Ilumnia Magister MKII Field Coil Speakers - Like New and Complete
Super unique speaker design from Ilumnia in Belgium.
Featuring a unique dynamic driver which provides little to no resistance as it lacks a suspension surround or spider cone which is always a compromise in speaker design.
Sure, it's not easy to execute, hence the complexity of an outboard power supply and the costs associated but well worth the effort. The result is a superbly linear and responsive driver.
Outboard power supply allows user to change the suspension stiffness to the desired value, now that's unique!
Controls on the rear of each speaker also allow you to dial in just the right amount of highs.
Here is what 6 Moons had to say about it:
This set will arrive looking like new and complete with everything as it left the factory.
The power supply cables were special ordered in two different lengths to accommodate placement of the supply on a side wall. One cable is 26ft, the other 13ft.
MSRP 20,000 Euros.
More from Ilumnia:
Our LEMS driver is not an evolution of the electrodynamic driver. It can be called a revolution.
It has 99.7% linear behaviour and has no compression at all which gives it a perfect dynamic response.
Mechanical resistance of the cone is nulled so there is no absorbtion of music signal, even not the tiniest one. Therefore the smallest detail can be heard.
The driver is ultra fast and this quality combined with it's linearity results in very high resolving power of complex music.
The ultra low levels of distortion will guarantee hours of listening pleasure without any listening fatigue.
We can easily say this driver comes close to perfection.
The Magister has been designed as a whole. We did not buy individual components and put them together. Everything was designed to match with each other in order to reach optimal synergy between components.
Therefore our filter could be reduced to a minimum and the music signal is kept uncompromised.
Possibility to adjust mid-high (midbass driver) and high (tweeter) energy according to room acoustics.
Integrated epdm damping rings for a soft stop of the cone at the end of it's maximum excursion.
Crossover frequency is raised to 9.5Khz instead of 5.5Khz (MKI version) to use max. potentional of the LEMS driver. This results in more perceptional energy at higher octaves yet without being harsh.

The SkyFi Testing Process for Speakers:
Our speaker evaluation process starts with a visual inspection of all drivers. We are looking for damaged or deteriorating woofer surrounds, dented tweeter domes, and cone damage. We also inspect the speaker connection points for loose or broken connectors.
After the initial visual inspection we connect the speakers to a reference amplifier with our preferred test tracks. With the speakers placed with proper distance we listen to each driver to make sure that they are producing the intended frequencies with no signs of distortion or rattle. During listening tests with test tracks we check for proper stereo imaging and bass response at various listening levels. If there are any audible signs of issues, the speakers are taken to the bench where we perform a frequency sweep to isolate the issue so that it can be resolved by component repair or replacement.
