Chiara Ultra Dimensional Speakers
The Chiara faithfully reproduces the sound of instruments and voices with stunning accuracy that enables you to clearly hear the acoustic detail of the performance space. Chiara's hand-built Aerostriction Tweeters and 8” Woofers are the products of decades of intense engineering and artisanal craftsmanship, made in small quantities without compromise. They are available exclusively from Daniel Hertz. Mark Levinson personally designed the Aerostriction Tweeters to produce the widest sound stage available. Chiara has an exclusive 8” woofer, handmade by Daniel Hertz, with a resonant frequency of 27Hz. This enables it to faithfully reproduce the main body of recording and it pairs beautifully with the open sound of the exclusive Aerostriction Tweeters. The pairing of these drivers means that the Chiara is capable of seamlessly reproducing sound from below 20Hz all the way through 20Khz with a dynamic range of 112db SPL. Chiara's cabinet is handmade and assembled by Daniel Hertz in Italy with ultra-dense Marine Grade Plywood for superior bass and energy management.
The Mighty Cat™ Class D chipset is at the heart of the Maria 50. It is a DAC with analog power output that has a native resolution of 384kHz. Mighty Cat™ has the most elegant and shortest signal path possible, eliminating signal degradation by multiple chassis systems with many meters of cable, power supplies and loading issues
Mighty Cat™ has no audible noise. High output current and low output impedance enable Mighty Cat™ to drive all high quality speakers with ease. Power supply regulation, a rare and costly feature of only a few pure analog amplifiers, is provided by a state-of-the art SMPS (switching mode power supply), enabling rock solid bass, astonishing punch and dynamics, and pin point imaging. 3 analog inputs have one megohm input impedance, an innovation introduced by Mark Levinson, which eliminates loading of analog source devices
