New materials and new techniques gave us the wings to further approach reality as the absolute reference in the Kharma Exquisite Collection. The far-reaching attention to detail makes this speaker range a class of its own. Now this extraordinary collection is extended with the Exquisite Extreme Grand, which will only have reality as a true competitor. The incredible attention to detail gave this new Extreme Grand the opportunity to materialize the absolute end of the high-end in audio. The Exquisite Grand already had claimed this extraordinary level, but Kharma proves again with this successor that we go beyond the limits of audio engineering.
The Exquisite Extreme Grand is the first ultra high-end loudspeaker in the world that is totally driven by composite based drivers. All these composite based drivers are especially developed by Kharma to realise the first Kharma loudspeaker that is totally driven by in-house developed drivers. As a result a new loudspeaker, which will once again extend the absolute end of high-end audio to a level beyond imagination and only has to compete with reality.
The Exquisite Extreme Grand is the successor of the Exquisite Grand, which was up till now the most sophisticated dynamic loudspeaker system in the world. However, the Extreme Grand takes its this place with pride.
It is a virtual point-source system, where the centre Diamond tweeters project the image very precisly with incredible stage depth, height and width. The human ear perceives the whole sound field from the Extreme Grand as if being emanated from a single point that contributes to a very natural soundstage, sometimes small when the recording space was small, sometimes very large when the recording was like that.
The Exquisite Extreme Grand comes with the Signature treatment of Kharma, which is mainly implemented to improve the structure born vibration properties of the driver chassis and to enhance the magnetic field handling as well as proprietary techniques. This 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 Extreme Grand is totally equipped with composite based drivers and therefore is unique in the world. All loudspeakers in the Exquisite Collection were already equipped with Diamond tweeters, but now Kharma has even gone one step further by this new feature.
The 15-inch woofers, the High Modulus Composite Drivers, are especially developed to deliver a very detailed bass. These woofers are equipped with a new cone technology developed by Kharma.
The Ultra-High Modulus 4-inch and 7-inch composite drivers are even made of a finer ultra high-tech fibre, which as a consequence increases the stiffness of the cones even more than already is the case by the High Modulus composite drivers. This obtained extra stiffness is utilized to produce the mid- and high-frequency range with incredible detail.

A Kharma product must not only have an unbelievable refined sound, which meets the needs of a true music lover, but also must have an astonishing finish to compete with the musicality of the system. As known by Kharma, every customer can have a taste of its own. Therefore Kharma developed three programs to be able to fulfil all levels of customization: the Primary Stock Program, the Kharma Optionary Program and the Kharma Privileges Program.
Primary Stock Program
This program has been targeted as to create the shortest possible delivery time for the official Kharma products. This program is therefore based on the most popular Kharma finishes, which have proven their looks in the past by many successful sales. In this way we can deliver both the high refined sound as the astonishing finish that can be expected from Kharma.
