Anima CS/ Including Proprietary Stands

The Anima CS takes the Anima two-way monitor's superlative performance up another level. The improvements? An overall reduction in the noise level of the speaker, higher resolution, and improved dynamics. And what did we do to get these improvements? First of all, the two loudspeakers incorporate the same drivers, bamboo cabinet, crossover topology, premium internal wiring and Eichmann connectors. These highly refined components are the basis for the already excellent performing standard version.

But, the CS version incorporates a number of special noise-reduction treatments (i.e.: Balanced Force Design) and custom parts. The first is a ¾ inch stainless steel base. The significant mass of the stainless steel base, added to the rigid bamboo cabinet, provides a nearly immovable baffle for the speaker drivers. It is also a low vibration platform where the Anima CS crossover is mounted using a floating and decoupled suspension system.

The CS crossover contains only the finest capacitors and hand built low-frequency inductors designed by audio engineer Brian Daley. These are the details that create the low distortion, three-dimensional, high dynamic presentation of the Anima CS. The improved bass extension, clarity and transient response this maximized crossover yields led Allen Perkins to comment that these loudspeakers are not delicate-sounding, but rather deeply nuanced.

It is the Anima CS’ bass extension, however, that surprises first-time listeners. One aspect of CS that this unexpected bass psychoacoustics play a role. Science has shown us that when we hear harmonics associated with a fundamental frequency, our brain will re-create the fundamental frequency as a part of our hearing experience – even though the fundamental frequency is not actually present. Another way to look at this is to consider that a fundamental frequency, like A440, is the same, for example, from a flute or a violin. The reason we can tell its being played by a flute and not a violin is the harmonics above the fundamental.

To achieve these qualities, designer Joachim Gerhard uses psychoacoustics to encourage your brain to provide what physics restricts. With a keen understanding of how we process sound, Joachim uses our brain’s perception mechanism to our advantage. For this effect to be convincing the reproduced harmonic structure must be very accurate. The Anima CS’ harmonic accuracy is such that your brain is able to take the sonic information provided by the loudspeaker and fill in the fundamental where the speaker cannot. This is no more obvious than in the bass region, but it also is true throughout the entire frequency spectrum, and contributes to the “solid” authoritative sound from the Anima CS.
