Alyssa

Alyssa is Alta Audio’s new compact loudspeaker that combines compact dimensions with intimate detail and deep, natural bass response, for sonic output that is typically associated with significantly larger floor-standing speakers. 

Standing only 14.5” H x 9.6” W x 14.25” D, Alyssa was developed out of a company mission to design a compact speaker with the sonic attributes of a full-size, high fidelity floor-standing speaker.   

Designed to bring out the best in any musical genre, Alyssa exposes every detail of a recording, from the subtlety of a solo acoustic performance to high-volume Jazz, Rock, and Hip-Hop, with room-shaking bass that remains pure and clean.


Description

Representing over 30 years of designing and building audiophile-grade speakers, Alta Audio products consistently provide exceptional reproduction of live and in-studio recordings. Alta Audio loudspeakers are painstakingly refined to reproduce the realism, balance and dimensionality of both live and studio recordings, with a design aesthetic that enhances any room’s décor.

Alta Audio Founder and President, Michael Levy helped bring CD, DVD, HDTV and Surround Sound technologies to market. Alta Audio was born out of Mr. Levy’s regular meetings with close friends who happen to be among the most respected producers, DJs and journalists covering high-end audio. As a group, it was common to bemoan the lack of an audiophile-grade speaker that conveyed the sense of sitting 10th  row center in an acoustically sound concert hall, or dead center in an old school jazz club.

Mr. Levy committed himself to designing a speaker that replicates the performing artist’s vision. To do so, he and his friends spent countless nights at some of New York City’s finest performance spaces, enjoying music but also paying close attention to the voicing of live music. Afterwards, they compared notes that ultimately led to an intentionally limited series of loudspeakers that—when coupled with comparable electronics and well-recorded music—conveys the full sonic and emotional experience of a live performance.

Alyssa features a ribbon tweeter that creates a 3D soundstage to expose the most minute details of a well-recorded piece of music. Combined with Alta Audio’s proprietary midrange/woofer with a titanium former (bobbin), the result is smoother dynamics, exceptional power handling, and overall improved frequency response.

The fourth generation, high resolution, pure aluminum tweeter is responsible for the speaker’s exceptional clarity and dynamics —immediately noticeable for being precise and fast, with a flat high-end response that extends over an octave above the scope of human hearing.

Alta’s 6” woofer includes a 3.1” diameter long-throw voice coil that employs a high-powered motor for smoother airflow that blends seamlessly with the ribbon tweeter, resulting in a standard-setting bass response.

The benefit of using titanium in the construction of a woofer is that it adds stiffness and is exceptionally light, allowing for a larger voice coil that ultimately contributes to a demonstrable improvement in sonics, especially when listening to analog and high-resolution digital recordings.

Alta’s proprietary XTL* Bass (patent pending) tuning system relies on specialized sonic geometry to tune Alyssa’s cabinets like fine musical instruments, for bass response that is clear, fast, deep, and powerful. To ensure the cabinet is free of resonances that cloud and distort music, Alta Audio’s exclusive DampHard multi-layered, multi-density material extends the clarity of the bass while maintaining the overall dimensionality of the music.
