INFORMATION

The TRANSCENDENT represents an integration of proprietary techniques developed over the last decade through our award winning ISIS and TIME transducers. Never before has such a compact system utilized the sophisticated dynamic control technologies found exclusively in our most advanced designs.

Octave to octave energy balance is equivalent throughout the bandwidth envelope and developed without compression while critically damped, thus delivering a spatial presentation that is faithful to the recording. The result is a dynamic system that focuses images palpably within a panoramic soundstage without sacrificing transparency or low frequency solidity.

Most surprising in a transducer of this size is the ability to present realistic dynamic and harmonic contrasts without sacrificing natural musicality. Devoid of exaggeration or artificial emphasis the presentation retains the bloom and subtlety of a live performance.

Music is the passion in our blood and the muse of our intellect.

Features

  • Purely pistonic wavefront generation with smooth open lobing characteristics

  • Stored energy elimination (SEE) technology produces clear stable imaging and black backgrounds even under heavy SPL demands

  • Entirely resistive and finite loading from 15Hz to 150KHz minimizing amplifier reactivity effects.

  • Advanced light weight driver diaphragm materials minimize energy storage and time-domain distortion.

  • Each driver individually tested and matched for optimum performance.

  • Smooth, wide polar response for superlative imaging capabilities.

  • Moderate impedance characteristic allows for ideal interface with any amplifier.

  • Crossover circuitry is hard-wired with surface-only conductors, eliminating deleterious sonic effects of printed-circuit boards.

  • Rear mounted binding post

  • Careful crossover control of all magnetic field interaction.

  • Proprietary magnetics technology increases energy transfer and reduces noise floor.

  • Constrained-mode damping system absorbs cabinet vibrations.

  • Three and one-quarter inch thick front panel supplies acoustically inert wave-launch platform.

  • Acoustically-engineered grille assembly decreases edge diffraction effects.

  • Distinctive faceted cabinet design provides optimal polar characteristics.
