The Kharma Exquisite Classique is the prime model of the Exquisite Collection and shows the true dedication of Kharma without any compromise. The Exquisite Classique was previously known as the Exquisite Reference, but had an upgrade in the name since it can be stated as the Classic model of the Exquisite Collection. The Exquisite Classique comes with the Signature treatment of Kharma, which is first of all implemented to improve the structure born vibrational properties of the driver chassis and secondly to enhance the magnetically field handling as well as proprietary techniques.
Furthermore the incredible attention to detail has led to the use of pure silver and gold alloys for internal cabling. Resulting that the Exquisite Classique has now struck an unbelievable level of detail.
The cabinet of the Exquisite Classique is a piece of art in every way, from the use of perfect materials to construction and finish, all are exceptional. The cabinet is built up using vertically layered panels with carefully computed irregularity shaped cut-outs, which minimizes air born resonance. This minimization of air born resonance inside the cabinet is important, because the cabinet should absolutely have no contribution to the sound field itself.
The combination of high pressure laminate panels, the irregular shaped cut-ours, sophisticated acoustical damping and the de-coupling substance between panels to prevent structure-born energy travelling from one panel to another guarantees a resonance-dead cabinet. The Exquisite Classique has as result a patented cabinet which doesn’t contribute to the sound field itself. Simply every form and every detail on the Exquisite Classique has a purpose in the mechanism to create an absolute sound.
