Davone Reference One

No compromise. Is the best way to describe the new Davone flagship model. With precise engineering guiding us every step of the way, we have created a loudspeaker that excels in making music sound more beautiful than you are used to. Sounding clean, natural and unconstrained, hidden subtleties in the music are revealed while always remaining laid back, like only the best loudspeakers can.

Extensive Bracing

The speakers vibrate and in response the cabinet vibrates. Cabinet vibrations are delayed relative to the music and we hear this as sound becoming blurred, less well defined, mostly in the lower midrange. The cabinet is made from 25mm thick form pressed wood. Both the curved shape and high pressure and temperature bending process further increase the stiffness. The inside is further reinforced with extensive bracing of 18 and 22mm thick plywood in strategic places.
