ARTOS Audio Mirage

Diamond $65,000

The »MIRAGE« is one of our top-of-the-line models, featuring high efficiency, linear impedance behavior and minimal phase shifting.

This model equally suits for combination with single ended triode as well as transistor amplification. Unconventional design solutions and perfect craftsmanship make them outstanding in many respects.

At ARTOS Audio we stand for a pure, timeless design which integrates perfectly into high quality interior design concepts of the speaker itself and domestic environments as well.
Special designed ceramic drivers systems are supplied by the renowned manufacturer Accuton. For a deep and precise bass reproduction four 7.0” Woofers are used. A 7.0” ceramic midrange driver delivers a smooth and rich vocal timbre. On top of these, a 1.2” ceramic Tweeter takes care of the high frequency range. For best results, this musical masterpiece might be euqipped with a 1.2” Black Diamond Tweeter as an option.

Because these drivers are custom made by Accuton to match the behaviour of the Air-FLow-Cabinet, we have been able to develop a crossover that uses only a few high quality parts from Mundorf. The perfect phase linearity and impulse response are the result of this design.
