A revolutionary reinvention of the reference speaker

The flagship of the 800 Series Diamond range is a no-compromise design: behind that strong visual statement is half a century of design and engineering, all in the cause of greater musical insight and impact.

Hear small details in a big way. Mounted atop the main enclosure, the Diamond dome tweeter in its solid aluminum housing delivers space, ambiance and precise soundstage imaging.

Less resonance, more dispersion. The Turbine Head’s massive mid-range housing is carefully shaped and inert, ensuring voices and instruments are delivered with extreme purity.

Voices and instruments are delivered with purity and precision, thanks to the smooth, accurate Continuum™ cone mid-range driver.

Solid, dramatic bass is delivered through the rigidity and lightness of the uniquely-shaped, variable thickness Aerofoil™ cone.

Unwanted resonances can blunt the punch of the sound: advanced Matrix bracing keeps the cabinet ultra-rigid and damps out superfluous vibrations.
