The Elegance collection is succeeding the very successful Ceramique line of high-end loudspeakers from Kharma. The Ceramique loudspeaker line was introduced in 1998 and the use of Ceramique-based drivers was the reason for naming this series like we did.
During the past years Kharma has been researching new technologies as how to improve and set a new standard again to the high-end audio world. We are very proud now to offer the very latest high-tech technologies again in the new Elegance series. The shape of the cabinets has been unchanged because the shape is fully functional to the way the sound develops from the loudspeakers. But the beauty of the design has been improved upon, by redesigning the stand and bottom, the redesign of the front cover and many other small design details.
Besides all drivers of the Elegance dB7 are significantly improved. The tweeter is now made of pure beryllium, which is the next best material to diamond. Furthermore the speaker is equipped with double 7-inch Kharma Composite Driver (KCD), which is based on a new cone technology especially developed by Kharma. The double 7 inch equipment of this new Elegance speaker explains the appropriate name Elegance dB7.
This dB7 has an unique polygonal shaped cabinet for optimum phase behaviour and minimum group time-delay. Besides, the cabinet is made of 35 mm high density MDF to increase the neutrality of the cabinet and is equipped with advanced acoustic damping materials to absorb the energy in a wide frequency range.
The beauty of the new Elegance dB7 is shown by the many small details. First of all this speaker has trimmable luxury rings around the drivers, which hide the mechanical screws of the driver. Moreover the speaker is accentuated by many chrome details like the logo plates on the front and side, parts of the completely redesigned SDSS-stand. Not to forget that also the back side of this speaker is designed in perfection and shows the true dedication of Kharma.
The dB7 has also a new improved grill, which is made detachable by embedded magnets to really have the freedom to adapt the Elegance dB7 to your own style. With grill, the Elegance gives an elegant and luxury feeling, where the dB7 without grill shows the beauty of the new composite drivers without actual showing that a grill could be attached.
The heart of the speaker is formed by the double 7-inch Kharma Composite driver which is equipped with a new cone technology developed by Kharma. It consists of ultra high-tech rocket science/formula 1 based fibres created into a setting with optimised behaviour for the purpose. Finite element analysis with advanced computer systems have leaded to optimised cone-shapes with a near perfect behaviour for a 7-inch driver. This double 7-inch Kharma Composite driver therefore leads to an incredible detailed base.
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

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.
