Serious describes Serie R. There is a purposefulness and maturity to these offerings that requires decades to achieve. Serie R is that perfect intersection of ultra high-performance and value. Quality and performance is evident everywhere one looks on Serie R; from the billet aluminium backplate, a solid quarter inch-thick, to powerful, yet energy efficient next generation Class D amplifiers, thick die cast alloy frames, and laminated hardwood bracing. Beauty abounds too, in the 9 coats of hand-rubbed lacquer, complex multi-extrusion feet, and taut, disciplined cabinet designs that make the basic cube come alive. Serious performance. Serious beauty.
