Nova III Overview

Essence Of A Brand.

Since 1983, many moments have marked the history of Sonus Faber; the launch of the Olympica Collection 6 years ago is one of them. One of the first lines presented as a complete family of products, but above all, the very first one to feature original drivers, entirely designed in Sonus Faber.

Olympica Nova is the second generation of the iconic family of 2013, improved in its form and substance, imbued with the timeless values that inspired Sonus Faber in creating the original line. The result is a new collection that embraces the most advanced technologies that already enhance Sonus Faber's most prestigious creations.

Olympica Nova III is the ideal solution for someone who wants to experience the essence of Sonus Faber. Slim and elegant, it offers a powerful and transparent sound at the same time. This model is capable of creating a sound stage that won’t go unnoticed. We like to think that the Olympica Nova III is unique.


MA8950 Integrated Amplifier Overiview

The MA8950 Integrated Amplifier offers 200 Watts per channel and combines McIntosh's amplification expertise and preamplifier technologies into one comprehensive stereo sound system component. It replaces the award-winning MA8900 (Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity 2017 Best Stereo Integrated Amplifier) and adds additional performance enhancements to an already outstanding stereo integrated amplifier.

McIntosh MA8950 Integrated Amplifier
Dynamic headroom has increased from 2.0dB to 3.1dB in the MA8950 as a result of its filter capacity being doubled. This gives the MA8950 even greater ability to reproduce musical peaks with less distortion. The increased filter capacity will also help deliver more amazing bass playback, low end performance, and overall bass control.

The MA8950 comes standard with the DA2 Digital Audio Module instead of the DA1 Digital Audio Module that came in the MA8900. The DA2 offers 7 digital inputs: 2 coaxial, 2 optical, 1 USB, 1 MCT, and 1 audio-only HDMI Audio Return Channel (ARC)1 connection. TVs with a compatible HDMI (ARC) output can be connected to the MA8950 to enjoy your TV’s sound like never before through your home music system. Popular multi-channel audio formats from Dolby® and DTS® are supported and will be expertly converted to 2-channel audio for proper playback. The MA8950 remote can control the TV’s power and volume when CEC communication is enabled in both the amplifier and the TV. The DA2 also features increased DSD playback support of up to DSD512 via the USB input.

The DA2 is powered by an audiophile-grade, Quad Balanced, 8-channel, 32-bit Digital-to-Analog Converter (DAC) that has improvements in both dynamic range and total harmonic distortion compared to the DAC in the DA1. The coax and optical inputs in the DA2 can decode digital music up to 24-bit/192kHz for playback of high-resolution audio. The DA2 has a McIntosh exclusive MCT input that offers a secure DSD connection to any of our MCT series of SACD/CD Transports to deliver the best possible sound quality of the high-definition audio found on your SACDs. And with its modular design, it's possible to someday replace the DA2 with a newer Digital Audio Module.

With its vast selection of digital audio inputs, analog connectivity has not been overlooked on the MA8950. It comes with 1 balanced and 6 unbalanced stereo inputs plus 1 Moving Coil and 1 Moving Magnet phono inputs for your turntable(s). All inputs can be given custom names for user-friendly system control and configuration. The Moving Coil phono input comes with adjustable loading so you can fine tune the sound of your vinyl records. All unbalanced analog connectors are made from premium gold-plated solid brass for superior signal handling and grounding. All analog and digital inputs can be given custom names for user-friendly system control and configuration. For further flexibility in setting up your stereo system, the MA8950 includes an unbalanced fixed output and an unbalanced variable output that can be used to send the audio signal to a second power amplifier.

Other updates include upgraded power supply components for even lower noise emission and added reliability under the most demanding conditions. The MA8950 continues to use powerful control microprocessors for robust and smooth system operation, as well as some of the latest state-of-the-art audio-grade circuit components to produce the best sound possible.

The MA8950's 200 Watts per channel are delivered by a pair of the famous McIntosh Autoformer™ and is enough power to properly drive virtually all loudspeakers. The unique design of the Autoformer guarantees your speakers will always receive the full 200 Watts regardless if they have 2, 4 or 8 Ohm impedance.

Nova III Features

This model is capable of creating a sound stage that won’t go unnoticed and will make it unique.

WOOD & LEATHER
Just like the cabinet sides, the front baffle and the top are made in the walnut or wenge hand-finished natural wood, set in a solid die-cast aluminium plate. Our designers wished to pay homage to the most representative material of Sonus Faber, making it even more of a standard-bearer. The natural leather embellishes the Voice of Sonus Faber, the brand's iconic configuration of tweeter and midrange and enriches the aesthetic rings around the woofers. Genuine Italian leather that, as per our brand's tradition, is applied by hand in the production department in Vicenza.

TWEETER, MIDRANGE & WOOFER
The 28mm silk soft dome tweeter features the DAD technology (Damped Apex Dome) that enhances the smoothness and extension in the high frequency by applying local dampening to the apex typically responsible for anti-phase behaviour of soft dome diaphragms. The DAD structure has been totally redesigned; a solid piece of aluminium die-cast includes both arch and ring on the dome to increase the strength and accuracy of the system. The midrange is completely designed and developed in Sonus Faber laboratories. Its cone is realised cooperating with Kurtmueller and represents the most advanced stage of the traditional Sonus Faber recipe: an air dried non pressed blend of cellulose pulp and other natural fibres: kapok and kenaf. This natural drying process gives the diaphragm a slightly rough surface of varying density and contributes damping and distributing cone resonances while guaranteeing a natural sound, increased transparency and details. The precious phase plug enhances the mid-hi frequencies emission while proudly stating that the Olympica Nova collection is made in Italy. The woofer cone has been developed in cooperation with Kurtmueller and it's based on an exclusive sandwich construction technique: two external layers of cellulose pulp are combined with a layer of hi-tech syntactic foam in between. This low mass and hi rigidity cone construction allows for a perfect reproduction of the low frequencies while guaranteeing absolute tonal coherence with the midrange. This transducer is assembled in Italy.

REFLEX PORT
The solid piece of extruding aluminium that completes the Stealth Ultraflex system, an extremely low-turbulence porting system, is inherited from Homage Tradition models. Favouring the profile of sea waves, the structure facilitates airflow through the duct while controlling its speed and reducing the distortion-causing turbulence.

CROSSOVER
The crossover network implements Paracross Topology, making the crossover less sensitive to radio-frequency interference, improving transient response and lowering noise floor. The filtering topology features new exclusive Clarity Cap capacitors, customised for Sonus Faber.

STRUCTURAL RIGIDITY & SUPPORTS
Similar to the Homage Tradition and Reference Collections, the walls are made with eight layers of blended wood, providing the cabinet with extreme rigidity. Inside the cabinet, carefully placed structural ribs are used as reinforcement to reduce vibration and to handle the overall power of the transducers movement. We have completely redesigned the supports, crafting them from solid aluminium bottom plates with steel spikes, taking inspiration from the Homage Tradition and Reference Collections, to guarantee greater strength and solidity.

The natural leather embellishes the Voice of Sonus Faber, the brand's iconic configuration of tweeter and midrange and enriches the aesthetic rings around the woofers. Genuine Italian leather that, as per our brand's tradition, is applied by hand in the production department in Vicenza.

TWEETER, MIDRANGE & WOOFER
The 28mm silk soft dome tweeter features the DAD technology (Damped Apex Dome) that enhances the smoothness and extension in the high frequency by applying local dampening to the apex typically responsible for anti-phase behaviour of soft dome diaphragms. The DAD structure has been totally redesigned; a solid piece of aluminium die-cast includes both arch and ring on the dome to increase the strength and accuracy of the system. The midrange is completely designed and developed in Sonus Faber laboratories. Its cone is realised cooperating with Kurtmueller and represents the most advanced stage of the traditional Sonus Faber recipe: an air dried non pressed blend of cellulose pulp and other natural fibres: kapok and kenaf. This natural drying process gives the diaphragm a slightly rough surface of varying density and contributes damping and distributing cone resonances while guaranteeing a natural sound, increased transparency and details. The precious phase plug enhances the mid-hi frequencies emission while proudly stating that the Olympica Nova collection is made in Italy. The woofer cone has been developed in cooperation with Kurtmueller and it's based on an exclusive sandwich construction technique: two external layers of cellulose pulp are combined with a layer of hi-tech syntactic foam in between. This low mass and hi rigidity cone construction allows for a perfect reproduction of the low frequencies while guaranteeing absolute tonal coherence with the midrange. This transducer is assembled in Italy.

REFLEX PORT
The solid piece of extruding aluminium that completes the Stealth Ultraflex system, an extremely low-turbulence porting system, is inherited from Homage Tradition models. Favouring the profile of sea waves, the structure facilitates airflow through the duct while controlling its speed and reducing the distortion-causing turbulence.

CROSSOVER
The crossover network implements Paracross Topology, making the crossover less sensitive to radio-frequency interference, improving transient response and lowering noise floor. The filtering topology features new exclusive Clarity Cap capacitors, customised for Sonus Faber.

STRUCTURAL RIGIDITY & SUPPORTS
Similar to the Homage Tradition and Reference Collections, the walls are made with eight layers of blended wood, providing the cabinet with extreme rigidity. Inside the cabinet, carefully placed structural ribs are used as reinforcement to reduce vibration and to handle the overall power of the transducers movement. We have completely redesigned the supports, crafting them from solid aluminium bottom plates with steel spikes, taking inspiration from the Homage Tradition and Reference Collections, to guarantee greater strength and solidity.
