Rosso Fiorentino Speakers

FLAGSHIP SERIES

Florentia – Floor Standing Speaker

The Flagship series introduces our masterpieces, the toughest challenges we decided to take on in loudspeaker design.

In a field still full of conservatism and mostly curve-shaped designs, the Florentia stand up like a modern architectural monument. Its physical presence and the strength of its straight and angled lines convey a great sense of power and dynamism which is, however, balanced by its precious material and construction details which reveal its noble and refined character.

The Florentia is made up of three individual sections. The upper and lower sealed sections house respectively the mid-bass and bass drive units, while the middle open baffle section contains the midrange and treble drive units and the crossover.

Siena – Floor Standing Speaker

The Flagship series introduces our masterpieces, the toughest challenges we decided to take on in loudspeaker design.

The Siena is a floor-standing system with a strong personality that perfectly illustrates RF’s innate ability to match elegance and performance.
Its unmistakable lines are completed by one of the most sophisticated cabinets ever produced in the field of high-end loudspeakers, which allow the Siena to deliver excellent sound with optimal integration into any living room.

The aluminium cone woofers and paper cone midranges are held in place by means of a vibration-damping system that minimizes transmission of vibrational energy to the baffle.
This feature allows an efficient control of structure-borne vibration, resulting in authoritative, sharp and controlled low frequencies.
Furthermore, the top unit enclosure is decoupled from the lower woofers enclosure by high-tech viscoelastic discs, helping the midrange and tweeter reach the absolute optimum in sound clarity and naturalness.

REFERENCE SERIES

VOLTERRA – Medium Sized Floor Standing Speaker

The Reference series represents the quintessential expression of RF’s design where the concept of elegance, in technology and look, is seen as the key to performance.

Volterra is one of RF’s cornerstones on the way to reproducing reality.

Sharing much of the technology of its smaller sibling the Fiesole, the elegant, 2.5-way compact floorstanding Volterra has an even more authoritative and refined acoustic presence, thanks also to an original acoustic loading design which can be described as a hybrid vented mid-woofer + closed box woofer.

The 6-1/2″ and 8″ Nomex woofers are held in place by means of a vibration-damping system. This feature allows an efficient control of structure-borne vibration, resulting in commanding, sharp and controlled low frequencies.

SPECIFICATIONS

  • Type: 2.5-way rear-ported / close box floorstanding system
  • Sensitivity: 87 dBSpl (2.83V/1m)
  • Nominal impedance: 6Ω (min 3Ω)

FIESOLE – Full Range Stand Mount Speaker

The Reference series represents the quintessential expression of RF’s design where the concept of elegance, in technology and look, is seen as the key to performance.

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.

PRESTIGE SERIES

CERTALDO – Slim Floor Standing Speaker

The subtle blend of sobriety and sophistication, acoustic performance and elegance, the Prestige series includes technical features that meet the requirements of the most discerning music lovers.

The Certaldo is a slim floor-stander whose graceful and clean lines hold a refined and unusual 2.5 way system.

Like its sibling Pienza, the Certaldo features a highly sophisticated enclosure, where a blend of mechanically different materials helps to render the cabinet incredibly still and inert allowing the wonderfully accurate and detailed drivers to operate with utmost clarity and dynamics.

The basic structure of the cabinet is made of composite high density fiberboard with hollowed out compartments filled with tiny chips of marble set in the sides. Friction losses among the chips give rise to a particularly high degree of internal attenuation.

Layers of viscoelastic elastomers are strategically placed inside the cabinet to further absorb panels vibration while steel tension tie-rods firmly connect the aluminum front panel to the back of the speaker for increased rigidity. Two colored safety glass side panels complete the system adding not only a beautiful and unique finishing touch but significantly increased stability.

CLASSIC SERIES

ELBA – Floor Standing Speaker

“Elba, in other words the perfect combination of the technological assets and the experience of Rosso Fiorentino with the desire to create an affordable loudspeaker. Because if, as Plato said, beauty, art and music are teachers of life (Ethics), then these values must be within the reach of as many people as possible, without compromise. For this reason we can say that Elba is a “democratic” masterpiece!” (designer Francesco Rubenni)

THE PROJECT: After years of success and international recognition with its higher range of products, Rosso Fiorentino has decided to work towards creating a high quality line of speakers for a wider audience, encompassing the values and unmistakable style of Rosso Fiorentino. The result is the Classic Series which consists of the models Giglio (standmount), Pianosa (center channel) and the floorstanding Elba. All of these models are a good size without being too big and invasive and have been designed to produce high quality sound and refined finishes which, in other words mean excellent value for money.

With the creation of Elba, Rosso Fiorentino feels that it has achieved its original target of upholding sensitivity to beauty and attention to detail, so typical of the craftmanship of the land where RF is based, and has managed to combine them with the high technology content so characteristic of all projects flowing from the pen of engineer Francesco Rubenni and confirming that balanced yet addictive sound so typical of the family of RF speakers.

This refined speaker is capable of winning the interest of both audiophile and music lover as well as fitting easily into any decor thanks to its elegant design, high quality materials and careful finishing. It was presented in a world preview to the press and the distributors at the Munich High End Show 2015 where it received a warm welcome and much praise from Jonathan Valin senior editor of the prestigious American audio magazine The Absolute Sound.

But the arrival of Elba makes the Classic Series also an excellent choice for the realization of an ambitious home-theater system characterized by a coherent acoustic field and by amazing sonic performances. Their elegant finishes and clean design enable Elba, Giglio and Pianosa to integrate harmoniously in any style of decor.

designed and made by hand in Firenze benefiting from the ancient tradition of this region of Italy where craftsmanship and art are always two sides of the same coin
