Onkyo, manufacturer of components Hi-Fi and other audio equipment, has announced the successful development of drivers for headphone new type, with celinemaniac the diaphragm. New technology will be used in 2016 in the Onkyo products and solutions for OEM partners of the company. Then we come to expect and the first commercial products, while there are only prototypes.
In the application of this particular metal makes sense: magnesium is durable, plastic, easy to work, but its density (of 1.738 g/cm3) is less than that of aluminum (2.7 g/cm3) and, especially, titanium (4,32‒4,50 g/cm3, depending on crystal modification). Therefore it looks appropriate for the role element, which by the nature of their activities should be subjected to high frequency vibrations and to rigidly retain the shape. In addition, the use of magnesium reduces the level of distortion.
The new driver is made immediately with an integrated diaphragm that is created by casting (molding), and has extended frequency response, really reaching 40 KHz, and with a minimum of distortion. The detail of the transmission of musical nuances of the new speakers is also higher. Information about new technology and its benefits, while not very many, so it remains only to wait for the release of commercial products based on new technology.
