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.

Thanks to Diapason`s Direct Drive technology - which enables the bass/mid driver to be connected directly to the amplifier without the usual low-pass filter - there is real clarity, immediacy, a natural rightness and pleasing balance to the musical presentation. The high-pass crossover circuit is fully hard-wired with Van den Hul CS cable in oxygen-free silver coated copper. And the cabinet, made of solid Italian Canaletto walnut is a little work of art in its own right, but its shape and wood thickness are the end-result of the designer`s quest for resonance-damping.

Karis may be mounted in a bookshelf or on stands, in which case the original Diapason 1/M stands are recommended as they are of reasonable height for most listening rooms, and they also contribute to the sound quality.
