Chario was founded in 1975 and are Italy's most experienced loudspeaker company. Chario hand make their speakers using traditional craftsmanship and modern engineering for cabinets and transducers.
A combination of real wood, and HDF (high density fibreboard) are used throughout their wood collections. HDF (high density fibreboard) is a composite material chosen for it's isotropic behavior (High Friction Losses).This disperses energy in every direction within its fibers. In the Belong range Chario take this a step further with Corian® a man made stone.
Solid walnut, sourced from sustainable walnut forests in north east Italy, are jointed in dovetail slats for structural rigidity. This is chosen for its orthotropic behaviour (lower losses). This disperses energy on orthogonal planes. Both materials combine to create cabinets engineered to damp mechanical vibrations induced by the transducers.
Chario Tweeters (treble)
Neodymium magnets: world's strongest permanent magnet
Soft dome: renders fine detail in a pure luxuriant way
Cross over ≤ 1270HZ (1500hz Constellation): extra wide-frequency improves marriage with bass driver.
No-Ferrofluid: reliable and consistant performace because there is no ferrofluid failure (leaking & congealing)
Chario Woofers (bass)
Rohacell®: super light & strong means it is efficient and does not deform. (Cone deformation is a source of inharmonic-distortion)
PolyRing® magnets: small (neodymium) discs in a daisy formation around the voice-coil increases the air gap which cools the voice coil and prevents compression.
Full Apex® Cones: monocoque cone without an Apex hole and dust cap ensures bass transients are preserved.
Chario loudspeakers are designed to work in all rooms. Transducers are positioned within precisely angled cabinets, including inverting the tweeter with the mid-range and mounting the bass and ports at the bottom of the cabinet. The bass and mid are thus as far apart as possible >1m, so large bass sound waves may propogate without disrupting this rich detail. Furthermore they don't require rear-wall re-inforcement because they use the floor, a more predictable measurement. The distance between the floor and bass are always known regardless of room type. These precisely measured transducer mountings have a unique relationship with your ears because sounds arrive their first (before room reverbaration). You receive the music in tact, a vast tonal colour palette is delivered in a very dynamic 3D soundscape which is a joy to behold!
