What is stereo?

There are now two system of high fidelity, monophonic (monaural) and stereophonic. Monophonic is a system that starts from one microphone and is fed through a single high fidelity set. Stereophonic is a double system. Two separate microphones are placed at different sides of the orchestra and two different systems are used to keep the two signals or channels separated. Two separate speakers are used, placed on different sides of you room. Stereo is much like 3-D photography, two slightly different sound reach your ears giving you a new dimension in sound.

Stand - mount/Bookshelf loudspeaker system

Braced cabinet construction dramatically reduces cabinet resonance by adding the twin

virtues of strength and rigidity to the cabinet walls. Gold-plated terminals permit bi-wiring

or bi-amplification.

Having the tweeter separate from the main cabinet readily allows it to be set back and

time aligned with the acoustic centre of the bass/midrange cone, which is located behind

the plane of the front baffle, and minimises the effects of diffraction from the cabinet edges.

This results in improved imaging and coherence

Technical highlight

B&W's Tweeter on top technology ensures that the sound remains focused

and time-sensitive and that the stereo image is presented with unparalleled

three dimensional accuracy.

Kevlar®: B&W developed and patented the method of using Kevlar® fo

loudspeaker cones to reduce unwanted standing waves. DuPont originally

created Kevlar® for use in bulletproof vests.
