In case you have yet to see the latest issue of Stereophile Magazine, I wouldn’t want you to be the last on the block to know what’s going on.
In that latest issue is a two-page color spread showing for the very first time our long-awaited FR-30 loudspeaker.
At 60″ tall it’s not as big as the IRSV it’s pictured in front of, but it’s not small either. The FR-30 features 4 custom designed ultra low distortion long throw 8″ woofers supplemented by 4 10″ side-mounted passive low-frequency radiators. Ribbon tweeter front and back and a 10″ ribbon midrange. No internal amplification, this speaker will light up the room with as few as 100 watts per channel.
It’s been a long time coming. To my eyes and those of the few that have been lucky enough to see them, they’re are a thing of beauty.
Hopefully you can make it to RMAF this year to hear them (and hopefully RMAF actually happens!)
And sonically? Hang on to your hats my friends. Hang on to your hats.
