Of simple luxury and elegance, the timeless Solo is a competent floorstander. Whatever the genre, whatever the medium, the resulting sonic picture is open, fluent and involving. Furthermore, the clean lines and smooth curves are not merely for the eye. Tall floorstanders suffer fomt internal standing waves around 150Hz. The tapered Solo cabinet eliminates these, ultimately leading to a cleaner and faster bass response.
The Solo is the first loudspeaker that has been fully developed in our new 60 square meter acoustically treated listening space. Systematic investigations in the controlled environment have led to the next generation of Davone sound. With the top and mid range driver being best in class in their own right, and through detailed amplitude and phase adjustments combined with optimal cabinet placement, the individual drivers deliver more than just the sum of their parts.
Just like the acoustic design, the Solo also represents the next generation in cabinet construction. Enhanced computer aided design (CAD) capabilities have made it possible to create a unique design that takes wood bending to the next level. Through bending and twisting, the side panels are stiffer and more irregular. Both enhancements improve the acoustic properties leading to a cleaner sound. A typical example of form follows function.
Most manufacturers shy away from using bend plywood for loudspeaker cabinets. Which is understandable because it may twist and turn in undesired directions, making accurate machining of parts and final assembly difficult. This is not critical in the typical application in furniture. Speaker cabinet construction is a whole other matter though. The production of Solo would not have been possible without our committed design and the extra care of hand build production.
