Care Orchestra – Celestial Rose

 

Video Review

 

 

 

Care Orchestra – Celestial Rose . We are here presenting a pair of Care Orchestra loudspeakers, model Rose, that are part of the Celestial line. This pair is the most recent of the Divina Minorthat we presented last month. These are also stand loudspeakers, with good quality components and a different cabinet, and still have a lovely aesthetic design.

The structure of the unit of the Rose is purposely rounded and well connected to the rear part. The cabinet is very rigid and dull, created in MDF with internal inserts in larch and the internal acoustic absorber is made of cork and polyurethane ashlar. The structure is well finished; in the video you can see a silver metal flaked finishing, but all the colors of the RAL scale are available.

The technique

The Rose are a two-way stand with the rear connection hole placed in an offset position and come with a pair of excellent connectors for the power cable. These loudspeakers are thought to be placed in small-sized rooms, since the transducer for low frequencies has a small diameter and is inserted in a contained working volume. Consequently, the response in low frequency will be limited. The crossing between the midwoofer and the tweeter is well made and is placed slightly under 3,000 Hz.

A dome Vifa tweeter in a very good quality textile and neodymium magnet and a 12 cm treated paper midwoofer of the Prestige series of Seas was used to produce this two-way. The loudspeakers have a specular symmetry, with the unit that, if you see it from the side, it looks like a truncated pyramid, so as to reduce the resonances to the minimum.

The components of the cross over have high level condensers and resistances; Care Orchestra did not economize on either the cross over or the transducers. The internal cables are of high quality as well; specifically they are Van den Hul in OFC silver plated copper.

We thought it interesting to mark the main differences between the two stand models of this Italian company. They perform differently and also have different prices, which depend on different components: the respective tweeters are similar, but their woofers, the cabinets and the rear connectors are quite different. The unit of the Divina Minor, despite its higher structural simplicity, has a considerable deafness, more litres and an extraordinary elegance.

The system used for testing

The digital source is Intarface model AV-Analog provided with a converter that takes files from external HD. Then, the signal passes to an integrated solid state, the Bladelius model Tyr of 120 watt per channel, that alternates with a tube integrated, Almarro, model A318A of low power (18 watt per channel) but fits our test. Finally, we also adopted an analogic source for the comparison between analogic and digital.

The listening test

The listening test takes place in the smallest room of the Vintage Hi Fi Club, because these loudspeakers, due to their design, are fit for small rooms. The musicality of these loudspeakers led us to the following considerations. The first concerns combinations: given the timbre setting of the tweeter we have seen that the Rose prefer transparent voice and strong width in the high range. A timbre direction can be given by the choice of the cables, that should be easily set up. Since for the interior Van den Hul silver plated copper cables have been used, it could be possible to keep on using them for the exterior as well.

These considerations are due to the fact that we perceived an always relaxing and never biting sound in high range.

The Rose are ideal loudspeakers to reproduce trios and quartettes, of jazz, rock and classical music, and since they are thought to give their best in acoustic ensembles, they have the prerogative to have a globally neutral timbre, with a light preference for mid range. The latter results to be warm, mellow and fascinating. This parameter was very much affected by the alternation between the tube and the solid state. This demonstrates the quality of the product. Due to their modest sensitivity (84,5 dB), the dynamics need a certain power supply to be expressed at their best. Care orchestra recommends a prudent value of maximum 60 Watt per channel, but we have seen that using an integrated of 120 watt per channel, the physycal dimensions of the loudspeakers disappear and a really involving soundstage is recreated. The full woofer potential allows for dynamics to be expressed in a very convincing way.

The scene reconstruction takes advantage of the same, while the instruments are well placed on the stage; the voice is correctly focused (speakers should be carefully placed) and all the performers are easily distinguishable.

Conclusions

The Celestial Rose are surely quality loudspeakers, with a sonic personality that must be supported by the correct combinations of electronics and cables. They are thought for small rooms and they are ideal for the reproduction of classical music. Thanks to their silky and not tiring sonic setting they will give to the user who is looking for a product of refined Italian acoustic tailoring long and pleasant listening experiences.
