Nomex/Kevlar and ceramic diaphragm materials provide INDRA with instantaneous response and tracing of the original musical signal. Through the most demanding musical passages, each instrument and voice retain its position and definition within the musical and sonic structure. Phrasing detail of each musical expression is revealed through meticulous phase accuracy and high-resolution purity, generating a continuous musical flow like no other transducer.

Time

Years of research into spatial transparency has produced a design devoted to holistic precision, carefully balancing all empirical criteria without exaggeration or gimmick. The result is shockingly non-clinical, with rich tonal colors and thundering dynamic contrasts that remain locked into precise focus naturally filling the spatial context of the recording. Low noise floor and vanishingly small distortion byproducts of all types couple to produce an uncompressed soundfield free of listener fatigue.

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 focuses with pin-point accuracy, revealing the most subtle details of space and time combined with the ability to create explosive sound pressure contrasts.

Most importantly the uniqueness of this design is found in its internal timing. Rhythm and tempo are authentic while micro-timing of individual transients are revealed for their inherent explosiveness, bloom, and decay. Instruments and ambient detail emerge from a black background and the lowest noise floor yet achieved in a high energy transducer.
