LX521 - The Reference
The LX521.4 exemplifies the best of 50 years of experimentation about rendering stereo recordings in domestic living spaces.
Designed by Siegfried Linkwitz, free of commercial pressures, aiming for a fully satisfying enjoyment of his favourite music. With the LX521.4 , he has arrived at a level of performance, which makes him search no further.
Neutral sound, clarity, speed, spatial openness and disappearance from one's auditory illusion. It renders a superb recording, probably as good as it gets. A highly enjoyable experience.
The LX521.4 is a 4-way loudspeaker, designed as full-range dipole, for flat on-axis and off-axis response in the horizontal plane and frontal hemisphere. The speakers need breathing room of at least 1 m to the nearest large reflecting surfaces and a room with a minimum floor size of 25 sqm.
- V-frame woofers and baffle supports are dull dark anthracite.
- Bridges and topbaffles colored in individual custom color or made from precious wood MPX-veneer of choice e.g. American Walnut, Cherry, Bubinga, Paduk, Mahagony.
- Panzerholz, Panzerholz/precious veneer and Alu-Panzerholz-Alu topbaffles are available on special request.
- Bridges come with elegant 45deg miters.
The turnkey V-Frame woofers are 33kg each.
To ship the system with all woofer drivers installed, it needs a 130kg airfreight palette. Airfreight cost to the US: usually 800-1200€.
If you select the cheaper parcel shipping (4 parcels, limit:30kg each), the upper woofers will ship in an extra parcel. They need to be inserted after delivery with 8 bolts and nuts.
