The Cantata speaker system seamlessly with the sophisticated Gryphon Q controller. This controller allows for precise adjustment of the speaker system's Q to harmonize with the room's acoustics. Tailored for versatility, the Q controller offers various options suitable for rooms ranging from small to mid-sized, featuring both single-ended and balanced connections. 

The Cantata's bass drivers, arranged symmetrically above and below the tweeter in a vertical array, are strategically angled towards an imaginary centerline emanating from the central direct-firing tweeter on the front baffle. Maintaining a consistent vertical axis, the drivers ensure an equal distance from the center of each driver to the listener's ear. The careful angling of the bass drivers necessitates a smooth baffle devoid of any protruding edges that could cause diffraction—undesirable edge reflections lead to smearing in the time domain.

To facilitate a seamless transition between the Cantata tweeter and the bass drivers, a precision-machined 1 kg block of aircraft-grade aluminum houses the tweeter, ensuring ideal time alignment with the other drivers. In the construction process, the use of Nappa and Grand Piano felt is employed to minimize diffraction. To achieve exceptional structural integrity and substantial internal damping, the Cantata employs a combination of extensive internal bracing, bitumen damping, and proprietary manufacturing methods.

The oil-cooled tweeter in the Cantata utilizes a textile dome and is encased in an integrated 1 kg baffle, precision CNC-machined from a solid aluminum billet to a specific shape determined through extensive experimentation with clay and plaster models. To ensure a seamless connection between the dome and the baffle, a specially designed stainless steel surround was created. Additionally, a small removable steel bar serves as mechanical protection for the semi-soft dome.
