What is stereo?
There are now two system of high fidelity, monophonic (monaural) and stereophonic. Monophonic is a system that starts from one microphone and is fed through a single high fidelity set. Stereophonic is a double system. Two separate microphones are placed at different sides of the orchestra and two different systems are used to keep the two signals or channels separated. Two separate speakers are used, placed on different sides of you room. Stereo is much like 3-D photography, two slightly different sound reach your ears giving you a new dimension in sound.

- The latest type HD 1000 tweeter designed and produced by Celestion to the highest standards, the frequency range of this unit is from 2,5 kHz to 28 kHz. The domed diaphragm ensures good dispersion and low distortion.
- Anechoic cellular foam wedge and lining absorbs unwanted acoustic energy within the enclosure and prevents the formation of standing waves which would be detrimental to the loudspeaker performance.
- New NS8 (8") bass midrange drive unit with specially plasticized fibre cone to prevent resonsnces whilst the neoprene roll front suspension and concentric rear suspension permits the 1-inch long coil the large movements essential for the correct reproduction of low bass notes, with minimal distortion. A powerful 51,000 Maxwells (11,000 Gauss) magnet system weighing 1,1 kg controls these excursions, and all the components are housed in a new pressed steel plated chassis.
- Units mounted flush to eliminate diffraction effects and tunnel resonances; covered by acoustically transparent grille cloth for maximum presence.
- ABR (Auxiliary Bass Radiator) New 8" unit with front neoprene roll suspension and pressed steel plated chassis, developed to work in concert with the bass/midrange unit.
