Davone Twist Classic Floorstanding Loudspeakers (Pair)
Music with a Twist
Being the latest addition to the Davone product line, the Twist embodies our today’s thought in sound and design. The twisted side panels combine stiffness and elegance by pointing inwards at the bottom and outwards at the top. The newly developed High Resolution cross-over and Danish designed drivers ensure the highest fidelity. But why stop there? With a baffle dressed in any upholstery fabric of your choosing, the customizable Twist-Select introduces a new furniture grade styling that makes it a breeze to integrate the Twist in your living room. The two versions "Twist-Classic" with fixed black grille and the "Twist-Select" with customizable baffle without grille are handbuild in Denmark.
Optimised room response
The sound quality of a loudspeaker is to a large extent determined by how it radiates sound into the 3 dimensions of a room. Special focus has therefore been on the so called room response of the Twist. We did actually rebuild our listening room to make it sound more neutral for this purpose. Improving the room response led to a low and steep 24dB/Oct Linkwitz-Riley cross-over. The result is a very clear and open upper midrange, without ever becoming aggressive.
the Twist Select
Breaking with traditions, the Twist Select can easily be customized in production. In today's monochromatic world, the Twist baffle can be dressed with any upholstry fabric of your choosing. This fabric is very different from normal loudspeaker cloth in that it offers a much richer choice of thread colors and texture because it does not have to be sound transparent. Our pre-selection is from the Danish Kvadrat Metric series. The carefully machined loudspeakers and paint matched screws add beautiful detail.
Danish quality drivers
Just like you would expect, the Twist uses top of the range drivers that were designed according to the best Danish traditions. The special fibre blend woofer membrane gives exactly the right combination of stiffness and damping. The refined anodised aluminium dome tweeter achieves high levels of detail thanks to it's pistonic motion for the entire audible frequency range. The large non reflective chamber enables a low cross-over frequency for seamless integration of the two drivers.
Colours and materials
The Twist is available with fixed grille, or without grille. The fixed grille colour options are listed below. Without the grille, the front can be customised with almost any upholstery fabric of your choosing. Upholstery fabric offers a rich choice of thread colours and texture because it does not have to be sound transparent. But having many options also makes it difficult to choose. Therefore, below we list a small selection from the Danish Kvadrat Metric series we know suit the Twist very well. The warm Brown and Blue-Grey are shown on this website
