Kharma Elegance dB9-S and S7


System features
One of the many redesigned parts of the Elegance is the grill of the dB9-S. This new improved grill is made detachable by embedded magnets to really have the freedom to adapt the Elegance dB9-S to your own style. With grill the Elegance gives an elegant and luxury feeling, where the dB9-S without grill shows the beauty of the new composite drivers without actual showing that a grill could be attached. Therefore the Elegance dB9-S can easily blend in both contemporary as well as modern interiors.

Moreover the Elegance dB9-S has the new special feature of trimmable luxury rings around the drivers, which hide the mechanical screws of the driver. The unique feature is that the rings are made magnetic and so can easily be interchanged with other versions of the trimmable rings.

New connectors have especially been designed for the new Elegance series, which is done for user convenience and for high pressure quality contact. As a result the Kharma Binding Post system for the Elegance (KBPS-EL) can easily give great contact pressure applied by just the twist of a hand.

The Elegance S7 is the modest sized successor of the Elegance dB7 and dB9, but still contains the musicality you may expect from an Elegance speaker.
