Sub/Sat Systems


ALTO GENESIS SAT



altogenesis

Just because your sitting-room isn't large enough for big speakers, doesn't mean you have to do without high-quality sound. The VISATON subwoofer satellite system, ALTO GENESIS provides excellent listening pleasure in a very small space.

Separating the subwoofer into two cabinets - left and right channels - means that the assignment to the corresponding satellite speaker is hidden. On the other hand, the two subwoofers can also be placed together as mono subwoofers. The bandpass subwoofer cabinet contains the 13 cm long-stroke woofer W 130 S - 8 Ohm. The well-balanced driver, cabinet and frequency parameters enable the subwoofer to be separated off at 110 Hz with a slope rate of 30 dB/octave. That is a level seldom achieved even by active subwoofers. The satellite speakers are also steeply cut off towards the bottom end by means of an optimised crossover unit. This optimised coupling technique means the position of the subwoofer is in reality not determinable.

The small shelf-mounted satellite speakers produce the lively high frequencies and a balanced mid-range and provide the overall spatial qualities required. The tuning frequency cuts in at 110 Hz.

FONTANELLA SAT

The FONTANELLA subwoofer satellite system is both visually and accoustically a completely new experience. The drivers in the satellites are arranged to project the sound upwards. Two specially shaped cones reflect the sound according to specific patterns to ensure that the sound is distributed horizontally and uniformly in all directions.

The mid-bass unit is the AL 130 M - 8 Ohm, and the tweeter range is covered by the DT 94 - 8 Ohm.

This diffused sound distribution means that the impressive spatial effect is virtually uniform all round the room. Virtual sound sources, for example the voices or instruments that appear between the speakers, can be clearly and precisely located. The depth of colour of the sound remains the same at any seating position in the whole room. Ideally, the satellites should be positioned 0.5 m to 1 m away from a wall and on a base or stand. The cones should then be at ear level or slightly below.

The passive subwoofer cabinet has been designed to match the satellites and is fitted with the GF 200 - 2 x 4 Ohm double voice-coil woofer; resulting in powerful, highly dynamic bass reproduction from this high-end driver.

The FONTANELLA system provides a high level of listening pleasure as a hifi stereo system but is also extremely well suited to use as the rear effect channel in home-video systems. In such cases, the subwoofer is not required and the two satellites are used alone.

NANO SAT



NANO

NANO is the name of the latest miniature magic made by VISATON. This system, equipped with the tiniest of satellite speakers, sounds as uncompromisingly good as many far larger upright systems. The high frequency range is designed as a dipole and, in conjunction with the mid- and bass frequencies, creates a well-rounded, airy overall sound. The balanced frequency response across the entire frequency range, one hitherto not achievable by this kind of system, is a feature of the Nano system.

The tiny satellites must be considered "sitting room friendly" because they are so compact, they'll fit in any shelving system. The subwoofer cabinet, equipped with the well-known high-end GF 200 driver, has been designed to match the satellites and simply disappears in a corner of the room.

The BR 25.50 bass reflex tube with its flow-optimised, curved trumpet vent, contributes to the good overall sound. The subwoofer cannot be located due to its 18 dB filter and separation at 150 Hz. A high-pass system and reflex balance enable the two tiny, magnetically screen satellites to produce remarkably dynamic sound. They can, therefore, also be used as centre or surround speakers for Dolby Surround systems at home.
Not available as a complete kit.

NANO SAT MK II



nanosat

NANO, Visaton's magic baby, has been revamped. In this new version, the rear-mounted tweeter has been dispensed with and the crossover unit adapted accordingly. This has enabled improvements in the natural quality of voice reproduction. In addition, the NANO is now far less susceptible to changes in position, especially the distance between the speakers and the wall. It is now possible to integrate them without loss of quality in bookshelves.

If you combine the NANO SAT MK II with the NANO SUB PR, you get a speaker system that is totally living-room friendly consisting of tiny satellites and a compact subwoofer which, all-in-all, sounds like a far larger, uncompromising column speaker set-up.

TABULA



tabula

Tabula is a stereo loudspeaker cabinet designed to look like a shelf that is extremely versatile. It can be used as a bookshelf, TV stand, worktop or hifi rack and integrated invisibly into the room as a loudspeaker.

The main drivers are the miniature fullrange BF 32 - 8 Ohm speakers which, despite their modest size, sound remarkably grown-up and incorporate such technical details as aluminium diaphragms and neodymium magnets.

The bass department of the Tabula system is provided by the W 100 S - 8 Ohm, an excellent value-for-money bass driver that has been popular for decades for that very reason. In the correspondingly designed bass reflex cabinet, this driver generates excellent low-frequency bass that is remarkably firm despite the size of the speaker.

The combination of these three components, coupled with a sophisticated crossover and the design of the system details produces a powerful stereo sound system which can be invisibly integrated into the room. Supplemented with a miniature amp (such as the VISATON AMP 2.2) and a simple MP3 player, the Tabula becomes a full-scale Hifi system.
