The brand that delivers excellence in driver, cabinet, electronic and acoustic design is Monitor Audio. Since 1972, Monitor Audio’s near fanatical commitment to quality in every aspect of loudspeaker design coupled with its willingness to innovate has inspired global recognition and acclaim. Daring to challenge design orthodoxy has been its signature approach.
When Monitor Audio launched its R852MD loudspeaker the first model to incorporate a metal dome tweeter – it caused quite a stir. Until that time, most metal domes were single-metal types made from copper or titanium and virtually all sounded unconvincing. The R852 used an aluminium-magnesium alloy dome and sounded significantly better and smoother than all of its single-metal rivals. It also incorporated ferro-fluid damping/cooling of the metal voice-coil former and a vented voice coil mechanism for better heat dissipation. These radical design elements formed the basis for successive generations of C-CAM metal domes.
