Opal 23 Loudspeakers are a two-way design based on a pair of Pylon Audio PSW 18.8 CS woofers, which are characterized by very good measurable parameters and what we value most in the paper membranes - selectivity with the degree of heat. Upper bands are entrusted to a 25mm silk dome tweeter, which thanks to its compact size enabled to bring closer the acoustic centres of the loudspeakers set.
Opal 23 Loudspeakers offer above-average clarity in diameter, this is the set that you can successfully use in a home recording studio, but the whole is composed in such a way that it will not fall into technical mannerism. Many hours of listening of any kind of music are just a pure pleasure.
The symmetrical configuration of the speakers in Opal 23 Loudspeakers allows you to listen from even a short distance, offering arranged soundstage with a good insight into the recording. The sound is saturated with well-controlled bass, giving to the songs compactness and speed. The bass is able to show its power on the entertainment recordings that require such presentation.
18 mm body together with the back of the enclosure is connected with a thicken 22mm screen, aimed at reducing any vibration of the front wall. An additional element stiffening the whole structure are the reinforcements placed in its sensitive places.

Portals Stereo and Kolorowo published on their blog a wide review of Opal 23 Loudspeakers. This set is the first that is based on our own authorship Pylon Audio PSW 18.8 CS woofers.
"(...)Honestly, I can admit that I was a little bit afraid of applying the brand speakers in a D'Appolito, because it requires from the designers a reliable and practical expert knowledge of acoustics, optimally calculated volume of the boxes, a properly tuned speakers and additionally must meet the requirements concerning crossovers, which frequency of division must be respectively low and the edge filter should be adequately inclined.

"(...)Enthusiastic and powerful way of presenting the music sound favors heavier repertoire, but this lighter also has a suitable size and excellent transparency, which is supported by a very wide dynamic range and natural color that are being produced by the paper speakers.
