The secret to the Definion sound: Patented SCA drivers

The Definion 3S uses the same SCA (Synchronized Coaxial Acoustics) drivers we developed here in Berlin for the original Definion, the flagship model in our hi-fi tower speaker range. SCA technology enables the Definion range to approximate a point sound source. This minimizes differences in propagation time between the midrange driver and tweeter.

The midrange driver and tweeter work as a single driver unit along a common axis. This coaxial arrangement allows all of the frequencies produced by the driver unit to reach the listener’s ear at nearly the same time for a natural sound that faithfully renders the original audio recording.

The advantages of patented SCA drivers at a glance:

  • The sound is perceived by the ear as a single coherent soundstage
  • Improved spatial sound imaging over what a separate tweeter could achieve

Advantages of using a flat membrane for the midrange driver:

  • The flat membrane in no way hinders the sound produced by the tweeter
  • The membrane moves the air along a single plane in a natural way

Precision bass reflex system

A completely redesigned bass reflex systems uses a precision channel that eliminates nearly all of the problems that often occur with bass reflex systems. The precision channel‘s innovative qualities include:
  • A low crossover frequency to the SCA driver
  • The elimination of wind noise though a larger channel size
  • Special constructed molding and curvature of the channel for a deep resonance frequency
The exact dimensioning of the bass reflex channel ensures that the air rushing through it extends the bass range exactly where the woofer’s low end leaves off.

Carbon fiber membrane with a wok woofer

The bass woofer uses a carbon fiber reinforced synthetic membrane, a substance that is very strong, stiff and yet light. A lack of a dust cap gives the wok woofer its distinctive look and name. Together with the precision bass reflex channel, the membrane’s high excursion endows the Definion 3S with a 50 Hz low end – remarkable for a sleek loudspeaker that only measures 14 cm across the back.

The sound: Transparent with plenty of punch

Our acoustic engineers set themselves the goal of creating a loudspeaker with a highly linear frequency response that would do justice to all parts of the frequency spectrum without eliminating the fun factor.

Transparent playback with every genre of music and movie soundtracks is what you can expect along with with powerful bass performance. These sonic attributes makes the Definion 3S a very universal loudspeaker equally adapt at jazz, house music and Zydeco. Whatever you listen to, the Definion 3S will make your music sound like a live concert in your room.

The design: Restrained elegance

Measuring just 14 cm across the back, the loudspeaker’s sleekly tapered design makes an elegant showing in any living space. The high-contrast lacquer finish over the wooden cabinet enhances the overall stylish design.

Simple to set up, easy to expand

Setting up the system is easy: Resonance-dampening rubberized feet are included in delivery. The Definion 3S can also be placed on the stands designed for the Definion 5S.

Due to its high efficiency rating, the Definion 3S works well with even inexpensive amplifiers that supply at least 40 watts per channel. Of course, the same rule applies here as to all loudspeaker/amplifier combinations: The better the amplifier, the better the Definion 3S will sound.

The Definion 3S can be used as rear speaker in a surround setup with the Definion 3 in front.

Risk free audio: Test the Definio 3S at home for up to 8 weeks

The true test of a loudspeaker is how it sounds in your own home, not in some electronics or hi-fi store. That’s why we offer the option of returning our loudspeakers up to 8 weeks after purchase.

Should you decide to keep the Definion 3S, you’ll benefit from an up to 12 year guarantee.
