Neat Mystique Classic
The Neat Mystique Classic is a high-performance compact audiophile floor-standing loudspeaker, shorter than the Elite Classic at 78cm high, the Mystique is one of the most compact floor-standers on the market.
The bass-mid driver has been carried over from the Motive series, but here it is recessed and the fixings are covered by a trim to bring the cosmetics more into line with the existing Classic models. The tweeter is the same proven AMT unit used in the Petite and Elite.
The Mystique Classic is essentially a scaled-down version of the Elite Classic model, but it delivers far more than might be expected from this seemingly straightforward compact 2-way design.
As In the other Classic range models, an Air Motion Transformer (AMT) tweeter is employed to excellent effect, here it is matched with the 134mm treated paper cone bass/midrange unit from Neat Motive range models.
As always, internal components are chosen with great care to attain ideal matching of the drive units. The crossover network features low tolerance air core inductors and polypropylene capacitors, hard-wired to minimise disruption to the signal path.
The Mystique also features a downward firing port, enabling deep, well-controlled bass frequencies and flexible placement.
The cabinet is mounted above a solid plinth, which offers great stability.
Mystique Classic gives a stunning presentation of scale which suggests a far larger speaker. The compact and elegant cabinet can be placed easily in most domestic situations.
