The multi-faceted cabinet is purposely shaped to obtain a circular sound emission from the drivers. This design allows the speakers to recede from the soundstage and lets the listener enjoy the music with all the dynamics, richness and subtleties found in a real live event.
The sound reproduced is completely natural, transparent, three-dimensional and full of detail. The performance of the Ástera model is astounding in terms of musical impact, not to mention its ability to enhance and contrast instruments in the surrounding space with incredible clarity and a focus on the instruments themselves.
The numerically controlled techniques are used for the curves on the front and back of these panels create an acoustic dispersion around the speaker even more effective. The staging, detail and realism of the soundstage that immerses the listener is improved.
The multi-faceted shape of the Ástera model has been designed to obtain optimal acoustic dispersion and enable the circular emission of the sound waves around the speaker, achieving as ideal a point source as possible.
