The development of the PRISMA Speaker Technology has been an examination of a number of experiences and directions of the audio technology over the last 45 years. When the development progresses stop, Per Kirksaeter investigates by means of new angles of view to become a breakthrough in technology by other means.

By PRISMA you need down to half the output power in Watts that are usually needed.

Because PRISMA has a very high efficiency PRISMA gives a higher sound level per Watt than normal speakers do. This is called high efficiency speakers. As most of the amplifiers sold are of lower output power, we have made as our goal to make the best loudspeaker possible inside the Prisma price category to be used with amplifiers of lower output power. PRISMA 210 is one of the few speakers that can be connected to a 10 Watt tube amplifier. Therefore you can improve your system just by changing your present models to the PRISMA.

Gold plated biwiring terminals secure no oxidation in many years, so no music impulses get lost. The KIRKSAETER silk dome tweeter has a radiation of 160 degrees and gives you the full range of the high frequencies regardless if the speaker is placed in the ceilings or at a wall or where you decide to listen in your room. Therefore you can place the Prisma speakers, wherever you like in your room and always enjoy full High End fidelity and dynamics.
