More Loth-X

The folks at Loth-X, voted my best sound of show at the WCES '98, are now are offering a very affordable line of speakers called the Ion 1,2 and 3 (top-most photo).  The entire line of speakers use a 1" silk-dome tweeter and 6" paper cone woofer.  In fact all three speakers also have a very high sensitivity rating of 94db/w/m!  The difference within the models is mainly the cabinet design/size.  To the right is the Ion 1 ($400 pair USD) measuring 29.5mm x 21mm x 32mm (HxWxD).  In the center is the Ion 2 ($600 pair USD) at 39.65 x 21.71 x 31) and lastly to the far left is the floorstanding Ion 3 ($800 pair USD) at 90 x 25.75 x 32.  These Loth-X dudes are really onto something here.  Ch-ch-check them out!

On the lower-most Loth-X photo to the right (in lighter wood) is the Bard and it uses the Lowther PM2A magnet. The rest of the driver is totally handmade/customized by the dudes at Loth-X and is claimed to go down to 20 Hz.

In the same room as the Clearaudio Mater Reference turntable, Transparent cables and Goldmund gear were the Wilson Maxx speakers.  For those who haven't seen the very high resolution panorama (575k) of the very first introduction of these speakers, please click here for the fun.


Acoustic Research Room
Acoustic Research Room

Yes, surround sound demos were in quite a few rooms. Sony had theirs, Yamaha had theirs, and AR had this room which also featured their new AR1 ($3,200) floorstanding speaker. This floorstander uses one 1" titanium-dome tweeter flanked above and below with 5.25" midrange drivers. For woofer duties, a side-mounted 15" Bob Carver/Sunfire 500 watt amplifier with active low frequency equalization is also included.  Also seen here is AR's very new center channel speaker. No pricing set on it at this time.
