Domain Omni PX1

Overview

Passive Backpanel
The Domain Omni PX1 is purpose designed for operation with audiophile grade power amplifiers. The audio signal is separated into low and high frequency channels with a precision passive crossover network utilizing the highest quality components including only air-core inductors and polypropylene film capacitors. The PX1 can be bi-amplified if preferred or driven from a single amplifier. The PX1 is a nominal 8 Ohm system up to about 5 KHz with minimum impedance of 2 Ohms load at 20 kHz due to the capacitive load of the electrostatic panels. In music there is very little spectral power above 5-10 kHz and as such, the PX1 is fully compatible with 4-8 Ohm rated amplifiers. The audio step-up transformer delivering the critical audio signal to the electrostatic panel is a balanced-interleaved typology comparable to that used in the world’s finest tube amplifiers.
