The CS2.7 incorporates new technologies developed for our flagship CS3.7 loudspeaker including a state-of-the-art coaxial/coincident driver. The midrange element itself has perfectly neutral response to 20kHz – an upper range specification seldom attained even by tweeters.
These speakers were originally set to be released to the market for $9995, but now revised to $7995 – making these an ever sweeter deal. An excellent review can be found in the current issue of The Absolute Sound magazine.

Chorus 726 V
These floorstanding loudspeakers are the accessible high-end loudspeaker incarnate. Very technically advanced, with a 3-way design that marries exceptional definition of the medium with the power of the two 6-1/2"(16.5cm) woofers.
Chorus 714 V
The smallest of the Chorus V floorstanders, these beauties exhibit a fine form with a minimal footprint. Elaborate yet balanced, the Chorus 714 V benefits from two 5.5" (14cm) woofers in a 2-and-a-half way configuration to deliver solid bass. Ideal for rooms of 15 to 25m2.
Chorus 705 V
The Chorus 705 V is the ideal bookshelf loudspeaker for installation in rooms of modest dimensions (approximately 15m2). With a responsive and lively bass, it represents the foundations of a great system, especially when paired with the SW 700 V subwoofer.
Chorus CC 700 V
The Chorus CC 700 V is a center channel loudspeaker that has been phase-optimized to offer an optimal directionality. Its qualities of dynamics, linearity and timbre are equally in phase with the ensemble of the Chorus 700 V line to maintain an excellent sonic coherence.
