Project Description

TIDAL LA ASSOLUTA

If we believed in the fairytale of “the perfect speaker” then we would have stopped our work already right in 2003 with the TIDAL Sunray, a ground breaking construction. It was the first speaker on earth with a 30mm diamond tweeter, 4 symmetrical bass drivers in push-push configuration perfectly phase aligned around the high-midrange heart, pure silver capacitors and an almost endless list of other details.

Overwhelming success in countless shows, awards and in the end of the day success in real world sales proved the TIDAL Sunray as an iconic product for connoisseurs worldwide. Properly driven until today a breathtaking music machine. Then ten years later we introduced the TIDAL Sunray G2 as its successor with an all new developed cabinet material, new drivers, crossover and so on. But long story short: as good as these speaker are, we wanted to go further. Way further….

The La Assoluta. Tidal Audio’s flagship Loudspeaker with pure diamond diaphragm midrange woofer. Available with optional bass towers. Limited to 5 pairs per year worldwide.
