CORINA - A NEW STANDARD
Several years ago Dan Clark Audio entered the Electrostatic headphone market with the release of VOCE. Since its introduction, VOCE has won numerous awards for "Product of the Year" and "Best Headphone" from preeminent publications as Positive Feedback, Absolute Sound, Headphonics, and Headphone Guru.
Dan Clark Audio strives to continuously advance the performance of their products, and DCA is excited to release the CORINA Reference Electrostatic Headphone.
With the new CORINA Reference Electrostatic headphone, Dan Clark Audio combines electrostatic musicality with fun, rich sound and low-frequency performance that you would expect from high end planar magnetic models.
Acoustic Metamaterial Tuning System (AMTS)
CORINA is Dan Clark Audio's first electrostatic headphnoe to incorporate the latest version of their industry-leading Advanced Metamaterial Tuning System (AMTS), first introduced with their groundbreaking Stealth and Expanse headphones.
AMTS is Dan Clark Audio’s patent-pending inline device located between the transducer and ear. AMTS integrates waveguides, diffusion control, quarter-wave, and Helmholtz resonators into one compact structure to eliminate standing waves, dramatically improving system performance. .
With AMTS, frequency response is significantly smoother throughout the midrange and high frequencies, free of annoying “peaks and holes” for a smoother, more complete, accurate, and enjoyable listening experience.
AMTS allows DCA to re-imagine the voicing of CORINA to deliver the most natural midrange heard in an electrostatic to date. From powerful bass to the incredibly rich and well balanced mids and highs, CORINA delivers an incredibly smooth and lifelike experience, full of electrostatic resolution yet free from the high-frequency emphais / glare common to many electrostatic headphones.
An Exciting New Sound
By reducing the emphasis on higher frequencies typical of many electrostatics headphones, VOCE delivered a new take on the electrostatic headphone could sound. With a wider and deeper soundstage, a stronger bottom end and a smoother, richer midrange, CORINA delivers a fun yet lifelike tone, with sumptuous vocals, and bass that really kicks. Unlike many electrostatics, CORINA is even fun with electronica and rock.
New Industrial Design for Incredible Comfort
Dan Clark Audio has always taken pride in their industrial design innovations and CORINA is no exception. With a striking grey finish and elegantly sculpted grill, CORINA is nothing short of stunning.
CORINA utilizes the new self-tensioning headband design from DCA's flagship Stealth and Expanse headphones, for an incredibly comfortable yet hassle-free fit.
New ear pads have been developed with enhanced ergonomics, including a synthetic suede surface for the face contact, avoiding sweat and “hot spots” common to headphones.
With the new ear pads and using DCA's signature titanium alloy headband design, CORINA is incredibly comfortable to wear.
Meticulous Driver and Earpad Matching
In order to ensure the highest consistency between units, Corina’s 88mm driver is made with a new tensioning system which increases diaphragm tension and uniformity of tension for more consistent, better matched drivers. These drivers are then carefully matched to ensure excellent soundstage and imaging.
While drivers can be precision matched, earpads, which involve welding or stitching fabrics and use of foams, have always limited the actual tolerances of the headphone. All Corina new and replacement ear pads are delivered as matched pairs to further tighten the tolerances between the left and right channels and reduce unit to unit variances.
