From the first note it was apparent and vivid that this is recognizable Serblin sound. Natural, a bit warm, but not pronounced and well suited for any music. Dispalyed Ktema's wasn't all smooth yet, if I can use that analogy, but speakers were only played for few hours so far. I guess it takes few hundred hours to drive them in as all previous Sonus Faber speakers. Even so far and with right amplification it was a formidable "deja-vu". If you loved the way Electa Amator, Stradivari and Guarneri series sounded, you'll be not only equally thrilled, but even more impressed by Ktema ability to reply your favorite recordings. This might be the missing link of past few years in Sonus Fabes sound. They took a bit different sound approach from introducing of the Elipsa and I wasn't impressed with it to be honest. Not sure why, but high-end tend to follow strange route these past few years. Lots of modern amplifiers, speakers and other components are trying to portrait the music as super open, supreme dynamic and sterile. This is simply not the way real music sound like. Few concert goings might solve that dilemma...
- Geometry: four-way topology, five units. The two low-frequency radiators are compression-loaded and room-interfaced at the lower part of the rear of the enclosure. Above the “fusion” frequency, the mid-high cardioid radiators reproduce the significant part of the spectrum, at the top section of the front of the cabinet.
- The cabinet is a rigid, triple arch-shaped structure. The two lateral front cheeks are concave, while the woofer compressor is convex.
- The tweeter is a well-established and time-proven 28mm soft-dome unit, created by Ragnar Lian, one of the greatest Danish masters of transducer design.
- The midrange array consists of two custom-made 4in units in a step-compensated baffle, in a cardioid acoustic-resistance configuration, for the most accurate reproduction of the musical perspective.
- The woofers are custom-made 9in metal cone, piston performance-optimised units, in a compression-controlled and room-interfaced configuration.
- The crossover is a mutational variable slope, coherent spatial radiation design.
- Yter pure Silver-Palladium mono-wiring used throughout.
