The history of the Solitaire name can be traced back over 35 years: since the 1980’s this term has been a byword for our accumulated competence in the field of transducers. The Solitaire S speakers continue this heritage, and link our loudspeakers even more closely to a particular independent bearer of the Solitaire name: our range of headphones. In terms of technology as well as nomenclature the two series of equipment are very closely related: as with all Solitaire P headphone models, the Solitaire S floor-standing loudspeakers exploit the magnetostatic principle.
In the Solitaire P headphones the entire sound transducer is magnetostatic, whereas the Solitaire speakers utilise this principle only in the treble range: they use two special drivers which are a completely new development, replacing the electrostatic treble units of the preceding series. The models of the S 530 and S 540 are based on the cylinder wave principle, whereas the S 430 make use of our Symmetric Directivity System. Shared by all Solitaire speakers is their amazing combination of musical enthusiasm and audiophile resolution, analytical ability and fine dynamics.
