Legacy Studio HD Monitor Speakers



Legacy Audio has been making speakers amongst the cornfields in Springfield, IL for over 20 years. Bill Dudleston (president and founder) and Doug Brown (VP) gave me a tour of their facility last summer which allowed me to see first hand how their speakers are assembled, tested, tuned and shipped. Their top of the line speaker is the Whisper HD and their smallest is the Studio HD which is reviewed here. Though the Studios share some of the same technology as their big brother, would they share some of the same audio characteristics?
