compact floorstanding loudspeaker with a dynamic and finely detail reproduction
The Nova 2022 is a compact floorstanding loudspeaker with a dynamic and finely detail reproduction that is rarely found in this price class. It can be combined with a variety of transistor and tube amplifiers. This model is the right choice for demanding music lovers who are looking for a compact floor standing loudspeaker that can be integrated into any living space, both technically and stylistically. The Nova 2022 comes with the
iconic Odeon wedge design that makes it a statement piece in every surrounding.
In order to keep the deviations between the channels as small as possible, we use selected components in the crossovers with a maximum deviation of only one percent.
Only non-aging components (film capacitors) are used. The coils used come from Mundorf. In most loudspeakers in the high-end range, the crossovers are built on Pertinax boards and the individual components are connected by conductor wire
paths. In contrast, the Nova 2022 crossovers are wired by hand, soldered point to point and then mechanically secured to prevent movement of the sensitive components and thus reducing negative vibration effects on the crossover components. The point-to-point wiring minimizes electrical transitions in the signal path. What is regarded as a quality feature in high-quality tube amplifiers is rarely implemented in loudspeaker construction as consistently as in ODEON AUDIO products.
The tweeter is a special design by the French manufacturer Audax. The 25mm dome tweeter is manufactured with a copper voice coil and the dome is made from a specially impregnated fabric. The tweeter is insusceptible to distortion and providesoutstanding characteristics in terms of speed and resolution. These qualities are supported by the ODEON AUDIO birch plywood horn. The horn functions as a mechanical amplifier that relieves the tweeter and thus contributes decisively to a relaxed sound character while providing highest resolution.
The low-midrange driver is made by the renowned Danish company Scan Speak. Like the tweeter, this driver is a custommade product outside of normal mass production. By a combination of a handmade and coated cellulose cone with a very fine and flexible rubber surround and fabric centering, this system impresses with an extremely controlled bass and outstanding midrange characteristics unique in this price class. The bass-midrange driver is also refined with a double magnet,
which further increases the magnetic force acting on the voice coil that significantly improves the efficiency and sonic characteristics.
A medium density fibreboard (MDF) is used for the cabinet. Our master craftsmen only use MDF with a particularly high proportion of wood fibers and binding agents, which are compressed under high pressure. This special material avoids disturbing resonances and excludes discoloration effects. The MDF used in the ODEON AUDIO models is up to 1.8 times heavier than conventional MDF and therefore much more
stable. This makes it particularly suitable for sophisticated loudspeaker concepts.
Like the ODEON AUDIO floor standing loudspeakers, the Nova 2022 also uses a downward firing bass reflex system. Thedownward orientation of the reflex tunnels ensures easier acoustic integration into the living room. Every room has socalled room modes as a result, strong bass peaks often occur. The downward firing bass reflex system stimulates these room modes much less than conventional solutions in which the reflex tube faces the rear wall.
The Nova 2022 uses a particularly pure oxidation-free copper cabling (OFC) from German production. The multiple mechanical shielding of the tweeter cable virtually eliminates all microphonic effects. This cable quality is otherwise only used in
recording studios. The loudspeaker binding posts are mounted on acrylic panels
that accommodate the complete crossover, thus enabling a direct connection between terminals and crossover. Large metal connections are deliberately excluded as a carrier material, since this has a negative effect on the function of the crossover
components during operation.
