Richter’s new Mentors feature the same top-line wide-dispersion soft-dome tweeters and 6-inch drivers as the flagship Dragons, offering that extra room-filling ‘oomph’ from a bookshelf model. But the real secret is in the cabinets, whose crossover filter design and cabinet noise reduction techniques culminate in a big, natural dynamic sound. Richter’s Legend Series V is all about the music the sheer magic of your favourite listening delivered in astounding stereo high fidelity. To achieve this, Richter has put their all-Australian know-how into two years of research guided by their philosophy of superior musicality and affordability to develop all-new drivers, electronics and cabinets.
From the top: The soft-dome neodymium tweeters provide wide dispersion, producing a lively and spacious soundstage with smooth musicality, and a response extending well beyond human hearing. The highly efficient 6-inch mid/bass drivers harness composite cones combining the natural acoustic finesse of paper with the strength of modern carbon-fibre technology. This produces ideal damping characteristics plus the coherence and timing essential to draw you into the music. The awesome bass is rich, deep and firm. New crossovers were painstakingly designed and tested by our team of experts to produce emotional vocals, an astonishingly vivid soundstage and a smooth blending of frequencies. The highly stable off-axis response means the Legends maintain realism in a wide spectrum of listening environments – because everyone’s listening room is different. The cabinets have been completely redesigned using non-parallel panels to reduce standing waves, and the comprehensive ‘internal ladder’ bracing is positioned to minimise harmonics. Double thickness rear and front baffles and new high-density damping make these the most neutral and musical cabinets they’ve ever produced.
