Waterfall Audio Launches Niagara XT Transparent Loudspeakers

Contained within a fully transparent platinum safety glass, the speakers subtly reflect and refract sunbeams throughout the day.

Waterfall Audio unveiled its Niagara XT series of floorstanding loudspeakers at ISE 2024. The Niagara XT Series features three brand-new models that all deliver a richly detailed, open and natural-sounding, powerful audio experience. Contained within a unique fully transparent platinum safety glass enclosure (XT2 and XT3: 10mm thick; XT1: 6mm thick), the Niagara XT Series comes alive in natural light, subtly reflecting and refracting sunbeams throughout the day. Custom built mid/bass Atohm drivers appear as if they are suspended in mid-air and are under-pinned by an ultra-low frequency 21cm passive driver in a down-firing position in the solid, CNC cut, brushed tapered aluminum base.

These drivers are equipped with JETSTREAM damping technology, developed in house by Waterfall Audio, to maximize performance and ensure the mechanical decoupling of the mid-bass driver from the glass structure. JETSTREAM allows for a deeper and faster bass with a smoother response in the mid and high range, optimized heat dissipation, and control of the rear wave on the cone.

The speaker base is housed in hand-stitched Nappa Leather, renowned for its smooth grain, softness, and durability. Nappa leather is the interior fabric of choice for premium automotive brands, including Mercedes and Porsche.

The top of the range Niagara XT3 (1200mm x 300mm x 320mm/500-watt output) is the ultimate choice for a clean, luxurious aesthetic with its unique glass horn tweeter design. Mechanically decoupled from the main speaker body, this tweeter reproduces medium-high frequencies in a pure and expressive way. It comprises 11 mechanical glass parts that are precision engineered and then hand-assembled using the same techniques as those employed in luxury jewellery factories.

The Niagara XT1 and XT2 each feature a signature wood horn tweeter. The XT1 (991mm height x 250mm width x 281mm depth / 400-watt output) and larger XT2 (1169mm x 300mm x 346mm/500-watt output) are available in a Classic version with an oiled beech wood tweeter finish. An Exclusive option is proposed with alternative wood finishes, such as walnut, to suit the particular interior tastes of the client. Offering an infinite variety of colors, textures, grains, the wood is individually selected, paired and matched for each speaker.
