Duntech - Senator Signature - Floor Standing Speakers
The Senator is the second in Duntech's new line up of the latest designs from Duntech Audio.
To design the Senator, their design team had to follow a set of rules they call “Duntech design directives”.
Firstly, the cabinet has to be a sealed box. The musical transient is faster in a sealed box. Duntech call this “attack and decay”. The attack has to be instant and decay should not linger on too long. If it does it will add to the distortion and will come through as a smear mainly in the lower frequencies, such as a muddy bass.
The speaker has to be “Pulse Coherent”. All drive units have to act and react in the same direction instantly. Only a sealed box design can do that. A pulse coherent speaker is extremely important for an accurate sound reproduction. If the sound signals are coherent, then it leaves speaker and arrives to listener at the same time. Besides “Coherency” the speaker also has to be “Time Aligned”. In other words, the acoustic centres of all drive units have to be on aligned on one plane. The issues caused by mechanical time alignment are addressed by the usage of felt, a patent owned by Duntech for many years.
All these attributes put together, gave us a design that is extremely neutral, pure in sound and emotional in content. To minimise microphonics and achieve the maximum sound performance we have decided to locate the crossover unit outside the loudspeaker cabinet.
The entire crossover of the Signature version feature CFM internal wiring and are “Hardwired” with consideration to direction of signal flow. Silver solder is used exclusively from the crossover to the drive units.
With such demanding commitment, it is not surprising that every Duntech product is treated as a member of their family by many Duntech owners.
Duntech are confident that the Senator Signature will serve you faithfully for many years and hopefully your only reason for change would be to welcome another member of the Duntech family.
