Based on our proven hyper-exponential woven carbon fiber driver technology, a newly revised, dedicated main driver was optimized for the TAKSIM. Covering an unusually wide range of the musical spectrum, our unique transducer is directly coupled to amplifiers.
It requires no complex crossovers. This avoids interruptions to musical signal, dynamic compression and phase errors. Every tiny musical detail is received with fast, dynamic coherent and precise response.

Frequency Response 31Hz to 40KHz
Power Handling 150 Watts RMS
Height 46" (117 cm)
Width 10" (25 cm)
Depth 16" (40 cm)
Weight 88 lbs (40 kg) each
TAKSIM cabinets are densely coated Nextel in anthracite colour. It is a unique finish that absorbs light and sound creating a very silent cabinet. They are also very rigidly constructed with dense panels and several perforated braces in critical points, horizontally and vertically. Superfluous vibration energy from the enclosure is significantly reduced and does not interfere with the clarity of sound. The main driver is also free from sympathetic frame vibrations. Our unique mechanical grounding system drains mechanical vibration energy from the drivers, allowing them to perform optimally.
The new pure Beryllium dome tweeter is custom optimized to acoustically match perfectly with the main driver. Positioned and aligned precisely in a recessed acoustic wave guide our new Beryllium dome tweeter sounds precise, fast, detailed and well extended to very high frequencies. An excellent non inductive capacitor is used as the sole high pass filter at an exact frequency point to coherently integrate the drivers. Specially selected, cryogenically treated, OCC single crystal pure copper conductors with Teflon dielectric in appropriate thicknesses are used internally to ensure perfect signal transmission to the drivers.
Patented Surreal Acoustic Lenses are now installed in the core center of our main drivers. They are unique and are very effective in preventing the formation of vortex generated by air turbulence and related noise inherently present in cone shaped drivers. Equipped with Surreal Acoustic lenses and free from the turbulence noise our drivers perform with enhanced clarity, natural tonal balance and wider dispersion.
Assembled inside the binding post input connectors, patented Magnetic Conduction Signal Wave Guides are used. With the Magnetic Conduction Signal Wave Guides, strong magnetism keeps the electrical signal flow aligned and random pathways for electrons within and along the conductor is minimized. This also promotes signal transfer where resistance to the signal is highest and where the greatest losses can take place. Results are dynamic, open and spacious sound with greater detail retrieval.
Following the assembly in our own facilities, all our drivers are placed on a break-in rack with high-level test tones for at least seventy-two hours. They are then tested at several steps for meaningful matching to very tight tolerances. This is essential for realistic renditions of harmonics and spatial soundstage images. They will sound good out of the box but further break in period will be required to realize the full performance potential. An average of 200 hours or longer, depending on the loudness levels, and type of music played will start revealing more sonic refinement.
