Finnish manufacturer Hypostatic has released their new Blackbird speakers, equipped with a magnetostatic dipole driver.
Hypostatic’s Blackbird features a woofer placed in a steel enclosure and fitted with sturdy birch plywood side panels. Finished with a matte finish using a special oil-based wax made from natural plant material. The Finns further developed their own CMD (Curved Magnetostatic Dipole) driver that handles the mid and treble. The curved diaphragm should prevent excessive directionality of the treble. The speakers have an impedance of 4 Ohms, with the cutoff frequency at 250 Hz. The Hypostatic Blackbird costs €6490 per pair.
