The TIDAL Akira. The unsurpassed game changer and the world's most praised smaller sister of the mighty TIDAL La Assoluta. Built for the absolute demand in a much more discreet size.
"...Step after step, the Akiras elicited that elusive "aha" moment of clarity, that point in the performance when I felt I could truly sense the deeper intent of the musicians, the engineer and the composer. Think of the Akiras as a time machine, defying the laws of physics by taking you back to the recorded event via multiple intersecting vectors."
"...Completely seamless, fluid, unforced, expressive and finely nuanced. Intricate and delicate when needed, it was also capable of remarkable power and sudden dynamic changes when needed."
"As for the sound - it was simply magical with a transparency to die for. This speaker reproduces sound so effortlessly yet with solid punch and great dynamics, superb subtlety and closed sound from the lowest lows to the highest highs. What I heard was perhaps the least discoloured sound and the most breathtakingly beautiful, pure sound of any speaker (and associated system) I can remember ever hearing....
Moreover, the sound was relaxed, silky smooth, full of intimate detail, with every little musical nuance revealed. There was simply no tension in listening to recorded music - just like listening to it live. When it mattered, the music came through the system with just as much verve, punch and drive, giving the impression of the real thing."
