通过雄心勃勃的“The Sonus faber”项目在研发创新和非凡技术与功能解决方案钟获得的巨额知识财富将我们带入一个令人兴奋的全新项目。Giuseppe Verdi将扬声器的效果发挥的如同歌剧院一般，能够彻底改变并同时表达出Sonus faber价值的本质。团队用心制造的扬声器，能够揭示Sonus Faber的演进历程并维持其原有精神，同时将“传统”与“技术创新”结合在一起。
“隐形反射”系统来自“The Sonus faber”，是一种创新专利的调谐负载“侧不定期”解读系统。除了允许减少音量尺寸，为低频响应提供更大的范围，大大加强对各种形式失真的封隔，该系统还能够消除杂散风噪声，#存在这一噪声是传统反射系统的典型特征，因此该系统能在本质上有助于正确再现静音
金属与金属铸型观念代表了帮助Sonus faber超越自身的“新材料”。Aida内的上下“阻尼壳”使用令人难以置信的“弓形弹簧”制造，这两个元件使用阿维奥纳尔铝合金大块板整体车削而成，（对于“弓形弹簧”，我们必须还要考虑受控弯曲高级工艺），设计用作振动收集器，因此可有助于出色地获得静音再现。特别为Aida设计了新“Anima Legata”。它包括一个“抗振轴”，#材质为非磁性钢合金，将内部驱动器腔与前部主要放射位置结合在一起。使用测力计装置，为各扬声器进行张力附着摩擦力优化。“Anima Legata”将杂散振动传递至临界点，再此处设置了差频双“调谐质量阻尼器”，这一装置在世界上创新高的摩天大楼以及F1赛车中用于通过“反位相”振动来消散剩余的微结构共振，因此实现了剩余微振动的热能-动能转换。
THE ‘SILENT CASE’
Aida’s case is a complex system that inherits its structural concept directly from “The Sonus faber”. The dual “waved” curvature typical of the shape of the “lyre” creates a geometry that, compared to previous solutions, substantially increases structural strength and guarantees exceptional management of the energy#produced inside the acoustic chambers by the drivers. The complex damping system adopted further removes any possible final resonance: both the internal walls and the outside “wings” have dual curvature in multi-layered cross-veined okoumè plywood and are technically implemented through a decoupling system# consisting of a foil in a viscous-insulating material, thus making use of the “constrained layer damping” technique to the fullest. The “acoustic environment” of each single transducer is then optimised to as close to theoretical perfection as possible: on one hand specific reinforcing structures are strategically#placed within each individual acoustic space and, on the other, each one of these is insulated with different materials, from open cell thermoplastic foam to fibrous materials, similar to the felt used in pianos, selecting the most appropriate material or materials for each specific application.
THE ACOUSTIC CASE
With this simple statement we want to reiterate that the total credibility of music reproduction implies the perfect reproduction of one of its essential components: the space between one note and another, that is to say “silence”. In electro-acoustics by “silence” we mean the removal of all vibrations and spurious sounds#that can contaminate the purity of the musical message. Correct reproduction of silence should be, therefore, the final frontier for a state of the art speaker system. The best way to achieve this objective is to painstakingly focus on the design and development of the acoustic case, implementing tested solutions in order to#eliminate all vibrations and spurious noises that damage the integrity of the sound.
3.5 way, Sound field Shaper Technology, “Zero Vibration Transmission” technology, para-aperiodic vented box “Stealth Reflex System”, staggered low frequency floorstanding loudspeaker system.
“Lyra shape” design, dual side curvature, special cross grained okoumè plywood, used in a double thickness constriction layer damped configuration. Sub–structural ribs are strategically placed for total rejection of spurious vibrations and standing waves control. Two “dampshelves” (from “The” experience), i.e. CNC anodized machined avional “vibration dampers” (on the top and on the bottom of the cabinet) “stiffen” the column structure reducing consistently structural micro-vibrations coming from the cabinet walls and the transducers. The “Anima legata” system is used in an innovative way, encompassing the 3 inner chambers of the front firing drive units. A special steel rod, a high speed mechanical interface, concentrates the remaining micro-vibrations conveying them to the dual multiple “Tuned Mass Dampers”, i.e. two differently tuned special custom devices optimized to erase micro-vibrations, by oscillating in anti-phase. A totally new floating bridge “Bow spring” suspension for vibrational interface has been devised to decouple the enclosure from the floor through the Zero Vibration Transmission technology, a patent pending suspension system, eliminating any acoustic feedback and any vibration propagation to the listening room.
Sonus faber “Arrow Point” DAD (Damped Apex Dome, synthesis of the classic dome and ring transducer) 29 XTR-06. A Sonus faber designed 29 mm moving coil driver, with Sonus faber’s vibration optimized mechanical interface. The ultra dynamic linearity is given by the new Neodymium motor system. Implemented with a natural wood acoustic labyrinth rear chamber, a mechanical anti-resonator designed for this application. To perfectly match the high frequency performance to different listening rooms and different tastes it is possible to adjust the SPL of the tweeter.
Sonus faber M18 XTR-08. A Sonus faber designed 180 mm neodymium magnet system ultra dynamic linearity midrange. CCAW wire is used on a composite former “eddy current free” voice coil. The dynamically linear magnetic field motor incorporates triple Kellog/Goeller rings. A special custom diaphragm is made with a real time air dried non pressed blend of traditional cellulose pulp, kapok, kenaf and other natural fibers, developed according to the most natural sound. To further inhibit any residual cone coloration we are using a transparent viscous surface damping coating. The basket is thoroughly optimized to eliminate any resonance, thanks to a high-tech dual metal (Avional and Gun Metal), CNC machined from solid billets. The combination of the two different materials, Avional and Gunmetal, allows eliminating any mutual resonance. The same way as the tweeter, the midrange is decoupled from the main baffle board and designed synergistically with its optimized “acoustic chamber”. A special coaxial anti-compressor is used, designed to remove cavity resonances and distortions.
Sonus faber W22 XTR-12. A pair of Sonus faber designed 220 mm lightweight “sandwich” cone structure (high-tech syntactic foam core and two external surface skins of coated cellulose pulp) woofers are embebed in an acoustically amorphous “stealth reflex” chamber. Designed to blend perfectly with the special midrange and, at the same time, to have absolute definition in their range: the sandwich structure with outer paper pulp skins has the same sonic character of the midrange cone. A long-throw motor system with a 2” controlled “eddy current” voice coil is implemented for high speed, performance and linearity. Special coaxial anti-compressor are used, designed to remove cavity resonance and distortions.
Sonus faber SW32 XT-08. Sonus faber designed a 320 mm infra woofer, lightweight honeycomb composite sandwich cone structure with Nanocarbon technology for a maximum rigidity and implemented it in an acoustically amorphous “stealth reflex” chamber. The unit features a very powerful long throw motor with a 3” voice coil for ultra dynamic linearity. To perfectly match the low-end performance to different listening rooms it is possible to adapt the SPL of the infra woofer.
