VISATON has blended its flagship tweeter (MHT 12) and smaller mid-bass units (TI 100) to produce a highly attractive loudspeaker with an overall sound quality which, at volumes up to medium level, far exceed the physical size of the unit.
The ARIA MHT is a variant of the popular smaller ARIA shelf-top speaker. Instead of being fitted with a fabric dome driver, the ARIA MHT has the excellent MHT 12 magnetostat. As a result, the crossover had to be tuned exactly to match the two drivers. Since magnetostats should not be separated at too low a frequency, the transfer frequency was set at 5000 Hz. This results in extremely clear high-frequency output even at high volumes. Getting the crossover to the right level to allow the TI 100 to operate up to 5000 Hz took some effort. This high-end mid-bass unit can produce unusually long cone excursion due to its long voice coil, which means it can generate a bass output level that is surprising considering the compact size. Thanks to the extremely rigid titanium diaphragm, the TI 100 stands out in the mid-range due to excellent overall presence and vocal clarity. In conjunction with the silky smooth treble range for which magnetostats are famous, this combination is a clear contender for the premium high-end loudspeaker league.

Cabinets and additional options shown separately
To compliment the loudspeaker kits, we offer an ever-expanding range of cabinets.
The ARIA MHT cabinets are supplied in four different options as shown below, all are fully CNC machined and rebated from 18mm MDF.
Cabinets supplied as a self-assembly flat-pack in either plain mdf or pre-veneered mdf of your choice. Both options are fully machined and rebated which means that the components all slot together very easily, just needing to be glued with the PVA wood adhesive that is provided. All the necessary holes and rebates for the drive units are pre-machined so you can assemble the cabinets without having any wood-work skills.
Factory built option:
Cabinets are supplied fully assembled eliminating the need for you to undertake any construction. The plain mdf cabinets are supplied assembled but unfinished ready for you to apply your own paint finish and fit the drive units etc,.
The veneered cabinets are supplied assembled and lacquered to a furniture finish. We can fit all the drive units, crossovers etc, to these veneered cabinets at no extra charge so your loudspeakers are fully built and ready to plug and play.
Price per pair excluding VAT
Use the drop down box to chose your kit option. The options allow you to buy this loudspeaker kit with or without cabinets. Cabinets can be flat-packed or fully built up, in plain unfinished mdf or veneered mdf
