Looks like their main website for loudspeakers is finally up!

http://www.canalisaudio.com/

In the support section, there's an article called "What's up with those Animas?" which is a phenomenal read :3

A few puzzling items in that paper. One is this:
Did you know that an upright bass suppress’ it´s deep E (32 Hz) by the same
number 32 in dB? Still you can clearly hear the 32Hz tone.


How did he come up with 32Hz as the frequency for E?

The Animas on the Canalis website lists an f3 of 44hz
The Animas on the Sonics website lists and f3 of 60hz

what's going on there?

I am hoping to listen to some studio ones in London.
I have some source material with subs I am well aware I was mixing hearing only the upper harmonics on some rear ported nearfields with an f3 of 45hz.
I cannot wait to see how much grasp I can get of them on the studio ones (they barely exist on most systems without a sub)
the low end is the big thing for me and I definitely do not want to use a sub (small room)
I cannot escape my mental reference- I want my monitors to sound like the nicest (5k) PA I ever heard having run all night sitting on solid ground in the dip of a small valley - just on a different scale. And I have heard small speakers that satisfied that. But they were very expensive

Likely the bamboo cab, yet call or email Stirling to confirm, at Immedia Sound in Berkeley.

Bottom line, the bass harmonics clearly define the low end via these high excursion drivers and minimalist crossover. No sub needed.

And the more you use them past the break in done here, the better they sound overall.

The bamboo cabs of the Studio One vs. the older Birch Ply cabs of the Anima

Only 2 pair in London so far, both in private studios.

I went with K&H 0300 in the end and I am extremely happy. Had to hear what I was committing to as it's a big investment.
