Kharma nieuws
« on: March 21, 2007, 21:27:23 »

Kharma komt met een nieuwe luidspreker, de CE-3.2.2. Dit is de bestaande CE-3.2 met een extra woofer



Quote
Kharma presents the long awaited Ceramique 3.2.2. This loudspeaker is based on the successful Ceramique 3.2. Although it looks as slim as the Ceramique 3.2, the volume of this speaker is actually much bigger. The new speaker is equipped with a second bass-unit, hence the name 3.2.2.

The Ceramique 3.2.2 will be available in both passive and active version.

Members of our development team have done their utmost to finish this beauty in time. If everything goes according to plan it will be revealed at the show in Paris this weekend.


Groeten Jan

Blijft het nog steeds een tweeweg  of gaan ze er een drieweg-systeem (of 2,5) van maken? En wil Karma een compleet nieuwe speaker lanceren, of alleen dieper+ meer output dan het huidige model?

Vrijdag weer eens wezen buurten bij Kharma te Breda.
Alle luisterruimte's zijn sinds de HT-Forum dag aan het begin van dit jaar behoorlijk onder handen genomen wat betreft aankleding en jawel ook de akoestische eigenschappen is men aan het aanpakken.

O.a geluisterd naar het prototype van de Exquisite Mini Gallileo, een upgrade van de bestaande Exquisite Mini t.b.v. het 25 jarig bestaan van Kharma die toch wel een ander geluidsbeeld neerzette (groter) dan de standaard mini's. Er wordt onder andere een extra ceramische laag/mid woofer ingezet per kant. Afwerking heel erg "bling bling" en vooral zo uitgevoerd voor de oosterse landen waar naartoe wordt ge-exporteerd. Zelfs de basreflex pijp en de totale aansluitplaat aan de achterkant waren verguld (ik zie er het nut echter niet van in). Luidspreker werd aangestuurd door proto-type's van voor- en eindversterkers waar ik op verzoek van OLS geen details van bekend maak. Prijskaartje van deze in aantal gelimiteerde luidsprekers: € 100.000,-  :o  :o

Tevens geluisterd naar de PA-versie "Cinematrix": een ruimte met maar liefst 24 stuks 10" subwoofers, 7 forse ribbon tweeters en ook nog eens 24 (?) mid units. Dit alles gevoed door een grote stapel Matrix versterkers.

Hoe klinkt dat: enorm overweldigend, kan werkelijk oorverdovend hard zonder echt te vervormen. Klankmatig niet mijn keus maar wel leuk om mee te maken. Er is ook nog een versie van de Cinematrix die gebruikt maakt van de ceramische units die Kharma in hun luidsprekers gebruikt, ben benieuwd hoe dat klinkt.

Al met al weer een leuke middag gehad en me weer prachtig vermaakt  ;D

Groeten Jan

De Gallileo versie is wel heel erg bling bling !

Kharma gaat in zee met Spyker

Quote
« With Spyker at the Salon, GenevaVictor Muller talks about Kharma
Victor Muller, president owner of Spyker cars, talks to Autojunk about the team-up with Kharma. A small quote from the interview:

Q: Are there things you would absolutely want to share?

A: What we present today as well is a very beautifull partnership with Kharma. Spyker is Dutch; Kharma is Dutch. Kharma is one of the absolute leading manufacturers worldwide of sound systems. They produce the speakers that are being shown here, they make the most fantastic loudspeaker sets you can buy, which really reduce Bang & Olofson to kintergarten level.
We have made a deal with Kharma that all Spykers will be equiped with Kharma equipment in the future. I can show in a moment the ones already built in in the Aileron and every Spyker can be equiped with it. It is something so unbelievable. Such a beautiful system. Made by Kharma specially for Spyker.

Q: That is very nice. But say I am very hardcore and I don’t want a sound system at all, is that an option.

A: Most certainly! when we started 80% of the orders without a sound system. Actually almost everyone thought that the motor was an adaquate sound system, but when you get through the first layer of buyers and you’re moving on to the people that use such a car more daily; those people really want a sound system. So therefor we now have a soundsystem by default.

After a long period of development and testing, the Matrix P1.0 Preamplifier is now available. The P1.0 is a fully balanced single-ended stereo Class A Preamplifier. A signal path without coupling capacitors and specially selected non-magnetic 0,5% tolerance resis¬tors, guaranty a sound of highest trans¬pa¬rency.
 
The output level is controlled by a high quality motorized potentiometer. The power supply uses unique filter capacitors, specially de¬signed for Kharma, to assure optimum noise reduction.
 
As may have been expected the level and appearance has been fine-tuned perfectly for the MP 150 Power Amplifiers. They have the same height and dept, and can be purchased in matching colours.

The sound quality of the synergy of MP150 and P1.0 has been priority nr. 1 for this pre ampli¬fier.   The fully balanced single-ended class A amplifier preamplifier has a power consump¬tion of 30 Watt, a input sensitivity at maximum gain of 2,4 Volt and a gain of 18 dB.
The frequency range  goes from 0-200k Hz (-3dB, +0dB) and the THD is less than 0.004 %

Exquisite MP1000 Power Amplifier

______________________________________
 
An Exquisite Design
______________________________________
 
Delivering 380 Watts with an unbelievable low distortion figure, the Kharma MP1000 is the best and most spectacular Power Amplifier ever made by Kharma.
 
 
 
 
The Exquisite MP 1000 Power Amplifier.
    Developed out of the schematics of the well know Kharma MP350, the MP1000 extreme specifications required the Kharma Develop-ment team to create a few completely new circuits, some of them using technologies never used before in Audio Amplifiers.
 
The MP1000 new circuitry includes a revolutionary full protection circuit for the amplifier itself and its associated speaker, a necessary precaution for the power capability and the incredible speed of the new amplifier. The input circuit is also completely new using only discrete components.
The output circuit uses a unique switching topology to increase the amplifiers power and speed above anything ever achieved in other Kharma amplifiers.
The Power Supply uses unique Transformers and filter Capacitors, which where specially designed for Kharma, to insure optimum noise reduction.
Resulting in a 3D soundstage never encoun-tered before. A signal path made out of pure silver wire, specified by Kharma, guaranties a sound of highest transparency.

Retail price for Benelux is € 40.000 / pair.

Visionaire 1

______________________________________
 
All in one High-End Audio/Video desk
______________________________________
 
Inspired by Luxury cars Kharma decided to serve the A/V market with a completely new concept of home cinema. This massive ca¬binet beholds all: it's a 5.1 – 7.1 system including source, and heavy amplification.
The big plasma screen is embedded inside beau¬tiful polished aluminium and crafted leather. The elevator for the screen is controlled by the remote control as is almost everything else.
 
Separate drawers offer space to put away the remote, or to stall your (Blu-ray) DVD's and CD's. That is: if you do not want to rip those to your media PC.
 
The subs are also driven by Kharma amplification and are explosion-level guaran-teed. Available soon: matching hanging sur-round speakers.   
 
The Visionaire 1.

The first AV1 was shown at the 2008 F1 race at Monaco and is now shown with our new distributor in Dubai.

This multi-channel project is something you need to see and that needs to be expe-rienced to be believed and understood.

Cable Upgrades

______________________________________
 
New spades on our Reference Loudspeaker Cables
______________________________________
 
As of now the Kharma Reference Loudspeaker Cable will be equiped with new spades. As in the conductors, these spades are made of high quality pure silver, realizing a high-quality one-material conduc¬tor-termination-circuit. Silver is also the best electrical conductor of all metals and it gets better in time, contrary to copper!
 
 
 
 
 
The new Reference Loudspeaker Cable spades.
    The insulator is carefully picked, so the pure silver conductors and the insulator make a perfect match.
 
A vibration isolating tubing is surrounding the conductors. This tubing reduces vibrations to a minimum before reaching the pure silver conductors.
All this leads to a clear and very revealing cable, with lots of definition, dynamics, air and an open and wide stereo image.
 
The Kharma Reference Loudspeaker Cable is handcrafted with expertise and dedication. No excessive decoration and unnecessary complexity, make this cable true value for your money and without a doubt the best loudspeaker cable in its price league.

Grand Exquisite Midi in production


* * *

New exquisite Kharma loudspeaker about to set a new Reference

 
* * *

In our previous e-mail we informed you about the Grand Grand Exquisite. But since some elevators are too small for a Grand Grand or even a Grand we came up with a smaller (less tall) version of the Grand Exquisite.

Now this should be an easy mnemonic to know which model from which model: count the number of diamond tweeters:

1 diamond tweeter: Exquisite Reference

2 diamond tweeters: Grand Exquisite Midi

3 diamond tweeters: Grand Exquisite

4 diamond tweeters: Grand Grand Exquisite

The Grand Exquisite Midi will be available July 1st and some info will be launched on our renewed website shortly.
