ON-THE-EDGE TECHNOLOGY -

BERLINA BLACK EDITION


Developing the Berlina Series  was a logic step to create one of the best HiFi-loudspeaker series ever! After taking the crossover and driver technolog to the limit we invented our RC (Rib Construction) technology to eliminate vertical cabinet vibrations which are a big source of coloration of sound. And so with the Berlina RC 11 we are top of the ranking in stereoplay since 2012, top of the ranking in Audio magazine with the Berlina RC 9 and top of the ranking at AudioTest with the Berlina RC 8. Berlina RC 9 won the “Golden Ear Award” 2015 and 2016 in “The Absolute Sound”. Berlina RC 7 was “Speaker of the Year” in many countries. All this by accident only?

Our big success series with new components, circuitries and pcbs inside – the Black Edition was born. With all these new components and ideas we succeeded to even improve all acoustical properties and sounds of all Berlinas! So the Rib Construction concept is more actual than ever before.

TECHNICAL DETAILS:
· acoustically favourable cabinet
· symmetrized crossover with Mundorf components
· ultrahigh slope crossover of more than 60 dB/octave
·ninefold room equalization
· hand-selected black Accuton drivers
· BiWiring WBT 0703 NextGen binding posts
· Clearwater wiring inside
· bass extension bridge
· adjustable spikes included
  aluminum bigfoot available

SYMMETRICAL ULTRASTIC PARTICULAR FREQUENCY WITH almost 50dB PARTICULARITY

 

Unique worldwide: The symmetrical design.

In addition to the individual loudspeaker drivers and the cabinet, the crossover is the main factor responsible for the sound of a loudspeaker cabinet. The crossover controls the interaction of the individual loudspeaker drivers in a returnable box. It determines at which frequency the individual drivers are acoustically removed or from which frequency they are inserted.

This creates a more or less large overlap area in which both drivers work simultaneously, which leads to distortion and interference. The crossover is the heart of every loudspeaker and determines the dynamics, power handling, resolution, three-dimensionality, sharpness, transparency and naturalness of a loudspeaker cabinet.

Years ago we therefore developed a new, revolutionary concept that placed crossover technology on a new foundation and has been
is used exclusively.

   
 

 

CERAMIC AND DIAMOND LOUDSPEAKERS

 

Fantastic transparency through the combination of pioneering materials.

BERLINA RC 3 Frontside 1 whiteBERLINA RC 3 Frontside
1 whiteceramic - the material of the 21st century. Almost unrivalled even for loudspeaker membranes. Of course, that's why we also rely on it for the Berlina series. At least up to 1,000 Hz. Because after that, there's something even better: diamond, a material with surprising and astonishing properties. Diamond is the material with the greatest hardness (hardness 10).

A diamond diaphragm therefore behaves like an ideal piston even at much higher frequencies. This diaphragm can also withstand higher accelerations. The resolution of individual tones and pulses is unique. Even the smallest subtleties and details are still audible. Dynamic compression due to deformation is no longer possible. In addition, diamond is still the material with the highest sound velocity of all materials (18,000 m/s) and thus three times as high as titanium. This means that the dreaded partial oscillations within the membrane only occur at ultrasonic frequencies that are inaudible to humans. The diamond acts like a giant heat sink, as its thermal conductivity is more than five times higher than that of even the second best material, silver! So there can be no more effective cooling of the voice coil. The dynamic compression that often occurred in the past due to the heating of the voice coil and the resulting increase in resistance of the voice coil wire are a thing of the past.

BERLINA Diamant MTBERLINA Diamond MTEs are therefore no wonder when one speaks of diamonds as the material of dreams par excellence. The material guarantees high resolution, full dynamics even during long periods of operation and freedom from discolouration. The best conditions for a fantastic loudspeaker! Diamond tweeters are standard on the BERLINA RC 9 and RC 11.

For the RC 3, RC 7 and the BERLINA FRC you can order diamond tweeters as an option. A subsequent upgrade is also possible at any later time.

   
   

INNOVATIVE RIBBED HOUSING (RC TECHNOLOGY)

 
Dynamic design meets unique sound quality.
BERLINA 3D Glas

The unique sound quality of the Berlina series is largely due to the completely new horizontal ribbed construction.

Individual ribs made of 50 mm thick MDF material are stacked on top of each other and elaborately screwed together. In order to achieve a high level of vibration decoupling between the ribs, soft, 3 mm thin soft fiber ribs are inserted between them. This prevents the propagation of vibrations between the ribs and the music signal is not distorted.

In addition, the ribs become thicker from front to back, so that no clear resonance behavior is established. At irregular intervals, additional crossbars brace the ribs so that no transverse vibrations can occur. A cabinet consists of a total of twelve different types of ribs, each with its own special task.

Cabinet material, cabinet thickness, wall construction, thickness progression, geometric cabinet dimensions, stiffening, internal wall damping - all these influences have an effect on music reproduction in a loudspeaker cabinet. Every parameter was taken into account during development and further optimised through constant measurements and listening tests.

The result is a completely new cabinet design for the BERLINA series, in which all parameters form a perfect balance for outstanding sound quality.

WBT-NEXTGEN-TERMINAL

 
  WBT-Nextgen terminal blocks - the best from the world market leader

BERLINA WBT Bass ControlThe Berlina RC 7, 9 and 11 are supplied with four high-quality terminals from WBT (BERLINA RC 11 with platinum-plated terminals). This enables bi-wiring or bi-amping operation. High-quality cable jumpers are supplied as standard if you wish to operate your speaker in single-wiring mode.

The two plug fields in the upper part of the connector panel are used to adapt the RC11 to the room acoustics of your control room separately for bass and high frequencies. Using the supplied gold-plated jumper, you can select three settings: no jumper (+ 1.5 db), 0 dB and -1.5 dB. This allows you to adjust the BERLINA to suit the size and reverberation of your room.

The BERLINA RC 11 is equipped with two WBT terminals.
   

 

BLACK EDITION

 
  As long as there is HiFi the search for the next sound improvement is alive. Good can never be good enough. According to this we are always on the search for more, for a sound improvement of our speakers. After developing the new DARC series we won so many ideas and new knowledge that it was a natural thing to put this all into our big success loudspeakers like the Vescova, Cassiano and all Berlinas. All these measures put these models to new heights and so we decided to introduce them in a special version – the Black Edition – to the market and this all for a really competitive price! So the Black Edition is something of our best we ever did!
