Canada's Reference 3A showed the latest version of their popular Dulcet loudspeaker: the Dulcet Be. The Be stands for beryllium, which is the material the tweeter dome is made of. What was surprising was when company president Tash Goka told us that they make the entire tweeter from scratch (the beryllium-dome tweeters used in most speakers are sourced from driver maker Scan-Speak). The Dulcet Be sells for $1990 per pair and comes in an attractive NEXTEL finish, which has a suede-like feel.
