Anat™ III Brochure
Anat™ III is the third generation of YG Acoustics™’ award-winning large-format speaker line, handmade in U.S.A. Innovations in the current version include, first and foremost, breakthrough drivers machined in-house, and proprietary toroidal air-core crossover inductors. These enhancements result in ultra-low distortion, while preserving the industry-leading frequency and phase response that YG Acoustics™ is famous for.
The bass and midrange units are made in-house using YG Acoustics™’ proprietary BilletCore™ technology: the drivers are precisely machined out of massive slabs of aircraft-grade aluminum. This unique process offers overwhelmingly superior dynamics, musical delicacy and low distortion due to industry-leading rigidity and accuracy (tight tolerances).
The tweeter incorporates YG Acoustics™’ ingenious ForgeCore™ system: in-house CNC-cutting introduces sophisticated 3D geometries into the motor system. The resulting improvement is greatly reduced distortion and a sense of ease to the sound.
YG Acoustics™ crossover circuits are all created using proprietary software developed entirely in-house. DualCoherent™ technology provides the best frequency response and relative phase available. Competing speakers are optimized in either the frequency domain (most common) or time domain. Only YG Acoustics™ has the ability to optimize both domains simultaneously.
Anat™ III’s crossover uses ToroAir™ technology: in-house CNC-wound toroidal air-core inductors are unique in eliminating cross-talk (cross-contamination) common in crossover circuits. The result is preservation of high-frequency detail without harshness, brightness or sibilance.
The powered bass-modules (subwoofers) use amplifiers custom-designed for the specific impedance curves of their respective drivers. The reduced need for negative-feedback improves transients while retaining tight-fisted control.
Anat™ III’s mighty cabinet is constructed of precision-machined aircraft-grade aluminum alloy. This material, using vibration-free pressurized assembly, allows for the most acoustically desirable enclosure available. Unique to the Anat™ and Sonja™ lines is the use of a multi-layered structure optimized for each module’s specific frequency range. This ensures the lowest vibration achievable, even at extreme volume levels.
FocusedElimination™ anti-resonance technology keeps mechanical losses lower than any competing speaker, by combining the minimized turbulence of a sealed design with the low friction otherwise associated with enclosure-free concepts.
YG Acoustics™ speakers are not voiced. All measurements are verified using extensive listening tests, but the speakers are not artificially manipulated. YG Acoustics™ speakers simply convey the recording – nothing more, nothing less.
The end-result: Anat™ III sets benchmarks in transparency, 3D-soundstaging, dynamics, bandwidth, inner-detail, and the natural sound of a live performance that YG Acoustics™ is famous for. This is all presented in a speaker with an exquisite fit-and-finish that is the showpiece of the world’s finest listening environments.
Anat™ III is available in four fully modular configurations, each of which can be expanded to the next at any time, without the need to replace existing modules:
• Anat™ III Main Module – an ultra-high-end compact speaker.
Available with or without a matching stand.
Also available in a special center-channel configuration with a horizontal orientation.
• Anat™ III Studio – an ultra-high-end medium-sized floorstanding speaker.
Consists of Anat™ III Main Module perched atop the matching Anat™ III Studio Sub.
• Anat™ III Professional – an ultra-high-end large floorstanding speaker.
Consists of Anat™ III Main Module, Anat™ III Studio Sub and Anat™ III Professional Sub.
• Anat™ III Signature – the culmination of the Anat™ III line.
Universally acclaimed as one of the world's finest cost-no-object speakers.
Existing Anat Reference™ (1st-generation or 2nd-generation) loudspeakers can be upgraded at any time to Anat™ III status. The products are all field-upgradeable, in a matter of hours and for a fraction of the cost.
Anat™ III is fully compatible with multi-channel audio and home-theater systems. Anat™ III speakers can also be combined with speakers from YG Acoustics™’ other lines for properly phase-coherent multi-channel systems.
