High Back EMF
All XT-Series Cinema Ribbons share a specialized ribbon tweeter. At only 6 inches tall it boasts nearly 10 feet of ribbon material. Notice the faint lines in this picture? Each of those is a pass of the ribbon through the neodymium magnet's field. The numerous windings allow Cinema Ribbons to project an enormous soundstage while fitting in the palm of your hand. The golden sheen you see on the ribbon is from its coating of Kapton - a lightweight material that allows it to play at very high volume without overheating.
A unique property of the Cinema Ribbon is its narrow vertical dispersion. This greatly reduces unwanted ceiling and floor bounces, improving imaging and creating a more believable soundstage.
Ebonized Rosewood Cabinet
Ebonized Rosewood Cabinet
Like fine art, you have to see it in person to truly appreciate the beauty of our Ebonized Rosewood finish. The spectacular result comes complements of 11 coats of hand-applied lacquer. It all begins with 5 'base' layers that are each applied by hand and then sanded before applying the next coat. Next comes 6 'finishing' layers that are hand-polished between each coat. Each base layer can take up to 2 days to complete and each finishing layer up to 3 days. Each cabinet receives the watchful eye of a Quality Control technician before passing final inspection. If we put this much effort into our cabinets, just imagine how seriously we take the product's performance.
Cinema Ribbon Duo® Loudspeaker - CRM-2
Have you ever experienced a speaker that thinks about the physiology of your ear-brain processing system? Introducing the Cinema Ribbon Duo®, a 400 Watt, powerhouse that delivers the clarity and output of a 6-foot tall speaker–yet stands about 8-inches tall.
The story of the Duo’s amazing performance is a tale of two technologies. First: Sunfire’s unique and patented High Back-emf design that lets extremely loud sound take place within a very small cabinet. How loud? Well, the Duos feature a pair of our 4.5" side-firing woofers that deliver an incredible 115dB of output from the smallest cabinet in their class!
Second is Sunfire’s remarkable and patented Sonic Hologram Imaging that makes significant corrections to the fundamental flaws in today’s CDs and DVDs. Incorporated into the world’s finest electronic products, the Cinema Ribbon is the first speaker ever to offer the dramatic benefits of Sonic Hologram Imaging by combining the output of the two 4.5” side-firing woofers and the sound launched directly forward by the 6” ribbon tweeter. This research in not only what we hear, but how we hear it, “fools” our brains into hearing an enormous “sonic hologram”. As alluring as the Duos might be, we warn you - they’re not for the faint of heart.
