Vyger is pleased to announce its first speaker. Called the “AMARGOSA” the name derives from a star.
The Amargosa project took many years of research and development and like the other VYGER devices, nothing was left to chance. The design of the Amargosa was a collaboration of specialists and engineers in world-renowned fields.
The Armagosa’s design, achieves incredible temporal coherence and an excellent impulse response.
The transients reproduced by Amargosa are of the highest quality. The reproduction of each nuance, micro details, and macro dynamics are simply realistic.
The system consists of a tweeter, 2 midrange drivers, 1 mid bass driver and a subwoofer. The drivers are built on tight tolerances in Denmark, on Vyger specifications. Their creation required many prototypes.
For the low frequencies, a 4th order system has been created, which guarantees an excellent extension and speed of low frequencies with reduced distortion plus an excellent transient response. Moreover, the woofer does not use a crossover but has been linearized and filtered mechanically, allowing amplification to have total control of the moving coil. A passive woofer is employed here instead of the classic conduit, creating an optimal filtration. A dedicated mid-bass driver completes the low range stage by interfacing optimally in terms of phase and response.
The medium-high range, with temporal coherence, is created with two dedicated midrange drivers and a beryllium tweeter developed and made by Vyger in Germany. In order to get the temporal coherence of the system, a wave guide has been made for the tweeter that has been the subject of complex studies and experiments allowing the tweeter to physically retreat and temporally align the midrange signal. The dynamics reproduced, even at high listening volumes, is free of significant distortions, due to the temporal consistency. The localization of the transients in the sound scene and the high naturalness of the same, is realistically reproduced. The image recreated in three-dimensional space is a rare refinement.
The construction of Amargosa’s cabinet has been designed and manufactured with composite materials optimized to have maximum rigidity and structural damping. The front is made of a single resin and talc casting with thicknesses of 30 mm with MDF sandwiches and inert material with strong damping. The separate chambers for each driver are made of resin casting with optimized geometry to the control of the standing waves is not communicated to the rest of the cabinet. The analysis of the Amargosa in our lab provided record breaking waterfall response with excellent decay times. In addition, Amargosa’s shape is not just aesthetic, it is as a result of extensive calculations on the propagation of sound waves, which removes the cabinet from the three-dimensional space of the sound scene.
Vyger has once again created an innovative product, with unparalleled quality and performance with amazing sound results. The aesthetic result of Amargosa is impressive and the result of a delicate and miraculous balance between aesthetic and rationality is unrivaled.
The Amargosa Loudspeaker represents a masterpiece of engineering and aesthetic design, developed by a group of experts and fans of precisely reproduced music as faithfully as possible.
