The compact OPTICON 1 MK2 speaker is a true 2-way compact performer holding a 4¾" wood fibre woofer matched with a new large 29 mm soft dome tweeter derived from the CALLISTO series.
The OPTICON 1 MK2 offers a level of performance unavailable from any other OPTICON model. The stand mount speaker is a natural distributor of high performance audio in compact to medium sized listening spaces where it has room to breathe and deliver its dynamic and explicitly defined performance.
The manufacturing of the compact speaker remains fully Danish - as with the MK1 series. Fully assembled at our factory in Denmark - from components produced in-house or sourced from the best local specialist manufacturers and further afield.
The OPTICON 1 MK2 is available in Satin Black, Satin White and Tobacco Oak.
The SMC used in OPTICON MK2's magnet motor system has very high magnetic permeability and very low electrical conductivity. It works primarily by minimising eddy currents in the magnet system pole piece. This improves flux linearity, reducing the magnetic hysteresis. Resulting in a significant reduction of electro-acoustic distortion.
The newly introduced OPTICON MK2 Dual Flare technique brings port design into the realm of aerodynamics - with exit and entry flares carefully designed to minimise turbulence. Dual Flare enables OPTICON MK2 reflex ports to remain laminar and work effectively to reinforce low frequency performance to a significantly higher volume level than would otherwise be possible.
ASSEMBLED IN PAIRS
Speakers used and enjoyed in pairs should also be built as pairs! Our manufacturing process is designed to ensure that stereo pairs of speakers are built and tested sequentially by a single manufacturing technician, using components taken in the same order from the same batch. It’s a process that helps ensure ultimate visual and acoustic pair matching.
MADE IN DENMARK
Manufacture of the OPTICON MK2 series has been retained firmly at our Danish factory. Our in-house woodworking facility handles everything from cutting the MDF enclosure panels to applying the surface finishes. Assembly by hand, testing and quality approval on each and every speaker is also handled on our own assembly lines.
The OPTICON 1 MK2 is a compact stand mount speaker designed to be installed close to room boundaries, while the Dual Flare reflex loaded enclosure enables the OPTICON 1 MK2 to deliver remarkable bass performance for its size that integrates perfectly with the inherent midrange and high frequency quality of its drivers.
