    Overview from the web:

    Since the introduction of the Eidolon, we have encountered and engineered many significant advances in loudspeaker technology. These help us to achieve even lower harmonic distortion. New crossover topologies along with proprietary high purity, bandwidth optimized conductors result in a significant performance increase. The Eidolon Diamond incorporates the first solid diamond diaphragm tweeter, and our new woofer design results in lower 2nd and 3rd harmonic distortion components completes the concept.

    Each Eidolon Diamond is a rare commodity, produced in very limited numbers and is available in our exclusive Quilted-Birdseye Maple finish. No further fanfare seems necessary when one prominent reviewer has already called it, ?not only the best loudspeaker available at any price, but the finest component in the history of audio?.

    Testimonials:

    Here the Eidolon D permitted me to follow his playing note for note. The ability of the Avalon to illuminate the recording space perfectly, I have already spoken of. But the best thing about the much praised high frequency tweeter, was that I never really heard it as such. It is the ability of this transducer to represent the music as a whole that places it above the competition. The aperitif, a suitable wine, and the digestif, must all blend perfectly, complementing the meal. Here our set closes: Neil Patel ennobles the finest materials by harmoniously joining them together into a whole that is truly greater than the sum of the parts. Never has the master succeeded better.


    Conclusion: The Eidolon Diamond is not the only cabinet containing the noble diamond tweeter, but it is the one that will stand the test of time. With it, and its designer Neil Patel, this high-end loudspeaker will rewrite history. Audio Magazine, Germany

    "As I said at the start, the Avalon Eidolon Diamond breaks all the rules... It disappears musically, leaving no mark on the performance. If you want a speaker that's both musically convincing and natural, so much so that you can't hear it trying, then look no further... There might be a speaker out there that can bring more music into your home, and sit you closer to the performers, but if there is I haven't heard it. Diamonds are supposed to be forever - this could be the last speaker you ever need to buy." - Roy Gregory, Hi-Fi + magazine.
