Daedalus Loudspeakers Overview
Too often 'high-end audio' speakers lose their sense of realism as you move around the space, often sounding sterile or incoherent once you move out of the 'sweet spot'; but not the Daedalus systems which are noted for a stable, cohesive soundstage that fills a house with music.
Daedalus Audio speaker systems are unique in achieving high efficiency without using horns while maintaining a very smooth, natural response on and off axis, combined with life like dynamics and detail. Our drivers have paper cones and fabric surrounds that enable these systems to reproduce the transients and subtleties that common speakers suppress.
The cabinets are of solid hardwood with dovetail joinery and an old-world style hand-rubbed oil varnish finish. Solid hardwood with this fine furniture finish has a natural presence that is both visual and tactile; they look like they sound, very real. The hardwood cabinets are incredibly stiff and project all the energy of the music without adding resonances or coloration.
Of course, to do all this correctly takes a great deal of skilled craftsmanship; these are handcrafted and unique speaker systems with a limited production.
The components and level of quality are the same in all our models. The different models are designed for unique applications of room, lifestyle and tonal preference. These systems are perfect for accurate two-channel listening in large and small rooms as well as open floor plan homes and Home-Theater. Bass is extended with excellent control and detail, the whole system is much faster and effortlessly reproduces all the subtle transients and dynamics that make music exciting. The vocals and highs are full-bodied while also maintaining detail and clarity.
Our state of the art crossover designs are electronically and sonically 'transparent' with near flat impedance curves. This "open window" design approach coupled with high sensitivity allows any of the Daedalus speaker to mate effortlessly with any quality amplifier from a 2 watt SET to 500 watt Class A Solid State.
We are constantly working to improve our systems and our promise is to do all we can to make an upgrade path easily available to our customers. Most of our older models can be upgraded at a reasonable cost. These really are lifetime speakers.
