KARLOTTA has been designed to be the perfect living room audio system. Measuring only 109 x 45 x 19 cm, she supplements most living rooms as a stylish design object, without dominating the interior. Thanks to the complete absence of external electronics, KARLOTTA makes serious high end audio compatible with a contemporary lifestyle. By acoustic layout, KARLOTTA combines the virtues of a no-compromise 2-way monitor with a superb large subwoofer and AMT diffuse field tweeters. Relying on the same groundbreaking components and technologies as the statement system KARL, KARLOTTA is another example for the quality leverage of the world’s best ceramic/diamond drivers by integrated state of the art digital/active amplification engines. In her weight category, there has probably never been a comparably coherent, transparent, complete and harmonic sonic image like that delivered by KARLOTTA. Many experienced audiophiles consider her to be the best sounding loudspeaker at her size and price – regardless of her additional features such as room adaptability and custom sound profile presets.

„The sound that karlotta develops i really came to love.“

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 do KARL and KARLOTTA. The upgrade variants KARL D. and KARLOTTA D. are equipped with solid diamond diaphragm tweeters, representing the final diaphragm material available on earth. In contrast to most 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. All Lyravox systems 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.


In favour of both aesthetics and acoustics, the speaker cabinet is coupled to the floor through a baseplate made of acoustically optimised technical stone. The extra weight of the baseplate improves the overall stability of the cabinet and the weight distribution within the speaker. Our specially formulated artificial stone has ideal acoustic properties, combining hardness with internal damping, making it the ideal interface between cabinet and floor.
