ESSENCE OF A BRAND
Since 1983, many moments have marked the history of Sonus faber; the launch of the Olympica Collection 6 years ago is one of them. One of the first lines presented as a complete family of products, but above all, the very first one to feature original drivers, entirely designed in Sonus faber. Olympica Nova is the second generation of the iconic family of 2013, improved in its form and substance, imbued with the timeless values that inspired us in creating the original line. The result is a new Collection that embraces the most advanced technologies that already enhance our most prestigious creations.
The lack of flat and parallel walls improves enclosure performance and maintains the typical asymmetrical Lute shape of first generation Olympica. The asymmetrical shape of the cabinet is an original design concept that allows versatile positioning of the speakers to tune the bass response in any room. Inspired by nature, the lines follow the flow of a circular spiral motion, achieving a more organic cabinet structure. No longer just a functional element added to handle airflow, the reflex duct is now fully integrated into the cabinet, further improving the speed and transparency of sound.
Don’t be fooled by its dimensions, its voice is imbued with an amazing character. Olympica Nova II is the smallest floor stander of the collection,but it has everything needed to satisfy any acoustic requirement.
Just like the cabinet sides, the front baffle and the top are made in the walnut or wengè hand-finished natural wood, set in a solid die-cast aluminum plate. Our designers wished to pay homage to the most representative material of Sonus faber, making it even more of a standard-bearer.
The crossover network implements Paracross Topology™, making the crossover less sensitive to radio-frequency interference, improving transient response and lowering noise floor. The filtering topology features new exclusive Clarity Cap capacitors, customized for Sonus faber.
We have completely redesigned the supports, crafting them from solid aluminum bottom plates with steel spikes, taking inspiration from the Homage Tradition and Reference Collections, to guarantee greater strength and solidity.
The solid piece of extruded aluminum that complete the Stealth Ultraflex™ system, an extremely low-turbulence porting system, is inherited from Homage Tradition models. Favoring the profile of sea waves, the structure facilitates airflow through the duct while controlling its speed and reducing the distortion-causing turbulence.
The natural leather embellishes the Voice of Sonus faber, the brand’s iconic configuration of tweeter and midrange and enriches the aesthetic rings around the woofers. Genuine Italian leather that, as per our brand’s tradition, is applied by hand in the production department in Vicenza.
