New Needle is a transsionline speaker with an Omnes Audio fullrange driver: Omnes Audio BB 3.5.
New Needle has been developed by Thorsten Fischer.
The crossover consists of an RCL circuit which is smoothing the frequency in the midrange.
The frequency response of this speaker is well balanced. The decay spectrum is nearly perfect. At low volume, i.e. 85 dB at 1 m, the nonlinear distortions are lower than 0,5% above 700 Hz and doesn't exceed 1% at 95 dB at 1 m .

Kit without cabinet, price per speaker EUR 66,90 excl. VAT: € 57.67 / $ 68.05
The high-end kit is delivered with a baked varnish air core coil for minimizing microphonic effects. - The current flow through the coil creates a magnetic field which sets the reel of wire in motion. This motion induces a voltage in the coil which adds itself to the signal. The stiffer the reel of wire is, the less the signal will be altered. The capacitor is a high quality Clarity-Cap ESA 250 V.
