The new Callas speakers use techniques and components that represent state of the art in electroacoustics, starting from the cabinet, the speakers and the crossovers. The result is tonally correct, realistic, engaging, and above all enjoyable to listen to.

The Callas is an example of elegance and fits discreetly into any environment. Callas 2014 is a compact two-way loudspeaker (14 litres) of medium-small size which can be placed on a shelf or a stand . Its main feature is the low-frequency response, extended and controlled, combined with a  high sensitivity typical of floorstanding speakers. The woofer is a 7-inch, "long-throw", with annealed polypropylene diaphragm combined with the Scanspeak 9700 tweeter (the same used for Tebaldi, Malibran, Caruso and the new Grand Callas 2014) . The woofer is reflex-loaded with a rear port. Great care has been taken in the elimination of the internal reflections to ensure maximum transparency in  voice reproduction. They are equipped with a switch that allows you to adjust the output of the vocal range (+2 dB between 300 and 3000 Hz). This increases  the flexibility of the speaker , allowing it to be used in  many different listening rooms with varied acoustics. The new Callas produces a soundstage that expands in three dimensions with  excellent impulse response and power, plus dynamics and extension at low frequencies typical of systems of much higher dimensions. This speaker is also suitable for  "near field" listening .

Available in Mahogany & Walnut Finishes.
