The Ovation is a compact, two-way monitor designed for outstanding imaging and wide dynamic range. With technologically advanced drivers, solid enclosure construction, and exquisite cabinet finish, the Ovation represents one of the best values in high-end loudspeakers today.

A hallmark of all Nova designs is harmonically rich and transparent presentation of musical information - even at high sound pressure levels. The Ovation delivers every music performance with a sense of effortless ease, conquering the dynamic restrictions so often noted in speakers of similar small size. To do this, Nova employs high performance drivers derived from those in its flagship Evolution Reference Loudspeaker. The 7" low-mid frequency driver uses a composite cone impregnated with carbon-fiber - a material selected for its low mass and high stiffness. A low distortion magnet system and an acoustically dead die-cast magnesium chassis contribute to the overall musical accuracy.

Likewise, the Ovation delivers high frequencies which are clean, natural and free from grain thanks to the wide bandwidth, long excursion soft dome tweeter. Dual acoustical chambers behind the 1 dome and a rigid machined aluminum front plate control unwanted resonance for smooth, flat frequency response.
