NOLA Metro Grand Reference Gold Mk II

The Metro Grand Reference Gold has been upgraded to a series 2 version for even greater performance. The current model has been recognized worldwide as a true reference and yet, musical transducer.

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 twin 160mm magnesium cone bass drivers, with massive Alnico magnets, have been further updated. Electrical and magnetic distortion have been further reduced from the already very low distortion of the original Gold model.

In addition, electrical “drag” has been greatly reduced, allowing the new woofers to respond to the lowest levels yet. This improvement in bass lowlevel resolution and dynamics improves “life-like fidelity” over the whole range of the loudspeaker. Transients literally “explode” from a quiet black background, as in “live music.”

The true ribbon tweeter has been further upgraded with components built inhouse. The crossovers have been upgraded with the latest components, not available for the original version. Additional Nordost silver wire is utilized.

The Metro Grand Reference Gold Mk II utilizes a double platform ball bearing isolation base to further reduce the coloration of floor-borne vibrations for a more dynamic sound.
