The following is a press release issued by Legacy Audio.
May 14, 2015 - Experience the West Coast debut of the new Legacy V speaker system at T.H.E. Show Newport. The new V from Legacy Audio is a groundbreaking high performance speaker system that unites perfect timing with incredible design.
The system is the first to include the Legacy Wavelet processor. Wavelet is a preamp, a four-way crossover with time alignment, complete speaker and room resonance correction, and a high-end DAC with apodizing ability. The Preamp and DAC can also be bypassed at the touch of a button. Wavelet debuts the revolutionary Bohmer acoustic processing to optimize the loudspeaker/room acoustic transfer function in both the frequency and time domains. Working with new algorithms, it starts with a psychoacoustically based measurement method with the provided calibrated microphone. Alignments are then individually optimized with an unprecedented 40ms window by way of a wireless iPad, smart phone or computer. The result is an audibly improved transient response that allows the V system to operate accurately and consistently in any listening environment.
The Legacy V is the first system to use the new dual 4” long Legacy AMT neodymium tweeters, arranged in a specially optimized post convergent array that masterfully presents treble which extends up to 30kHz. Building upon the advances first developed for the award winning Aeris speaker system, V features open air dual 14” carbon/pulp drivers delivering detailed and spacious midrange and midbass.
Legacy Chief Designer, Bill Dudleston, integrated a 12” aluminum bass driver boasting a massive magnetic structure with another 12” aluminum very low frequency radiator which drives three 10” mass loaded pneumatic radiators. The result? Unprecedented excursion at the longest wavelengths with superior dynamic response. The V speaker system even shapes low frequencies into a cardioid pattern to avoid room coloration. The low frequencies are amplified by the included 1,500 Watts of the latest generation of ICEpower® amplification.
The intricately crafted V cabinet features real wood veneer, a gloss baffle, and machined aluminum trim. The elegant design is highlighted by a gentle illumination from within the center of each tower- complimenting the groundbreaking performance technology within the V speaker system. The latest speaker in the Handcrafted Master’s Series, the Legacy V redefines the possibilities of high performance speaker systems.
V System MSRP- $49,500
