RMAF 2019 Show Report -- Rocky Mountain International Audio Fest 2019

RMAF 2019 Show Report Sneak Peek!

Sonus Faber Olympica Nova Speaker Collection

 

  Sonus faber is proud to announce the launch of their new Olympica Nova speaker collection at the 16th Annual Rocky Mountain International Audio Fest (RMAF) this weekend. Their reinvention of the Olympica Nova collection is the latest step in Sonus faber's evolution, and a new set of offerings that truly embody the brand's stylistic manifesto. From new drivers and crossovers to new cabinet structure and internal volume tuning, other details include a new exterior look. Of the seven models in the collection, three are all-new to the Olympica Nova line, including an on-wall model, a third and more powerful floor-stander, and a larger center channel. The front baffle is comprised of hand-finished natural wood, enhancing the entire Italian made enclosure. Genuine leather is applied to Voice of Sonus faber and around the woofers. As per Sonus faber tradition, the leather is applied by hand within the brand's Vicenza production facility.

Sonus faber's tweeter features the DAD technology (Damped Apex Dome) on a 28mm silk dome diaphragm and a magnetic motor system that integrates a Neodymium Cap Design. The arch and the ring has been redesigned and obtained from a solid piece of aluminum die-cast. Midrange and mid-woofer transducers are derived from those used in the company's Homage Tradition collection with evolutionary improvements. Air-dried, non-pressed blend of cellulose pulp and other natural fibers Kapok / Kenaf gives the cone a slightly rough surface of varying density. This aims to reduce undesirable resonances to achieve a natural sound with increased transparency and detail.

Other driver design details include their moving coil made with CCAW (Copper Clad Aluminum Winding). A special copper alloy reduces moving mass and improves dynamics and power handling. The center driver phase plug is made of aluminum with a copper ring, helping to eliminate intermodulation distortion and enhance micro-dynamics. For deep bass, Sonus faber's woofer features a cone that benefits from an exclusive sandwich construction technique where two sheets of cellulose pulp encasing a hi-tech syntactic foam. This low-mass, high-rigidity structure provides fast and powerful sound reproduction while allowing total coherence with the mid-high units.
