CLASSIC 200

As the name CLASSIC 200 suggests, this speaker design uses the classic 3-band arrangement: one woofer, one mid-range cone and one dome tweeter, all arranged one above the other close together in the front baffle. The AL 200 - 8 Ohm, TI 100 - 8 Ohm and KE 25 SC - 8 Ohm used here are the best drivers in their respective categories available from the VISATON catalogue. For an upright cabinet, this is relatively small, enabling space-saving use in almost any sitting room.

The sensitivity of the CLASSIC 200 is excellent for a speaker of this size. This is made possible by the "slim-line" bass tuning. In comparison with the VOX 200, which has almost the same driver arrangement, the lower limiting frequency has been set slightly higher. This will appeal in particular to those who appreciate more "crisp" bass reproduction. The difference is that, in the CLASSIC 200, the low-frequency room resonance which is almost always present in any room, is not excited to the same degree and this reduces the reverberation.

The other drivers are also without doubt excellent and contribute to a holistic overall sound consisting of precise mid-range and clear as crystal, unobtrusive, smooth-as-silk treble frequencies.

CLASSIC 200 GF

Visaton's CLASSIC 200 GF offers an interesting way to enter the world of high-end music pleasure. The high-quality components have been selected with an eye on optimising value-for-money but without losing sight (or rather, sound) of the key quality requirements.

Supported by the front bass reflex vent, the GF 200 - 2 x 4 Ohmgenerates low-frequency sound in a classic 3-band combination. Thanks to the extremely rigid fibre-glass diaphragm and long cone-displacement properties, level accuracy is perfectly maintained even when coneexcursion is considerable.

In the mid-range, the TI 100 - 8 Ohm, one of the best Visaton drivers available, takes control. This very light, rigid titanium driver has become a reference point in terms of distortion free, well-detailed music reproduction.

Above 2200 Hz, the G 20 SC - 8 Ohm fabric dome driver cuts in and does not stop until well above the frequencies considered to be audible (30 kHz).

The overall result is a very high-quality, perfectly balanced speaker whose moderate size makes it an excellent candidate for enjoying high-end music in the sitting-room.

COUPLET LIGHT

The COUPLET LIGHT is a compact D Appolito configuration shelf speaker. It can be used as a shelf-top speaker or mounted on free-standing supports. In contrast to the original COUPLET, this system uses two W 130 S - 8 OHM as woofers. The tweeter and the cabinet design with its flow-optimised BR 25.50 bass reflex tube have been taken over unchanged.

The result is a speaker that maintains its linear characteristics right across the frequency range. Due to the well balanced medium range, the fine details of music reproduction, in particular, comes across particularly clearly. The excellent omnidirectional sound distribution creates a particularly room-filling music reproduction and clear location of each individual instrument or voice. The lowest-range bass comes across equally powerfully. In short, the COUPLET LIGHT is a speaker that is really good fun.

ELEVATION 3

This designer speaker cabinet is a challenge for any experienced craftsman who is looking for a speaker that stands out from the crowd. The excellent design means that the shape is not just a designer's whim but a technically thought-out reality. The front baffle has been kept as narrow as possible all the way along. This projects the sound away from the speakers into the room, in such a way that the instruments and voices are perfectly positioned and - provided the speakers are positioned away from the walls - the listener is treated to excellent spatial sound. The curved shape of the side panels has a stiffening effect and reduces resonance dramatically. In this way, the conventional reinforcements are not required.
In the bass department, we have the GF 200 - 2 x 4 Ohm with its high level accuracy, which can really make the most of its long-stroke voice coil and fibre-glass reinforced cone. The bass driver is positioned very close to the floor of the cabinet, and requires a low cross-over frequencyup to the mid-range. In order to maintain the excellent level accuracy here, a speaker with a large cone surface area has been chosen. In this combination, the AL 170 - 8 Ohm demonstrates its remarkable mid-range characteristics that guarantee exceptional transparency and clarity of sound. The tried-and-tested G 25 FFL - 8 Ohm textile dome unit adds depth and vitality to the high-range.

FONTANELLA SUB

The FONTANELLA subwoofer satellite system is both visually and accoustically a completely new experience. The drivers in the satellitesare 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 satellitesshould 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 satellitesand 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 SUB

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.

The BR 25.50 bass reflex tube with its flow-optimised, curved trumpet vent, contributes to the good overall sound of the subwoofer. 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 Surround systems at home.

QUINTETT

With a cabinet volume of just over 56 litres, the QUINTETT could not be said to be a small speaker. Despite its size, it comes across as elegant and sophisticated, thanks to the arrangement of its drivers and the slim baffle. Fitted with no less than five AL 130 - 8 Ohm, it is generously equipped but stopping short of exaggeration.

Four of the AL 130 - 8 Ohm, with a combined diaphragm area of 316 cm², are fitted in the bass reflex cabinet and generate sufficient bass, so no subwoofer is needed. The QUINTETT is based on a development idea suggested by the German "Klang & Ton" Hi-Fi magazine which was then finalised by modifying the crossover.

The uppermost of the five AL 130 - 8 Ohm, which is neatly housed in its own enclosed 5-litre cabinet, together with the tried-and-tested KE 25 SC - 8 Ohm ceramic dome tweeter, produce clear mid-to-high-range soundabove 500 Hz.

In terms of its sound quality, the QUINTETT can be described as rich in detail and very precise. It uncompromisingly shows up every defect in a recording but, on the other hand, reproduces good recordings perfectly, without the slightest distortion and with remarkable positioning accuracy. Bass sound is reproduced very accurately and clearly and, thanks to the be-wiring connections, can be controlled separately from the mid- and high range frequencies. The QUINTETT is, as a result, not a speaker that produces some softened-down mash, it is, on the contrary, a realist that can easily cope with maximum volume settings.

SOLO 50

The SOLO 50 applies the SOLO 100 concept to a more compact cabinet. This makes the units suitable for smaller rooms where the larger version would be too physically overpowering or the bass too powerful.

With a net volume of 50 litres, it is essential to have an internal resonance absorber as with the SOLO 100 owing to the Q-factor of the B 200 - 6 Ohm. This can also be used to fine-tune the bass reflex. The lower limiting frequency is not as low as with the SOLO 100 but is certainly sufficient for small to medium-sized rooms. The absorber must be carefully damped again.

The correcting circuitry is designed by analogy to the SOLO 100. If you replace the 15 ohm resistance with a 22 ohm, the increase in high-frequency frequency response will be eliminated and the result as measured in the measuring room was a well-balanced spectrum. Listening tests showed, however, that, as a result of the beaming effect of this wide-range speaker, a slight increase is beneficial in most listening environments.

SUB T-20.39

The compact SUB T-20.39 subwoofer makes use of the same cabinet as the SUB W-20.39. In contrast, it uses the more powerful TIW 200 XS - 8 Ohm high-end woofer. The TIW 200 XS - 8 Ohm, designed through and through as a long-stroke driver, achieves an even lower level of limiting frequency and an increase in level accuracy. Its bass reproduction is exceptionally clear-cut.

As a result, the SUB T-20.39 is suitable for inclusion in small and medium-sized, high-grade speaker cabinets (e.g. ARIA, ARIA 2, COUPLET ), whether stereo or multi-channel systems. It is powerful enough to deliver hard-hitting bass attacks in normal rooms but is still highly compact in terms of its external dimensions.

A complete kit for this suggestion is available via www.vc-mailorderservice.de.

SUB W-20.39

The SUB W-20.39 is the ideal subwoofer for boosting the bass output of smaller or medium-sized speakers. On the one hand, it is powerful enough to generate driving low-range bass effects in normal rooms and, on the other hand, highly compact. In large rooms or if extremely high bass output is required for longer periods, a second subwoofer of the same type can be added.
If the SUB W-20.39 is to be used in the vicinity of a TV set, then instead of the W 200 S - 4 OHM, we recommend using the magnetically shielded W 200 SC - 4 OHM. This prevents the TV being distorted by the magnetic scatter field.
In addition, it is also possible to use the 8 ohm version of the woofer (W 200 S - 8 OHM, W 200 SC - 8 OHM) if the amplifier used does not allow lower impedance speakers to be connected or if several subwoofers are to be combined.
Not available as a complete kit.

VIB 170 AL

The VIB 170 AL is a slim-line 2-band column speaker using an AL 170 - 8 Ohm woofer and a 25 mm, G 25 FFL - 8 Ohm textile dome tweeter. The 34 litre bass reflex cabinet produces a remarkably deep lower limiting frequency of only 25 Hz, but maintains its powerful, precise bass reproduction. The reason for this is the subwoofer AL 170 - 8 Ohm with its rear-vented spider and its long cone strokes. The flow-optimised bass reflex tube BR 25.50 is mounted at the rear of the cabinet to present the most ideal optical appearance, but can, if the cabinets are to be set close to a wall (closer than 10 cm), be moved to the front without any loss in quality.

The two 1 µF capacitors in conjunction with the 2.2 mH coil form a blocking circuit that effectively suppresses the resonance in the aluminium diaphragm generated typically by that material.

The VIB 170 AL is a compact speaker with well-balanced sound quality and clean-cut bass and impulse fidelity, providing excellent dynamic properties for a speaker of this size.

QUINTETT LIGHT

Just as the light versions of VOX and COUPLET, the QUINTETT LIGHTis aimed at coming as close as possible to the outstanding sound quality of its "big sister", with substantial lower priced driver units.

When listening to both the QUINTETT and the QUINTETT LIGHT, the direct comparison attests: Goal reached.

The QUINTETT LIGHT is, as well as the QUINTETT, a high efficiencyspeaker with a very balanced frequency response. Only in terms of dynamics and maximum sound pressure level, the QUINTETT LIGHTcannot fully keep up with the outstanding performance of the QUINTETT.

Anybody who is into the concept of the QUINTETT, but at a more favourable price, is well advised to take a closer look at the QUINTETT LIGHT.
