Voltaire III

Voltaire III

A glimpse pre-view of our latest speaker in the Voltaire range…….

Exceptional in many ways this design has virtually no cross-over and uses drivers specially chosen and adapted to give perfect integration in a 3 way system of incredible dynamics and realism.

Low frequencies are handled by a modified Volt 12” radial bass unit which takes bass control and precision to a new level and which runs completely open with no cross-over components in the signal path or in parallel.

The midrange frequencies are handled by a modified 3” Volt soft dome unit covering the most important mid band frequencies extending up to 4.5kHz crossing over to the legendary Raal ribbon tweeter to give shimmering highs only this tweeter is capable of.

The midrange unit has a single Dueland Coherent Audio cast resistor in series to lower it’s sensitivity and with a single Mundorf parallel capacitor to perfectly integrate with the tweeter.

The Raal tweeter then uses a single series Clarity Cap CMR capacitor which can be upgraded to a Dueland cast silver/oil capacitor on request.

Internal wiring has been specially chosen and using damping control and cryo frozen to give additional purity of signal path combined with WBT pole connectors.

All these components and virtually no cross-over equates to incredible dynamics and the rendition of musical passages only heard of from esoteric and extremely expensive loudspeakers.

Further details to follow.

Voltaire IV Reference

Voltaire IV Reference

The Voltaire range of precision loudspeakers has to have a flagship model which had one objective in mind…..to be one of the best loudspeakers in the world.

We believe we have achieved this with a system that can conjure up a holographic soundstage, imaging to die for, incredible bass precision and dynamics, the purest vocal clarity and huge scale to completely immerse you in the magic of the original recording.

A cabinet of immense structural integrity made from laminated birch ply and mdf with a 50mm thick baffle and internally braced to allow the drive units to act free of cabinet constraints and resonance’s.

Using a pair of critically damped 10” Volt bass/midrange drivers and a precision Ribbon tweeter capable of a very low cross over point and high power handling giving a system of high spl’s and sensitivity to provide an extremely analytical sound across the entire audible frequency spectrum.

WBT signature platinum pole connectors, silver plated UP OCC cable, resonance isolated oak cross over board, MR clarity capacitors and Track Audio Isolation feet seamlessly working to maintain those final nuances of musical textures.

To audition these incredible speakers and to be transported to the live recording venue contact the sales team for a demonstration you will never forget.

Voltaire II

Voltaire II

Following on in the footsteps of Zero, Voltaire II achieves greater bass extension and all the hand crafted refinement of the Robson trademark use of beautiful hardwoods and leathers in a substantially built cabinet using 25mm Scandinavian
birch ply with additional bracing and damping adding to the sonic magic this monitor is capable of.

Coupled to Track Audio’s precision base renowned for adding bass control and giving greater dimension, this loudspeaker performs as a true reference marque.

Using a critically doped 8” bass unit with high linear excursion characteristics and low midrange colouration and able to achieve very good transient stability at high sound levels.

Coupled with a highly specified and large ribbon tweeter able to crossover at lower frequencies gives this loudspeaker much of its incredible vocal clarity and refined sound.

Superb imaging and a fabulously large soundstage are just some of the qualities to expect from these monitors along with bass dynamics only Volt are able to achieve through innovative engineering and state of the art performance and design.

In order to extract every last nuance from a recording dive units of this quality require associated components of equal stature.

WBT connectors, silver plated wiring and Mundorf capacitors are just some of the ingredients that make this loudspeaker bring new meaning to the words “scale” and “impact”.
