Aretai Contra 200F
A svelte performer, delivering inspiring clarity and a confident bass – for the best enjoyment in medium and smaller rooms.
The distinguished midrange clarity of Contra 200F gives you plenty of clean acoustic power to fill the room, loud or quiet. The sensitive driver ultra-light membranes and highly linear neodymium motors allow you to relish the finest musical details at all listening levels regardless of the amplifier type.
Our custom-designed waveguide provides a wide and coherent soundstage with depth and focus. By controlling the direct/reflected sound in a very balanced manner it also envelops the listener in stunningly live-like sound.
The cleverly constructed enclosure design combined with meticulous response tuning in real rooms allows Contra 200F to deliver a bass that is deep and punchy at the same time.
The above-average sensitivity and amplifier-friendly impedance of Contra 200F clearly reveals the capabilities of a wide range of amplifiers, allowing them to sound effortlessly dynamic. In our sophisticated filter design the drivers are crossed over within their safest operational bandwidth, contributing to their longevity while bringing you every precious bit of sensitivity.
The opposite 8” bass driver arrangement focuses more energy towards the listener and less to the sidewalls, significantly reducing boominess in the room interaction. The deliberately chosen height difference of the bass drivers smoothes out vertical room resonance. The frontal bass driver aiming at the height of your chest produces the most natural perception of kick-drum transients. The bass response is promptly even down to 25-30Hz, depending on the particular room size, while also delivering some of the infrabass energy below 20Hz.
The crossover has tight tolerance premium parts from leading manufacturers to ensure maximum clarity and response precision. The silver-coated OFC copper internal wiring allows the various frequency currents to flow unobstructed with minimal loss of the precious usable power.
If you have recognized different amplifier types as excelling best within the particular frequency range, our tri-amping terminal option allows you to parallel them for that extra edge.
