Simple materials

The Ceramic Speakers are made from porcelain, cork, and Baltic birch. Each material is minimally finished, left to add its natural beauty to the design. The included amplifier is made from stainless steel sheet metal, with a cast iron base and paulownia volume slider. Aside from the electronic components, plastic is completely avoided in the system’s construction.

Intense detail

Typical speakers are designed to play even the most compressed or poorly recorded track. They gloss over the details that give high-resolution music its depth. The Ceramic Speakers’ custom-made drivers, porcelain and cork enclosures, and Tripath amplifier reveal every nuance. They will show the difference between lossless and mp3 files, and will unlock vinyl’s richness.

Balanced Bass

The Ceramic Subwoofer extends your system’s frequency response down to 40 Hz. While you will physically feel bass-heavy music, you’ll also notice new richness in vocals and acoustic instruments. The sound is neither boomy nor aggressive, but a balanced completion of the Ceramic Speakers.

How do I connect the Subwoofer to earlier versions (versions 1 and 2) of the Ceramic Speakers?
The Subwoofer is fully compatible with all versions of the Ceramic Speakers. The included RCA to 3.5mm cable is used to connect the Subwoofer to the 3.5mm input on the back of your original amplifier. The new version 3 amplifier connects to the subwoofer using the included RCA to RCA cables.
How do I connect the Ceramic Speaker System to a record player?
Most record players require a phono pre-amp to connect to the Ceramic Speaker System. You would first connect the turntable to the pre-amp’s input, then the pre-amp’s output to the Ceramic Speaker System’s input.
What happens if a part breaks during shipping?
Any part of the system, including ceramic components, that is damaged during shipping or does not work upon arrival will be replaced immediately, free of charge.
Will the Ceramic Speaker System work with international outlets?
The system is compatible with 110v to 240v power mains, which covers every country in the world. The only adapter you will need is the simple, inexpensive type that converts the shape of the US plug to your country’s standard outlet. A voltage converter will not be necessary.
