Amphion Argon 7LS
Amphion Argon 7LS
The Amphion Argon 7LS floorstanding loudspeaker is the new front-runner in Amphion’s Argon family of high-end home audio speakers. The newcomer will replace the Argon 7L model, incorporating the passive radiator design used in the Argon 3S and Argon 3LS.
Just like all Amphion loudspeaker models, Argon 7LS uses the company’s signature approach to crossover design. The crossover is placed at 1600 Hz, which is located outside the most sensitive human hearing range, allowing the use of the tweeter in that area, where our hearing is most perceptive. This way the speakers perform as point-sources, solving the problems we generally experience with coaxial or dual concentric designs, where the tweeter is housed in the moving “waveguide” i.e. the woofer. The specifically designed waveguide creates an even dispersion, allowing you to immerse into a room-wide sweet spot.
The passive radiators eliminate the known problems associated with reflex cabinets, where the correct signal is always followed by an unwanted tail. The new Argon 7LS design creates a more natural energy transfer, providing the listener with an improved physical connection to the music, even on lower listening levels.
Amphion’s acoustic design together with the unique approach to crossover implementation, have proven their value in some of the finest recording, mixing, mastering and post-production facilities around the globe. The Argon 7LS loudspeaker uses very similar technologies, fine-tuned for home use, which make it the perfect alternative for those who want to experience their recordings as the producer and artist intended.
