Innovative midrange driver and cabinet design
Unusual cabinet construction using curved sides and an aluminum dome and back as well as the CS3.7’s radical and unique driver technology are at the heart of this exciting new product that promises to be superior to almost every loudspeaker on the market at this time. This new approach to driver design allows both the CS3.7 midrange and tweeter to operate as near-perfect pistons and deliver pure, distortion free sound that provides the listener with an experience approaching the excitement of a live musical performance. The CS3.7 is expected to be available in the first quarter of 2007 at a suggested retail price of $9900 per pair.
