Cube Audio Nenuphar
The Nenuphar has been updated to version 2. You can expect it now to be have even more bass, higher top end extension with slight reduction of upper mid-range at the same time.
Cube Audio Nenuphar is a single driver loudspeaker based on Cube Audio F10 Neo drivers. State of art fullrange drivers combined with very effective TQWT enclosure results in real extraordinary experience. Modern, elegant design and high-quality black or white piano finish make the loudspeaker a beautiful addition to every style of interior. All drivers and loudspeakers are handmade in Poland. Pursuing the highest quality and longevity, the manufacturing process involves both artisan craftsmanship and modern precise computer-controlled CNC machines.
The Nenuphars are dedicated for rooms of 20 - 40 square meters. They are a perfect match for a tube amp with at least 3 Watts per channel. Our personal preference is somewhere around 2A3, Px4, 45 tube-based amps. Nonetheless, most solid-state amps (especially those working in A-class) are also an amazing match for the Nenuphars. When it comes to placement, they can be placed both forward and placed right against the back wall. They like about 5-10 degrees of toe-in.

Reviews & Awards
The cult movie Highlander introduced the notion of a late-time Quickening. Then there could only be one immortal man (don't ask). In our niche or perhaps cult genre of the unassisted widebander sans tweeter/woofer helpers, Nenuphar is that one at the end when all other contenders to the throne have been decapitated.
The Cube Audio Nenuphar, to me, so far is my reference loudspeaker. Cutting edge product, that might be one of the breakthrough loudspeakers of the last 25 years.. And it's a 10 inch single driver.
Technical details on the drivers used in this loudspeaker can be found here.
All of Cube Audio fullrange drivers gain huge benefits from many innovative technologies and solutions used in those speakers. The proof is not only in the sound but can be easily noticed in measurements of both speakers. Frequency response is outstanding not only on the "on-axis" measurement. The results are unprecedented.
