The German company Camerton Audio has improved the speaker of its Binom-1 acoustics. We have already talked about these speakers, created on the basis of a unique broadband speaker – now they received an upgraded driver labeled Binom-A1 Rev. 2.
First of all, the new product has changed the design of the diffuser. The flat disc made of ultra-light balsa wood is complemented by isotropic carbon fiber rather than aluminum bracing. This material is said to have a significantly higher strength-to-weight ratio.
The positive effect is also that the structure has become completely dielectric – that is, parasitic electric currents will not arise in it. The modified magnetic system forms the field of a more precise configuration. For greater stability, the magnets are fixed not only with glue, but also with bolts.
In the classical audible frequency range of 20 Hz – 20 kHz, the nonlinear distortion coefficient is declared for the novelty, not exceeding 1%. According to Camerton, the updates have had a positive impact on the sound of treble, vocals, violin and plucked instruments.
Cost of Modified Camerton Audio Binom-A1 Rev. 2 has not yet been announced.
