Description

Notable highlights of Virtuoso series includes an advanced Box-in-a-Box system, mini-horn loaded tweeter, an extended frequency midrange driver, a user-adjustable crossover with three listening profiles, and of course self-locking cabinets borrowed from our Vantage flagship speakers. 

Features

A significant highlight of the Virtuoso loudspeaker series is its advanced “Box in a Box” cabinet system, which consists of two boxes - inner shell and outer shell glued together. Originally developed for the Figaro series as partial Box-in-a-Box, the structure of this cabinet has been further improved to enhance the sonic performance of the Virtuoso series. The weakest points of a traditional speaker cabinet are the corner joints since they behave more like hinges, rather than tight joints in a vibrating environment. The “box in a box” approach resolves this issue by combining two cabinets, arranged in an offset pattern. The internal cabinet is fully sealed and outfitted with heavy internal bracing and dampening.  It is then covered with an outer box, which is glued tightly to the internal cabinet. This technique allows the cabinet to achieve 10 times the stiffness of a single layer enclosure. The sonic gains from the stiffer cabinet are enormous. Due to excellent vibrations dampening sound is neutral and ever so authentic.

Adjustable Harmonics Crossover

Virtuoso is equipped with a new type of speaker performance tuning device which encloses three different crossovers in one speaker to choose from. This system does not change SPL of speaker response and should not be mistaken with room/system tuning devices where levels of individual drivers are being changed. In Virtuoso we decided to take a step further and use natural drivers' distortion pattern to manipulate listening experience.

 

As it is known all speaker drivers have more or fewer distortions present across the spectrum which is the natural behaviour of the driver. Each driver's distortion pattern is different which reflects as unique-sounding units - aluminium cone drivers have a metallic/harsh sound or ceramic cone drivers have analytic sound. The same is true for musical instruments. This is what makes two different violins sound tonally different, despite the same note being played. Although in music this phenomenon is called overtones rather than distortions. Technically speaking cause of both overtones and distortions are one and the same. Different overtone patterns create a unique sounding instrument with a richer or leaner, more dramatic or more neutral tone. So is with speakers. By adding more than one driver to the speaker we create a speaker system with a distortion pattern described by crossover points. By manipulating crossover's cut-off frequency and steepness of slopes we create different distortion/overtone patterns where different portions of each driver's distortions/overtones participate in the final system. It is a unique feature which allows us to offer you three different listening experiences without actually changing speaker technical characteristics.

 

AudioSolutions Adjustable Harmonics Crossover has three modes:

1.       Balanced – this mode is a sweet spot with a perfect balance of musical clarity and an immersive soundstage.

2.       Moderate – this mode is ideal for prolonged listening sessions when less dramatic and less detailed sound required.

3.       Enhanced – engaging this mode will allow the listener to experience the finest level of musical details from their recordings.  This mode is especially well suited for quiet evening listening sessions when ambient urban noise is reduced, and micro details in the music come alive. This mode can make the difference between simply listening to music and establishing an emotional connection with your music, prompting you to get up and dance or shed a tear, when listening to your favourite tunes.
