Neat Acoustics Ekstra
What we Say:
The new Ekstra from Neat Acoustics is now available from DNA Audio, Otley, Leeds.
The Ekstra’s are the culmination of recent technological advances made by Neat. They adopt the 2.5 way isobaric reflex bass system previously pioneered in the Iota range. They also feature a 50mm ribbon-type tweeter for fantastic treble response.
The Isobaric arrangement, with two 134mm bass drivers, means that the speaker can reach into the lower-end of the frequency range. The second driver is effectively acting as a sub-woofer.
Ekstra is a sophisticated speaker, that also looks the part with its elegant lines. Whilst it is a powerful speaker, its size is far from over-bearing, as is the Neat trademark. This also means it is flexible when it comes to placement in a room.
Since its launch, Ekstra has been widely lauded by the press. Here is a recent review from the expert reviewer Alan Sircom https://www.hifiplus.com/articles/neat-acoustics-ekstra-floorstanding-loudspeakers/. You can also read more about the speaker on Neat’s own website https://neatacoustics.com/ekstra/.

Ekstra offers something really different to the rest of the range of speakers at DNA Audio. A compact, elegant floorstander at a mid price point that offers an truly engaging listen.Enquire about the Neat Acoustics Ekstra >

What they say:
Iso-baric loading allows deep, well controlled LF performance from a compact enclosure. This system takes great skill to execute correctly, and the very successful implementation in several of our other models means that we can approach this new design with confidence.
The EKSTRA is very slim, at 17cm wide, and 110cm tall. The footprint is exceptionally small, so it can be positioned in very tight situations if required.
Combining these elements ensures that the EKSTRA delivers a compelling portrayal of all types of music. Like many Neat models, it delivers a full-bodied and agile presentation with a huge soundstage, which projects far beyond the modest confines of the cabinet.
