TAD, Technical Audio Devices, introduces model PT-R9 Super High-Frequency Ribbon Tweeter designed to support today's rigid demands for DVD Audio sound reproduction in both the Professional Studio Application and Home Theater sound environments. TAD, known for innovative speaker design, saw the need to develop delivery systems to support new innovations in DVD 96kHz Audio technology. Model PT-R9 is designed to meet this need. Featured in this new Wide-range Tweeter is a Super-Light Beryllium Vibration Board for excellent range of audio reproduction from 5 K to 120 kHz. Also featured is our newly developed, Full-Surface Drive technology which is made possible by the use of advanced Alnico 750 magnet, with its high-precision magnetic structure.

Dependability is ensured by the tremendous care and precision which goes into the manufacture of all TAD products. The PT-R9 is assembled using only selected parts and materials under strictly controlled conditions. All products are tested by experienced engineers utilizing the latest in computerized evaluation techniques. Whatever your audio needs, you can depend on TAD for unequaled performance and reliability.

The PT-R9 is a super high-frequency Ribbon Tweeter style loudspeaker designed for a wide frequency range and high input power. This makes the driver especially suitable for monitoring digital sound.
