OVERVIEW

The
Decware Mini's, aka Model DM945's are small bookshelf speakers designed around the unique properties of the Silver Flute 8 inch wool cone drivers.  Unique because they require one of the smallest enclosures for an 8 inch woofer anywhere in the world.  Unique because they are an honest 94dB efficient with a single watt of power.  Unique because they have nearly flawless frequency balance out past 6kHz with no crossover of any kind.  The result is simply unbelievable performance that trounces many floor standing speakers 3 times their size!

The top-end is handled by a superb isodynamic planar ribbon tweeter.  The vertical and horizontal dispersion is so good these speakers often end up in studios as near field monitors, yet their biggest market is serious audiophiles who stand mount them in large rooms.

This is an ideal speaker for lower power tube amps, in fact our 2 watt SET amp drives them with authority and weight.


DID YOU KNOW

That almost all bookshelf speakers this size are less than 90dB efficient?  In fact most hi-end bookshelf speakers are between 84dB and 86dB which eliminates any possibility of using them with low power tube gear...  of the ones that are somewhat more efficient you'll almost always find smaller drivers, ie., 4, 5 or 6 inch that don't have enough real base to be fully satisfying.

The Decware Mini's are a rare exception to these design limitations.  They give you the sound of a large speaker in a very small space and at an efficiency that will make even small amps sound big.



GRILLS

The ultra clean look of this speaker comes in part from the hidden neodymium magnets in the grills and in the cabinets.  Impossible to break off and always work perfectly no matter how many times you take the grill on and off.



Hi-end hardware
HARDWARE

Machined and anodized, these thick aluminum plates are hosting top-end binding posts to virtually eliminate the flex and vibration associated with standard speaker terminal cups.  You can't wear these out or break them off even if you use the most aggressive over-sized speaker wires.

Gold jumpers are included, that if removed will allow you to bi-wire or bi-amp this loudspeaker.

All internal wire is oxygen free copper with silver solder.  There are no crimp connections anywhere.

OPTIONS

These fine speakers use the finest components available and no further upgrades are available or needed.


STANDARD FINISHES

The Decware Mini's come in natural Cherry with a furniture grade lacquer finish.  The cherry darkens with age...  usually up to 4 shades over the course of a few years and then stays that way.  We only offer this speaker in the standard Chery finish which makes this incredible price possible.



ON THE SOUND & PERFORMANCE

These speakers are at home as near field monitors on your desktop or studio console.  And of course they also excel as stand mounted speakers in your listening room, with a huge tangible sound stage and believable speed and dynamics that set Decware speakers apart from the main stream.  The wool cone 8 inch driver gives stunning weight behind a glass smooth mid-range and this is complimented by the air and shimmer that is only found in ribbon tweeters.  This speaker leans just slightly toward warm, however the bass is as tight as a brick and can not be flustered even with Hip Hop bass lines.  Female vocals are sublime and have excellent depth and are never in your face or pinched sounding like so many high efficiency speakers tend to be.



 
HISTORY OF REVISIONS
