Transrotor Figaro MC
he Figaro cell needs time. And when it has had time, it proves to be an impeccable all-rounder to begin with.
The Transrotor Figaro MC makes us realise that with every new record track it is possible to do a little better in almost every respect.
In concrete terms, this means first of all that a grey haze, which had previously gone almost unnoticed, has been eliminated from the sound image. All acoustic events are clearer, cleaner, finer, more precise and sharper.
Of particular note is the Figaro’s ability to represent sound events accurately and with realistic relationships of size and distance in the respective recording space and to project them into the room in a tangible three-dimensional way.
Another strong point of the Transrotor Figaro is the deep and powerful bass, which remains under control without spilling over, but which has a great inherent energy and defines a striking and powerful basic character right down to the lower midrange.
It serves as a sort of foundation for a very stable and integral sound image, which does not compress, open or unravel, even during the most violent dynamic attacks.
The Figaro thus allows the listener to relax and just listen; he or she can be sure that the Transrotor system will come through without a hitch, no matter what.
