These knee high Neat floorstanders amaze with their sweet, detailed, and room filling sound. With bass extension and control that belie their size, the Iota Alpha's make for an engaging and thoroughly entertaining listening experience that will have you tapping your toes, as well as scratching your head in disbelief. Many rave reviews in the Google-verse, including What Hi-Fi's 5 star commentaries linked below.
The crossover is a simple two-and-a-half-way design, employing 1st & 2nd order slopes. The crossover components are all hard-wired, with point-to-point connections in order to maximize integrity. The crossover components are of premium audiophile quality and include polypropylene capacitors and air-core inductors.
At a mere 45cm tall the Iota ALPHA can be placed discreetly in the room, yet it delivers a genuine full-range musical experience on a scale that suggests a far bigger (and more expensive) loudspeaker.
Visually deceptive, the Iota Alpha incorporates some unorthodox imagineering. The basis of Neat's original Iota (the main drive unit and the EMIT type planar magnetic tweeter) is housed in the top section of the cabinet, in a sealed enclosure, angled upwards. This section is configured as a two-way closed box loudspeaker. The whole of the ported lower section is dedicated to augmenting the lower frequencies, via a downward-firing 134mm drive unit mounted on the bottom panel.
