Design Features

Silverline Audio enthusiastically celebrates its 18th anniversary by presenting their latest loudspeaker, Ode to Joy. Ode to Joy is dedicated to the joy and love of music and life.

Ode to Joy is a more compact version of its larger sibling, Ode to Love, but shares the same design philosophies.

Ode to Joy is designed and engineered to reveal the natural beauty and the life of music.  Our extensive accumulated experience in the integration of cabinet and crossover technologies, together with the use of superbly engineered Dynaudio transducers provide superior transparency and dynamics, while offering extremely refined music timbres and shadings. Dual woofers and mid-drivers are symmetrically precision-aligned around the tweeter to give the most coherent sound and precise imaging of any music source. The thickness of the cabinet ranges from 2.25" to 3", resulting in a rigid and effectively damped structure  that provides a more open sound and rock-like stable imaging. The meticulously crafted cabinet together with dual 5" and 9.5" high power handling long throw transducers, are capable of moving mountain of air.
