Legacy and AVM

The Legacy Whisper XD speakers ($20,500/pr) may be able to whisper, but they also rocked. These large towers, crafted from furniture-grade wood feature 10 drivers including one dual pole folded ribbon Kapton diaphragm tweeter, a second ribbon diaphragm midrange and four 15-inch subwoofer drivers—in each speaker. The speakers also sport 500 watts each of internal amplification.  The speakers were supplied by AVM’s Ovation line of amps and pre amps.

As you’d guess, they sounded spectacular, particularly with vocals that sounded rich and detailed. The image created an invisible presence for each instrument around the room. Very nice.

AVM showed another cool system (but we didn’t hear it)—a new integrated amp (black component in the inset) with three outputs and 8 inputs. It’s completely modular and upgradeable so consumers don’t have to worry about it becoming obsolete.
