Rosso Fiorentino Fiesole

Model: Fiesole
Manufacturer: Rosso Fiorentino
Category: Speakers
Subcategory: Monitor
Fiesole, one of RF's cornerstones on the way to reproducing reality, is a reference stand-mount system that employs state-of-the-art components installed in an originally styled cabinet, specially designed for top acoustic performance. The 6.5-in Nomex woofer is held in place by means of a vibration-damping system. This feature allows an efficient control of structure-borne vibration, resulting in authoritative, sharp and controlled low frequencies. Fiesole comes standard with a ribbon ultrasonic generator which perfectly complements the smooth and detailed 28mm hand-treated silk dome tweeter, starting to function at around 22 kHz and going all the way up to 100kHz. The resulting wide-bandwith performance great enhances the "atmosphere" and naturalness of the reproduced sound, giving it a truly three-dimensional quality. These transducers are made to combine through the use of a complex and refined crossover circuit made of meticulously selected components. Special attention also went into the structure of the enclosure. Fiesole was the first RF speaker to implement the concept of using mechanically different materials to render the cabinet incredibly still and inert. Aluminum, high density fibreboard (HDF), viscoelastic elastomers, steel, all combined together to create a solid basis for great dynamics and vivid sound. The Fiesole is a must for the true audiophile who can now bring superb, breathtakingly realistic sound even to small listening rooms.
