Winner of the 2013 CES Design and Engineering Innovations award, the Sopran fully embodies the idea that “form follows function”. The cabinet eschews conventional boxy design in favor of curved lines, not merely for the sake of aesthetics, but for improved speaker performance. The Sopran 3-way (which includes five drive units) is a combination of creative vision and acoustic physics. The curved fibre-glass cabinet eliminates internal standing waves even with no internal absorption material. The result is a speaker so transparent and natural that it sounds as if there was no cabinet at all.
For tight and controlled bass reproduction a new in-line port technology was developed, molding the speaker’s back “spine” appearance for a significantly improved soundstage and realism. Add to that the latest in transducer technology from Morel: The new 6-inch drivers utilize a titanium support mechanism that transfers the motor force to the membrane with minimal energy lose to preserve the drama and dynamics of the original sound, creating a tactile musical experience.
