Not many modern speakers sound like this!

Very well balanced and super clean.

The arrangement of drivers and crossover decisions make the Calinda simply magical.

The mid bass and highs are nothing short of exceptional.

The bass goes deep, and stays clean.

The esthetics of the Calinda are beautiful.

The form factor is perfect...
Making the Calinda virtually a perfect loudspeaker.

The Calinda was an 8 inch two-way system with an auxiliary (passive) radiator augmenting the low frequency response. This format was also used previously in the Cadenza and Reference 104.
The low frequency is very well defined while the tweeter provide a well defined high without being shrill. Where this speaker excel the most, is in the mid-range. The rendition of voices is superb.
