A third bookshelf speaker?  What?  Why? ......here's why: When we presented our $6K Little Wing and $8K Black Bird to one of our nation's top high end audio retailers he pretty much smiled and pushed them away.  To paraphrase a most astute man who knows what his customers want: "Not good enough. More. Bass like your old Shearwater. Start the line at $10K. Make it count."  Well OK then! So we trebled the driver budget. Some things just don't come until you spend the money.  We went with the hot new Satori 7.5" - the baby brother of the 9.5" that has so impressed us doing upper bass duty in our Bonecrusher.  Add to that the genuine German made Mundorf Air Motion Transformer (No: all AMTs are NOT the same; silly to even think that. Mundorf is far and away the best. Period.).  The kind of resolution these drivers are capable of calls for a very quiet cabinet so we embedded our latest-and- greatest friction based damping technology.  Plus we engineered an extra tricky mini transmission line to absorb the backwave from the tweeter as opposed to the simple little hunk of felt that's behind all of the other AMTs. Slanted internal baffling, elastic panel decoupling, elastic driver decoupling, diffraction free grille and so on. A fully tricked out bookshelf that weighs in like a cement block at 34lbs. Big powerful sound, small box.  Sweet, natural and pure with scary dynamics. This punchy little speaker just keeps on coming. Loves big drums - can you say that about another bookshelf?  Timbre-o-rama of lush detail.  Fun as hell - even for the jaded and easily bored, like me.  Now flies the Kite!  Named for the magnificent raptor, the first Kite's cock-sure attitude cried out for its 'fancy-pants' Zebrano Zoot suit. She wears it well, don't you think?  But you can have any wood that suits you.  It's easy, just ask.
underestimate not
Kite - you look like dinner.....
feeling lucky?
