Karis III

A cabinet made of expertly finished solid Canaletto walnut staves makes the speaker an attractive piece that is wonderful to look at and touch, as well as being crucial for quality sound reproduction. As with an actual musical instrument, Karis III is tuned to reproduce the thrill of live music realistically and naturally.

Continuous Evolution

Innovative technological solutions improve on the performance levels of previous models. The 11-cm Diapason Direct Drive woofer is capable of excellent performance levels at low frequencies, along with a 19-mm tweeter with ample surround capability to reproduce harmonics perfectly. The crossover circuit with thick PCB is fitted to the rear connectors directly, to make signal transmission from the amplifier to the speaker even faster and more efficient, creating a vivid, three-dimensional and thrilling listening experience.

Dedicated Technology

Diapason Direct Drive technology applied to the woofer, developed in conjunction with the Norwegian company SEAS according to Diapason specifications, enables direct connection of the rear connectors to the woofer, without using a low-pass circuit. The result is a listening experience that perceives low frequencies reproduced quickly and realistically.

Karis III are not studio monitors, in the true sense of the term, and that’s a big plus because Karis III does not dissect music for critical analysis; rather it lets the sound flow cohesively into an enjoyable and highly believable presentation.
