ALTO GENESIS SAT

Art. No. 5971
Characteristics and sound properties

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.

Extract from HiFi Test

"The listening test proved the value of the impressive deep bass qualities ...." "While the satellite speakers provided the necessary crystal-clear mid- to high-range fill-in ...." "The testers at HiFi Test only have one recommendation to make Buy!"

Verdict: very good

Extract from Audio

"A masterly performance - the bass system produced such deep, deep bass attacks with such amazing clarity from its bandpass cabinets that it ended up with no less than 50 points."

Value for money: very good
