The elegant massive cabinet is made of high pressure laminate (HPL) in a multi-layer construction. The cabinet is a piece of art in every way, from the use of perfect materials to construction and finish, all are exceptional. The use of HPL plates causes the mechanical vibrations of the cabinet to damp to almost zero.
This damping of the mechanical vibrations of the cabinet is important, because the cabinet should absolutely have no contribution to the sound field itself. Therefore the cabinet should not emanate vibrations, which is realised by the material of the cabinet. Besides all energy from the drivers should be absorbed by the cabinet, which is partly realised by using acoustical damping that is capable to absorb the energy in a wide frequency spectrum.
Moreover the mechanical residual vibrations of the cabinet are terminated by the Spike Disk Suspension System (SDSS). This SDSS stand also provides a fixed and levelled orientation for the cabinet drivers. All this shows that there is an incredible attention to detail, which has resulted in only reality as true competitor for the Exquisite Galileo.
The musicality you may expect from the Exquisite Galileo is for an important part created by the drivers, which can be seen as the engine of the loudspeaker. The quality of the driver is therefore crucial to compete with reality.
Without a doubt the quality of the driver is guaranteed by using a Diamond tweeter as a standard in the Exquisite Collection. This high-frequency driver is a true technological wonder. The tweeter has a diamond cone which have been realised by the so called CVD process. With this process incredible stiffness is reached with a minimum of thickness of only 50 µm. Notice a human hair is in the range of 17 to 180 µm. The cone is the most essential part of the tweeter and because this cone is made of Diamond the tweeter is capable to create impressively pure high frequencies.
|High frequencies:||1 x 1-inch Diamond concave tweeter|
|Mid / Low frequencies:||2 x 7-inch Omega 7 driver|
The uncompromised design of the Exquisite Galileo has as result the impressive technical specifications as they are. These specifications show that the Galileo clearly fills the gab between the Exquisite Mini and Midi.
|RMS Power:||150 Watt|
|Program power:||300 Watt|
|Frequency range:||29 Hz – 90 kHz|
|Nominal Impedence:||4 Ohm|
|Efficience 2,83V / 1m:||89 dB|
|Maximum SPL:||112 dB|
The Exquisite Galileo produces the same sound quality as for example an Exquisite Midi, but is just designed for a smaller space. Therefore also the physical dimensions of the Exquisite Galileo are adjusted to its purpose.
