    Characteristics and Sound Properties
    NANO, Visaton's magic baby, has been revamped. In this new version, the rear-mounted tweeter has been dispensed with and the crossover unit adapted accordingly. This has enabled improvements in the natural quality of voice reproduction. In addition, the NANO is now far less susceptible to changes in position, especially the distance between the speakers and the wall. It is now possible to integrate them without loss of quality in bookshelves.

    If you combine the NANO SAT MK II with the matching NANO SUB, you get a speaker system that is totally living-room friendly consisting of tiny satellites and a compact subwoofer which, all-in-all, sounds like a far larger, uncompromising column speaker set-up.

    Extract from Hobby HiFi: "The NANO system demonstrated clearly in the HOBBY HiFi test chamber that it music is a thing to be enjoyed. The response was extremely lively. But there was not the slightest hint of overdone effects..." "Particularly impressive was the dynamism that the subwoofer satellite system is evidently capable of. Anyone would agree that the bass unit has excellent level accuracy, but the satellites left us gasping for breath." "NANO is the solution where you want loudspeakers that are smaller than small." ... "However, you will not need to compromise sound quality: this speaker system can take its place at the top of the quality range."

    First, glue up the upper and lower halves of the satellites separately and drill or saw the openings, as appropriate. The central part of the board for the intermediate frame is also cut out. Next, the two halves of the cabinet can be glued to the frame. The two 15 x 15 mm pieces are cut across diagonally for the corners and also glued in place. The grilles must fit over these corners later (two each at front and rear). A small section of the wrapped edge of the grille over the terminal connections has to be carefully removed using pliers to allow a passage for the cables.

    The short bass reflex tubes are cut to size from aluminium tubing (available in DIY shops) and stuck in place with silicon mastic or hot-melt glue in the spaces allotted. The cabinets are so small that it is impossible to screw on the PCB's for the crossovers. They are simply rolled up in damping wool and placed inside the cabinet.


    Internal Damping
    Two small pieces (around 5 x 5 cm) of damping material are cut off the main piece intended for the subwoofer and one placed in each of the upper and lower chambers. A further small piece, only the size of a thimble, is placed in the bass reflex tubes and stuck in place with a little glue. See diagram below.
