The company from Cambridge (UK) Node Audio introduced an updated version of the Hylixa rack-mounted speakers. These compact speakers, equipped with a witty version of the spiral labyrinth acoustic design, appeared three years ago.
The Hylixa Signature seriously differs from its predecessor – first of all, in appearance. The tripod support gave way to a column mounted on a solid, one-piece stainless steel disc.
The support material is also different – instead of aluminum they used glass fiber reinforced nylon. The same material is used for the elements of the bass driver, located inside the enclosure and directed to the back.
The upgraded Hylixa Signature crossover received upgraded Mundorf capacitors with internal Duelund wiring and assembled by laser soldering. The laser was also used in the production of the modified cabinet – advanced 3D laser printing technology was used.
Traditionally for Node, the Hylixa Signature speakers come in a variety of designs to choose from, including precious metal plated surfaces. Not only that, but to get an idea of which option is preferable, Node has offered a free visualization service. All this will be available in September. The novelty is also planned to be shown at the October UK Audio Show in Daventry.
The Node Audio Hylixa Signature speaker will start at around £30,000 in the UK, roughly the same price as the previous model.
