The Ceramic Speakers are made from materials more associated with sculpture than electronics, and offer a remarkably simple path from source to ear. Their 4" full-range drivers and Tripath amplifier create a sound that's warm, dry, and detailed. The Ceramic Speakers will show the difference between lossless and mp3 files, and will unlock vinyl's richness. _“Joey Roth’s Ceramic Speakers are just about the most gorgeous I’ve ever seen, and they sound amazing.” -Gizmodo__“A seamless marriage of drool-worthy design and audiophile-worthy sound.”-Wired_*Simple materials*The Ceramic Speakers are made from porcelain, cork, and Baltic birch. Each material is minimally finished, left to add its natural beauty to the design. The included amplifier is made from stainless steel sheet metal, with a cast iron base and paulownia volume slider. Aside from the electronic components, plastic is completely avoided in the system’s construction.*Intense detail*Typical speakers are designed to play even the most compressed or poorly recorded track. They gloss over the details that give high-resolution music its depth. The Ceramic Speakers’ custom-made drivers, porcelain and cork enclosures, and Tripath amplifier reveal every nuance. They will show the difference between lossless and mp3 files, and will unlock vinyl’s richness.*Never proprietary*Binding posts, 1/8? jacks, and banana plugs have been perfected through years of electronic design. It would be arrogant to replace these simple, effective standards with proprietary connectors. Due to their open design, the Ceramic Speakers work with nearly all high-quality components. The terminals also have a utilitarian beauty that the design emphasizes rather than hides.*System includes:*# One year warranty on all electronics and enclosures# Two ceramic speakers# Amplifier based on the Tripath 2024 T-Amp with gold-plated binding posts, 1/8? input, cast iron base# 16-gauge oxygen-free copper speaker cables with banana plug termination# Interconnects for RCA and 1/8? sources# 120V-240V power supply and adapter (works with US, EU, and Australia/ Asia power mains)*Specifications:**Output:* 15 W/ channel *Sensitivity:* 89 dB*Frequency Range:* 70 Hz – 20 kHz*Impedance:* 4 Ohm*Driver Materials:* Paper diaphragm, aluminum phase plug, neodymium magnet, die-cast basket
