About Aida 2
At a first glance, there’s no difference when comparing the Aida 2 to the 2011 edition. Instead, the 6 years separating the two editions are evident in some important stylistic choices: above all, the introduction of the Wenge wood finish. Don’t let the familiar face fool you, however!
The new Aida has been completely overhauled utilizing the most advanced electroacoustic developments, even if the outer appearance is relatively unaltered, with all its timeless class and elegance. Starting from the system that is “3 and 2/3 way” with Stealth Ultraflex, which allows better bass extension while minimizing distortion and eliminating spurious vibration coming from the air passage inside the reflex duct. The typical lyra shape enclosure, as in the previous edition, is complimented by the “Anima Legata” system, the “Tuned Mass Dampers,” and a revision of the special “Bow Spring” suspension, which contains the “Zero Vibration Transmission” system, all designed to keep both the loudspeaker and the musical environment free from unwanted resonance and vibration.
Perhaps the most radical among the new changes is the selection of all-new driver systems. The tweeter is the “D.A.D. Arrow Point” H28 XTR-04, first used in the Sonus faber Lilium and also in the most recent Homage Tradition Collection. The midrange is also promoted to a M18 XTR-04 enhanced with the avional-gunmetal basket, the most advanced midrange driver in the entire Sonus faber catalog. This new combination of tweeter and midrange creates the “Voice of Sonus faber,” the iconic configuration of driver technology capable of maintaining the effortless, warm, and involving timbre that has become a trademark of the Arcugnano-based company.
