Diapason Karis NW Speakers (Walnut)

List Price £1995 - SAVE £600

Ex-demonstration - boxed like new - full warranty

**FREE shipping mainland UK** ...

The Karis NW is the `baby` of Diapason`s Reference series - but what an amazing baby !!

Diminutive in size it may be, but in terms of sound it has a big, generous heart. Thanks to Diapason`s Direct Drive technology - which enables the bass/mid driver to be connected directly to the amplifier without the usual low-pass filter - there is real clarity, immediacy, a natural rightness and pleasing balance to the musical presentation.

The high-pass crossover circuit is fully hard-wired with Van den Hul CS cable in oxygen-free silver coated copper. And the cabinet, made of solid Italian Canaletto walnut is a little work of art in its own right, but its shape and wood thickness are the end-result of the designer`s quest for resonance-damping.

The Karis NW may be mounted in a bookshelf or on stands, in which case the original Diapason 1/M stands are recommended as they are of reasonable height for most listening rooms, and they also contribute to the sound quality.

What Hi-Fi 5* Award Winner

Unison Research, arguably Italy's best-known valve amp specialist, has launched its latest masterpiece - Simply Italy.

This beautifully compact new integrated has a rich heritage, drawing inspiration from the hugely successful Simply Two amplifier - one of the worl's most successful valve amps.

With the 10,000-selling Simply Two firmly in mind, Unison's crafts people set about creating a newly redesigned version that shares many of the characteristics and celebrated sonic attributes of the famous original, but with a more modern appearance. 

Simply Italy offers the same 12 watts of assured, high-quality power per channel, but now features a 6-Ohm output impedance, increasing the amp's flexibility for use with 4- and 8-Ohm loudspeakers.

Unison Research's Professor Gianni Sacchetti, designer of the Simply Italy said: "Simply Italy was d to provide serious audiophiles with a small, inexpensive, high-quality amplifier. Every technological solution was employed and our use of high-quality components contributes to an exceptional level of sound quality."

Hand-built in Unison Research's facility just north of Venice, Simply Italy's amplifying stages are all strictly valve-based and the circuit design ensures that all the valves operate in pure Class-A mode. 

Thanks to Unison Research's long-term dedication to the design, development and manufacture of output transformers, it has been possible to  an output stage for Simply Italy consisting of one EL34 in singleended ultra-linear configuration. Indeed, this mode of operation is made possible by a particular development of the output transformers, which in practice, allow the pentode EL34s to operate almost as if they were triodes. 

The preamp and driver stage of the power output is entrusted to ECC82 twin triodes. These valves provide excellent linearity and an almost complete absence of uneven order harmonic distortion.

The same care and attention reserved for the amplifying stage design was also given to the power supply. The Simply Italy power-supply transformer is not a normal
torroidal transformer, but the result of a project aimed at reducing electrical loss and containing dispersed magnetic flux, a type of power supply which might be called "Quaso-Dual-Mono" has been adopted. In fact, apart from the power transformer and first filter stage, the power supply is doubled, separating all preamp stages to the benefit of low crosstalk and low distortion.

Unison Research's design department has worked painstakingly to  a beautifully designed amplifier that harks back to the original Simply Two, yet incorporates significant aesthetic improvements. Luxurious wood detailing is now confined to the front panel, but embellished by the addition of contrasting circular inserts, also made from wood, which give a more striking appearance to the controls. 

Two satin stainless-steel bands beneath the valves add a touch of refinement, and also assist the thermic isolation of the electronic circuit and output transformers which gives a clear benefit to sound quality and overall reliability.

In the Simply Italy nothing has been left to chance: the control knobs, for example, turned from non-magnetic stainless steel of large diameter and weight, give a smooth flywheel effect with excellent feel and rotational precision. The wood parts, important for the aesthetic design, also play an important role in damping chassis resonance and, thus, assist the delicate electronic parts, valves etc, to perform at their best.

As in all Unison Research projects, great care has been taken with the fundamentals such as power-supply track sizing, careful routing of both earthing and signal runs, the overall robustness, the ease of build and servicing, and the provision of adequate ventilation for the internal circuit. 

To ensure the best performance and best reliability over time of all the components used in Simply Italy, everything has been carefully chosen and selected, from resistors, many of which are anti-inductive, to
electrolytic capacitors, valve sockets in pure ceramic, to the printed circuit boards in vetronite. 

The Simply Italy also boasts an ALPS motorized pot, infra-red remote handset and gold-plated speaker terminals. The sound, of course, is pure Unison Research: refined, generous, natural and musically enjoyable. 

Despite a modest output power rating of 12 watts, this purist design has exceptional sound quality and a driving ability that belies its rated output.

What Hi-Fi 5* Award Winner

After many years of great success Unison Research decided on a new updated and improved version of this classic award winning amplifier.

In this new model, the configuration of the final stage was maintained with a Parallel Single Ended Ultra-Pure Class A. The polarization of individual tubes has been changed and transformed from fully automatic to mixed. About 2 / 3 Bias is obtained with a cathode- type auto polarization and a third from the fixed polarization.

The fixed polarization of each valve is adjustable through a potentiometer and an illuminated analog instrument (for each channel). The choice of the mixed polarization increases the efficiency of the final stage and reduces the factor of  feedback with an appreciable improvement in sound. The output transformer is a new design and has a fixed output impedance of 6 ohms.

As is known the nominal impedance declared for an acoustic diffuser is not very significant: the real impedance undergoes significant changes with frequency, and its value may even  below the nominal value stated. In this regard it should be noted that all the speakers produced by Unison an Opera are in accordance with DIN specifications and never s below the minimum values indicated by that rules (20% of the nominal value). The decision to standardize the output impedance to 6 ohms is aimed at optimally interface all speaker with nominal impedance of 4 or 8 ohms.

Particular attention was paid to the power stage: each preamp stage is decoupled and filtered separately.

The new S6 has also been redesigned from the mechanical point of view: the two channels of the amplifier no longer share a single printed circuit but are now separated in two circuits located on the right and left of the chassis. This solution has greatly improved both the crosstalk and the heat dissipation. In this way the temperature in the various circuits is more controlled in the interest of sound quality, stability, reliability and the very life of electronic components.

The S6 aesthetic has been totally renovated giving to the amplifier greater personality and refinement. In particular, the new front panel, with inlaid wood in contrast, shows the amplifier technology and highlights the unique �Made In Italy� taste.
