Twenty years have passed since Sonus faber had the intuition that changed the world of high fidelity. Forty years have passed since Sonus faber went from being the dream of a visionary to becoming one of the most important realities in the world of crafting musical jewels.
In 2003, Sonus faber paid tribute to Antonio Stradivari, the most recognized name in Cremonese violin making, with the introduction of the Stradivari speaker. Stradivari changed the way we perceive high fidelity, providing a new unit of measurement for sensory perception. Today, it makes a come back!
The design and composition of the Stradivari second generation pays homage to the traditional craftsmanship of Sonus faber products. The transformation from an elliptical to a pentagonal shape showcases how technological adaptation seamlessly follows aesthetic needs.
THE CLEPSYDRA TECHNOLOGY
The reflex system used in Stradivari combines a new hourglass geometry, aimed at maximizing the low frequency descent performance and at the same time containing the length of the duct, together with a downfiring emission which guarantees maximum freedom of positioning in the room. The non-parallel walls within the acoustic chamber of the woofers prevent the formation of standing waves above the tuned frequencies.
Designed to be light, fast and highly sensitive, to offer brilliance and definition of all the nuances of the high frequencies. The Stradivari midrange finds its natural continuation towards the extreme bass working in total timbre and level harmony with the two underlying woofers!
The patented technology for managing the oscillations of the silk dome of the tweeter rediscovers the tripod structure with Stradivari. Greater high frequency dispersion and control even at higher volumes.
The new dual gap woofer designed by the Sonus faber team for Stradivari is made to guarantee symmetry of the motor force and minimize the distortions intrinsic to a conventional magnetic circuit design. Equipped with a paper pulp sandwich cone and a surround designed for perfect balance with the needs of the motor action, this woofer has a fast and clean impulse response.
