National Audio Show 2011

Hart Audio is a speaker maker with a difference. Its designs incorporate multiple drivers in the rear of the cabinet, and these use the rear wall to produce well-dispersed bass frequencies. The new D&W Sonix is the company’s most attractive model to date and features no fewer than 18 4 1/2" drivers at the rear, a modified Tannoy 12" dual-concentric driver providing treble and midrange up front. The macassar cabinets are multi-faceted and look very attractive with their gold figuring, but it’s the dynamics that these speakers produce that give some credence to the 99dB sensitivity rating. Price is 9500 per pair in the UK.
