TECHNOLOGY

Passionate about quality sound reproduction for more than 30 years, we have listened to, compared and experienced all the speaker technologies existing on the market: electrodynamics, high efficiency, electrostatic, ribbons in different forms, flat diaphragm speakers rigid… etc. Each of these technologies have undeniable qualities, but we are convinced that the one that brings together the most advantages and allows music to be reproduced most naturally are isodynamic loudspeakers, also called Magnetostatic.

THE ADVANTAGES OF ISODYNAMIC TECHNOLOGY

  • Diffusion over a large area by plane wave, which allows for immersive listening without sound projection effect.
  • Dipole operation, on both sides of the speakers, to recreate the spatialization of the concert in your listening room.
  • The use of extremely thin mylar membranes (12µm) for high speed and no drag effect.
  • The same type of diaphragm used from bass to treble, everything works at the same speed which provides consistency in dynamic behavior across the spectrum.
  • No box behind the speaker; there is no "box sound" associated with the midrange buzz in the speaker. The timbres of the voices and instruments are perfectly respected.
  • Consistent, balanced and detailed listening even at low levels.
  • A regular impedance which does not represent a complex load on the amplifier.
  • High reliability over time, our speakers are not afraid of dust or humidity, they do not have a high voltage circuit.

EXCLUSIVE DIPTYQUE TECHNOLOGIES

The isodynamic technology well known to music lovers was developed in 1970 in the United States. Through our numerous tests and experiments, we have sought solutions to improve this technology and push back its limits, in particular for bass reproduction.

  • PPBM®: Push Pull Bipolar Magnet is an innovative patented architecture. The large section bipolar magnets, manufactured to specification, are located at the front and rear of the diaphragm. They make it possible to maintain the coil (aluminum tapes) in a constant magnetic field when the membrane moves, which is thus perfectly controlled. The bass is more dynamic and transient sounds are reproduced with precision. Listening to a grand piano is impressively realistic.
  • A Mechanical Sandwich Structure. Composed of the assembly of 3 different materials: MDF frame, fine felt and stamped sheets held in force by a mechanically welded steel frame. This set is perfectly rigid and not reasoning, it is a mechanical reference which guarantees the absence of coloring and the respect of the timbres.
  • Proprietary ribbon tweeters. The ribbon is produced as an isodynamic cell (mylar film and aluminum coil). It moves in an intense magnetic field made from neodymium magnets. These tweeters operate over a wide frequency range and mate perfectly with isodynamic cells. A simple crossover (6 db per octave) allows a perfect fusion of the registers. The highs are soft, precise and spin high to give a sublime soundstage.

Diptyque audio - Discover new sound spaces

 

Diptyque audio is a unique concept of flat speakers, high fidelity, made in France, sources of visual and sound emotions. Close your eyes, the concert is in front of you, each instrument takes its place in a sound stage incomparable by its precision and its amplitude. The voices breathe, we feel the physical presence of the performers. Open your eyes, our speakers are works of art, unique pieces that will fit into the most beautiful architectures.

Gilles DOUZIECH, Eric POIX.

made in france

 

These flat speakers were born from the meeting of two men passionate about acoustics: Gilles Douziech and Eric Poix. From a first prototype made in 2001 as part of an exhibition of contemporary art, they made many experiments, on materials, shapes, components, assembly processes, to develop a high-end speaker in the service of musical emotion. As result of their aesthetic and sound requirements, each Diptyque is an exceptional handcrafted object.

Since his adolescence, Gilles Douziech is passionate about loudspeakers and high fidelity. At 19, during his studies of electronics, he decided to cross France to do an internship with Marcel Rochet, designer of Mulidine speakers. This passionate acoustician gave him fundamental notions about harmonic resonances but also the design of distribution filters. Then he continued his studies with an internship at the acoustic laboratory of the Toulouse university. Without ever ceasing to conceive loudspeakers, he realized for ten years a career in medical electronics in hospital. 

He specializes in ultrasound and trained by the largest companies: Hewlett Packard, Siemens, Philips and General Electric. Then he chose teaching and at the same time created his first ribbon loudspeakers to broadcast his sound creations in the context of contemporary art exhibitions. His meeting with Eric Poix will be crucial to develop the high fidelity Diptyque Audio speakers.

As a lover of high-fidelity for more than 25 years, Eric Poix has never ceased to evolve his listening system, looking for great musicality without giving into fashions and tricks. His skills and know-how in mechanics and ironwork led him to create high fidelity loudspeaker and electronics stands with great acoustic and aesthetic quality. Thanks to him, the Diptyque speakers are endowed with a very sophisticated mechanical structure giving them an extreme rigidity. The tension of the membrane is thus perfectly mastered, an essential point for the acoustic quality of these flat speakers.

« Our loudspeakers are integrally manufactured in our workshops in Montauban (France). Like luthiers, we assemble by hand each element of our models which requires a great thoroughness and a unique know-how to guarantee an irreproachable quality. At the end of the manufacturing process, each loudspeaker is acoustically measured and tested to ensure its musicality. » Gilles Douziech and Eric Poix.

Our social and environmental commitments.

Since the beginning of the diptyque audio project, we are aware of the impact of our production on the environment. We are committed to our speakers, sources of sound pleasure, are part of a virtuous social and environmental approach.

Sustainable and repairable speakers.
Diptyque speakers, 5 years warranties, are made to last and give you a flawless listening pleasure over several decades. We design them so that you can pass them on to your children to take advantage of this unique musicality.
Diptyque speakers will be able to renovate at any time in our workshops.

Local artisan production
Our speakers are fully manufactured in our workshops in Montauban (south west of France). We master the entire production line: the melting by digital control, stamping, welding of metal elements, the manufacture of membranes and circuits. Our partners for thermolating paint and laser cutting of steel parts are local business.

The fight against waste
The best way to limit the impact of our production is to minimize waste.
Dice design Diptyque speakers We reflect on optimizing the use of manufacturing materials. The timber falls from the speaker machining are used to make packaging elements.

emballage dp107

For all other waste related to our production, we have set up rigorous selective sorting to give them a second life in recycling channels.

Selected materials
The choice of materials is a key point for limiting our impact on the environment. We selected :
- Recyclable materials: 65% of our speakers are 100% recyclable steel.
- low impact materials such as the MDF Mediland® wood fibers made from maritime pine (south west of France), classification E1: low formaldehyde content.
- A local origin: 98.5% of the materials come from France or Europe.
- Use of natural products: example Rubio® linen oils (Belgium) for treatment and dyeing of wooden parts.

Masse dp77

Strong involvement in teaching young people
Every year, we receive several trainees and students in our company. We participate in pedagogical projects in collaboration with schools and universities. We teach at the ISPRA (Audiovisual Bachelor in Toulouse) to transmit our passion for electroacoustic and the diffusion of high quality sound.

A constant improvement.
We are committed to improving our effectiveness. We still have some axes of progress that we work to minimize the impact of our environmental manufacturing. Our priorities: packaging and shipping the speakers. We regularly update this page to report on our progress.
