Magico MRACK

VIBRATION-DISSIPATION AUDIO EQUIPMENT RACKS AND PLATFORMS
Magico LLC is pleased to introduce the MRACK audio equipment stand. Over the past fifteen years countless amplifiers, DACs, servers, transports, turntables and cables have made their way in and out of the Magico listening room as we have prototyped and brought to market over two dozen speaker models. The cornerstones that have remained throughout it all are the Magico MRACK equipment stands. The MRACK was originally designed for our own internal R&D to maximize system performance where available options consistently fell short. Employing the culmination of knowledge accrued in resonance control and energy dissipation through the development of the ‘Q’ and ‘M’ speaker platforms as well as the POD products; the most acoustically resolving and structurally inert audio equipment stand, the new MRACK, for the first time is available to the public.

The MRACK is available in 3 and 4 shelf variants and finished in a beautiful and durable brushed black anodize. The middle shelves are factory adjustable to optimize each rack to your own equipment complement and are coupled to the floor with the renowned Magico MPOD for the ultimate in top to bottom vibration management. Each shelf weighs 80lbs. and is formed with five layers of constrained-layer-damped aluminum, copper and ISODAMP elastomer designed to channel energy away from your front-end equipment, while capturing and dissipating that energy into heat. The side struts that comprise the structure of the MRACK utilize the same CLD layered architecture to further control the resonance of your system and the surrounding environment. The results in improved resolution, imaging and soundstage will truly allow you to hear things you never have before.

The racks will utilize a copper grounding rod, which will allow one to ground individual front-end components as well as the shelves themselves to funnel noise from the electronics and the under skeleton of the rack resulting in even higher resolution and clarity from the whole system. The grounding rod, in turn, can be connected to external ground. The 3 and 4 shelf racks will employ 2 sets of cable management apparatus per elevated shelf to organize cabling while improving signal fidelity and reducing tension on IEC connections.

In addition to the 3 and 4 shelf equipment racks, 2 sizes of vibration dissipation platforms will be offered to support stand-alone amplifiers and equipment using the same CLD architecture as the racks and mounted on 3 MPODs per platform.

Sonusfaberから、Olympica Nova シリーズ登場!!

海外ニュース速報 [World] 新製品速報

Sonusfaber Olympica Nova

 

Sonus faber is proud to announce the launch of their new Olympica Nova speaker collection at the 16th Annual Rocky Mountain International Audio Fest (RMAF) in September 2019. The new collection will be available for viewing at the Red Rock 1 Room, Colorado Ballroom, Level 3 of the Convention Center. Product details can be found below.

 

Background

Over the last 12 months, Sonus faber has begun a complete update to their product assortment, focusing on the attributes which originally built the brand: technological innovation, long term listenability and Italian craftsmanship. New launches have included Sonetto and Palladio Collections, a new line of Gravis subwoofers, the Electa Amator III and the Minima Amator II, all showcasing the brand’s dedication to innovation and its Italian heritage. The reinvention of the Olympica Nova collection is just the latest step in this evolution, and a new set of offerings that truly embody the brand’s stylistic manifesto.

 

The new Olympica Nova embraces the authentic values that inspired the original Olympica line while adding a substantial amount of freshly developed technology, from new drivers and crossovers, to new cabinet structure and internal volume tuning, to a new exterior look. Of the seven models in the collection, three are all-new to the Olympica Nova line, including an on-wall model, a third and more powerful floor-stander, and a larger center channel.

 

The Aesthetics

 

Structure: The walls of the new Olympica Nova collection are made with eight layers of bended wood, providing the cabinet with extreme rigidity. Inside the cabinet, carefully placed structural ribs are used as reinforcement to reduce vibration and to handle the overall power of the transducer’s movement.

Top: The original Olympica’s leather wrapped top panel gives way to a walnut or wenge wood panel set in a solid die-cast aluminum plate.

Reflex: The outer part of the Stealth Ultraflex™ system, an extremely low-turbulence porting system, is fabricated from a solid piece of extruded aluminum and it is inherited from Sonus Faber’s Homage Tradition models. Inspired by sea waves, the system facilitates airflow through the duct while controlling its speed and reducing distortion-causing turbulence.

Supports: Completely redesigned for the line relaunch, the supports (bottom plates and stands) are crafted from solid aluminum billets and paired with steel spikes, guaranteeing increased strength and solidity.

Front baffle: The front baffle is comprised of hand-finished natural wood, enhancing the entire enclosure.

Voice of Sonus faber: Genuine leather is applied to Voice of Sonus faber and around the woofers. As per Sonus faber tradition, the leather is applied by hand in the brand’s Vicenza production facility.

Asymmetric shape: This specific shape allows versatile positioning of the speakers for efficient bass response tuning in any room, while the lack of flat and parallel walls improves enclosure performance. This is an original design concept inspired by nature, as the lines follow the flow of a circular spiral motion, achieving a more organic cabinet structure. Not 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.

The Technology

The new Olympica Nova collection merges tradition and innovation, featuring advanced solutions that enhance Sonus faber’s trademark performance.

 

The tweeter features the DAD technology (Damped Apex Dome) on a 28mm silk dome diaphragm and a magnetic motor system that integrates “Neodymium Cap Design”. The arch and the ring of the DADTM system have been redesigned and obtained from a solid piece of aluminum die-cast.

The midrange and mid-woofer transducers are derived from those used in the Homage Tradition collection with evolutionary improvements:

The Cone: Following the traditional Sonus faber structure, air-dried, non-pressed blend of cellulose pulp and other natural fibers Kapok, Kenaf gives the cone a slightly rough surface of varying density, which reduces resonance, guaranteeing a natural sound with increased transparency and detail.

Die-Cast Aluminum Basket is designed to allow maximum rigidity and airflow, enhancing detail.

The Moving Coil is made with CCAW (Copper Clad Aluminum Winding), a special copper alloy that reduces moving mass and improves dynamics and power handling

The Phase Plug is made of aluminum with a copper ring, helping to eliminate intermodulation distortion and enhance micro-dynamics

The woofer features a cone that benefits from an exclusive sandwich construction technique where two sheets of cellulose pulp encasing a hi-tech syntactic foam. This low-mass, high-rigidity structure provides fast and powerful sound reproduction while allowing total coherence with the mid-high units.

The cross-over network implements Paracross TopologyTM, making it less sensitive to radio-frequency interference, improving transient response and lowering noise floor. The filtering topology of the entire line features new exclusive Clarity Cap capacitors, customized for Sonus faber.

Olympica Nova collection is available in two finishes:

 

WENGE matte
