In the world of standard dynamic loudspeakers the dB11-S presents a never before achieved level of excellence in performance and design and a synergy in acoustical, electro-mechanical and aesthetical design. Multidisciplinary engineering on avoiding structure born and non-structure born resonances supporting the holy grail of revealing complex musical sound scapes and reproducing them, all in a compact nice aesthetical design to bring pleasure for many years to the user.
Kharma is very proud to present the new Elegance dB11-S, which has been rewarded with the CES Innovations Award of 2014.The new speaker was judged upon different fields of engineering, aesthetic design qualities, user’s value and of course it’s innovative element. The dB11-S is judged by a pre-eminent panel of independent industrial designers, independent engineers and members of the trade media to honour outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products across 29 product categories.
Elegance dB11-S: Specifications
The new cabinet is partially made of Kharma Bullet Proof Laminate (specific density > 1,25g/cm3). This material is a very high pressure laminate treated with a special coating. The KBPL increases rigidity compared to techniques used in the past, while the coating and dampening eliminates the last traces of resonance.
The Kharma Elegance dB11-S presents the ultimate synergy in sound reproduction with dynamic transducers. Each part of the design constitutes the maximum possible at current times. The acoustically perfect shape of cabinet with polygon slanted, angled baffle supports seamless transitions in the crossover regions between the drivers and off-axis group delay behaviour. Result is that the reflections of sidewalls in the room are more phases coherent and build up more realistic 3D imaging with the direct perceived.
The midrange of this speaker is formed by the 7-inch Kharma Omega 7 driver which is equipped with a new cone technology developed by Kharma. This cone is made of ultra-high-modulus carbon technology, which consists of the best fibres you can find in the world at this moment. Moreover, finite element analysis with advanced computer systems have leaded to optimised cone-shapes with a near perfect behaviour for a 7-inch driver.
The effect of this innovation combined with the new development of a pure Beryllium tweeter is very clearly audible in even a short listening session. Ultra-high resolution in the midrange depicting many layers and sound colours like in excellent wines, where the complexity of the whole history of making the wine, can be tasted in a moment. It is like the music is coming from an inner space with an infinite number of layering. No mp3 allowed please, give full credit to these wonders

Elegance dB11-S: Options
A Kharma product must not only have an unbelievable refined sound, which meets the needs of a true music lover, but also must have an astonishing finish to compete with the musicality of the system. As known by Kharma, every customer can have a taste of its own. Therefore Kharma developed two programs to be able to fulfil all levels of customization.
Primary Stock Program
This program has been targeted as to create the shortest possible delivery time for the official Kharma products. This program is therefore based on the most popular Kharma finishes, which have proven their looks in the past by many successful sales. In this way we can deliver both the high refined sound as the astonishing finish that can be expected from Kharma.
Kharma Optionary Program
The visual tuning in the Optionary Program will give the customer the opportunity to choose between special selected Kharma colours. These colours have a higher level of customization and therefore the delivery time will be slightly longer than a Stock Program colour.
Colours shown only give an indication of the real paint colour, contact your dealer for references.
