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
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
86dB which eliminates any possibility of using them with low power tube
gear... of the ones that are somewhat more efficient you'll
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
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.
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.

The DM945's can be custom built to order with exotic woods of your
choice for an additional fee and no option to return. The pair
pictured below added close to $500.00 to the price, but price varies
widely due to the availability and types of exotic woods. If you
want a custom pair of DM945's please e-mail us for a quote and mention
the finish you're after or better yet send a picture of something made
from the wood you like so we can see the finish. Custom DM945's
may become unavailable at any time.
ON THE SOUND & PERFORMANCE
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
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.
