BOSTON, MA, USA, January 25, 2024 / — Alta Audio, the company that combines advanced technology and outstanding aesthetics to create industry-leading home audio loudspeakers, today announced Aphrodite, a four-way floor-standing speaker that heralds a new era for the brand.

“Aphrodite is the ultimate statement of Alta Audio’s approach to a no-compromise speaker,” says Walter Schofield, President, Nexus Audio Technologies. “From the ground up, Aphrodite represents a new level of product design for Alta Audio, with custom-designed elements that add up to a musical speaker that is equally at home in a multi-channel A/V system.”

Aphrodite, which will ship in late February at a suggested retail price of $50,000/pair with a 15% up-charge for pantone colors other than black, includes a custom-designed four-way driver complement, featuring one (1) titanium former 10” woofer with Alta Audio’s patented XTL bass tuning; one (1) hex cone 8 3/4” titanium former lower midrange; two (2) hex cone 6” upper midrange drivers; and one (1) amorphous core transformer, high output ribbon tweeter.

In addition, Aphrodite includes the updated — and now, patented — XTL transmission line. The XTL II hybrid transmission line is a ported enclosure design that greatly increases power handling, lowers distortion, and extends bass frequencies. Also, Alta Audio’s DampHard TM construction eliminates resonances while remaining lossless to maximize the dynamic range.

Aphrodite is available in Alta Audio’s super high-gloss black onyx finish with other colors available upon special order.

Adds Mr. Schofield: “Aphrodite is the culmination of a long career focused on the most memorable listening stereo and multichannel listening environments. And it’s only the beginning of what promises to be an event-filled year for Alta Audio.”
