Neat’s Petite Resurrected For 30th Anniversary
Neat Acoustics has announced a limited “Anniversary” edition of their classic Petite model.
Celebrating the 30th birthday of the Petite loudspeaker (and the birth of Neat Acoustics), the British speaker manufacturer has unveiled a special limited edition of the model that announced the brand's arrival at the Heathrow Penta Show.
The Neat Petite remained in production until 2016 and, during that time, received several updates and refinements.
Although still sporting virtually the same outer dimensions as the classic Petite models, we are told that the Petite 30 version is a ground-up design. Furthermore, Neat states that the latest iteration is the finest yet of this now-legendary loudspeaker.
The Neat Petite 30th-anniversary model features a new 150mm bass-mid unit with a proprietary polymer cone and a cast aluminium chassis paired with an advanced Air Motion Transformer tweeter. Controlling the hand-off between these drivers is a hand-built crossover that benefits from “top-grade components”. Around the rear, you'll find terminals for bi-wiring or bi-amping. Additionally, we are told that there is also a simple conversion to active operation.
Available in high-gloss black or white finish, each pair will be tested and signed off by Neat founder Bob Surgeoner and will come with a special gift pack and a “History Of Neat” booklet.
The Neat Petite 30 is limited to 100 pairs worldwide and has a UK retail price of £2,500.
