Bassheads, things are looking up in 2022. For those who require no politely thin mids and frown upon splashy bass, the HS1750Cu sounds as solid as it looks. Stocks arrive in mid-July.The machining marks inspired by 枯山水/Karesansui* is home to a sound that allows the fullness of saxophones, brass instruments, and vocals that sing openly without restraint. Bass drops are fully gratifying while giving full attention while transitioning to the highs. Chassis is reduced in size but continues the design DNA used in the HS1300SS and modular-chamber flagship, HS2000MX SHO - 笙 -.The HS1750 Copper/Brass is launched together with the HS1790 Titanium to complete the binary spectrum so you can decide which chamber resonates with you. "The unique Myrinx driver technology enables high resolution and a rich soundstage thatsurpasses that of the HS1600 series. The HS1750CU is equipped with a 5th generation Myrinx driver, which is a refined version of the 4th generation Myrinx driver used in the HS1600 series, utilising technology and knowledge gained from the development of the HS1300SS and flagship HS2000MX "Sho"-笙- . In addition, the modular metal body structure completely separates the acoustic chamber (housing the driver) from the mechanical housing (housing the connectors), reducing mutual interference between the acoustic and mechanical parts and thereby suppressing sound quality degradation, a feature that has been retained in the SHO. The next-generation design identity from HS1300SS onwards has also been adopted, resulting in a product that has evolved in every aspect, including acoustic characteristics, appearance and fit." — Acoustune*The karesansui style of Japanese gardening is founded on Zen ideology, and uses rocks and sand to express nature and the universe. --- matcha-jp.com
2022 brightened up with the announcement of this HS1790Ti, bearing the machining marks inspired by 枯山水/Karesansui*. Stocks arrive in mid-July
Contemplative silence in the background with crystal clear notes in full expressivity of dynamics sets this Master series apart from the previous launches. Chassis is reduced in size but continues the design DNA used in the HS1300SS and modular-chamber flagship, HS2000MX SHO - 笙 -.The HS1790 Titanium is launched together with the HS1750 Copper in complete binary distinction so you can decide which chamber resonates with you. "The second generation Myrinx Composite driver is a dynamic driver with a composite membrane structure that combines a diaphragm made of thin-film moulded Myrinx, a synthetic base material for medical use, and an ultra-thin-film processed metal dome. The design concept is to utilise the flexibility of the Myrinx diaphragm and prevent resonance by using a highly rigid material for the dome, which is the key component." — Acoustune*The karesansui style of Japanese gardening is founded on Zen ideology, and uses rocks and sand to express nature and the universe. --- matcha-jp.com
