Our most advanced speaker to date. When the highest fidelity is what matters most. Featuring our proprietary DPC-Array controlling Mid/High frequencies, centered by our finest 28mm Beryllium dome and dual 28mm TPCD ultra-lightweight domes. All transducers are developed ground up by our engineers – bringing decades of research, culminating in this world class design. We teamed up with companies in the USA and Sweden to bring modern material science to hi-fi. Utilizing advanced Comsol acoustical modeling, our DPC-array is the result of 18 months of painstaking simulations and prototyping. The result is one of the most technologically advanced loudspeakers available. This new tweeter/waveguide DPC-Array delivers amazing accuracy, smoothness, and directivity control to handle the critical vocal range and delicate treble. All S-Series speakers share the same DPC-Array and benefit from our unique timbre matching technique across the entire series. Custom bass drivers made from thin-ply carbon diaphragms (TPCD) can be configured as bass reflex or acoustic suspension and adjusted for listener preference. True full range performance with unparalleled dynamic range and musical finesse. The PERLISTEN S-Series speakers also have the distinguished honor to be the world’s first and only loudspeakers to be certified for THX Dominus – their highest rating. A mark of achievement.
Thin Ply Carbon Diaphragm
The same (TPCD) TexTreme carbon fiber that is used in our midrange is also the key to the performance of our woofers resulting in our lighter than air dynamics and the impact you expect in a flagship Speaker that can play to 20Hz in a room. This technology is 30% lighter than standard carbon fiber of the same thickness while increasing the strength using the unique process of stacking multiple layers. The unique weave is unmistakable and distributes break up modes without sharp peaks in the response while extends bandwidth. Simply perfect.
Directivity Pattern Control
Patent Pending DPC- We teamed up with companies in the USA and Sweden to bring modern material science to hi-fi utilizing advanced Comsol acoustic modeling. The DPC-array is the result of 18 months of painstaking simulations. We just love it and think you will too
Beryllium - Covering the widest bandwidth, up to ultrasonics, our finest 28mm Beryllium dome plays center stage. Beryllium is one of the strongest materials known and does not suffer from the typical harsh break up modes of other metals due to it’s outstanding damping characteristics. Accurate, undistorted and revealing.
TPCD Carbon Fiber - The Beryllium tweeter is flanked by our dual 28mm TPCD ultra-lightweight Carbon fiber domes midranges. Allowing the crossover point to extend more than an octave lover than typical domes, fast, lightweight and without beaming caused by larger diaphragms.
Waveguide lens – all of this technology wouldn’t be worth it without the waveguide orchestrating the directional characteristics of the array. Presenting a coherent wave front, while optimizing early reflections and sound power, to bring vocal reproduction to an altogether new level.
It takes more than just world class materials to make world class sound. It takes quality that makes you trust your speaker will never fail you in the middle of a dynamic explosion or hearing the subtlety of a triangle in your favorite orchestra. We demand this in our products so you don’t have to.
It’s in the Details
The details matter. It not just pretty on the outside but the attention to detail on the inside continues with a 50mm front baffle, 7 different braces, strategically placed acoustic fiber to prevent internal resonances, and 1/8” of thermoacoustic damping material on all of the interior walls. It would not be complete without some of the finest crossover components including Mundorf capacitors.
