NUX the first floorstanding loudspeaker from Diapason, is designed with the same technology and criteria as the Adamantes III and Adamantes Limited Edition. In its quality of materials, simplicity of design, and advanced technology, NUX perfectly encapsulates the minimalist philosophy of the entire Diapason range. It also shares that visual appearance, which is not only pleasing to the eye but functional. The multifaceted front baffle, reminiscent of the diamond form used in the other top models of the Diapason range, provides a circular emission of sound waves around the loudspeaker, and gives a close approximation of the theoretical ideal of point source radiation. The loudspeaker quite simply “disappears” from the scene, giving the listener the sensation of a highly realistic, “virtual” soundstage. This effect is also made possible by the ellipsoidal form of the main body of the loudspeaker, which is produced from a curved piece of wood. As a bonus, this form of construction is also highly effective in damping internal standing wave resonance.
Equally ideal for use in high quality domestic audio reproduction and home theater 5.1 systems, NUX provides a perfectly detailed image of the soundstage, and amazing speed in the bass register. The Diapason Direct Drive system, developed over several years of research and made exclusively for Diapason, enables the bass unit to be directly connected to the amplifier. This has obvious advantages, both sonically and for interfacing, as it makes the loudspeaker easier to drive, even when using low-powered amplifiers. The isodynamic treble unit is a perfect match for the Direct Drive bass unit, and together they provide a three-dimensional sound image of absolute realism.
