- Performance Collection
Classic HD is designed from the ground up to deliver amazing sound. Great as a front pair in home theater applications; exacting enough for the most critical audiophile. Highs are sweet and clear, vocals are natural and effortless-free of the thin, compressed nasality so common today. Midbass has punch, and bass is solid and well defined.
The rear terminal plate of the Classic HD features removable copper jumpers to facilitate bi-amping or bi-wiring if desired. The dual binding posts accommodate banana, spade or bare wire connections.
Independent high and low frequency contour switches allow you to adjust the speaker to your room.
The versatile Classic HD cabinetry is as rich and detailed as its sound. Choose from a wide variety of décor friendly finish options.
“I found each listening session with the Legacy Classic HD system to be nothing short of addictively energizing.” Darryl Wilkinson, Home Theater/Sound & Vision
1" Dual Pole AMT
The Legacy 1” dual pole AMT folded ribbon delivers airy and clear highs up to 30 kHz and is the same award-winning Legacy AMT found in the larger Focus & Aeris floor-standing speakers.
The 7” midrange is our own cast frame design, providing a larger radiating surface for reduced distortion and much higher output capability. The diaphragm is our silver/graphite weave. Tucked under the precisely shaped phase plug is a secondary neodymium magnet which concentrates the magnetic field in the voice coil gap. The result is an ultra-smooth response with incredible dynamics.
8" Proprietary Woofer
To keep up with the speed of the midrange and treble, we required two custom 8” bass drivers. We tooled a deep and rugged cast frame with an extra-large mounting surface to allow long excursion and prevent midbass blurring. The cone mass was optimized to provide extended bass without overhang.
Classic HD is the 2020 Recommendation from Polish High End Reviewer, HiFi I Muzyka. “Powerful magnetic systems, cast baskets with wide flanges, bolted with large bolts, are an example of the solidity in American construction.”Read the Review
“Legacy creates a musical reality in an extremely realistic way, and all the key elements that make up the sound associated with high end- space, dynamics, arrangement of depth in the sound field- are at the highest level here.”
