A beauty that seduces with natural shapes because they stem from precise acoustic needs, not merely decoration.
Elegance And Precision
Aida, that takes its name from the most grandiose Opera by Giuseppe Verdi, is the pinnacle of the Sonus faber catalogue born from the heart of the team and combines tradition with technological innovation, sophistication with power.
A Unique Project
This “3 and 2/3 way” loudspeaker system features the patented “Stealth UltraflexTM”, for a better bass extension, the “Anima Legata” system and the “Tuned Mass Dampers”, for maximum elimination of inner spurious vibration, the patented “Zero Vibration Transmission”, for saving the listening environment from the spread of vibration and for a better performance of the infrawoofer, and the “Sound Field Shaping” technology, for a new dimensionality of sound and perceived size of the sound-stage.
Don't let the familiar face fool you: Aida maintains its typical design elements that made it so recognizable but has been completely overhauled, embracing the most advanced electroacoustic developments.
The dual "waved" curvature increases structural strength and guarantees exceptional managment of the inner energy produced by the drivers.
This rear facing mid and high loudspeaker system is developed to make the music reproduction as natural as possible and precisely control the dimensionality and perceived size of the sound-stage. The listener will be able to optimize the Sound Field Shaper according to personal taste and listening room characteristics. Mid and high frequencies that make the "Voice Of Sonus Faber" are here determined by a 28mm silk dome tweeter with "Arrow Point" DAD (Damped Apex Dome), implemented with a natural wood acoustic labyrinth rear chamber, and a midrange M18XTR-04 with cellulose pulp cone and Neodymium motor system. This iconic configuration of tweeter and midrange maintain the effortless, warm and involving timber that has become our trademark.
The TMD (Tuned Mass Damper) is a device normally used in the world’s biggest skyscrapers and consists in some suspended masses placed inside of the speakers; while vibrating in antiphase, the TMD erases main vibrations and allows a clearer bass reproduction and a better silence reproduction. This patented system allows a great reduction of the THD (Total Harmonic Distortion) and a better bass extension while eliminating spurious vibration coming from the air passage inside the reflex duct and allowing a reduction of dimensions of acoustic chambers.
The most radical among the new changes of Aida is the selection of all-new driver systems, all of them featuring a Neodymium motor system that the "Ultra dynamic linearity" characteristic.
The purpose of this technology is decoupling the loudspeaker system from the ground, avoiding spurious vibration to spread in the listening environment. Springs and elastomers are placed on the base; their decoupling compliance is carefully calculated in reason of the weight of the speaker and allows a more powerful performance of the down firing infrawoofer and a perfect tuning of the entire loudspeaker system.
