Timeless Elegance Meets Exceptional Sound in Waterfall Audio’s New Niagara Xt Loudspeaker Series

Waterfall Audio, founded in 1996, specializes in glass-made speakers for luxury audio visuals. With precision glass cutting and a focus on performance and elegance, the company distributes in over 50 countries.

Waterfall Audio unveiled the Niagara XT series of floorstanding loudspeakers at ISE 2024. These speakers feature a unique fully transparent platinum safety glass enclosure, custom-built mid/bass Atohm drivers with JETSTREAM damping technology, and attention to detail such as hand-stitched Nappa Leather speaker bases and unique glass horn tweeter design in the XT3 model.

The Niagara XT series represents a significant breakthrough in loudspeaker design and performance, offering a blend of haute couture elegance and exceptional sound quality. With meticulous craftsmanship, advanced technology, and customizable options, the series aims to delight integrators, interior designers, and clients seeking both aesthetic sophistication and top-tier audio performance for luxury home cinema, media rooms, and hi-fi projects.

Waterfall Audio unveiled its era-defining Niagara XT series of floorstanding loudspeakers at ISE 2024. Setting a supremely stylish, new landmark for loudspeaker design and performance, the Niagara XT series marry a refined sense of haute couture elegance with an extraordinarily clear, authentic and vibrant sound.

“Niagara XT dramatically moves the needle in terms of what is achievable in contemporary loudspeakers,” says Cedric Aubriot, CEO and Founder of Waterfall Audio. “Using all our expertise in loudspeaker aesthetics, materials and performance, we have created a beautiful new series for luxury home cinema, media room and hi-fi projects that will not only be a striking addition to any interior but will also produce audio of magical precision and quality. Visitors to ISE 2024 were among the privileged few to see and hear this significant breakthrough, one that will delight integrators, interior designers and their clients for many years to come.”

The Niagara XT Series features three brand-new models which 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 aluminium base.

These drivers are equipped with JETSTREAM damping technology, developed in house by Waterfall Audio, to maximise 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, optimised heat dissipation and superb control of the rear wave on the cone.

Waterfall Audio has also scaled new heights in attention to detail, craftsmanship and finesse with the Niagara XT Series. For example, the speaker base is housed in luxurious, 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 / 500w 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 fabulous, pure and expressive way. It comprises 11 mechanical glass parts which 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 / 400w output) and larger XT2 (1169mm x 300mm x 346mm / 500w 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 colours, textures, grains, the wood is individually selected, paired and matched for each speaker.
