发现 EXTREMA

30周年庆超级限量版
Extrema的品牌故事及其DNA.

Sonus Faber在成功推出 Parva、Minima、Electa 及 Electa Amator音响之后,希望进一步凭借其丰富的经验尝试一个艰巨的项目,籍此超越极限并打造新的行业基准。1991年,Extrema荣耀问世,成为了一款独特的扬声器产品。Extrema的起名可归结于其特别的喇叭、突破性的无串联电容6分贝/八度分音器及其专为优化组件性能而设计的音箱和向后发射的被动式扩散器。这些特点让Extrema当之无愧地代表了电动式扬声器的最高发展。同时也正因如此,Extrema有力地挑战了堪称最尖端的电子系统及其完美组合。

Extrema 是Sonus faber历史上最前沿的项目。它是发展的里程碑,是为所有狂热爱好者而生的扬声器,是所有设计的极致表现。最大限度的性能和再现完美声音是其发展的指导因素,这些指导因素被用于外形设计和电声项目。在30年的历史里,Sonus faber 已取得了各项成功,并且在技术研究和材料使用上实现了巨大的成功,并且与此同时始终忠于其DNA和传统。这就是为什么在庆祝其30周年之际,Sonus faber 决定打造最“极致” 的项目,完美遵从其创作的原意,却又整合新的技术发展、电声研究、设计和前沿材料使用。

Features

  • 外形

    扬声器金属线条的外形特意打破了 Sonus faber 产品传统的柔线特征,用还原工艺从刚性材料中提取音量。如同经过雕刻家灵巧双手打磨的大理石,原材料被切割整齐并拥有坚实的表面。Extrema为了性能而生,绝不妥协,动感的线条体现了它的特征与本性。

  • 碳纤维

    碳是一种非常特别的化学元素,是地球所有生物的生存基础。它以各种形态存在于自然界中,从软如石墨的物质到硬如钻石的物质。今天,碳被用于各行各业,从航天到汽车,从医药到运动。Sonus faber 也积极对碳进行实验,将其特性用于为意大利摩德纳的帕加尼公司生产的最新型号超跑的Huayra音响系统上。

  • 箱体

    使用了6种元素的复杂模具来精确打造扬声器框架,使得生产标准极度限量化,为这本已成为大多数狂热收藏者典藏品的扬声器更添独有特性。

  • 木质

    鲁特琴一直是Sonus faber在设计大多数标志性扬声器时的灵感来源:Homage系列之前采用的元素绝非偶然,从 Amati 到 Guarneri 以及 Stradivari,均以鲁特琴历史上最伟大的工匠命名。新Extrema 的侧面着重体现古老艺术气息,与超现代碳纤维箱体紧密结合,侧面采用生长于费耶美山谷的红色紫果冷杉木,是制琴大师的首选上等木材。

  • THE SIDES

    The sound of wood has always been important for Sonus faber. In the case of the Extrema project, the fact that the supporting structure of the loudspeaker is made with a carbon monocoque make it possible to use wood as the pure resounding element, exactly as in the sound board#of string instruments. The choice therefore had to be the resonant spruce from Val di Fiemme, the rare and prestigious essence of which violins are made.

  • BERYLLIUM AND DIAMOND

    Beryllium is an extremely rare and exclusive metal that is used in various high-technology industrial sectors, such as medicine, aerospace and experimental/applied physics. Beryllium also played an important part in the history of audio transducers, used for example in magnetic cartridges.

  • THE HIGH FREQUENCY

    Reproducing high frequencies is entrusted to a 30 mm transducer with mobile coil designed entirely by Sonus faber, implemented with a Sonus faber mechanical interface that optimises vibration management.The "Ultra dynamic linearity", the result of the new Neodymium magnetic system, is optimised#by the dome diaphragm of DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) Beryllium to obtain the maximum resolution possible in acoustic reproduction.

  • THE MEDIUM AND LOW FREQUENCY

    The 180 mm “Ultra dynamic linearity” mid-woofer designed by Sonus faber and equipped with a Neodymium motor, is the driver that reproduces the medium and low frequencies. A pure copper winding 6N is used on a coil support with control of the Lorentz currents. The magnetic motor, very linear and dynamic, has an optimised#layout and a heat dissipator that also acts as a "mass damper". The special diaphragm, which is personalised for Sonus faber, is obtained by means of a sandwich that uses nano-carbon hides and a special syntactic dampening foam to obtain maximum resolution.

  • THE ULTRA LOW FREQUENCY AND ITS MANAGEMENT

    The passive radiator is also fully designed by Sonus faber; the L’E.M.B.A.B.R (Electro Magnetic Brake Auxiliary Bass Radiator), according to Engineer Cadawas, has varied dampening. The flat piston diaphragm is optimised for this application, and is positioned structurally midway between the sandwich structures of the midwoofer#cone and the "monocoque" structure. The basket is fully optimised to eliminate all resonance, thanks to the use of two high technologymetals (Ergal and Gun Metal) that are machined in CNC from the solid piece. The combination of these two metals eliminates any reciprocal resonance.

  • CROSSOVER IN AIR

    The new Extrema uses a precious non-resonant Crossover in air with progressive slope, optimised by module and phase for the best space/time behaviour. The "paracross" topology is combined with best quality components that exalt the sound quality: Mundorf Supreme capacitor and Jantzen inductors. The crossover#frequency is 2350 Hz, and the low frequencies can be dampened in 4 different ways, according to the listening room.
