Audio Physic :: no loss of fine detail
Avantera plus ambient

 

After a very positive public response to the launch of the VIRGO 25plus+ at the HIGH END 2012 show in Munich and fantastic international test reports, it is a logical consequence to apply the innovations and learning curves from the VIRGO 25plus+ to additional REFERENCE models. Yet this involves much more than simply "transferring" new technologies onto another loudspeaker. The design innovations in the AVANTERAplus+ are, for example, to be painstakingly matched to the crossover network, the drivers, and the cabinet – and represent once again the result of intensive detail work, comprehensive listening tests and the passion of the AUDIO PHYSIC development team to reproduce music as authentically as possible – true to the principle, "No loss of fine detail".

Characteristics

AVANTERA cross section 1. Ceramic foam in the woofer chamber = more control, more precision and more bass
2. Special acoustic panels and optimised damping in the midrange driver chamber = much higher resolution, better spatial imaging and increased homogeneity
3. WBT silver terminals and vibration optimised contacts in the tweeter = much higher resolution, better spatial imaging and increased homogeneity
4. Special customized Clarity Cap capacitors in the mid and lower-mid crossover section = more detail and resolution
5. An aluminium front with a black or white high gloss finish and colour-coordinated front and side panels

 

Our listening tip

Paul Kuhn | The LA Sessions | In Akustik

Paul Kuhn | L.A. Sessions | In-Akustik

Hi-hats and the grand piano crisply open the L.A. Sessions and from the downbeat onward demand the utmost in resolution from any loudspeaker. Even the slightest imperfections can slow down the flow of this exceptional album. The recording is top-shelf, not least owing to the sound engineer Al Schmitt, who also worked for Henry Mancini and has already taken home seven Grammys for his works. L.A. Sessions, comprising Paul Kuhn (piano, vocals), John Clayton (bass) and Jeff Hamilton (drums) was an encounter of three musical legends and a celebration of jazz at its finest. The spatial imaging, sharpness of detail and natural quality of this "session" border on a religious experience when heard via AVANTERAplus+.

 

Pothead | Jackpot | JANITOR

Pothead | Jackpot | JANITOR

Rock, dry, defiant, fast – even on their twelfth studio album, Pothead offer music for men. And yet "Jackpot" distinguishes itself from its predecessors. Throughout, "Jackpot" has a frenetic, even electrifying pace. These musicians, who have made Berlin their new home, put on a show of strong riffs and thundering drums – the listener immediately vibrates to the music. The fun begins to crescendo to great delight when the loudspeakers accurately follow the driving, dark waves of bass and never lose definition amid the dense sound texture. An album that becomes more mesmerising with each additional quantum of resolution.

Ambient Screen

It's really the minute details that make the task a challenge. In attempting to improve a recognised first-class product, AUDIO PHYSIC looks at all the elements that come together in a loudspeaker. Thus AUDIO PHYSIC managed to develop loudspeakers that do not display a cosy (wooden) cabinet sound and, conversely, as a result, once again brought the performance of the drivers and crossover technology to the fore. This laid the groundwork for the worldwide unique HHC midrange driver and tweeter that are already successfully deployed in AVANTERA and other AUDIO PHYSIC loudspeakers.

In taking another decisive step forward, our developer team made an unbiased assessment of all the elements of the loudspeaker and in particular, how they interact, paying special attention to the individual cabinet areas of the speaker. The requirements and operating conditions vary considerably in the individual frequency ranges. AUDIO PHYSIC counters the negative ramifications of bass impulses having an effect on the cabinet with a mirror-image configuration of woofers in the standard loudspeakers of the REFERENCE line. The energy impact on the cabinet is virtually negated by this arrangement, and what's more, the extremely stiff design of the cabinet dissipates excess energy before it can negatively influence the sound. In the AVANTERAplus+, there is added reinforcement in the areas surrounding the woofers using an ultra-stiff ceramic foam (in the cross-sectional view, Item 1). This enables impulses to be dispersed even more rapidly. Thanks to the porous structure of the ceramic foam, the inner volume does not change – and the loudspeakers are not growing heavier, despite significantly improved cabinet properties.

When playing the middle frequencies, the key focus was to avoid sound permeability at the midpoint. The percentage of sound deflected into the interior in each loudspeaker to a certain extent finds its way out through the cabinet walls. The results is discolouration. In the AVANTERAplus+, the midrange drivers work not only on an autonomous cabinet section. In the Plus version, dampening panels specially-developed for the AVANTERA chassis (cross-sectional view, Item 2) are fitted on the interior of the cabinet in this area. They are less stiff than the exterior walls, thereby creating a heterogeneous structure that has a significant dampening effect on sound permeability. Thanks to the special structure of the panels, parts of the reflected sound are not "mirrored" in a defined angle on the walls, thus further reducing the influence of sound inside the cabinet. The interplay with the even higher-quality components of the crossover network (cross-sectional view, Item 4) leads to a dramatic gain in acoustics.

Even the HHC tweeter benefits from the new development. A new type of link is used in the signal connector (cross-sectional view, Item 3) at the interface between the crossover network and driver, which is effective in suppressing the micro-vibrations that could influence the sensitive signals. This results in exceptional resolution and an even more realistic illumination of the acoustic space.

It is the tireless questioning of conventional wisdom and the intensive analysis of the physical conditions that allow the AVANTERAplus+ to reach a level of sound reproduction that just a few years ago would have been inconceivable in this class.
