The entry into truly world class loudspeaker performance.......
Grandinote's Massimiliano Magri explains the SRT technology :
"It's been many, many years that we have tried to get a truly great sound from crossover-less speakers.
We have understood that in fact the only way to get to this goal, is to use drivers that don't actually exist...
We tested a lot of full-range and extended-range drivers:
- always the sound was "nasal", annoying in the high frequencies.
These problems are caused by the high frequencies break-up of the drivers.
By the crossover, these break-up's are killed, but the crossover also kills a lot of musicality.
Our solution is to use a "mechanical" crossover.
We obtain this by a special treatment behind the drivers membranes.
This treatment kills break-up, without stealing musicality - this is the holy grail in loudspeaker design.
Finally we have our driver design which perform unlike anything else you will have ever heard, and all without a crossover, this has resulted in :
- simply the best voicing that I ever ever experienced from loudspeakers.
This treatment also positively modifies drivers parameters, especially the Fs (driver free air resonance, the lower the better) and the Qts (how strong the motor and magnet system are).
We created drivers with low Fs and high Qts.
These parameters are perfect for transmission line and other similar configurations.
We developed a solution which is geographically designed in the middle between bass reflex and transmission line.
Our cabinet has a special geometric 'tube' style topology, with a large bespoke downward port.
This tube is too short for a transmission line: it's another bespoke design entirely !
We call this solution "Semi Resonance Tube": S.R.T.
In this way, we have very deep, tight, fast bass, very different that all other speakers that I listened to..."
