    Audio Solutions Virtuoso B Bookshelf Speakers

     

    The Virtuoso series employs much of the advanced technology originally developed for the company’s flagship Vantage 5th-anniversary series, combined with a sophisticated visual design. The Virtuoso series sits comfortably between AudioSolutions’ Figaro and Vantage 5th anniversary series.

     

    DESCRIPTION

     

    Notable highlights of the new series include a box-in-a-box system, mini-horn loaded tweeter, an extended frequency midrange driver, a user-adjustable crossover with three listening profiles, as well as innovative self-locking cabinets. 

     

    FEATURES

     

    A significant highlight of the Virtuoso loudspeaker series is its advanced “box in a box” cabinet design, which consists of two boxes glued together. Originally developed for the Figaro series, the structure of this cabinet has been further improved to enhance the sonic performance of the Virtuoso series. The weakest points of a traditional speaker cabinet are the corner joints since they behave more like hinges, rather than tight joints in a natural vibrating environment. The “box in a box” approach resolves this issue by combining two cabinets, arranged in an offset pattern. The internal cabinet is fully sealed and outfitted with heavy internal bracing and dampening.  It is then covered with an outer box, which is glued tightly to the internal cabinet. This technique allows the cabinet to achieve 10 times the stiffness of a single layer enclosure. The sonic gains from the stiffer cabinet are enormous - the sound is neutral and more authentic.

     

    AudioSolutions first introduced an adjustable crossover in the Vantage Classic loudspeaker series.  This allowed the user to fine-tune the speakers to their room and associated audio components.  Now with the Virtuoso series, the concept is raised to another level, allowing the listener to choose one of three different crossover profiles.

    1.       Balanced – this mode is a sweet spot with great musical clarity and an immersive soundstage.

    2.       Moderate – this mode is ideal for prolonged listening sessions and times when the speakers are driven near their limits, especially when listening to rock or metal. The continued evolution of high-end audio components and loudspeakers means that today’s gear reveals many imperfections in the recordings, which can make them sound distorted, noisy and tiring to your ears.  This is particularly true with classic rock albums.  The Soft mode applies a technique similar to recording studios, manipulating distortions and very sharp nulls in the frequency range.

    3.       Enhanced – engaging this mode will allow the l
