KHARMA

Exquisite Midi Grand

Creating a Kharma Exquisite loudspeaker is a very long process. Looking for the perfect shape, materials and sound... that sense of graceful elegance you would expect from a handcrafted loudspeaker. The far-reaching attention to detail makes this speaker range a class of its own. This even more becomes clear by the Diamond tweeter which is standard in the Exquisite Collection. This all is the result of our unique reputation and style, which is realized by a team of highly dedicated, committed specialists.

The Exquisite Midi Grand, part of the Flagship series of the Exquisite Collection, materialises the absolute end of the high-end in audio, with only reality as a real competitor. The Exquisite Midi Grand is the more modest version of its bigger relative, the Exquisite Grand. However, the Exquisite Midi Grand also has still the unique capacity to portray musical recordings in there realistic size. Not everything is made big as so many other big loudspeakers do, but acoustic sizes really match: a small and fragile piano note will sound like the original and will give the same feeling of that special moment, but so will a big orchestra sound as impressive as during the concert performance. All of that with utmost ease at every playing level.

Exquisite Midi Grand: Specifications

System features

The Exquisite Midi Grand is a virtual point-source system, where the double Diamond tweeters project the image very precise with incredible stage depth, height and width. The result is a loudspeaker that is capable to portray musical recordings in their realistic size.

This system can only achieve such astonishing properties by using complex crossover techniques to lead all drivers to the right music composition. Therefore the crossover can be seen as an orchestra conductor, which will have to turn the information received through the loudspeaker cable into a musical spectacle as if it was read from a music sheet. Kharma has mastered the art of retaining musical wholeness with the proprietary crossover technique used in the Exquisite Midi Grand. This technique is seldom used by other manufacturers because of its complexity.

Signature treatment
The Exquisite Midi Grand comes with the Signature treatment of Kharma, which is mainly implemented to improve the structure born vibration properties of the driver chassis and to enhance the magnetical field handling as well as proprietary techniques. This is realised by using the Silver/Gold Signature version of the Kharma Binding Post System, refining the internal cabling by proprietary Kharma processes and modifying the drivers for better performance.

Drivers

The drivers can be seen as the engine of the loudspeaker, which must create the musicality that may be expected from the uncompromised design of the Exquisite Midi Grand. Therefore the quality of the drivers is crucial for creating an ultra high-end sound.

Without a doubt the quality is guaranteed by using two Diamond tweeters as a standard in the Exquisite Midi Grand. These high-frequency drivers are true technological wonders. The tweeters have a diamond cone which have been realised by the so called CVD process. With this process incredible stiffness is reached with a minimum of thickness of only 50 µm. Notice a human hair is in the range of 17 to 180 µm. The cone is the most essential part of the tweeter and because this cone is made of Diamond the tweeter is capable to create impressively pure high frequencies.

High frequencies: 1-inch Diamond concave tweeter
Mid frequencies: 2 x 7-inch Omega 7 drivers
Low frequencies: 2 x 11-inch Nomex-Kevlar drivers

Advice

Advised amplifier
The recommended amplifier for the Exquisite Midi Grand is an amplifier of the Exquisite MP1000 Series. There are several reasons why we recommend an Exquisite MP1000 amplifier for the Exquisite Midi Grand.

  • First of all it has sufficient power to drive the Exquisite Midi Grand to its full capacity, allowing you to drive the system in both small and large spaces.
  • The second reason is that the system has been voiced in with Exquisite MP1000 amplifiers during many listening sections and in this way is optimized to achieve the Kharma sound.

Advised external cable
The Flagship series of the Exquisite Collection, where the Exquisite Midi Grand belongs to, has an uncompromised design to the finest detail. For this reason there can only put justice to the quality of the Midi Grand, when the used external cable is also uncompromised to the highest level. Therefore the Enigma Signature cable series is the advised to complement the ultra high-end sound of the Exquisite Midi Grand. However the true connoisseurs of musical art will go even one step further by complementing their Exquisite Midi Grand with the Enigma Extreme Signature cable series.

Exquisite Midi Grand: Options

Stock Program


A Kharma product must not only have an unbelievable refined sound, which meets the needs of a true music lover, but also must have an astonishing finish to compete with the musicality of the system. As known by Kharma, every customer can have a taste of its own. Therefore Kharma developed three programs to be able to fulfil all levels of customization: the Primary Stock Program, the Kharma Optionary Program and the Kharma Privileges Program.  

Primary Stock Program
This program has been targeted as to create the shortest possible delivery time for the official Kharma products. This program is therefore based on the most popular Kharma finishes, which have proven their looks in the past by many successful sales. In this way we can deliver both the high refined sound as the astonishing finish that can be expected from Kharma.

Optionary Program


The Kharma Optionary Program gives the freedom to tune the system both visual, to personalize the look of your speaker, as well as technical, to further refine the astonishing sound of your speaker.  

The visual tuning in the Optionary Program will give the customer the opportunity to choose between special selected Kharma colours and panel materials. These finishes have a higher level of customization and therefore the delivery time will be slightly longer than in the Stock Program. There is no extra charge for the Optionary paint colours, except for the colour indicated as special. The technical updates and panel finishes in this program will bring extra costs and can vary per option. 

Technical updates:    

  • Extreme Signature treatment
  • Diamond Stand
