MAGELLAN QUATUOR 40TH
Music as if you were at the opera. The sound image takes on a whole new dimension here, filling the space with sophistication. The Quatuor 40th, a 135cm high 3-way floorstander, is the flagship of the new MAGELLAN 40th anniversary edition.
With a new dome made of magnesium alloy, its horn tweeter reveals the finest details of your recordings smoothly and accurately. The Quatuor 40th is characterized by the addition of a rear tweeter that allows the speaker to radiate energy to the front and rear of the transmitting point. The sound level is better distributed, and the placement of the speaker simplified.
The 16cm driver with a paper diaphragm and small pleat suspensions, a distinctive feature of TRIANGLE speakers, reproduces any vocal register with great neutrality and without the slightest coloration.
The powerful and extensive bass of the three 16cm drivers is perfectly suited for modern music as well as for a prestigious string quartet or a cello suite. Its proprietary SVA diaphragm and its cooling system provide exceptional performances in the bass and sub-bass register.
Its extended bandwidth and its significant reserve of power make it possible to easily provide sound in rooms larger than 30m2.
DPS2 DYNAMIC PULSE SYSTEM
On the Quatuor 40th anniversary model, the addition of a rear tweeter that allows the speaker to radiate energy to the front and rear of the transmitting point, much like a symphony orchestra would. With this gain of energy initially lost off axis from the listening point, the sound volume is better distributed in front of the listener. This allows for easier placement of the speaker in the room and a stable and deep sound image with great openness without distorting the original signal.
The driver features a proprietary SVA diaphragm. This computer-modeled composite diaphragm is characterized by a ‘sandwich’ structure, composed of a double sheet of fiberglass with a cellulose pulp internal structure. It provides the ideal combination of mass damping and rigidity to the moving coil. The driver thus handles strong impulses without distortion.
SOLID WOOD CABINET
The cabinet of the MAGELLAN 40th anniversary edition has been carefully designed to ensure total reliability. The curved shape of the cabinet is made of successive layers of high-density fiberboard, each 3mm thick, thus excluding any internal parallels.
This cabinet is characterized by a specific architecture resulting from a thorough study of the vibrations and micro-deformations of the cabinetry. Reinforcements have been placed strategically to make sure the cabinets are rigid enough to withstand the powerful vibrations generated by the drivers at high volume levels.
