VANA's full range floor standing Avantera III is finally on its way to U.S. markets. Sporting a pair of 5.9-inch HHCM III midranges and four 7-inch woofers, the Avantera III is available immediately to dealers.
“We are confident that the Avantera III is one of the most significant product introductions from this esteemed manufacturer," said VANA Managing Director Nancy Weiner. "This is a loudspeaker that has superb musicality and refinement as well as the visual appeal to compete against far more costly speakers in the marketplace."
The Avantera III also utilizes a meticulously designed crossover network featuring Clarity Capacitors, that VANA ensures a "level of finite precision delivering a signal to each of the drivers." The enclosure, which tilts rearward at an angle of 7-degrees in order to deliver a time-aligned presentation, has ample internal bracing with ceramic foam elements in the woofer and midrange chambers, reducing resonances to imperceptible levels so that it cannot influence the listening experience.
Audio Physic eliminates the spurious energy resulting from bass impulses by utilizing a mirror-image configuration of the four 7-inch bass drivers in each Avantera III enclosure. In order to deliver the purest mid-frequency resolution, Audio Physic engineers have used specially structured dampening panels developed specifically for the Avantera chassis to dramatically reducing the reflection of midrange energy within the cabinet.
For the HHCT III tweeter, Audio Physic has developed a new type of silver connector at the interface between the refined crossover network and driver that is effective in suppressing micro-vibrations that could influence the sensitive high-frequency signals.
Similar to other Audio Physic models, the Avantera III also features Active Cone Dampening (ACD) for minimal cone resonances, and VCT (Vibration Control Terminals), which are resonance-optimized WBT nextgen connectors that eliminate unwanted vibrations while connecting speaker cables via mechanically decoupled pure silver terminals.
The Audio Physic Avantera III is available now. US MSRP is $22,995 (pair) in Cherry and Walnut Wood Veneer finishes, and $24,995 for Black or White High gloss or Ebony Wood Veneer.
