TIDAL SUNRAY

 

TIDAL Sunray. The G2 generation of it is the successor of the first generation TIDAL Sunray, built from 2003 - 2013. The first generation Sunray was and still is - very literally - a Statement, beyond the alleged top league and must allow only one comparison: a very good seat in a live concert. Reference reviews and many  'Best Sound of Show' from the most important magazines worldwide were the result and lead to an actually incredible number of sales given the exclusivity of this speaker.

The Sunray G2 generation offers a complete new speaker from the inside while having the iconic and unique outer design only subtle improved - such as all classics. It uses all completely new developed BCC-drivers, a new crossover topology, TIDAL's proprietary cabinet material TIRALIT. An all-new designed backside terminal with pure silver binding posts is the entry for the finest signals one like to feed this speaker with.
