ASW Magadis – Makassar Piano Lacquer
An easy load for high end amplifiers.
Original boxes, accessories included.
Only components with the highest sound quality were used. All parts are coming from the best high-end manufacturers of the world.
In the bass region, two 9 inch drivers. from Scan Speak are utilised. They are equipped with a distortion free SD 1 motor, aluminium coated membrane, a 220 mm die-cast magnesium very stable and stiff basket, magnetic isolation, without magnetic losses, vented pole piece for ventilating the areas be hind the dustcap, as well as a 50 mm kapton voice coil former, and are extremely heat resistant and absolutely free from any whirl current losses.
In the critical midrange, two 5 inch Thiel-Accouton drivers provide ability for the highest resolution. A unique electrical-chemical production process is responsible for a very thin, stable shaped membrane made from Al2-O3 [Aluminumoxid) Aluminumoxid is demonstrating a highly inner mute, unusual for such a hard material, for that very reason however, extremely important for a loudspeaker These abilities are responsible for less colorin and minimal non linear distortion.
Because of the awesome impulse proportion and the unsurpassed poverty in distortion, in regard to upper frequencies, an air motion transformer was the first choice. The free and open sound of an air motion transformer is captivating. Cymbals are placed there where they should be in the soundstage and are coupled with faithfulness to detail in the recording. You can imagine with your eyes closed the dimensions of the venue as well what is happening on stage.
Without a carefully tuned crossover, even the best components can bring average performance only. Again, careful attention to detail allows the ASW Magadis to shine. With low ohm transformer core coils, distortion free air coils, and audiophile MKP capacitors from Mundorf, every part is selected with the utmost care and is sup porting the entire concept. Accomodated in a separate air tight closed cabinet, the crossover is free of microphone influences.
To avoid any signal losses from the amplifier, we are using “WBT” Next Gen clamps. These can handle current of 200 Amps without any problems. This conductor is made from the purest copper, to create the lowest transition resistance.
Highest criteria are required of inner cabling too. First choice was the neutral and repeatedly awarded cable of the Scottish manufacturer “ATLAS”.
Each of the five drivers is working in a separate cabinet, and can work without being affected by the others. Both of the bass-woofers, (via supplied port stops), can be adjusted individually to change the tuning frequencies (in order to handle difficult room interactions). The double layered interior with a cabinet thickness up to 60 mm, both strutted and interlocked, excels through a combination of high absorption, vibration, and resonance control. Through this extreme expenditure and design consideration, cabinet noises are eliminated.
