ABOUT US

Heritage

 

Chario was founded in 1975 and are Italy's most experienced loudspeaker company. Chario use traditional craftsmanship and modern engineering in their loudspeakers. A combination of real wood, sourced from sustainable walnut forests in north east Italy, and HDF (high density fibreboard) are used throughout their wood collections (Belong use Corian®- synthetic stone). All transducers and networks are Chario's own. Raw materials are transformed by skilled Italian craftsmen into beautiful loudspeakers that both look and sound great.

Craftsmanship

 

43 years of experience, psychoacoustic research and passion combine to create rich, luxurious and tactile loudspeakers. Each loudspeaker is made by hand. They are labour intensive and can require up to 200+ man hours to complete just one pair. Chario loudspeakers are impressive and unique because they use natural wood, not veneers and high quality in-house moving parts which are incredibly reliable.They are artisanal loudspeakers that both look and sound great. 

Cabinets

 

Dual wood types are used in the construction of Chario loudspeakers. 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. Solid walnut, jointed in dovetail slats for structural rigidity, 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.  The cabinets are populated with Chario's own transducers (loudspeaker unit) and networks which are tonally identical. The network divides the audible spectrum into sub-bass, bass, mid, treble for 4 way systems, bass, mid, treble for 3 way systems, bass, treble for 2 way systems and delivers it to the appropriate transducer (eg: tweeter for treble, mid for midrange and woofer for bass). When reproducing music they work in unison to reassemble the audio spectrum as if it were not divided, like a single fullrange dynamic transducer  (the theoretical perfect speaker which sadly does not exsist). At no point may one transducer stand out, good or bad, because the illusion will be spoilt. It must behave like a well rehearsed orchestra and it must be repeatable (reliable). The whole supercedes the sum of its very high quality parts. They are accomplished loud-speakers that both look and sound great.

 

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.

Performance

 

Chario loudspeakers are designed to work in rooms regardless of decor. They can be minimilist, maximilist or anywhere in between. High quality drivers 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 tweeter are thus as far apart as possible >1m, so large bass sound waves may propogate without disrupting fine treble 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 is 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 - it is a joy to behold!
