Arabesque Minissimo Diamond Edition – The Best Gets Better
The Arabesque Minissimo is already recognized as a modern classic – but our latest research combined with new developments in our Natural Science crossover topology convinced us that we could do even better.
Working closely with SEAS we developed an exclusive diamond tweeter design that improved high-frequency performance still further – but also allowed us to maintain true in-phase output across both drivers. We’d already used the best available silver in oil capacitors for the Minissimo’s crossover so there was nothing else for it – we had to build our own, dedicated designs that use our proprietary materials and know-how. Then we upgraded the internal wiring to Absolute Dream, added bi-wireable inputs and selected and pair-matched the bass-mid drivers even more rigorously, before building these stellar elements into the Minissimo’s unique, one-piece, thin-wall metal-resin cabinet. Of course, the whole speaker system still had to be optimized with subtle but all-important changes to the cabinet damping, but the end result exceeded even our expectations – the Arabesque Minissimo Diamond Edition.
As with all Crystal products, the true character lies in the exquisite attention to detail and nothing captures that better than the Diamond Edition’s sole identifying feature: The fragile diamond diaphragm is protected by a laser-cut grille that is as beautiful as it is clever, complex mathematics and supreme accuracy in manufacturing creating a grille that’s as acoustically transparent as it is elegant. That quality extends far beyond the visible. In fact, it’s a sentence (and a sentiment) that could sum up the whole speaker. As technically advanced and innovative as it is carefully sculpted and flawlessly finished, when it comes to compact speakers the Diamond Edition speaks with a voice of unmatched musical power
