“…These unique speakers are among the very best kit speakers that money can buy. Two separate stereo pairs of loudspeakers are presented, KIT260 & KIT360. In addition, a centre channel variant of the KIT260, the 260C was designed to complement the KIT260 and KIT360 for high-end Home Theatre A/V systems or for a high performance stereo system. Alternatively, you may decide on a mix of the HD260 (front) and HD360 (rear) together with the HD260C for the centre front channel. Whichever approach you take, you can be sure that you will be getting a sensational speaker system. Make no mistake, these ribbon units are the finest tweeters we have ever heard. They are so clean in their definition and the pin-point localisation of instruments in a stereo spread has to be heard to be believed. On top of that, these speakers have very low distortion – measured at around 0.3% THD at 1kHz and 1 watt…” Leo Simpson. Silicon Chip. December 2007
Fundamental physics support the ribbon as a perfect type of transducer. A thin light metal ribbon is suspended in a powerful magnetic field. The signal current passes through the ribbon in the magnetic field. The ribbon itself projects the sound faithfully and instantaneously. The ribbon serves both as voice coil and diaphragm. Every part of the ribbon is driven directly and simultaneously without any energy storage. No sound colouring at all in its usable frequency range up to 100KHz. Output voice therefore always perfectly replicates the input signal Maximum speed of response. Start and stop is instantaneous Maintains the leading edge of musical sounds and their harmonics Extremely low inter-modulation and harmonic distortion due to low mass Capable of the highest efficiency known in direct radiator transducers.
