Kronos AV
Diapason was founded in 1987 by Alessandro Schiavi, who previously had extensive experience in recording studios. His skill in capturing live music in three dimensional space and its faithful reproduction, led to the development of the first speaker by Diapason, the Prelude.
The Prelude, and all the speakers manufactured by Diapason, are designed to offer the highest fidelity and transparency to the absolute sound. Furthermore, our speakers convey the emotional involvement of the live performance.
Each Diapason speaker is hand assembled and wired by skilled craftsmen. The beautiful cabinetry is not only an integral part of the design, but the highest example of Italian furniture- making. The cabinets, which are constructed in solid-wood staves and completely handmade by our skilled craftsmen, are assembled in a particular way which makes the whole structure highly rigid and free from resonance.

Our Customer Love Us


This design has been updated since the first model was produced in 1989, to achieve the perfect shape and sound to stir our deepest emotions.

The characteristic multi-faceted shape reminiscent of the diamond that provided the inspiration for the name of this model, Adamantes, is designed for optimal sound dispersion from the drivers into the listening environment, and the recreation of a 3D soundstage. The speaker recedes from the soundstage, making it almost possible to 'touch' instruments and voices, and sense their exact position during the performance.


Dimensions and balance carefully designed and tuned, living wood which is ideal for sound reproduction, such as Canaletto walnut, along with innovative technological solutions and efficient, quality components, make Adamantes V a true sound reproduction instrument.


Unique, handcrafted items that have been professionally cut, sanded and varnished can only transpire from the able hands of woodworking experts, who have drawn their wisdom from Italian cabinetmaking tradition.

Diapason Direct Drive technology applied to a 17-cm woofer developed in conjunction with the Norwegian company SEAS according to strict specifications, enables the direct connection of rear connectors to the driver, without using a low-pass circuit. The result is a listening experience that perceives low frequencies reproduced quickly and realistically.


The 2/A stand in solid Canaletto wood and brushed stainless steel base, measuring 75 cm in height, has been designed for the ideal positioning of Adamantes V.
