    BONUS audiophile products shipped with each pair of speakers:

    AUDIO-CD -- a compact disc for testing of hearing and monitoring of hearing changes (both TTS & PTS). Also very useful in calibration of safe volume levels and testing of the audio system and speaker performance. $39.95 US value
    CD-CHECK -- a compact disc for precise evaluation of tracking and error correction capabilities of CD and DVD players. This is an essential tool in CD player evaluation, testing and maintenance.Use it to ensure 100% of sound reproduction. $39.95 US value
    "Songs for Manhattan" -- audiophile-grade CD recording of jazz piano vituoso from New York, Adam Makowicz (who considers it one of his best recordings). This CD is great for evaluation of the entire sound system and speakers since piano sound is hard to reproduce. $19.95 US value
    Unity 8' long cable set -- to eliminate guesswork when selecting cables for the LaHave Audio speakers, we supply a high-quality set free of charge. Unity, 11-gauge speaker cables are custom-made for us in Canada using oxygen free high conductivity copper with a 99.99997% purity. Cables are insulated with nylon, and then covered with a PVC jacket, topped off with an esthetically pleasing silver and black mesh sleeve that also prevents abrasion. Supplied connectors are gold BFA banana plugs which fit all modern posts, including those from Europe and Japan. $99.95 US value.

    Developers Note
    The Coaxial Ported Wedge (Reference 3) represents the logical evolution for the acoustic suspension version we built in the early 80s. The near optimal pressure load provided by the triangular shaped enclosure and the low mass coaxial driver is an excellent match. The coax was selected for its cast basket, exotic cone, coaxiality, and strong ceramic magnet. Over the last few years the raw loudspeaker has been improved by the w/mid cone mass being lowered 20%, the lead in wires to the voice coils are balanced on both sides of the cone and the tweeters resonance has been lowered. The crossover consists of audiophile grade caps, air core inductors and non-inductive resistors. The speaker has extended low frequency response and the midrange superiority is further enhanced by the coaxial nature of the system. Various design elements allow this system to extend the apparent near field, which delivers a more detailed yet musical experience.

    Speaker Stands
    All our products are available with matching stands. Starting at $500.00, please inquire for your price.
