Anniversary edition of the reference loudspeaker series from T +A

Herford, April 2019: The SOLITAIRE® series has always stood for the ultimate in T+A’s technological philosophy and sound quality, by providing impressive proof of the potential performance of its loudspeaker systems. To mark its fortieth anniversary, the German Hi-Fi specialist carried out additional intensive development work to produce the Solitaire CWT 1000-40 as a symbol of its innovation. More than three years of exhaustive research lies behind the development of a unique technology, which raised the spatial and imaging characteristics of floor-standing speakers to a new and unprecedented level.

The organic baffle of the CWT 1000-40 Anniversary Edition is machined from solid aluminium and provides accurate dispersion and imaging characteristics combined with astonishing spaciousness. The sound frees itself completely from the cabinet and it becomes impossible to locate the speakers. The electrostatic treble unit, the mid-range drivers and the bass units have been further improved and now have lower resonant frequencies, enabling the speaker to generate sound at even higher pressures. T+A’s 40 years of experience in loudspeaker development is also reflected in the cabinet construction, which is designed to eliminate structural sound and resonances. The cabinet walls and internal cavities are created from multi-layer laminated wood panels, employing materials of differing density to significantly increase the rigidity of the cabinet. Multiple applications of priming lacquer are sanded between coats before the final lacquer is applied and meticulously hand-polished. The carbon finish not only looks great, but also achieves enormous rigidity and freedom from resonance. In this process, carbon fabric is laminated to the surfaces under high pressure and sealed several times in layers with PU special lacquer before the final lacquer is applied. The substantial, solid aluminium baseplates are fitted with heavy-duty spikes, which isolate the heavy cabinets completely from the sub-surface and give them an elegant appearance in spite of their considerable size. The top cover and the lateral bass driver covers are also produced from solid aluminium.

The final result is that the Solitaire CWT 1000-40 Anniversary Edition represents a loudspeaker of extraordinarily high performance, capable of reproducing the entire acoustic spectrum. The speaker teases out the finest nuances as effortlessly as it reproduces music at extremely high levels.

The SOLITAIRE CWT 1000-40 Anniversary Edition is available now at selected T+A retailers specialising in the SOLITAIRE® series, with an SRP of £46,000 / €49,000.
