This is a small speaker but in performance it roars.
Several studios use this speaker as their reference monitor.
Absolutely pin point precise, this is a speaker that reveals the grace and charm in music.
The Anima is a compact performance oriented two-way monitor that delivers designed to be used with the best world-class components.
The sound is unusually unrestricted and open with a 3-dimensional, almost holographic spatial representation and neutral tonal balance. In a small to medium sized room the Anima provides realistic reproduction with expressive dynamics and good bass extension and plays surprisingly loud. The speaker is highly musical and can be listened to without any stress for many hours.
The tweeter is a combination metal and soft dome. In the middle of a very wide textile surround is a compact aluminum-magnesium dome. This dome is very light and stiff and is distortion free to frequencies far above human hearing. Its large surround increases its output and lowers its cut-off frequency.
The woofer/midrange cone is uniquely shaped and made with a light but stiff metal alloy with ceramic coating. The cone only begins to distort above 8kHz, far above its operating range. Designed for dynamic resolution, this driver delivers exceptional definition. The combined result of our efforts is drastically reduced distortion and increased volume with more expressive dynamics. This also contributes to the Animas excellent bass definition and resolution of micro details, which are so important for recreating spatial information.
Due to its low price and easy machine-ability, MDF (medium density fiberboard) has established itself as the primary material for speaker enclosures. For performance however, it is far from optimal. Because MDF is heavy and flexible internal sound pressure turns the entire cabinet into a high distortion speaker. The Anima is built from 13-layer plywood costing five times more than MDF. The enclosure is very light, stiff and well damped with constrained layer damping to further reduce sound from exiting the cabinet walls. The net result is a cabinet that does not add its own coloration to the music.
The crossover is a 12 to 24dB transitional design optimized for the best step response and minimal energy storage. It is built with very high quality components.
