The development team around Manfred Diestertich of Audio Physic is tirelessly working on new, unusual solutions to make their already excellent loudspeakers a little bit better still.
Their latest coup, the development of the HHCM SL midrange driver, which does not require a center spider, led to the development of the current flagship Cardeas. The new chassis crowns a series of innovations that have found their way into the design.
Just a few examples are the use of a special ceramic foam to control airflow and stiffen the cabinet, or the multi-layered cabinet whose outer layers are bonded to the body using a permanently elastic adhesive.
What makes this speaker from Audio Physic special, however, is that the listener forgets all about these technical refinements from the very first beats of the music – the Cardeas makes music unconditionally neutral, with a clean, abyssal bass and, above all, imaging that seems to make the speakers as well as the listening room disappear completely.
