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 becomes crystal 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 and committed specialists.
The new Kharma Exquisite Midi is designed and built without compromise. Every part of this speaker, from the extreme dense HPL-plates to the smallest details has a function in the complex process of creating ultra high-end sound. The advanced Diamond dome technology used in the Exquisite Collection emphasizes this incredible attention to detail even more. Furthermore the uncompromised design also resulted in the beauty of the Exquisite Midi, which is for example shown by the gold-plated side-trimming or the new high-gloss Macassar panels.
The elegant massive cabinet of the Exquisite Midi is made of high pressure laminate in a multi-layer construction. The cabinet is a piece of art in every way, from the use of perfect materials to construction and finish, all are exceptional.
Inside this cabinet the beating heart of this loudspeaker, the crossover, controls the musicality of the Exquisite Midi. Therefore the crossover can be seen as an orchestra conductor, which will turn the information received through the loudspeaker cable into a musical spectacle as if it was read from a music sheet. Hence both the orchestra conductor and the crossover will have to lead the group of musician or drivers respectively to a musical piece of art.
Kharma has mastered the art of retaining musical wholeness with the proprietary crossover technique used in the Exquisite Midi. This technique is seldom used by other manufacturers because of its complexity. This results in the Kharma crossover where simply is no gap in information.
The musicality you may expect from the Exquisite Midi is for an important part created by the drivers, which can be seen as the engine of the loudspeaker. The quality of the driver is therefore crucial to compete with reality.
Without a doubt the quality of the driver is guaranteed by using a Diamond tweeter as a standard in the Exquisite Collection. This high-frequency driver is a true technological wonder. The tweeter has 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 x 1-inch Diamond concave tweeter
Mid frequencies: 1 x 7-inch Omega 7 driver
Low frequencies: 2 x 8-inch Nomex-Kevlar driver
The uncompromised design of the Exquisite Midi has resulted in impressive technical specifications. This is especially stressed by the wide frequency spectrum the loudspeaker can produce. In this way this loudspeaker can create an ultra high-end sound.

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.
