Four Amplifiers in a 2.1 Configuration Yield High-Performance Sound
To deliver maximum performance from a compact enclosure, Sonica has four separate amplifiers set up in a 2.1 stereo configuration. Two 15-watt amplifiers are connected in a bridged mode to drive the 3.5" bass woofer and two 3" bass radiators with a combined power output of 30 watts. Two additional amplifiers, 10-watts each, power a stereo pair of 2.5" wideband drivers. Utilizing a 2.1 stereo configuration is a time-tested approach that allows for the best possible performance.
Unique Bass Radiators for True Low-End Reproduction
The bass radiators utilized in Sonica are unique for a product in this price category and further improve performance. The two complementary bass radiators are located on each side of the enclosure opposite each other. Not only do they enhance the bass response, they also cancel unwanted vibrations in the speaker enclosure. This ensures Sonica remains stationary without rattling and shaking when music is played at very high volumes.
Custom-Tuned Sonica Features Optimized Amplifier-Driver Matching
Audio systems require very careful design and optimization, and OPPO's engineering team meticulously considered all aspects of audio reproduction and customers' sound preferences in order to make Sonica a great-sounding, reliable, and easy-to-use companion for music lovers. The speaker drivers, amplifiers, and chassis are expertly tuned for deep, pure, and engaging sound. The amplifiers in Sonica are specially designed for each of the speaker drivers, and all of the drivers are optimally integrated using a Digital Signal Processor (DSP) and are individually driven via electronic crossovers that are carefully tuned to achieve the best sound balance.
Flexibility Extends to Multi-Room and Stereo Pairing Configurations
Add more Sonica speakers to your home and enjoy music wherever you want. With the Sonica app, you are in the conductor's seat deciding what music is streamed to each speaker. You can group the speakers to play the same music in sync, or enjoy a different listening experience around every corner. Two Sonicas can also be set up as a stereo pair. In this mode, Sonica delivers improved channel separation, a larger sound stage, and even more power than using a single speaker.
Built-In Room-Optimization Presets
One of the most challenging problems for optimizing speaker sound is speaker placement. Rooms have a very significant influence on a speaker's sound and in some cases the room environment can have a negative impact on the sound from the speaker. Sonica features built-in presets for optimizing the sound for different room sizes, speaker locations, and listening preferences.
