So much more than meets the eye...Ray-S is a loudspeaker that avails itself of the same recognized technological value of Grande, with the objective of achieving new levels of performance in the reproduction of sound. With state of the art components this loudspeaker lofts beautifully three-dimensional soundstages, exhibits admirably neutral tonal response, and delivers unexpectedly explosive dynamics. Fully handcrafted in Denmark
The acoustic design
The fluid cabinet shape has not just been an aesthetic choice. The unique baffle shape, combined with the close proximity and off centre mounting of the tweeter and mid toner, gives a more balanced in-room response than the popular tower shaped speaker. Practically this means that great results can be obtained without re-doing the acoustics of your listening room.
Though Ray-s is of relative small design, it features a first class 8” woofer, hand assembled in Denmark. The very rigid hard paper cone operates as a piston over the working frequency range. In combination with the low loss linear suspension and a symmetrical magnet system, the distortion is very low and transient reproduction is perfect.
Water cut solid steel stand
The Ray is elevated to the correct listening position and angle by a dedicated stand, shaped by laser and water cutters. Through it's design with up to 25mm thick solid steel, the stand provides a low compliance base from a sleek design. The small footprint also decouples the Ray cabinet from the floor. This effective stand design secures the fine dynamics in the low frequencies for more accurate listening.
