Carmel 3 is the first model in YG Acoustics’ Reference range, which is now the Reference 3 range following further development in conjunction with Cambridge Acoustic Sciences.
The Reference 3 series demonstrates the very best that can be achieved in accuracy and musicality, combining advanced materials with cutting edge science and engineering. They are designed without compromise, with the singular aim of transporting listeners into the heart of the music.
Carmel 3 delivers the highest accuracy and musicality possible from a compact two-channel loudspeaker. Technologies have been applied from YG Acoustics’ XV, Sonja and Hailey models to a compact form factor that is compatible with any room. Carmel 3 throws a huge sound-stage with effortless detail. Incredible delicacy is combined with wide dynamics, transparency and authority.
The Reference loudspeakers are structured from high-grade aerospace aluminium, machined in-house to incredible precision, and meticulously hand-built by experts in their Colorado workshop.
The Reference 3 models include new technologies and design innovations based on novel theoretical models, detailed multi-domain simulations and thousands of hours of listening. The end result: loudspeakers which convey every nuance of emotion, each musical cue from the tiniest microdetail to the visceral impact of the most thunderous crescendo.
An entirely new, hybrid Lattice tweeter uses a novel airframe in a specially-selected aerospace alloy, machined by YG Acoustics. It delivers exceptionally low distortion over a huge bandwidth, with wide angular dispersion to support a large sweet-spot.
Groundbreaking, third-generation Ultracoherent crossovers apply a deep understanding from simulation to deliver performance never before possible, and BilletCore drivers use advanced motors and cones machined in-house from solid billet, offering some of the highest performance and lowest distortion in any driver available today.
