DELTA BLUES AUDIO
The Corporate Mission of DELTA BLUES AUDIO is to harness the innate material resonance in various materials so as to creat a Natural Sound speaker. The basic design and construction is based on a metallic conical base woofer and a 180 degree flat horn in either aluminum, fiber glass and wood. All parts are hand–welded, polished, anodized and individually tuned. Innovative ideas are used with the combination of traditional metal spinning and wood turning process.
Inspired by the special “metallic and crystal clear sound” coming from a Blues Resonator guitar, this 5 year project finally saw the launch of NX-2 : an unique Stereo Sound System suitable for home, lounge, study room or as studio monitors. The following pictures are chronicled to illustrate the development of this well-acclaimed product.
Special attentions were drawn to make a “Natural Sound” speaker with an all innovative resonance disc. Hi frequencies have never before been more faithfully and accurately reproduced.
