Exquisite Surround

New materials and new techniques gave us the wings to further approach reality as the absolute reference in the Kharma Exquisite Collection. The far-reaching attention to detail makes this speaker range a class of its own. This is especially stressed by the Diamond cone of the tweeter, which is one of so many high-lights that are standard in the Kharma Exquisite Collection. The systems are developed, assembled and tested in the Netherlands, with the utmost care, by a team of highly dedicated, committed specialists.

This beautiful new Exquisite Surround speaker has been developed for home cinema use and can be placed on-wall or partly in-wall or even on a beautiful stand. When using the in-wall option, the back-part of the speaker disappears in your wall. The cabinet is finished with Side gloss American Walnut panels.

Exquisite Surround: Specifications

System features

The inside of the Exquisite Surround cabinet uses patented Exquisite technology minimizing air born resonance. However, the outside of the cabinet looks still astonishing, without compromising the functional design of the speaker.

The Surround speaker is also available as active version with an integrated Kharma amplifier ensuring Exquisite quality throughout the whole Theatre system.


The musicality you may expect from the Exquisite Surround in a home theatre setting 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 / Low frequencies: 2 x 7-inch Omega 7 driver

Technical specs

Advised amplifier
The Exquisite Surround can be delivered in both a passive version as an active version. The active version has an integrated amplifier, which in a surround setting can reduce the amount of cabling needed.

Advised external cable
The Exquisite Surround has an uncompromised design to the finest detail. For this reason justice can only be put to the quality of the Surround, 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 Surround. For the true connoisseurs of musical art, Kharma offers the possibility to even go one step further by complementing their Exquisite Surround with the Enigma Signature cable series.

Exquisite Surround: 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
  • Signature treatment
  • Diamond Stand

Feel free to contact your dealer for more details

Privileges Program

The Privileges program gives access to the most exclusive treatment Kharma has to offer, which only can be accessed by the happy few who purchase a loudspeaker from the Exquisite Collection.
