Clarisys Audio Choses Sonata For UK Distribution
Sonata has been signed to distribute Clarisys Audio's planar loudspeakers in the UK.
Clarisys Audio, the Swiss-based manufacturer of full-range ribbon speakers, has appointed North West London's Sonata as its exclusive distributor for the UK.
Inspired by classic ribbon speaker designs of the 1980s, Clarisys Audio have re-imagined them, using 21st Century materials and manufacturing processes to finally enable this transducer technology to fully realise its sonic potential.
Even the entry-level compact Minuet impressed us when we heard a pair being driven by Goldmund's NextGen amplification. So much so that we had an extended listening session.
With a nominal 3.5 Ohm impedance and an 86dB sensitivity (rising to over 90dB if the Neodymium magnet option is specified), these latest designs exhibit a much more amplifier-friendly load than those punishing historic ribbon speakers, meaning valve amps can now also join the party.
The current range has four models, ranging in price from £30,000 to £120,000, with Ferrite or Neodymium magnet options available on each design.
All Clarisys speakers come with a three-year warranty, are shipped in custom flight cases and can be ordered in any RAL colour finish at no extra cost.
Clarisys Audio is available from Robert Taussig Co. in London and will also be showcased at Loud & Clear (Edinburgh) in the Spring.
