(Springfield, IL) Join Legacy in Evergreen Ballroom A at Rocky Mountain Audio Fest to hear the new Calibre monitor, a high resolution speaker that raises the performance bar for what a compact speaker can do. Calibre is designed to meet and exceed the stringent high performance standards of recording studio professionals and bring a new level of resolution to audiophiles in a compact design.
Legacy Chief Engineer, Bill Dudleston, on the development of the latest Legacy Audio offering:
"I had but one thing in mind with Calibre- to build the highest resolution compact speaker available anywhere. Merely three inches taller than our Studio HD, it uses our high power handling 4" AMT ribbon, a precision 7.5" custom midrange/midbass built in Florence, Italy and the best 8" bass driver available with a full inch of displacement capability. Offering extreme dynamics and wide bandwidth, the clarity is the best I’ve ever heard in a compact design. While efficient, it is designed to sail along with 500 watt peak inputs. Legacy has always been known for our huge soundstage- but this time it’s coming from a small box."
Cailbre is a very high density pacakge, weighing in at 50lbs each. This mass is owing to the enormous drive motors and a 1.75" thick front baffle. Two 8" mass loaded acoustic radiators are mounted on opposing sides to eliminate port noise and cancel resonance.
Calibre is currently available for order and will begin shipping November 2016. It is available in a wide variety of decor friendly wood veneer finishes and includes a premium Black Pearl front baffle.
