"Rarely have we come across a product that sounds so pure and natural"
The Rossini brings together three decades of engineering expertise and a wealth of pioneering technologies in a distinctive, elegant and streamlined design. Drawing inspiration from our Vivaldi range, it offers a unique aesthetic that blends order and precision with artistic expression.
The curves on its façade represent movement, rhythm, life and natural forms - a nod to our emotional connection with music and the sound that inspires us to create - while its understated top and side panels, streamlined controls and ordered rear panel help to aid performance and ease of use.
Each model is encased in aerospace-grade aluminium, a lightweight material chosen for its acoustic properties, and fitted with internal acoustic damping panels to reduce mechanical vibration and magnetic effects. Panels are sculpted using state-of-the-art milling machines and treated with a smooth and durable pearlescent coating.
From the precision engineered casework to the the hardware and software running deep within its core, each aspect of the Rossini has been refined to deliver the purest sound with the lowest possible distortion. Crafted from the finest materials, and built to exacting standards, each system is exhaustively tested and inspected prior to leaving our factory to ensure the utmost quality and reliability.
