XAVIAN Orfeo Loudspeakers (Pair)
Twenty-five years of audio engineering experience have culminated in a two-way reference speaker of world-class calibre. Orfeo is a statement monitor that achieves supreme balance as well as wideband, full-range frequency response.
Musical colour, naturalness, coherence, dynamics, low distortion: all are here in abundance. To achieve these results, XAVIAN started with our historical collaboration with the Scandinavian manufacturers of drivers - and as the product evolved, chose to produce their own unique brand of drivers in Italy, AudioBarletta, which now surpass the performance of the Scandinavians. XAVIAN designers draw the mechanical parts, selected membranes, impregnation, materials and shapes, all to meet the dream of perfect music reproduction.
Orfeo's enclosure is made only from selected Italian oak: no artificial materials. The oak must be aged for three weeks before being milled and finished by XAVIAN's most experienced people. All of the finishes are superbly pleasing to the eye. The crossover network is composed of the best parts available in the world. The choice of these components was mainly influenced by their effect on quality of music reproduction. XAVIAN's original serial crossover “Phase Zero” system, for perfect phase-coherent response. Orfeo may be complemented by two different dedicated stands - a standard model available in all finishes, and the Ultimative stands, which offer even higher performance and weigh 31kg each. Stands are sold separately.
Orfeo establishes new global quality parameters, both in its price range and above it.
