Metaxas & Sins, The Sirens SpeakersWith over 40 years of playback and 25 years of concert recording experience, Kostas Metaxas has never been known for being understated in his designs. Share
With more than a passing reference to Homer’s Odyssey, the apt metaphor is testimony to the sheer musicality and realism that allows this potent 3-way monitor, CNC carved from a block of solid aluminium (or titanium) to engage and captivate with its sound and invigorate the mind with it’s voluptuous sculptural aesthetic.
Using ideas borrowed from Neumann TLM 50 and M150 microphones, the SIREN embeds the Accuton drivers into spheres mounted onto an organic “time-aligned” sculpture. Despite the unique and unusual shape, the design is a seriously engineered, no-compromise loudspeaker with emphasis on absolute sound quality.
Accuton ceramic drivers are used in some of the most expensive systems currently available, but it’s only when you marry them to a curvaceous, inert, machined “body” that you can really hear – and probably for the first time, appreciate, their neutrality.
CNC allows us to sculpt a shape with incredible rigidity, in a much smaller form factor than is possible with other materials and at the same time, minimize baffle diffraction whilst maximizing internal volume for an ideal and extended bass response.
Since there are different “levels” of accuton ceramic drivers, up to and including their famous “diamond” tweeter, you have the choice of which tweeter, midrange and 8” woofer you would prefer to use now, or in the future. In a true “bespoke” manner, the configuration of drivers can be chosen.
