Arya Air Blade Tweeter – Audio Exotics Product of the Year 2020
About Arya Air Blade Tweeter – Audio Exotics Product of the Year 2020
The Air Blade is an engineering tour de force by Arthur Marker of Arya Audio.To date, there is not a single high frequency drive unit that rivals the capability of Air Blade, if for one reason - frequency dispersion. As we know, dispersion narrows as frequency increases. The Air Blade augments any tweeters of any speaker because no tweeters achieve dispersion like it. Real musical instruments radiate 180 degrees. Pavarotti’s highest C note on record is just over 1,000hz. With Air Blade, the user has the choice of a range from 1KHz all the way to 18Khz. This new technology proves the “school of frequency extension” (as evinced by typical super tweeters or diamond tweeters) to be pursuing a somewhat of a futile cause.
Consider that the augmentation of the Air Blade to a pair of Cessaro Wagners delivers the massed strings of the Berlin Philharmonic with a real concert experience, reflecting the energy of sound and its reverberation, also offering understanding width and height of the venue.
Also, once you have a pair of Air Blades, the positioning of your main speakers is much easier. It's really the lack of capabilities of the modern tweeters that complicate the task of speaker siting optimization. Simply connecting the AirBlades in parallel to your speakers, is a brilliant start to literally rediscovering your music collection!
