Description

Starting with subsonic rumble provided by dynamic driver, through heavy but precise punch presented by armature subwoofers, textured lows, gentle, laidback, mids and well defined high mids, Anima tops your experience with sparkly, yet elegant highs iced with breath and air provided by electrostatic supertweeters.

Slightly W-shaped response provides fun listening experience maintaining monitor-like technical qualities. Shifting from track to track, precisely reflecting timbre and tonal balance of the original recording.

First extraordinary things that one would notice are Bello Opal faceplates. This material truly is the king among lab-grown opals. The extremely complex and precise manufacturing process gives it an awesome play of colour, impossible to find in any other material. Lab-grown opals are physically almost identical to natural opals, which is why they’ve gained such a reputation and can be found in masterpieces of jewellery around the world. Every piece is unique, with crystals of different shapes and sizes.

After dozens of simulations and prototypes, based on our VariBore™ technology, we finally came up with the Organic Horn Nozzle™. The gradual change in the shape ensures matching impedance and suppresses the resonances you get with traditional straight-tube models.

Starting with subsonic rumble provided by dynamic driver, through heavy but precise punch presented by armature subwoofers, textured lows, gentle, laidback, mids and well defined high mids, Anima tops your experience with sparkly, yet elegant highs iced with breath and air provided by electrostatic supertweeters.

Slightly W-shaped response provides fun listening experience maintaining monitor-like technical qualities. Shifting from track to track, precisely reflecting timbre and tonal balance of the original recording.

But what about the material? After dozens of trials (and errors), we realized the significant role material plays in the final timbre and imaging. We needed some sort of mass to ensure the weight and clarity of the low end while ensuring the perfect transfer of high and ultra-high frequencies. The manufacturing technology, including a considerable amount of hand-processing, leaves the inside of the horn slightly textured. Combined with the geometry, this texture enhances the reflection and dispersion of high and ultra-high frequencies, directing them straight to your ear. Silver oxidizes over time and changes like its owner.

HYBRID LOW-END TECHNOLOGY

Electrostatic tweeters are animals that need to be properly tamed. We went with ultra-high quad drivers to ensure maximum output in the highest part of the spectrum, maintaining the lowest possible distortion. The remaining drivers are coupled with a high-impedance crossover section to make the ultra-high frequencies run in optimal conditions. That is why Anima would greatly appreciate DAP or DAC with a little bit more headroom than your average smartphone.

ULTRAHIGH TWEETER TECHNOLOGY

After long conversations with audiophiles worldwide and dozens of trials utilizing both balanced armature and dynamic drivers for low end, we came up with an idea: what if we took the punch and clarity of Balanced Armature subwoofers and perfectly combined them with the weight and low-end rumble produced by our 7mm Titanium-Diaphragm Dynamic Driver?Without a carefully designed crossover, it wouldn’t be possible to ensure the phase coherence that bridges these two technical worlds. We called it BADD™ Hybrid Low-End Technology.

Anima is all about space. Lively, airy, breathing. Holographic image of unsurpassed extention in its width, depth and height.

Another thing your sharp eyes will notice are the nozzles. They’re unlike any others. Think of them as crucial elements between the drivers and your eardrums, like a tiny room housing your speakers. Every listening room needs precise geometry and special finishing materials to bring out the best in your audio.

We chose graphene-coated silver-plated copper cable with a hundred and forty-four strands to maintain smoothness, detail, and extraordinary staging. It demonstrated ideal synergy with the sound of the Anima. This handmade work of art was further customized with crushed Bello Opal particles by the amazing artists at @vikingweavecables.
