INFORMATION

The IDEA 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.

Music is the passion in our blood and the muse of our intellect.
DESIGNED BY NEIL PATEL FOR AVALON ACOUSTICS

Features

  • Purely pistonic wavefront generation with smooth open lobing characteristics

  • 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.

  • Acoustically-engineered grille assembly decreases edge diffraction effects.

  • Distinctive faceted cabinet design provides optimal polar characteristics.

  • Proprietary inert-matrix cabinet material for superlative articulation and transient speed.
