THE UNICORN MK II
The Unicorn Mk II uses a single DDD driver operating full range, radiating both directly as in other German Physiks designs, but uniquely, it also uses its low frequency output in its pistonic mode, which is radiated via a horn.
Ultra Fast Low Distortion Bass
The horn system produces a bass that is fast, agile and extremely clean. There is no hint of bloat or overhang and distortion is impressively low. Bass wind and string instruments are reproduced with a degree of fidelity rarely heard outside of the concert hall. If you are a horn loudspeaker aficionado, this could very well be the loudspeaker that you have been waiting for.
Well Balanced Frequency Response
The Unicorn Mk II's superb bass is complimented by its performance in the rest of the frequency range. Both modes of the DDD driver's output are seamlessly integrated to produce an extremely clear and musical sound picture.
3-Dimensional Stereo Imaging
The Unicorn Mk II displays the realistic 3-dimensional stereo imaging we have come to expect from all German Physiks designs and this greatly adds to the enjoyment of the musical performance.
