Harmonia Distribution, in collaboration with Fyne Audio, has introduced a new addition to the realm of high-fidelity audio with the unveiling of the SuperTrax supertweeter. Scheduled for release in the United States in April of this year, the SuperTrax represents a paradigm shift in audio design, offering a meticulously crafted solution to complement retro-styled loudspeakers while delivering an exceptional listening experience.

The hallmark feature of the SuperTrax is its patented Radial Dispersion System, which eliminates the narrow focus typically associated with traditional supertweeters. Instead, Fyne Audio's innovative design ensures a 360-degree omnidirectional dispersion, delivering super high-frequency sound in a manner that preserves the harmonics and phase response of the IsoFlare drivers found in Fyne loudspeakers.

At the core of the SuperTrax supertweeter lies a Thin-Ply Carbon Diaphragm (TPCD) ultra-high-frequency driver, which fires downward onto a precision-engineered Tractrix-profile diffuser cone.

This unique configuration transforms the focused output of the HF driver into a radial dispersion, enveloping listeners in a sphere of coherent sound. The result is a heightened sense of tonal accuracy, transient response, and spatial presence, elevating the audio experience to new heights, the company claims.

"While we may not directly perceive sounds above 20,000 Hz, studies have shown that ultrasonic tones do influence our auditory experience," Fyne Audio says in their press release. "The SuperTrax captures this spectrum, ensuring that listeners not only hear the music but truly feel and perceive it."

Positioned atop each loudspeaker, the SuperTrax is carefully crafted to integrate seamlessly with Fyne Audio's Vintage and Vintage Classic speakers, while also compatible with any loudspeaker boasting a flat top surface and sensitivity of up to 98 dB. Moreover, the inclusion of positioning instructions should provide optimal acoustic integration for discerning listeners.

In addition to its impressive design, the SuperTrax is engineered for uncompromising performance. With a frequency response ranging from 16 kHz to an impressive 60 kHz and a maximum recommended amplifier power of 400 Watts RMS, the SuperTrax offers remarkable clarity and precision across the audio spectrum. Moreover, integrated controls allow users to fine-tune the high-frequency output to suit their individual preferences.

Fyne Audio’s technical director Dr Paul Mills says, “Musical instruments emit energy well above 50 kHz , once thought to be beyond our perception. Yet, studies by researchers such as Oohashi and Lenhardt have shown that these ultrasonic tones do influence our auditory experience, even if they’re not directly audible. The SuperTrax captures this spectrum and radiates the HF energy through 360 degrees, ensuring you’re not just listening to music, you are feeling it, perceiving it, and sensing it as well.”

Furthermore, the incorporation of a Thin Ply Carbon Diaphragm (TPCD) enables frequencies to reach up to 60 kHz, which should ensure a linear and extended frequency response without distortion. This, coupled with a ground terminal to prevent radio frequency interference effects, highlights Fyne Audio's effort to deliver a pristine audio experience.

SuperTrax Supertweeter Technical Specifications: 

  • Recommended amplifier power (Watt RMS): 400 (Max)
  • Sensitivity (2.83 Volt @ 1m): Suitable for loudspeakers up to 98dB typically
  • Nominal impedance: 8 Ohm
  • Frequency response (-6dB typical in the room): 16kHz -60kHz
  • Drive unit complement: 25mm (1”) Thin Ply Carbon Diaphragm (TPCD) with a neodymium magnet system
  • Crossover type: 3rd order high pass 16kHz, Cryogenically treated
  • System adjustments: +/- 3dB from the nominal setting
  • Dimensions - HxWxD: 86 x 140 x 257mm (3.4 x 5.5 x 10.1”)

With a retail price of $4,799 per pair, the Fyne Audio SuperTrax supertweeter represents a significant investment for audiophiles. However, with its patented Radial Dispersion System and advanced design, it promises to deliver a truly immersive and exhilarating listening experience for audio enthusiasts around the world.
