The Illusion loudspeaker is Snell’s flagship model designed by Gerd Schmieta for serious audiophiles. Inspired by the look and feel, the materiality and craftsmanship of musical instruments, the gently curved surfaces and sculpted details express its top
audible performance. Finished in high gloss piano lacquer, the cabinet contrasts nicely with the cast aluminum baffles. A good example of form following (acoustical) function: tapered asymmetrically to minimize resonance within the cabinet, a narrow, rounded top baffle to limit high-frequency corner diffraction and a constant cross-sectional area to maximize cabinet volume.
