Sonus Faber Amati Speaker
The Amati Generation 5° floorstanding speaker channels the visionary brilliance of Nicolo Amati, the Italian renaissance violin maker who understood the link between artistic form and musical function. New technology delivers balanced sound with stunning detail matching the elegance of the Amati’s exterior design.
Nine layers of natural wood are combined according to the grain and finished with nine coats of beautiful lacquer. Then, multiple steps of sanding and brushing by hand ensure every Sonus faber speaker is a joy to behold. In keeping with the ethos of Homage, Amati Generation 5° marries state-of-the-art sound technology with visual artistry in three stunning finishes: Graphite, Wengè and Red.
Functioning as the exponential section of the duct and thanks to its design, Stealth Ultraflex improves the aerodynamic flow of the air stream emitted by the reflex ducts and is an integral part of the system. The extruded aluminum parts give further structural rigidity to the cabinet and now come in a beautiful deep grey brushed aluminum finish.
The Amati, Serafino and Vox models contain a major new innovation for the collection: InTono. Thanks to the internal cabinet’s special structure, which reduces the acoustic pressure generated within a given frequency range, these new loudspeakers always produce midrange frequencies free of any colouration.
Discovered through computer simulation, the new Phase Plug is another new innovation which optimizes the air movement of the driver to reduce turbulence while guiding soundwaves to reinforce their propagation into a more consistent wave pattern at listening distances. The result is a smoother frequency response with higher levels of clarity both on and off axis.
PHASE COHERENT CROSSOVER
Phase Coherent Crossover is designed to deliver immersive, three-dimensional sound throughout the room. The hand soldered hi-end custom spec capacitors and inductors create sonic clarity while handling high power levels and lowering the noise floor.
A standard soft dome tweeter's apex anti-phase behaviour is responsible for early high-frequency roll-off. The D.A.D. tweeter ensures better high-frequency reproduction by dampening the apex of the silk soft dome tweeter, avoiding anti-phase behaviour.
SOLID STEEL “AMATI G5” SPIKES
The speaker system is mechanically decoupled from the floor by the patented Z.V.T. system (Zero Vibration Transmission). Z.V.T. is an optimized suspension system with alternating metal/elastomer/metal surfaces, which overlap inside the base plate, legs and footer spikes. This system substantially reduces acoustic feedback and the transmission of spurious vibrations into the listening room.
The Amati Generation 5° is equipped with a stunning new midrange driver and woofer. Powerful Neodynium magnets drive voice coil with powerful control and precision in the midrange. The new woofer leverages ultralight CCAW voice coils in a neodymium slug for quick speed and improved power and heat handling.
The spider and surround were redesigned using computer simulations applying the Finite Element Method. This translates to long-lasting detailed sound that won’t muffle or overheat the Amati Generation 5° system.
