The NOLA Micro Grand Reference Gold
is a stand mounted
loudspeaker that utilizes the same driver and crossover technology as
other Reference Gold models such as the Baby Grand Reference
. Unlike most stand mounted speakers, the Micro Grand
utilizes our 3½ way UnisonTM
crossover, four driver technology --
basically a reduced size version of our statement floor standers. The
driver array utilizes our 45 degree, mirror-imaged concept for
midrange and tweeter. The twin 120mm gold magnesium cone woofers are
now driven by massive Alnico ring magnets for increased definition,
clarity and even lower distortion. The solid copper phase plugs are
gold plated to provide damping by the soft gold layer over the solid
copper. This concept eliminates any last vestige of coloration from
these drivers. Bass is tighter with more impact. The 110 mm
tri-laminate dipole midrange also uses an Alnico magnet for the lowest
The new true ribbon tweeter is also incorporated which extends
response to 100 kHz. This extended bandwidth provides an
increased sense of "reality" over the whole range including the bass.
The lack of any enclosure in the midrange or high frequency range
eliminates any possible enclosure coloration in this critical region
-- something that cannot be achieved with any kind of box speaker.
Latest developments in passive components allow the incorporation of
silver / gold / oil polypropylene capacitors to complement the pure
copper flat ribbon air core inductors in the crossover. Nordost silver
mono-filament wire is used throughout.
The Micro Grand Reference Gold utilizes a built-in double
platform base with custom ball bearing isolators to further reduce
coloration due to floor borne vibration. The bases are finished in
true piano black.
