This is a Special Order item.

Due to circumstances relating to this product, it is only available in the UK to special order, which means it is not stocked as standard in our warehouse. A special order item will be placed on order with the relevant manufacturer during our next scheduled Purchase Order. As we forecast orders up to two months ahead of time with some suppliers, this does not mean the item will automatically be included on the next shipment we receive. It also does not mean that the item will immediately be placed on order with the supplier, as we group special orders together for logistical purposes. Therefore, we estimate lead times on most special order items of 8 – 12 weeks.

Callas Series

The new Grand Callas is a three-way floorstanding speaker that replaces the previous model with the same name. Though it shares the same name as its predecessor, it has been completely redesigned from top to bottom; making it more comparable to Opera's previous flagship, the Tebaldi. Where the Tebaldi was large and could be difficult to place, the new Grand Callas has a much smaller footprint and is less-sensitive to placement.

This low-range loaded reflex design uses two 8” long-throw woofers, a 7" annealed polypropylene midrange and a 1" Scanspeak 9700 tweeter. The diffuser is complemented by a rear radiation system that uses two tweeters configured as a natural dipole. These rear-firing drivers increase the ambient sound, giving depth and substance to the musical performance.

Key Features:

  • Floorstanding speaker design in two wood finishes
  • Three-way configuration
  • Mid-range woofer has a polypropylene re-cooked cone and phase plug
  • Scanspeak tweeter handles high power without ferrofluid for greater detail
  • Rear-firing radiation system diffuses sound to improve ambient sound
  • Bi-wirable
  • Finished in high-quality wood and leather
  • Support for spikes or wheels
