  • Hugely Dynamic and Open
  • Option of Diamond Tweeter
  • Brilliantly Holographic
SKU: 178428 Category: Tags: ,


The Compas is physically bigger and substantially heavier than the Indra II weighing in at 72kg each, although please don’t think of these as just a bigger version of an Indra II.

The Compas has additional cabinet deadening and crossover redesign to ensure that its performance is fast, clean and hugely dynamic and will excel at playing back all types of music. It is still an Avalon design through and through, it doesn’t take much of a listen to realise that, the huge holographic soundstage is as captivating to listen to as ever!

They are perfectly phase coherent and as a result the rhythm and timing of the Compas is absolute world class.

The two 9 inch bass drivers mean the Compas can deliver scale, proper bass which is dynamic and fast and extends to a satisfyingly low level; the cabinet has become a little narrower (compared to the ougoing Eidolon) so dispersion is improved and there is less in-room reflection, because of this they are a little easier to set-up in a room as well.

Priced at £40700.00 with a ceramic tweeter, the Compas is available with a Diamond tweeter for £49500 in the standard finishes of Cherry, Walnut and Curly Maple.

The premium finishes of Walnut Burl, Maple Burl and Bird Eye Maple are £45000 for the Ceramic verison and £47200 for the Diamond version.

Please note, with Diamond version of this speaker it isn’t simpoly a case of Avalon swapping the tweeter out. Extensive crossover modification is carried out to the Diamond version so it remains balanced and sounding just right.
