This special edition dedicated to the siege of Turin in 1706. While keeping the versatility with the detachable wiring, it is further enhanced  adding powerful neodymium magnets for explosive dynamic performance. This version shows the Turin plant under the siege of the French in the year 1706. Defensive geometries take shape on the surfaces of this headset making the unique styling on the headphone cups.

 

Andrea Ricci  has succeeded in inserting the Spirit design synthesis, as it evolved  in these years, into a compact and light frame.
The Superleggera offers a lively and dynamic sound with a pinch of warmth on the voices together with a great versatility.
Easy to drive and suitable for any musical genre, it can be the professional’s tool like as well as the headphone for the advanced enthusiast.

THE MOST LOVED BY PROFESSIONALS

Versatile, comfortable, and identity-friendly, the Superleggera has made the working day of many sound professionals a pure pleasure, offering a winning package for those working in radio broadcasting, for those performing live or in the recording studio as a post-production monitor.

In the Spirit catalogue the Superleggera has always brought a smile at first first listening for its ability to overwhelm the listener with a lively and passionate sound.

Those who consider the fun factor a priority will find in the Superleggera an irreplaceable partner.

A PROJECT IN CONTINUOUS EVOLUTION

At Spirit we think of the customer as a gentleman driver, to be followed in his musical refinement path, offering an upgrade service that guarantees to our customers the preservation of their investment.
The continuous dialogue between company and customers has allowed us to introduce significant upgrades, such as the Alcantara (R) pad and the VPS (Ventilation Pad System) that opens to a responsible My-Fi, making an advanced design, for the first time, fully exploitable even by non-professional users.

      DRIVERS 

      The engine of a Spirit headset could only be exceptional, the base unit is built to our specifications by the drive wizard Jaco Burger and then prepared in Spirit depending on the destination with a series of vibration damping interventions, variation of the ventilation and magnetic enhancement parameters.
      The optimization of the aerodynamic flows and the elaborate composite structure allow to reproduce the musical message with extreme tonal fidelity.

      INERTIAL ALUMINUM FRAME


      SPIRIT Turin TWIN PULSE

      The inertial frame of Spirit provides a combination of an anticorodal aluminum structure made from solid with an anti-resonant Dynamat TM and anti-reflective treatment for the internal chamber, in order to make it completely inert to the stresses of the drive.
      This design approach optimizes the focus of the soundstage and eliminates coloration added to the reproduced sound due to interactions between materials.

      The weight of the frame is carefully calibrated to support the thrust of the drive, maximizing the dynamic efficiency of the headset.

      PADS DEVELOPED WITH DEKONI

      In a headphone, the pad has a fundamental function because it delimits the chamber in which the sound takes shape to reach our ear, but it is also the element of contact with our head, so its design must include technical / acoustic aspects. and comfort.

      The Spirit Pads are made with a combination of fine leather and Alcantara to offer superior breathability and comfort.

      Each pad also provides for a careful study of the channeling of the pressure discharge flows to make the drive workload symmetrical in compression and decompression of the chambers.

      Ventilation Pad System (VPS)


      Spirit Torino Hi-Fi Ventilation Pad System VPS headphones

      For the first time, a variable front pad ventilation system is used on the Spirit range.
      This system has two distinct purposes.
      The first is to project the perception of the soundstage out of your head.
      The second provides for the possibility of partializing the ventilation surface, closing ducts and inserting a filter in the pressure compensation duct.
      The partialization of these surfaces allows you to configure the headset in three different ways.
      NB: for Super Leggera available in a single configuration.

      AUDIOPHILE MOD
      This configuration foresees all open ducts and maximizes the perception of details, the opening of the sound stage and the control of the low range.
      It is also particularly suitable for valve amplification.

      MASTER REFERENCE
      This configuration has been designed for those who essentially want to listen to the disc without modifications or those who work with music and need a very faithful timbre.
      In this configuration the filter is inserted in the compensation duct and makes the low range more full-bodied, requiring an amplification that favors current driving.

      DEEP BASS
      This configuration with three closed ventilation holes and the filter inserted makes the headphones more isolated towards the outside and makes the low range even more dynamic and suitable for use in environments with high background noise.
      Ideal for rock and electronic genres with live effects.

      SPIRIT TORINO SAYS NO TO HYPER REALITY

      Most of the "audiophile" headphones of the last period are looking for a spectacularization of the sound made of "sparkling" high frequencies, artificially enhanced bass and sound stages forced to the extreme, obtained through a pre-equalization of the headphones.
      This style of sound does not respect the soul of the music and predisposes the listener to hear the music at a lower volume than the real event, preferring a "clinical" rather than natural listening.

      WIRING

      We have created specific wiring for the different fields of use.
      The Standard and Torino 1706 fittings include detachable cables made in collaboration with Portento Audio that combine lightness and flexibility.
      All termination standards on the market are available and a dual section version can be chosen to improve performance with high current amplifiers.

      Detachable harness can be configured to further customize the sonic signature

      The Ragnarr set -up and all Twin Pulse instead, mount uncompromising wiring that is soldered to silver directly on the drive avoiding two welds and a contact point for optimal current transfer.
      The cabling includes a 4-pole braid of coaxial cable with a quadruple section compared to that usually used in headphones.
      Connectors and sheaths of the best quality complete a high-end construction destined to last over time.


      MADE IN ITALY

      The semi-closed architecture of the Mistral offers greater safety for those who use the headphones outdoors and guarantees a three-dimensional audio sensation.
