One of the reasons we were so excited to launch the aspen line of loudspeakers was a simple problem. Over the past 50 years we've never been able to recommend to customers an affordable speaker that meets all of our standards.

What are those standards? Revealing, exciting, and pleasurable.

Every time we found an affordable loudspeaker that was revealing it turned out to be fatiguing. Or, the opposite. Pleasurable without revealing. And on the rare occasions we found both it was not exciting.

In fact, the only speakers we could find all three traits were in ultra expensive speakers like the Infinity IRSV, or my custom built one-of-a kind Magneplanar system.

No single affordable speaker could match all the parameters of what made music such a joy to listen to until Chris Brunhaver walked through the door and convinced us it was not only possible, but that he could pull this rabbit out of the proverbial hat.

From the upcoming FR5s to the 10s, 20s and 30s, aspen proves you can have your cake and eat it to.

Just sayin'.
