The NOLA Micro Grand Reference Series II is a stand-mounted loudspeaker that utilizes the same driver technology and concept as the floor standing Baby Grand Reference and Metro Grand Reference loudspeakers. Driver complement consists of two magnesium woofers, one Alnico magnet open baffle midrange, and one open baffle true ribbon tweeter in a 3½ way UnisonTM crossover design. The UnisonTM crossover topology, new with the Series II, provides an even more coherent, immediate, and dynamic response from the drivers. Uncharacteristically, the increase in resolution is accompanied by an even more musical presentation. The driver array utilizes our 45-degree mirror-imaged concept for midrange and tweeter. The twin 120mm cast-frame magnesium woofers operate in an optimum rear vented enclosure. The vent is an oversized, double-flared design that eliminates port noise. The 110mm cast-frame tri-laminate cone midrange uses an Alnico magnet and operates as an open baffle dipole to eliminate enclosure coloration. The open baffle true ribbon tweeter eliminates any kind of diaphragm, as the ribbon is the diaphragm. The moving mass of this design is about 25 times less than any known dome tweeter. The result is effortless detail without hardness. The lack of enclosure in the middle and high frequencies eliminates a large source of coloration.

The 3½ way UnisonTM crossover is implemented on three internal crossover boards for maximum quality. It employs only top quality audiophile grade components throughout, including 630-volt close tolerance polypropylene capacitors and flat wound pure copper coils. Wiring is with Nordost mono-filament silver wire. The crossover boards are hard wired (no printed circuits) for maximum quality.

The Micro Grand Reference Series II utilizes a built-in double platform base with custom ball bearing isolators to further reduce coloration due to floor-borne vibration. The bases are finished in true piano black finish. The Micro Grand Reference Series II brings stand mounted speaker performance to a new level. A dedicated stand is available which provides optimum sound quality.
