The Peaks series includes five new speaker models plus a powered subwoofer, each performing at a new reference level for their price point. They excel in any size room, across all genres of music, and are offered in high quality finish es to suit every style of home.

Descent is an active, DSP-powered subwoofer providing the very highest musical performance possible. A top tier 1000W amplifier drives an entirely new, 11″ (28 cm) BilletCore driver with 3″ voice coil, titanium former and advanced magnet structure. Effortless dynamics and incredible musicality extend to the very lowest bass frequencies.

The DSP filters are based on advanced computational modeling, state-of-the-art measurements and extensive listening tests, with presets frequency and phase curves to accompany bookshelf, small floor-stander and large floor-stander speakers.

Throughout the development process, quality was never compromised. Descent's custom driver is mounted in a thick aluminum front baffle, precision machined in-house to a profile guided by detailed computational modeling.

Sealed cabinet bodies are made from inch-thick dense resin fiber, curved to exact tolerances in custom presses by experienced European workshops. They include advanced bracing and acoustic absorbers which eliminate cabinet resonances and reflections.

Through its unique combination of cutting-edge science and engineering, Descent represents an approach with no compromises. Everything from the driver, cabinet and amplifier, through to the veneer, lacquer and internal cabling has been carefully selected and modeled to deliver the most accurate, most musical performance possible.
