The palladian features a hand-hammered Timet 1100 Titanium body of unequaled strength and with an unparalleled ability to transfer energy. In the Palladian, we find a strong heart with more energy (coil windings), a body more agile with less inertia (reduced moving mass), featuring further a very special, subtle mix of small measures taken to fine-tune each and every parameter of performance allowing for a sonic explosion beyond our expectations and hopes.


The hand-hammered body, the quick silverish shine like a dragon’s skin – The palladian Timet 1100 body expresses visually its agility, vital dynamic, and live-likeness.


The palladian brings that spark of life back into the sonic presentation of each and every recording. That spark of live – independent whether large or small – that was there when the
the performance was once captured.


The palladian is fast, live-like dynamic, and breathtaking direct in its color, immediateness, and agility. An incredible agile, dynamic dancer – a reminiscent of Misha Baryshnikov in his prime.


It is subtle, tender, and sublime – yet frightening dynamic, with a sonic punch both wall-shaking and stunning physical in its impact.
