NOLA Studio Grand Reference Gold Mk II

The NOLA Studio Grand Reference Gold Mk II is a floor standing loudspeaker of compact proportions that employs the exotic components of our Gold Collection. This includes the same Alnico magnesium woofers, Alnico dipole open baffle mid-range and our new true ribbon tweeter. This three-way, three-driver system provides edge of the art performance in smaller rooms.

Utilizing the same one square foot of floor space as the Metro Grand Reference Gold, its performance is also very user friendly. The system is supplied with a gloss black finished base and four heavy-duty spikes. An optional ball bearing isolation platform is also available.

The advent of cutting-edge components and techniques has allowed for an even greater approach to the sound of “live music.” While many of these techniques remain proprietary, we can share some of the new features that have been incorporated into Series 2.

The 160mm magnesium cone bass driver with massive Alnico magnet system has been further updated. Electrical and magnetic distortion has been further reduced from the already low distortion of the original Gold model.

In addition, electrical “drag” has been greatly reduced, allowing the new woofer to respond to the lowest levels yet. The improvement in bass low-level resolution and dynamics improves “life-like” fidelity over the whole range. Transients literally “explode” from a quiet black background as they do in live music. The true ribbon tweeter has been further upgraded with components built in-house.

The crossovers have been upgraded with new components that were not available for the original version.
