TIDAL High-End Audio @ HIGH END 2015 


TIDAL High-End Audio @ HIGH END 2015 

  Making its world premiere at HIGH END 2015 in Munich is TIDAL's reference extremely large floorstander called La Assoluta. TIDAL, not the streaming audio guys, as they are a high-end audio design, engineering and manufacturing company. Showcasing their new La Assoluta, these are very large 7.6-foot high speakers (~€500,000 per pair) and they said are actually more of a side project. This project is a statement of TIDAL's ultimate technology implementation.

An exclusive project with driver specialist Accuton, a partnership which is existing over 11 years now, brings about this pure diamond cone. TIDAL has its 15th year anniversary this year, too, and so they wanted to create something 'ultimate' to find out where the limits are. Just one of TIDAL's La Assoluta has a cone area of 136 cm² out of pure diamond! Their midrange woofer is said to be able to make a six times longer excursion than the biggest driver they have found elsewhere. TIDAL also claims that these drivers have no resonances and moves like the perfect piston due to employing one of the hardest materials known to mankind (pure diamond).

Their smaller, production model Akira floorstander (€165,000 per pair) are a smaller production model. These stand 4.6-feet high and use pure diamond tweeter, midrange and woofer drivers. Seen here is Jorn Janczak of TIDAL with their new Akira speaker.

TIDAL also had their Assoluta monoblock amplifier that uses a proprietary linear power supply to accurately regulate the voltage and current. There is a powerful 330,000uF of power capacity per channel, whilst three proprietary transformers have pure silver wiring with surface polished hollow conductor windings. Paying careful attention to detrimental EMI/RFI interference, each transformer is magnetically shielded and temperature controlled in a resonance damped cabinet. Avoiding simply screw downs or solder, TIDAL instead chooses to cold weld all termination for lowest resistance and create a very stable contact area. Each monoblock amplifier weighs 187 lbs, measures 60 x 44 x 32.5 cm (LxWxH) and produce 360 Watt @ 8 Ohm (700 @ 4 Ohm, and 1200 @ 2 Ohm). Frequency response is up to a stratospheric 500 kHz.
