KHARMA

Exquisite Midi

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 becomes crystal 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 and committed specialists.

The new Kharma Exquisite Midi is designed and built without compromise. Every part of this speaker, from the extreme dense HPL-plates to the smallest details has a function in the complex process of creating ultra high-end sound. The advanced Diamond dome technology used in the Exquisite Collection emphasizes this incredible attention to detail even more. Furthermore the uncompromised design also resulted in the beauty of the Exquisite Midi, which is for example shown by the gold-plated side-trimming or the new high-gloss Macassar panels.

Exquisite Midi: Specifications

System features

The elegant massive cabinet of the Exquisite Midi is made of high pressure laminate in a multi-layer construction. The cabinet is a piece of art in every way, from the use of perfect materials to construction and finish, all are exceptional.

Inside this cabinet the beating heart of this loudspeaker, the crossover, controls the musicality of the Exquisite Midi. Therefore the crossover can be seen as an orchestra conductor, which will turn the information received through the loudspeaker cable into a musical spectacle as if it was read from a music sheet. Hence both the orchestra conductor and the crossover will have to lead the group of musician or drivers respectively to a musical piece of art.

Kharma has mastered the art of retaining musical wholeness with the proprietary crossover technique used in the Exquisite Midi. This technique is seldom used by other manufacturers because of its complexity. This results in the Kharma crossover where simply is no gap in information.

Drivers

The musicality you may expect from the Exquisite Midi is for an important part created by the drivers, which can be seen as the engine of the loudspeaker. The quality of the driver is therefore crucial to compete with reality.

Without a doubt the quality of the driver is guaranteed by using a Diamond tweeter as a standard in the Exquisite Collection. This high-frequency driver is a true technological wonder. The tweeter has 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 x 1-inch Diamond concave tweeter
Mid frequencies: 1 x 7-inch Omega 7 driver
Low frequencies: 2 x 8-inch Nomex-Kevlar driver

Advice

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

  • First of all it has sufficient power to drive the Exquisite Midi 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 Exquisite Midi has an uncompromised design to the finest detail. For this reason justice can only be put to the quality of the Midi, when the used external cable is also uncompromised to the highest level. Therefore the Enigma Signature cable series is advised to complement the ultra high-end sound of the Exquisite Midi. For the true connoisseurs of musical art, Kharma offers the possibility to even go one step further by complementing their Exquisite Midi with the Enigma Extreme Signature cable series.

Exquisite Midi: 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:    

  • Signature treatment
  • Extreme Signature treatment
  • Diamond Stand
