Sonus faber Olympica Nova I Bookshelf Speaker (Pair)
Country of Origin: Italy
The dynamic Sonus faber Olympica Nova I Bookshelf Speaker is now available on Ooberpad. A synergy of power and quality that enables absolute enjoyment of our natural sound, minus any compromises. Since 1983, many moments have marked the history of Sonus faber; the launch of the Olympica Collection 6 years ago is one of them. One of the first lines presented as a complete family of products, but above all, the very first one to feature original drivers, comprehensively designed in Sonus faber. Olympica Nova is the second generation of the iconic family of 2013, improved in its form and substance, imbued with the timeless values that inspired us in creating the original line. The final outcome is a new Collection that incorporates the most cutting-edge technologies that already enhance our most prestigious creations.
Olympica Nova I is the bookshelf model of the line remarkably finished in its clean design, intended to be used on a bookshelf or on its stand. The Olympica Nova 1's drivers are also new and include a silk-dome tweeter with an apex-damping mechanism said to cut down antiphase distortion. The 5.5" midbass driver has an air-dried cellulose-pulp cone and a powerful neodymium magnet, and is set into a die-cast aluminum basket. The midbass unit is reflex-loaded with a vertically aligned slotted port that runs the entire height of the speaker, bordered by a finned aluminum extrusion.

Benefits of Sonus faber Olympica Nova I Bookshelf Speaker:
The lack of flat and parallel walls improves enclosure performance and maintains the typical asymmetrical Lute shape of first generation Olympica. The asymmetrical shape of the cabinet is an original design concept that allows versatile positioning of the speakers to tune the bass response in any room. Inspired by nature, the lines follow the flow of a circular spiral motion, achieving a more organic cabinet structure. No longer just a functional element added to handle airflow, the reflex duct is now fully integrated into the cabinet, further improving the speed and transparency of sound.
It shares its technical characteristics with the bigger sibling's midrange. As a matter of fact, it is the same speaker but with two main differences. The fabric hand coated dust-cap, which is implemented to maximize the diaphragm's emitting surface and therefore allowing for deeper low frequencies extension while, at the same time, perfectly blending with the tweeter from the tonal balance standpoint. The additional winding of the voice-coil improves the driver's excursion allowing for a much longer throw.
The 28 mm silk soft dome tweeter features the DAD technology (Damped Apex Dome) that enhances the smoothness and extension in the high frequency by applying local dampening to the apex typically responsible for anti-phase behavior of soft dome diaphragms. The DAD structure has been totally redesigned; a solid piece of aluminum die-cast includes both arch and ring on the dome to increase the strength and accuracy of the system.
The crossover network implements Paracross Topology, making the crossover less sensitive to radio-frequency interference, improving transient response and lowering noise floor. The filtering topology features new exclusive Clarity Cap capacitors, customized for Sonus faber.
The solid piece of extruded aluminum that complete the Stealth Ultraflex system, an extremely low-turbulence porting system, is inherited from Homage Tradition models. Favoring the profile of sea waves, the structure facilitates airflow through the duct while controlling its speed and reducing the distortion-causing turbulence.
Just like the rest of the cabinet, the front baffle is made in the walnut or wenge hand-finished natural wood. The Sonus faber designers wished to pay homage to the most representative material of Sonus faber, making it even more of a standard-bearer.
Similar to the Homage Tradition and Reference Collections, the walls are made with eight layers of bended wood, providing the cabinet with extreme rigidity. Inside the cabinet, carefully placed structural ribs are used as reinforcement to reduce vibration and to handle the overall power of the transducers movement.
The natural leather embellishes the Voice of Sonus faber, the brand's iconic configuration of tweeter and midrange and enriches the aesthetic rings around the woofers. Genuine Italian leather that as per of brand's tradition, is applied by hand in the production department in Vicenza.
The bookshelf model has been designed with the new custom Aluminum extruded stand that features a cable guide, to hide power cable in the column.
