Sonus Faber Olympica Nova I & Marantz 30 + SACD30N
Sonus Faber Olympica Nova I Speakers
The original Olympica collection was one of the first lines presented as a complete family of products. And above all, it was the very first to feature original drivers, entirely designed within the Sonus faber “household”. Improved in both its form and substance, the Olympica Nova range is imbued with the timeless values that inspired Sonus ƒaber in creating the original line. The result is an entirely new collection of loud-speakers that embrace some of the most advanced Sonus ƒaber technologies and workmanship.
Olympica Nova I is the first and only bookshelf model of the line. As expected from Sonus ƒaber, the Olympica Nova I is wonderfully finished. And it’s not all about the look! Its clean design, defined by the distinct lack of flat and parallel walls, improves enclosure performance. It also maintains the asymmetrical Lute shape of first generation Olympica. Inspired by nature, the lines follow the flow of a circular spiral motion, achieving a more organic cabinet structure. No longer just a functional element added to handle airflow, the reflex duct is now fully integrated into the cabinet, further improving the speed and transparency of sound. The result? A stunning near-field speaker for the serious listener, with a finish that meets the most fastidious of interior design values.
Marantz Model 30 Amplifier + SACD30N Streamer
You’ll see and feel it in the build quality and you’ll hear it every time. No matter your musical passions, your music will simply sound better amplified by the Marantz Model 30. The solid chassis of the Model 30 is constructed from heavy, non-magnetic aluminium panels. A rigid steel top cover guards against unwanted interference. Sturdy, brass machined, independent terminals for CD and Phono plus Marantz original high-quality/high-purity nickel-plated speaker terminals ensure the best possible signal path.
The Marantz SACD30N is built to meet all the requirements of the modern audiophile who wants to combine a large digital music collection with the leading online music services. The SACD30N marries a classic, high-end CD/SACD player with a modern digital HUB/PRE-AMP…now that’s clever! It plays high resolution files including FLAC-HD and DSD from your home network, local USB storage device and on-line streaming and radio services.
The Model 30 and SACD30N combination has been tuned by the “Marantz Sound Master” channeling his passion, experience, and extraordinary ear into every aspect of the amplifier design. These hundreds of hours of thoughtful tuning ensures the exquisite detail and musicality for which Marantz audiophile components have always been renowned. Both the Marantz Model 30 and SACD30N are built on discrete circuit boards, the Hyper-Dynamic Amplifier Module, or HDAM. By custom-curating hundreds of individual parts, rather than adopting an off-the-shelf solutions, the Model 30 and SACD30N custom HDAMs significantly outperform standard integrated circuits to create the unique musicality you always expect from Marantz.
