Bringing “Haute Horology” watchmaking techniques and Formula One materials to Hi End Audio, Kostas Metaxas 40 years artistry in the state-of-the-art is embodied in his latest audio sculpture – “a perfect marriage of the arts of engineering [electrical and mechanical] and the fine arts of sculptural form”.Ikarus_SCOOP.814

The IKARUS 2015 is machined from a solid block of either aircraft aluminium, copper or titanium. It’s totally bespoke and the modular electronics make it future-proof, says the company’s press release. The circuit boards can be CNC machined from 1mm solid silver coated clear polystyrene.Ikarus_SCOOP2biggervu.810

The new range is inspired by the breathtaking work of Ercole Spada and Pininfarina on racing cars of the 50’s and 60’s.

“It has taken little time for Australian firm MAS to receive worldwide attention. In France, the range of MAS Electronics has seduced us… Metaxas products belong to this rare category of electronics which achieve the essential and vital qualities of a good Hi Fi system which drive you to irresistibly listen and enjoy records one after the other”.Ikarus_SCOOP2biggervu.816

100% designed and engineered by Kostas Metaxas, each IKARUS is assembled by his sons – either Andreas or Alessandros Metaxas.

The familial passion in the fine and applied arts is inspired by the BUGATTI family.
