 MODELS  

 

Bliss  Loudspeaker System  1250 euro

 



The BLISS makes use of the exclusive loading system developed for the Offrande Signature, giving it the ability to reproduce a sound environment considerably larger than the modest size and architecture of its enclosure would lead one to expect.

Spontaneous and lively with rich and marvelous tone, it provides a very smooth subjective spectrum of sound and is capable of exploring the very low end without hump or drag effect.

The BLISS doesn't pretend to be "as big as a beef" but should suit those who know what real live music is all about.

LOUDSPEAKER CABINET

 
The traditional loading system commonly used (such as reflex system or sealed box) generates high pressure levels inside the cabinet close to their tuning frequency, the consequences of which can be easily heard across a very wide portion of the audio spectrum: sound box effect, lack of speed, and tonal distortion.

The four-coupled cavities loading principal used in the Offrande Signatures and BLISS allows a regulation of air flow inside the cabinet, resulting in lower air elasticity. Its expansion profile has been perfectly tuned, thanks to the use of analog signals to identify the appearance of a flat wave. This double compression chamber, dampened with a viscoelastic compound, gives a very high velocity to the enclosed air, which then reaches the two other uneven internal chambers through a tuned event port. These two cavities dampen the air flow at the exit of the compression chamber. One of them is tuned by a slim event port at the frequency resonance of both cabinet and woofer.

The deep bass which results is tonally pure and distortion free; the establishment of the wave trains is very fast.

EUTERPE Loudspeaker 1650 euro

Using the same drivers as the DUET, the EUTERPE was conceived with the same exacting standards and spirit as the most ambitious products of our range.

Its performance is outstanding, especially in the very low end frequencies, which it explores with ease and acuteness and without humps or drag effects.

While easy to drive, it will reveal the range of its abilities most effectively when associated with high performance electronics with sufficient power supply.

LOUDSPEAKER CABINET


The loading system uses a triangular transmission line that makes possible a fast and deep bass response without coloration or distortion and a very fast establishment of wave trains, avoiding parallel partition and stationary waves.

Its tweeter is installed in a separate cavity to guarantee complete inertia, avoiding all mechanical interaction with the woofer.

EMERAUDE  3950 euro

The Fruit of meticulous work and of 40 years of experimenting, measuring, and listening, this floorstanding loudspeaker integrates numerous innovations in design and technology.
Its two driver units and the architecture of its loading system benefit from our most recent researches.



The 6.5'' woofer uses a sophisticated cone made of long carbon and kevlar fibers whose characteristics of steepness and internal damping are exceptional.

It is activated by a double magnet system with ventilated core. This technique avoids the increase of air viscosity enclosed in the air-gap of the magnet system at high levels and insures a perfect cooling of the moving coil wound[ed] on both sides of a 38 mm kapton high temperature support. This sophisticated technique avoids all resonance in the support and allows perfect cooling of the two layers of the deoxygenated pure copper moving coil.

The traditional dust cap is replaced with a solid phase plug which eradicates the turbulences generated at the center of the cone, optimizing frequency and transient responses.

The tweeter utilizes a very short moving coil which moves within the air-gap of a powerful neodymium magnet system. It is fixed between two hemispherical rings built of a very light soaked fabric that constitutes the cone. The symmetry of displacements of this moving coil allows it to act as a perfect piston (no swing phenomena of the dome as with traditional dome tweeters). Phase anomalies are also avoided. Its frequency response is perfectly flat, its resonance frequency is very low, and its off-axis response is excellent.

The loading system uses a triangular transmission line that allows a quick and deep bass response without coloration or distortion and a very fast establishment of wave trains. Machined under presses, the cabinetwork generates no resonances or vibration, resulting in a very clean and fast sound with striking transparency and naturalness.

Though its high sensitivity and benign impedance make the Emeruade very easy to drive, we recommend high level electronics to enable this speaker to achieve all that it is capable of.

OFFRANDE SUPREME  price 5400 euro

 

Very soon after I saw the first outlines of the technical study of the original Offrande and then saw the results of the first tests, it was clear to me what the potential for the speaker could be. From that point, it became for me a continuous source of passion, astonishment, and joy.

What has struck me most forcibly about our new Offrande Supreme is its increased ability to capture both the intimacy of a musical performance and the integrity and wholeness of musical expression: its recovery of a performance is sensitive both to details of timbre and the fullness of instrumental sound. The key to this rare achievement is the Supreme's remarkable ability to enable each individual instrument to find its own space within which it opens out freely. As a result, the Offrande Supreme has an extraordinary capacity to create a focused and strong musical bond between the music and the listener.

Since its conception in 1994, I have worked ceaselessly to enable the Offrande to evolve, attempting in each new iteration of the speaker to get closer to the musicians and the music. Today's Supreme testifies to the constancy of my search for the best possible result. The smallest details of the speaker's architecture and of its components have been meticulously optimized, so that nothing under our control can block its performance and its natural breathing.

The Offrande Supreme is designed for those who no longer find the spectacle of 'high fidelity' an attraction. More than ever this speaker makes it possible to understand without effort the expression and artistic intentions of musicians.

CONCORDE SIGNATURE price 8900 euro 

When designing the Concorde, our main goal was to achieve the widest bandwidth and

the most precise transient response, while keeping it user friendly in terms of cabinet size. Listening to the Concorde is, in more ways than one, an unforgettable experience.

The sense of reality it conveys when recreating music is probably its most striking characteristic.

The timbres and their harmonic structure are so truthful and vivid that each instrument is portrayed in the most life-like and natural way. Those who enjoy live music will find them astonishingly familiar, with that feeling of "déjà-vu" springing from their concert hall experience.

Micro-details which so many designs intentionally bring to the fore to give a false impression of transparency, are rendered the way you would really hear them, as part of a wider musical environment.
The squeaking of a chair, the breathing of a performer, whispers, the hall ambiance, all melt intimately into the music to recreate a coherent and global message.

The perfectly designed loading system of its amazing woofers allows the Concorde to go extremely low, and to do so without any cabinet resonance, and without blurring low frequencies. Bass is deep, naturally sweet and bouncy, with remarkable drive.
Its midrange allows timbres to bloom naturally. Fast, with low directivity a total absence of coloration, and exceptional linearity, it portrays the artistic intentions of the performers in the most accurate yet relaxed way. The recording venue is recreated faithfully.

Its extraordinary double ribbon tweeter adds to an already impressive ensemble. Perfectly in phase with the midrange driver, it allows the treble to shine and to melt smoothly with the rest of the music, recreating a coherent wave front. The strain associated with some tweeters is completely absent from such a design.
The Concorde was, in term of design ,both a challenge and a treat. It portrays music in a way that will amaze concert lovers.

Though they require a reasonably wide room to give the best of themselves, setting up these speakers up is quite easy, thanks to the painstaking attention that went into cabinet damping .

Also, in order to allow them to really shine, and to benefit from their startling dynamics in the low frequencies it is recommended to match them with amplifiers endowed with a high current capability.

 

 

 

 

 GENERAL DESIGN
Tuned triangular transmission line for the woofer. The midrange driver is encased in a dedicated enclosure, tuned with a second enclosure through a Helmholtz resonator in order to eliminate the main cabinet resonance. Tweeter is unbaffled. Adjustable spikes are provided, as well.


DRIVERS

ORFEO   PRICE 6500 euro  

        

ORFÉO is a somewhat smaller, more room friendly, and less costly version of the monumental CONCORDE Signature. It inherits the spirit and unusual technical and musical qualities of its larger sibling and uses some of its components.
It is a two and a half-way system. It is lively, very fast, and provides gorgeous reproduction of musical timbres. Deep bass has great energy and power. Thanks to its extraordinary double ribbon tweeter housed in a solid wood head and to the carbon/kevlar/graphite compound of the cones of its splendid woofers, the ORFÉO's timbres have extreme delicacy and great naturalness, with no projection effect at loud levels.
Thanks to the application of our research and technical study of the damping optimization of cabinet panels and techniques for machining them, we have achieved an ideal impulse response. No vibration is generated by the cabinet, resulting in a clean, very fast sound with striking transparency and naturalness.
The ORFÉO is endowed with high sensitivity and, thanks to the geometry of its unbaffled tweeter, has very low directivity. It is very easy to drive, though like the CONCORDE Signature, it will give its best when driven by powerful amplifiers of high current capability. The ORFÉO is perfectly at ease with all the styles of music and is a welcome addition to the Reynaud line of speakers.
