Aeris Speaker System
AERIS from Legacy Audio is a speaker system whose striking looks are matched only by its performance capabilities. The system is the first to use the Legacy Dual Air Motion Tweeter (an advanced AMT design) with high power handling and high efficiency, and a titanium encrusted 8" midrange with an enormous motor structure imported from Italy. The bottom end is highlighted by a 10" midbass and dual 12" subwoofers with a linear volume displacement of nearly 200 cubic inches.
The bass section is powered by 1,000 watts of included ICEpower® amplification and offers exceptional extension to 16Hz. The included 24-bit DSP room correction features balanced and unbalanced analog inputs and outputs, level control, and both SPDIF coaxial and USB inputs for optimizing performance. The upper portion of the speaker cabinet is open air dipole for fast decay of mid-bass frequencies and airy spacious highs.
The elegant design employs a 2.25" thick baffle with 2" side walls. LED Crossover Illumination within the upper portion of the cabinet reveals the intricately wired crossover design. Meticulous craftsmanship displays options include a faux leather laminated baffle with copper finish, sapele pommele veneer sides and back, carbon fiber laminated base with a facetted front and sculpted sides.
Chief Designer, Bill Dudleston, describes the development of the new AERIS loudspeaker: "…it gave me the opportunity to tool a new AMT folded ribbon tweeter to integrate with the smoothest, high efficiency 8" midrange built to date. I have yet to find a driver to challenge it. This silky 8" mid has a range of 7 octaves with nary a wrinkle in the response, yet a sensitivity of 98 dB. My initiative of providing a 4" AMT that could compliment these capabilities was met with the challenge of accordion-folding 16 square inches of Kapton into the 4" long, 1" wide chamber. Neodymium again was employed to provide the flux density required. But the solution was made even more elegant by mounting the new 4" ribbon on the same faceplate as its complementary 1" AMT ribbon super-tweeter. The results were more uniform dispersion and tremendous attack. Treble now had weight instead of tizz. A natural fullness in the treble is exhibited, reminding us why we love high-end audio so much."
Like the finest furniture, our cabinets are impeccably finished in select veneers and solid hardwood corner moldings. The Exquisite finishes are hand-rubbed several times to assure a patina that is at home with the most elegant decor. Beneath the surface of each Legacy Speaker lies rigid interlocking joinery. We use acoustically inert PVC in midrange sub-enclosures to avoid the characteristic honding of paper tubes found in conventional enclosures. Polyester fiberfill is selected for internal damping. A sharp rap on the enclosure will leave you with little more than bruised knuckles.
Celebrate with us decades of relentless pursuit of perfection in audio reproduction. A product platform unequalled in terms of aesthetics, build quality, sonic performance and technology.
A passion to advance the field of audio motivated engineer Bill Dudleston to combine his efforts with those of a stubborn Dutch craftsman, Jacob Albright. From a garage amidst the cornfields of the mid-west, they began their remarkable quest. An uncanny understanding of physics and fluid modeling, combined with good old-fashioned hard work and craftsmanship, allowed the team to first produce the renowned Legacy-1. Word soon spread through audiophiles and the press of a little company in Illinois who designed the word’s best loudspeakers.
Legacy continues to build an national and international dealer base while pushing the envelope on acoustic design. Just as in the beginning, our doors are open and all are invited to hear our fine products and see how they are built. We continue to focus on customer service, and still build each pair of loudspeakers as though we were building them for ourselves.
