Melos (dark oak)
25 years of audio engineering experience in a world-class reference center speaker.
A central speaker is literally the center of a multi-channel experience. It is one of the most important and at the same time the most underestimated elements of home theater. We decided to design an uncompromising solution based on the experience and technology gained from the development of the Orfeo model. Melos also has mechanical parts designed by us, carefully selected membranes including their impregnation; we have chosen materials and shapes.
The enclosure of Melos is made of luxurious Italian oak or maple in the case of the “marina” finish. It must be aged for three weeks after sealing so that it can be properly processed and modeled. The frequency crossover is made up of premium components from the world's most prestigious brands. The choice of these components was influenced mainly by the quality of music listening. The crossover also uses our original Fase Zero system to achieve perfect phase response coherence.
The result is a new reference center, which can also be used as an ultimate D´Appolito stereo speaker.
