The ETHER loudspeaker is a new breed of speakers based on the earlier models but with updated drivers (sliced paper woofer and Beryllium dome tweeter in a 2.5 configuration. Really liking the sonic qualities that 2 way speakers have but wishing for more impact and bass is a secret wish list for most. Isn't this the number one complaint for speakers? It sure is. Some install subwoofers to compensate but most of the time it is really hard to get great coherency overall with subwoofers.
The 2.5 comes to the rescue and keeps things coherent. We have the openness and disappearing act that two way speakers are known for with a deep bass foundation that is to die for. Crisp, crystal clear highs are in step with the mids that are totally seducing and expansive. High quality rock finish, thick aluminum custom made speaker supports with soft feet and ratcheting speaker connectors complete this top of the line musical communicator. Impressions can be found on the REVIEW page.

Upon the first audition, a full range sound with a strong bass foundation are evident with the ETHER loudspeaker. What strikes next is the openness and intimacy that unfolds in a vast, multilayered, powerful sound wave that mimics "in the room presence" like never before. The musical message is articulated in a direct and fresh fashion that is truly stunning.
