MarkAudio SOTA’s flagship 2-way loudspeakers Viotti Tower combine Italian style with British sound experience.
Loudspeakers The speaker utilizes custom all-range symmetric driver technology
MarkAudio-SOTA utilizes a number of key features to produce the uniquely rich, natural and detailed sound of their loudspeakers. From the Symmetrical Sound Field technology and simply elegant crossovers, to the All-Range Driver Approach, the speakers are built from the ground up with a goal to faithfully reproduce the music. MarkAudio-SOTA loudspeakers are built from the ground up, including the cabinets, crossovers and speaker drivers.
The simple but elegant crossover design progressively transitions the higher and lower ranges of the audio signal to the driver optimized to handle that part of the spectrum. MarkAudio-SOTA uses its own symmetrical technology. The dual, wide dispersion, shallow-profile cone drivers replace conventional cone-woofer and dome-tweeter combinations. MarkAudio-SOTA’s unique dual-driver, all-range approach offers the rich midrange that is typical of a wide-range single speaker design.
It is providing a full frequency range extending from 40Hz to 30kHz, and the high-impact dynamics of more typical multi-way speakers. The crossover components are mounted on a custom printed circuit board with heavy-gauge tracks for minimum losses. Key features are polypropylene-film capacitors with copper wires and two different types of inductor, optimised for their different functions. This is one of the best 100W you will ever hear. ■
