Tradition and modernity - for nearly 30 years our VIRGO loudspeakers have been highly regarded by music lovers as well as by German and international press. They play a central role in our AUDIO PHYSIC loudspeaker family. Now it’s about time that the VIRGO III crowns this tradition.
The key requirement for a VIRGO has always been to authentically reproduce music from a cabinet with dimensions that are suitable for private homes. But low frequencies need cabinet volume, this is determined by physics. The VIRGO III has a remarkably large internal volume - without the external dimensions growing automatically. This allows for a low cut-off frequency, the ideal prerequisite for reproducing the lows in a thrilling realistic manner. This is made possible thanks to elements made of modern ceramic foam. In the VIRGO III they largely replace classic absorbing materials, which as such consume a lot of space. The porous and extremely rigid ceramic plates control the sound radiated inwards particularly efficient and utmost stabilize the loudspeaker enclosure. Vibrations that quickly lead to colourations in the sound are drastically reduced.
Our designers consistently continue their fight against micro vibrations. The drivers are not bolted directly to the cabinet, but anchored securely through neoprene dowels in the enclosure. Both woofers are positioned inversely in the flanks of the VIRGO III and operate in push-push mode. This driver arrangement guarantees a uniform distribution of the mechanical forces acting on the body during operation, which thus largely neutralize one another. Midrange drivers and tweeters use the world's unique AUDIO PHYSIC dual basket concept. The modern architecture effectively reduces resonances and leads to an inimitable pure and open sound reproduction. The VIRGO III features the new HHCM mid-range drivers and HHCT tweeters of the third-generation - hence the assigned name VIRGO III - which are also used in our AVANTERA III model.
