Designer Joey Roth came up with these speakers encased in porcelain cones. The idea is that the porcelain is acoustically "acoustical deadness" to the sound, which makes the efforts of the speakers richer.
I have to admit that I have never looked at the acoustic properties of Porcelian, but i don't see any reason why this wouldn't work.
Designed to leave music untouched, these speakers are warm, dry, and detailed. Their 4″ full-range drivers and T-class amplifier, encased in acoustically dead porcelain and cork, create a remarkably simple path from source to ear.
System includes a dedicated amplifier based on the Tripath 2024 T-Amp, oxygen-free copper speaker cables with banana plug termination, and interconnects for RCA and 1/8″ sources.
