Davis Acoustics Nikita Bookshelf Speaker

Hailing from the Champagne region of France, Davis Acoustics has been making speakers for over 30 years. The company produces OEM drive units that they sell to other manufacturers (including Goldmund and Avant Garde), but also sells their own extensive line of products.

Davis Acoustic's Oliver Visan explained that the speakers and everything in them is created in France including hand-made crossovers and all drivers. The model shown above is the top-of-the-line bookshelf model called the Nikita and will sell for around $7,000-8,000 for a pair.

The Nikita features an 8" kevlar cone with a an alnico magnet driver and soft dome tweeter. Price includes the stands and it should be hitting the market around the middle of March.
