The new X1t is based on the classic super mini monitor, the X1. This revised version seeks to pack as much performance as possible into a very small form factor. And finally, at a relatively low price, in comparison to performance.

  • extremely low level of noise/colouration of the sound
  • dramatic, energetic sound with a very wide soundstage
  • hear every detail, but no fatigue
  • very easy to listen to
  • a unique sonic holography
  • the sound appears right out of the blue
  • very authentic and close the original

Ribbon Tweeter

Has a Planar Magnetic Tweeter due to the tracks in the foil.  The foil is only 20 milligram and 11 mikron thick, so it has 50 times less mass in comparison to a conventional dome tweeter.  This means virtually no resonances or distortion.  The breakup point is at 82 KHz.

Ceramic with Tantalum coated bass drivers

The base of the membrane is an aluminium cone, which in itself, is very rigid and stiff.  One of the challenges with aluminium is that it has its own distinct sound/ringing.  To eliminate this, the drivers are all coated with a thin layer of ceramics, adding to the first layers in the design.  The coating is put on through a plasma process that binds the ceramic coating tot he aluminium.  With the aluminium-oxide ceramic cones, the first breakup mode was raised to 12,5kHz, which sets a high standard for cone-driver resonances.

The t in X1t means Tantalum.  Tantalum belongs to a class of metals known as refractory metals, which are defined by their strong resistance to heat and wear.  It has a melting point of 2,996 °C, the fourth highest of all metals.  This makes the membrane much stiffer and harder without adding any weight and therby raising hte breakup modes to 15kHz.

The motor system of the drive unit is an aero dynamic construction with a high-level ventilation which increases dynamics and lowers distortion.  High strength neodymium magnets allow for ultimate control in a unique construction.

The Crossover & Enclosure

The enclosure has been designed internally to allow the airflow and bass reflex port to provide much higher bass output and quality.
