Manufacturer: YAMAHA

This is a unique design high end Yamaha bookshelf speakers. The main driver uses an interesting proprietary material called A-PMD (advanced polymer-injected mica diaphragm), which is claimed to combine very low mass with high stiffness and good self-damping characteristics.

The 25mm aluminium dome tweeter is surrounded by a short horn flare, protected by an open-mesh cover and mounted on a substantial die-cast aluminium plate to provide a measure of isolation from cabinet vibrations. Twin terminal pairs (with wire links) feed a hard-wired crossover with metallised polypropylene capacitors and air-cored inductors

The tonal balance could perhaps be a little more even, but is very well judged overall; imaging is excellent, and dynamics are quite expressive, because the background hash is so well suppressed that instrumental texture and low-level detail come through well.
