ALTA AUTDIO TITANIUM HESTA SPEAKERS


I've somehow missed interesting Hestia speakers from Alta Audio, that were introduced this year. Here are the official insights.

There are several unique design points of the Titanium Hestia.

First, it is in our Titanium series of the Alta Statement line. Therefore all of the formers (bobbins) are made of titanium for smoother more extended dynamics, power handling, and frequency response. Titanium’s added stiffness also allows for a larger voice coil. The midrange voice coils are 3 inch and the woofer voice coils are 5.1 inch. Titanium is an expensive and difficult material to work with, but well worth it for the increase in quality and performance.

ALTA AUDIO STATEMENT TOWER FLAGSHIP SPEAKERS

Every element of this speaker was designed with only one thought in mind, the best possible recreation of music. The shape of the speaker, a tall slender column narrowing at the center with rounded sides and top, has a sculptural beauty which is enhanced by our high gloss finish built to order in virtually any color. The shape of the speaker works to defeat diffraction distortion and minimize their sonic footprint. The Towers use 11 drivers, not merely to impress the eye, but to delight the ear. The design incorporates Dual Plane Mirror Imaging with the drivers mirror imaged in both the vertical and horizontal planes. The drivers have cascading crossovers that sum at the center point mimicking the theoretical perfection of an unlimited full frequency point source. All sides use our DampHard construction which offers a hard smooth surface to the drivers while damping out all unwanted cabinet resonances.

ERNST LEVY RARE VINYL

Ernst Levy (born Basel, Switzerland in 18 November 1895, and died in Morges, Switzerland 19 April 1981) was a Swiss musicologist, composer, pianist and conductor. He studied with Egon Petri and Raoul Pugno. David Dubal describes him as an "unusual and powerful pianist" who made "grandly conceived" recordings of the late Beethoven sonatas and captured "the very essence of the Faustian Liszt". His work as a musicologist and teacher brought him to the United States, where he taught at colleges including the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the University of Chicago and the New England Conservatory.

NEW VERASTARR EVO INTERCONNECTS WITH DIRECTCONNECT TECHNOLOGY

Verastarr writes: "It's a proud moment for Verastarr as we release our EVO interconnect utilizing our DirecConnect technology. This is both RCA AND XLR. The only change is how it connects inside the component. Either signal flanked by 2 grounds for RCA or Ground separating +signal and - signal for XLR. There are so many features in this design.. including zero solder and zero crimp joints which only take away from pure signal. Zero dissimilar metals the whole way which means Zero plating whatsoever. The Evo interconnect reduces breaks in the transmission line to ONLY 2 connection interfaces away from one piece of solid foil from PCB inside one component to PCB inside the other. A locking connector you can use with one hand..hello.
