T+A Solitaire CWT 1000-40 Anniversary Loudspeakers

T+A Solitaire CWT 1000-40 anniversary edition speaker marks the company's 40th birthday.

T+A's Solitaire represents the pinnacle of the brand's technological philosophy and sound quality. So, to mark its fortieth anniversary, the German Hi-Fi specialist has further developed the speakers to produce the Solitaire CWT 1000-40 to stand as a symbol innovation.

More than three years of exhaustive research lies behind the development of a unique technology, which raised the spatial and imaging characteristics of floor-standing speakers to a new and unprecedented level.

The baffle of the CWT 1000-40 Anniversary Edition is machined from solid aluminium and provides accurate dispersion and imaging characteristics combined with astonishing spaciousness.

The electrostatic treble unit, the mid-range drivers and the bass units have been further improved and now have lower resonant frequencies, enabling the speaker to generate sound at even higher pressures.

T+A's 40 years of experience in loudspeaker development is also reflected in the cabinet construction, which is designed to eliminate structural sound and resonances.

The cabinet walls and internal cavities are created from multi-layer laminated wood panels of differing density to increase the rigidity of the cabinet. Then, multiple applications of priming lacquer are sanded between coats before the final lacquer is applied and hand-polished.

The carbon finish not only looks great but also adds enormous rigidity and freedom from resonance. The carbon fabric is laminated to the surfaces under high pressure and sealed several times in layers with a special PU lacquer before the final coat is applied.

Finally, the solid aluminium baseplates are fitted with heavy-duty spikes, isolating the heavy cabinets from the sub-surface. The top cover and the lateral bass driver covers are also produced from solid aluminium.

T+A says the Solitaire CWT 1000-40 Anniversary Edition represents a loudspeaker of extraordinarily high performance, capable of reproducing the entire acoustic spectrum.

The Solitaire CWT 1000-40 Anniversary Edition is available now at selected T+A retailers specialising in the Solitaire series, with an SRP of £46,000 / €49,000.
