In the new floorstanding speaker, Audel has further improved the quality of the tweeter, among other things. Compared to the older Malika mk 2, the new model also has a second 140 mm "New Curve Cone" woofer; both are supported by a bass reflex port in the front. The cabinet has been further stiffened using Audel's new patented IRS technology.
Due to its design and modified dispersion pattern, the Malika Plus + also aims to counteract general listening fatigue (TTS Temporary Threshold Shift), especially in the frequency range between 1,000 Hz - 6,000 Hz. This, along with an improved bass foundation and speed, is said to guarantee long and comfortable listening. The new Malika Plus + is also said to have a higher dynamic range of over 92 dB at 4 ohms, making it suitable for use with tube amplifiers.
The new Audel Malika Plus + comes with an MSRP of about €9,000* per pair in the finishes Ebony Black and Canaletto Walnut. The third finish, Bruyère Walnut, has an MSRP of about €10,000* per pair. The front, parts of the back and the base are different for each of the three different finishes.
