Unleash the Kraken – The recent expansion of Denafrips into a new very large factory was accompanied by the addition of a design team with much prior experience in speaker design. Their first effort is the Poseidon [S$2'649 or ~€1'900/pr], a 6½" rear-ported 2-way monitor with drivers from Italian specialist SICA. The speaker measures 26x40x36cm WxHxD, weighs 9kg, has 88dB sensitivity and claims bandwidth of 48Hz-20kHz. Its MDF cabinet is finished in high-gloss piano lacquer. Warranty is 3 years.
