The OPTICON MK2 speaker range majors on clear, undistorted, enjoyable and coherent audio - perfectly complementing music, radio, streaming, TV or movie sources. The speaker series caters to every requirement - offering a speaker for every room and every occasion.
The large-scale, floor-standing OPTICON 8 MK2 is the powerhouse of the new OPTICON MK2 series. It is the sole threeway system in the series. It combines two 8” Wood Fibre diaphragm, SMC magnet bass drivers with a 6½” Wood Fibre diaphragm, SMC magnet system midrange driver.
The OPTICON 8 MK2 offers optional bi-wiring to enable its bass and midrange/high frequency sections to be connected independently. The driver array of the OPTICON 8 MK2 locates the midrange and hybrid tweeter drivers between the two widely spaced bass drivers. This is done firstly in order to position the mid and high frequency drivers near typical seated ear height, and secondly to take advantage of the smoother low frequency room response that results from spaced bass drivers. The OPTICON 8 MK2 driver array helps make room positioning easier. Above the midrange driver, the OPTICON 8 MK2 incorporates a DALI hybrid tweeter that combines the new, CALLISTO derived 29mm soft dome driver alongside a 17mm x 45mm ribbon element.
The OPTICON 8 MK2 enclosure incorporates separate internal sections for each driver with non-parallel dividing panels suppressing internal resonance and also significantly aiding enclosure rigidity. Each low frequency section is fitted with its own Dual Flare reflex port. Thanks to its size and true three-way format, the OPTICON 8 MK2 offers a level of performance unavailable from any other OPTICON model. It combines immense low frequency bandwidth, volume potential and dynamic accuracy with the extraordinary detail and clarity that arises from the use of a dedicated midrange driver. High frequencies from the hybrid tweeter are explicitly detailed and informative yet simultaneously smooth and endlessly listenable.
The OPTICON 1 MK2 is a compact stand mount speaker designed to be installed close to room boundaries or wall mounted in modest listening spaces. Its drivers comprise a 4¾” Wood Fibre diaphragm, SMC magnet bass/midrange unit and a newly designed 29mm soft dome tweeter derived from that employed in the CALLISTO series.
The Dual Flare reflex loaded 5 Litre enclosure enables the OPTICON 1 MK2 to deliver remarkable bass performance for its size that integrates perfectly with the inherent midrange and high frequency quality of its drivers. The OPTICON 1 MK2 is supplied with a simple keyhole slot wall mounting bracket.
The OPTICON VOKAL MK2 brings a 6½” Wood Fibre diaphragm, SMC magnet bass/midrange driver and the DALI hybrid tweeter together in an enclosure format designed specifically for centre channel applications in multi-channel audio-visual systems. The OPTICON VOKAL MK2 enclosure dimensions and proportions are specifically configured to enable its installation in audio-visual furniture units, and its front facing reflex ports mean that even fully enclosed mounting is feasible. The OPTICON VOKAL MK2 is specifically voiced to play the centre channel role, but at the same time it displays all the characteristic qualities that enable it to dovetail perfectly in a full OPTICON MK2 audio visual system.
