Neat Momentum SX5i
Neat Momentum SX5i
Superb unmarked american walnut real wood veneer. Two sets of speakers terminals for bi-wiring or bi-amping. Plinth kit included.
The Neat Momentum SX5i is a full range 2.5-way iso-baric floorstanding speaker, which uses four drive units in each enclosure. Iso-baric loading is a familiar feature on Neat loudspeakers, this being a favoured system for delivering exemplary bass performance. A second bass driver, which is hidden out of sight inside the cabinet, works in tandem with the driver in the base of each speaker. This allows the visible driver to operate without fighting the pressure variations inside the cabinet, which leads to an incredibly clean, taut and highly detailed low frequency performance.
The iso-baric principle is exploited in quite a radical way in the design of the Momentum SX5i, which features two 6.5" bass drive units in an integral subwoofer arrangement (this part of the system is hidden from view). An Ultimatum-type bass/midrange main driver then handles frequencies up to the crossover point, where the new SXT inverted anodised aluminium dome tweeter, with its fluid and dynamic high frequency response, takes over. All of the drive units used in the Momentum models are custom-made to Neat’s designs. Similarly, the close tolerance capacitors and chokes used in the crossover networks are all made to Neat's exacting requirements, by leading UK suppliers.
All of this technology is presented in attractive, room-friendly cabinets in a variety of standard and custom finishes to match any decor. More importantly, Neat Momentum loudspeakers are capable of delivering a compelling musical experience where it really matters – in the listening room.
The Momentum SX5i can be upgraded easily with the addition of the dedicated Tri-Laminate Feet Kit. These replace the standard floor spikes and allow greater stability and overall cleaner presentation. They Tri-Laminate Feet use the same top-adjusting spike concept as the Neat Ultimatum floorstanding models, which makes them extremely easy to level and stabilise.
