It looks like Cessaro have introduced a new model - Omega
I do not know a lot about it but from what I can judge from picture it is the same as the Gamma loudspeaker with the following changes:
1) New LF channels
2) Addition l HF channels in composite vertical array
3) Change the frame allowing the channels to sit on the parabolic curve
4) Introductions an ability for channels to be fine positioned for alignment on the curve
Good changes as far as I concern, now Cessaro feels almost like Macondo, good for them. I do not know if the Cessaro folks read my site and if they come up with those ides them and were inspired by what I do. It does not really important – what is important that Cessaro Omega confirm what I have been pitching for years – there is ONLY one “proper” topology for multi-ways horns. Macondo, Cessaro Omega define it, all the rest are still learning.
A few things that I consider as Cessaro Omega problems:
1) Too large throat diameter of upperbass horn
2) Channels on parabolic curve are angled but I feel that they need to be paralleled.
Sure the LF and UHF channels are unknown topology and the presents of the former Gamma tweeter and new Omega looks a bit dubious. Of course the same TAD drivers, that is a major turn off. Still, if to retrofit Omega with properly selected vintage driver that I feel it might be a very offensive loudspeaker design.
I hope that Cessaro will sell Omega without the bass section. If Gamma cost 150K Euros then most likely Omega would be near 200K Euros. People most likely will pay for it a half price bypassing dealers, still it is lot of money to pay for acoustic system. I am sure that people who would lay down $150K for speakers would have other, better options to do bass charnels then what Omega offers out of box.Rgs. Romy the Cat
