What is stereo?

There are now two system of high fidelity, monophonic (monaural) and stereophonic. Monophonic is a system that starts from one microphone and is fed through a single high fidelity set. Stereophonic is a double system. Two separate microphones are placed at different sides of the orchestra and two different systems are used to keep the two signals or channels separated. Two separate speakers are used, placed on different sides of you room. Stereo is much like 3-D photography, two slightly different sound reach your ears giving you a new dimension in sound.

Zingali Wfp & Bfp

Omniray® Horn is the distinguishing feature of all Zingali's creations assuring the utmost quality in sound reproduction. It is the most notable element of the enclosure and the company's pride.
The horn history at Zingali starts in the 80's with a traditional bi-radial model in wood, the forerunner of what would become the emblem of the company. It was used in the 8800 Studio Monitor line. Since the release of the first line of studio monitors Giuseppe Zingali kept on with his research in the field of horn acoustics trying to improve the quality of mid-high frequencies reproduction. He has analyzed the conventional circular exponential horn whose axial length is greater than its maximum diameter. Being its drawbacks like causing colorations and beaming effect in the high frequencies well known, Giuseppe Zingali tried to improve the sound emission by optimizing horn shape and proportions through numerous calculations and tests. The studies were concluded in 1995 and the idea that became the future of the company was the circular wooden horn of a particular shape now patented worldwide as Omniray ®Technology. The horn is carved of a solid piece of Yellow Poplar. Its curve characteristics and throat depth guarantee the most accurate reproduction of medium-high frequencies available today. The circular shape of the horn allows 360° radiation of sound with an angle of dispersion of up to 140°. The horn curve is not fully exponential but consists of parts described by specific formulas. Each part is “responsible” for the quality of reproduction of a certain frequency range. Together with the relatively short throat depth this allows to balance frequencies in the region from 500 Hz to 20 kHz within the limits of ± 1.5 dB.
When you look at a Zingali loudspeaker, its hand crafted wooden cabinet and the wooden horn in particular, you can't but think it's a kind of musical instrument. Traditionally many musical instruments are made of wood that normally is the key to the magic sound of a piano, a violin or a lute. Things have not changed since the times when these instruments were created. No matter how far the technology goes, a piano rim made of anything different from wood just has no sense. The Zingali loudspeakers are “alive” thanks to such a noble material as wood and natural colors of coating that emphasize its charm.
Omniray® Technology unites in harmony the geometry, materials and dedication of a true audio enthusiast to assure outstanding sensitivity of loudspeakers, improved dynamics and sound transparency. The optimum horn shape provides enough efficiency typical for horns but without distortions. Thanks to their sensitivity our loudspeakers can be matched perfectly even with low power valve amplifiers. They deliver striking clearness of sound and articulation even on low volume. The sound is detailed and true to the original no matter what musical genre you prefer. The typical characteristics of Zingali loudspeakers is the effect of performer's presence in the room be it voice or an orchestra.
