Luxury Australian audio brand Kyron has unveiled the second iteration of its Gaia home speaker system – a striking boxless design that has won its share of awards in the past. The successor has been aptly dubbed Gaia - Evolution.
The Gaia - Evolution features a pair of special edition Kyron Mercury subwoofers to handle the extreme lows, each with their own Danish amplifier capable of 2,500W of power per amp.
It also, clearly, keeps its boxless design, with its 14 twelve-inch woofers experiencing no unwanted colouration or loss of clarity that is typically inherent in speaker cabinets.
The newly designed preamp is twice as powerful as its predecessor when it comes to digital signal processing, allowing for extra computing power when employing Kyron's algorithms for phase and frequency response correction.
Some other features that are present include a new tweeter waveguide design and primary amplifiers that use technology from Dutch company Hypex.
“We designed Gaia to be the most accurate and musically satisfying system on the planet,” says chief systems architect and co-founder Leon Suter, who started the company with fellow professional musician-turned-designer Lee Gray more than 20 years ago. “Gaia creates a completely new class of sound system, where startling 3D, holographic sound meets luxurious and harmonious style.”
Each Gaia system is made to order and customised to suit the space in which it will be housed. As such, every Gaia also includes installation and tuning from Kyron. With extra-rich touches like Italian leather and real gold highlights, the Gaia is just as much intended to be a showpiece as it is for delivering audio.
Customers can expect all the custom care and attention to detail from the original Gaia, including the customer's choice of finishes such as Nappa leathers, Alcantara, precious metals and custom paints.
The Kyron Gaia - Evolution is priced at AU$289,000 (approx £165,000 / $206,000 + shipping).
