∙ New Cabinet Design, extensive design work had been done here. Externally the cabinet looks like a regular rectangular cabinet. The internal design is the main reason why the cabinet is dead quiet, hence a reduction in cabinet colouration. The benefits here are faster and cleaner bass transients where differing bass notes are more perceptible. The cabinets are still in genuine timber veneer.
∙ All new drivers were developed for this new speakers. Most speaker drivers are made from pressed steel or polymer(Plastic), simply to reduce the price of the drivers. Orpheus had decided to utilise a cast Aluminium basket, a material and technique, renown for it’s reduced resonance quality. With speaker design any reduction in unwanted resonance is desirable to achieve a better result.
The decision was made to return to a Paper cone driver as oppose to Kevlar that Orpheus had use for the last 10 years. Paper does give a warmer and more neutral sound signature that was reminiscent of Orpheus.
The voice coil motor system of the drivers is not enclosed within the magnet. This gives it better cooling benefits and power handling characteristics.
∙ The price, this is a win-win situation for all concerned. We started off striving to design a cheaper speaker and a minimum drop in sound quality. The result was a cheaper speaker with a superior sound than the out-going Aurora range.
