Creating a Kharma Exquisite loudspeaker is a very long process. Looking for the perfect shape, materials and sound… that sense of graceful elegance you would expect from a handcrafted loudspeaker. The far-reaching attention to detail makes this speaker range a class of its own. This even more becomes clear by the Diamond tweeter which is standard in the Exquisite Collection. This all is the result of our unique reputation and style, which is realized by a team of highly dedicated, committed specialists.
The Exquisite Midi Grand, part of the Flagship series of the Exquisite Collection, materialises the absolute end of the high-end in audio, with only reality as a real competitor. The Exquisite Midi Grand is the more modest version of its bigger relative, the Exquisite Grand. However, the Exquisite Midi Grand also has still the unique capacity to portray musical recordings in there realistic size. Not everything is made big as so many other big loudspeakers do, but acoustic sizes really match: a small and fragile piano note will sound like the original and will give the same feeling of that special moment, but so will a big orchestra sound as impressive as during the concert performance. All of that with utmost ease at every playing level.
The Exquisite Midi Grand is a virtual point-source system, where the double Diamond tweeters project the image very precise with incredible stage depth, height and width. The result is a loudspeaker that is capable to portray musical recordings in their realistic size.
This system can only achieve such astonishing properties by using complex crossover techniques to lead all drivers to the right music composition. Therefore the crossover can be seen as an orchestra conductor, which will have to turn the information received through the loudspeaker cable into a musical spectacle as if it was read from a music sheet. Kharma has mastered the art of retaining musical wholeness with the proprietary crossover technique used in the Exquisite Midi Grand. This technique is seldom used by other manufacturers because of its complexity.
The Exquisite Midi Grand comes with the Signature treatment of Kharma, which is mainly implemented to improve the structure born vibration properties of the driver chassis and to enhance the magnetical field handling as well as proprietary techniques. This is realised by using the Silver/Gold Signature version of the Kharma Binding Post System, refining the internal cabling by proprietary Kharma processes and modifying the drivers for better performance.
The drivers can be seen as the engine of the loudspeaker, which must create the musicality that may be expected from the uncompromised design of the Exquisite Midi Grand. Therefore the quality of the drivers is crucial for creating an ultra-high-end sound.
Without a doubt the quality is guaranteed by using two Diamond tweeters as a standard in the Exquisite Midi Grand. These high-frequency drivers are true technological wonders. The tweeters have a diamond cone which have been realised by the so called CVD process. With this process incredible stiffness is reached with a minimum of thickness of only 50 µm. Notice a human hair is in the range of 17 to 180 µm. The cone is the most essential part of the tweeter and because this cone is made of Diamond the tweeter is capable to create impressively pure high frequencies.
High frequencies: 1-inch Diamond concave tweeter
Mid frequencies: 2 x 7-inch Omega 7 drivers
Low frequencies: 2 x 11-inch Nomex-Kevlar drivers
The technical specifications expose the uncompromised design of the Exquisite Midi Grand. This is especially stressed by the wide frequency spectrum the loudspeaker can produce.

Program power: 1000 Watt
Frequency range: 24 Hz – 90 kHz
Nominal Impedance: 4 Ohm
Efficiency 2,83V / 1m: 91 dB
Maximum SPL: 118 dB
The physical dimensions of the Exquisite Midi Grand are still as impressive as the musical performance this loudspeaker has to offer. However, the Midi Grand has a more modest size than the Exquisite Grand, which therefore will better fit into a smaller room.

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 three programs to be able to fulfil all levels of customization: the Primary Stock Program, the Kharma Optionary Program and the Kharma Privileges Program.
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.
