A FLAGSHIP MASTERPIECE
This flagship masterpiece is designed for the discriminating audio aficionado. Combining state-of-the-art innovations in sound reproduction with finely-crafted aesthetics, the Model D is the first—and best—system of its kind.
FULL RANGE DIPOLE
The Model D is a full range floor-standing dipole speaker which emits sound from both front and back. Unrestricted by the vibrations of conventional cabinets, it interacts with the room like a Steinway & Sons grand piano does, resulting in extremely open and life-like musicality, with no resonance and no coloration.
For the most formal presentation, the Model D is available in an iconic black lacquer. Using time-honored techniques, trained craftsmen ensure that the finish of each component attains the highest standard of quality. And to complement any personal style, it’s also available in a wide selection of exquisite custom wood and high-gloss color lacquers.
With more than 170 hours of precision machining behind each speaker, the Model D speaker is a rugged powerhouse of strength and performance. The baffle is milled from solid blocks of aluminum to offer complete stability to the drive units. The result is perfect audio reproduction and completely stabilized synchronicity between signal and sound.
The optional head unit stereo processor stands just over three feet in height, and is a testament to both craftsmanship and control. The distinctive volume wheel, for example, is crafted from 1 kg of gold-plated brass and mounted on precision-machined Swiss bearings.
Weighing 4kg, the integrated CD player’s rigid construction is combined with a 6mm thick loader mechanism and a solid aluminum disc tray, resulting in an utterly reliable and extremely stable unit. The CD drive also features exceptional vibration decoupling to ensure optimal optical reading. It is perfect for all kinds of music, and rockets ahead on powerful bass with impeccable weight and impact.
