If you look up “quality” in the dictionary there must be a reference to the Kharma Exquisite Classique loudspeaker, Quality exudes from the beautifully crafted cabinets to the supercar levels of fit and finish, then there is the sound…….simply breathtaking.
The cabinet of the Exquisite Classique is a piece of art in every way, from the use of the very best of materials to construction and finish, all are exceptional. The cabinet is built up using vertically layered panels with carefully computed irregularity shaped cut-outs, which minimizes air born resonance. This minimization of air born resonance inside the cabinet is important because the cabinet should absolutely have no contribution to the sound field itself.
The combination of high-pressure laminate panels, the irregular shaped cut-outs and the de-coupling substance between panels to prevent structure-born energy travelling from one panel to another guarantees a resonance-dead cabinet. The Exquisite Classique’s cabinet does not contribute to the sound field itself resulting in all of the elements that make the Exquisite Classique working in harmony to become a mechanism to create an absolute sound.
Moreover this loudspeaker comes standard with the Signature treatment from Kharma. The significant improvement as a result of the Signature treatment is realised by using the Silver/Gold Signature version of the Kharma Binding Post System, refining the internal cabling by proprietary Kharma processes and modifying the drivers for better performance.
The drivers can be seen as the engine of the loudspeaker, which must create the musicality that may be expected from the uncompromised design of the Exquisite Classique. Therefore the quality of the drivers is crucial for creating an ultra high-end sound.
Without a doubt, a focal point is the Diamond tweeter which is a standard throughout the Exquisite Collection. This high-frequency driver is a true technological wonder featuring a diamond cone which has undergone the CVD process where incredible stiffness is reached with a minimum thickness of only 50 µm, A human hair is in the range of 17 to 180 µm! The combination of the materials and the process involved results in a driver capable of reproducing impressively pure high frequencies.
