Winner of the 2013 CES Design and Engineering Innovations award, The Sopran is a true testament to the concept of “form follows function” showing that utilizing the latest in technology to seek further than the conventional boxy speaker does not have to boring.
Our R&D team of experts and capable designers set their goals to stretch the boundaries even further than before and engineer a high-end speaker able of recreating the excitement of live music, in a refined visual package that would appeal to a broader audience.
The Sopran 3-way (five drive units) is a combination of creative vision and acoustic physics. Featuring Morel’s most advanced technologies; internal standing waves diffusion shaped the curved carbon fibre composite cabinet enabling no internal absorption material, creating a speaker so transparent and natural that it sounds as if there was no cabinet at all. For tight and controlled bass reproduction a new in-line port technology was developed molding the speaker’s back “spine” appearance for a significantly improved soundstage and realism. Completing the cabinet design are the new innovative Lotus grilles*, that considerably reduce distortion levels usually created by other protective covers.
Leveraging our latest transducer technology we developed new 6-inch drivers utilizing titanium support mechanism that transfers the motor force to the membrane with minimal energy lose to preserve the drama and dynamics of the original sound, creating a tactile musical experience.
