KARLINA II has been directly derived from KARLOTTA, the audiophile benchmark for living room compatible high end audio. Considerably slimmer and more affordable, she is powerful enough to handle rooms up to 60 m2 with ease, even at live concert levels. Like KARLOTTA, KARLINA II combines the virtues of a no-compromise 2-way monitor with a super fast and responsive 10“ aluminum subwoofer plus a top firing AMT diffuse field tweeter. Thanks to her newly developed, Lyravox exclusive Accuton®  ceramic dome tweeter, she is on par with her bigger sister in terms of imaging and soundstaging when used in matching room sizes. KARLINA II brings to the home a highly interior friendly piece of technology that delivers the best possible sound quality of a speaker of her size, while being perfectly comfortable in use, versatile in functionality and – most of all – adaptive to the room’s acoustics and the listener’s taste. A dream system that would not have been possible to create only a few years ago, relying on the most sophisticated speaker driver technology on the planet, the latest amplification and the most powerful signal processing – all carefully blended within the traditional art of finely tuned acoustics, to achieve the true state of the art.

„One of the most Audiophile Active Speakers overall.“

Malte Ruhnke, Stereoplay


As one of the major technical advances in audio, the direct amplification of a speaker driver eliminates distortions, phase shifts and decoupling caused by traditional passive crossover networks. In combination with DSP processing, not only a more exact crossover is possible, but also perfect time and phase alignments, more refined equalisation, dynamics-dependent corrections, and room-dependent corrections.


In order to achieve the ideal of a lossless audio chain, Lyravox integrates a multi-input preamplifier into its systems. The direct integration avoids sonic bottlenecks, improving the overall sound quality. The two analogue (balanced, unbalanced) and three digital (AES, SPDIF, optical) input interfaces allow the connection of all types of high end audio sources. The direct linking of digital streamers or music servers represents the most direct audio chain without unnecessary components in the way. Analogue sources can also feed directly into the speakers, forming a signal path superior to any external pre-amplifier solution. All functions are remote controlled.


The physical ideal of a speaker driver is that of a perfect piston, moving air without internal vibrations. This ideal is only achievable with ultra hard diaphragms such as beryllium, magnesium, ceramic, or even diamond. The most consequent and advanced designs in this field are the latest generation drivers by acclaimed German specialist Accuton® . Many of the world’s most sophisticated loudspeakers are relying on these drivers, and so does Lyravox´K-Series. In contrast to all other manufacturers, Lyravox employs digital/active engines to fully exploit the potential of the high-tech Accuton® drivers.


In a real-life music performance, the sonic waves of musical instruments are being dispersed in all directions, not only towards the listener. The dispersion of traditional loudspeakers with front drivers is therefore not fully representative of real music. Lyravox systems (except studio monitors) are equipped with additional drivers for the projection of the ‚ambient’ part of the music, partly through individual DSP-controlled channels.


A large part of a loudspeaker’s quality is determined by its enclosure. All Lyravox systems are built to proven high end standards, applying to the choice and combination of the cabinet materials, cabinet geometry, internal bracing, finely tuned damping, internal absorbers (for the minimization of electronic corrections), internal sound and pressure dispersion, midrange cabinet ventilation, reflex channel optimization, external diffraction and optimal wall or floor coupling.


One of the most relevant factors of sound quality is the interaction of a loudspeaker with the surrounding room. In the absence of serious physical acoustic room treatment – as in a recording studio – the performance of an audio system is a question of luck, and never optimal. For best results, a matching of the system’s frequency response with the room’s acoustic behaviour is mandatory. This requires the system to be adjustable through a parametric (fully configurable) EQ. In the Lyravox systems, that EQ is implemented losslessly within the DSP, as an overlay of the default digital sound settings – not in an additional stage of signal processing. Given the high level of the systems’ reproduction quality, the room adaptation EQ needs to be set in a process of professional measurement and knowledgeable listening, which is a free Lyravox service in most countries.
