Originally designed as a monitor for a top recording studio, the Legacy Studio HD offers unmatched clarity and dynamics in a compact enclosure. Don’t let its size fool you. The Studio HD is a butt kickin’ compact monitor featuring an 8” Silver/Graphite bass/midrange driver and a 1” dual pole AMT folded ribbon.
The sound is open and airy, yet a kick drum “feels” like a kick drum. Vocals are robust and effortless. You can hear lungs fill with air before the first note is sung.
Studio HD excels as both a left and right main speaker, as well as a surround speaker for Atmos® systems. Coupled with the Metro XD subwoofer, Studio HD offers a building block approach to true high-end audio.
The Studio HD cabinet is constructed of 1.125" MDF and is available in a wide variety of décor friendly finishes, such as the premium Black Pearl, shown here.
“If you’re a foot-tapping fanatic of pace, rhythm, and timing, this might be the loudspeaker of your dreams.” Herb Reichert, Stereophile
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 SE & Aeris floor-standing speakers.
8” Proprietary Woofer
Studio HD features a proprietary 8” woven Silver/Graphite bass/midrange driver with a cast basket. The woofer is crossed over at 2.8kHz and a phase plug is implemented to prevent acoustic interference across the larger surface area of the driver. Thanks to extra deep tuning of this ultra-efficient driver, the Studio HD keep perfect rhythm down to the lowest note on the bass guitar- E 41 Hz.
The rear terminal plate of the Studio 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.
