HYPOSTATIC®

HIGH END LOUDSPEAKERS


Absolute Sound - Fundamental Reality

”Hypostatic is the underlying substance and the fundamental reality that supports all else.”

 

INDIGENUM

     

Hypostatic’s first model Indigenum (lat. native) was introduced in August 2018.

Curved Magnetostatic Dipole

We designed our own CMD driver which produces the Mid/Hi frequencies. The ultra light diaphragm’s moving mass is only 1.63g and is capable of producing every little detail in the audio signal. The diaphragm is curved to avoid excess directivity at high frequencies. The horizontal dispersion is 60°. The driver is made of polished stainless steel. It has three rows of super strong neodymium magnets which are assembled to a nickel plated pole piece.

Hybrid Design

Indigenum is a two way passive speaker. Its hybrid construction brings together a beautiful monopole woofer unit with an outstanding CMD driver.

Woofer Unit

The woofer unit is made of one-piece composite stone. The construction is extremely stiff and all harmful resonances are eliminated. The unit is painted and then lacquered. The final lacquer layer is sanded and polished by hand to get a high gloss surface. Available in all colours. The 11″ Scanspeak Revelator woofer is tuned with passive radiator. To maximize sound quality Indigenums have IsoAcoustics® GAIA™ speaker isolators.

Story


I have always been interested in sound systems, especially loudspeakers, and have read through many books and magazines concerning loudspeaker technology and design.

Some ten years ago I came across an article dealing with the problem of a magnetostatic planar speaker being too directive due to the wavelength being shorter than the width of the diaphragm. An idea hit me: could the diaphragm be curved to avoid the problem? I started solving the problem by building my first prototype.

When I got to listen to the sound of the first prototype, I started to understand the enthusiasts of the High End Audio. The sound of the prototype was extremely precise and natural. What I heard was great! I had designed something new. Now I couldn’t stop the product development. Solving the problems of making the curved diaphragm driver and finding the right materials took thousands of hours over the following ten years.

I started as an entrepreneur in 2018. The first model of Hypostatic® loudspeakers, Indigenum, was born around the CMD driver and it is now available on the market.

Reviews

”The sound has unusual spaciousness and airiness”

”Especially live recordings were reproduced amazingly by the Indigenum”

”The bass had a nice firmness with rhythm music and with just enought power and excellent tone repetition”

Matti Hermunen

Hifimaailma 8/18

”Exceptionally spacious and not conventional speaker soundstage”

”Sound is unforced, airy and easy to listen”

”The treble has a light sparkle and separation, but not a bit of stress”

Mikael Nederström

”Until then we had never heard a magnetostat with a curved membrane and thought that contrary to electrostatic speaker, such construction was too difficult to execute. Now we saw that it is possible and for great results”

”Again, this was a room with a sound that tasted like a lot more. We were struck by its ability to project a large soundstage from a modest size”

“What I’ve found in this room puzzled me at first, then caught off-guard and intrigued in the end”

”The outcome was open, airy, smooth and speedy”
