The Richter Griffin is a high-performance centre channel speaker which is spot-on for heavy-hitting home theatre performance.
The Richter Griffin is more than capable of handling the heavy load required of a centre channel speaker in a high-performance home theatre system. It delivers the kind of effortlessly wide, deep soundstage and realistic imaging that puts you in the middle of the on-screen action. You'll hear audio conversations between your favourite movie or TV show characters with pinpoint detail, complemented by special effects that cover the range from surprisingly deep bass to the most delicate highs. Building upon the widely acclaimed Richter Legend family of speakers, the Griffin incorporates the latest developments in speaker technology, fitted into a newly designed enclosure that's beautifully sculpted and luxuriously finished.
The soft-dome neodymium tweeter provides wide dispersion, producing a lively and spacious sound stage with smooth musicality, and a response extending well beyond human hearing.
The highly efficient 130mm 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.
You don't see this, but the crossover network or circuitry inside each enclosure is a key factor in any speakers performance. The all-new designed crossovers were painstakingly designed with feedback from a large team of audio specialists across Australia to produce emotional vocals, an astonishingly vivid sound stage and a smooth blending of frequencies. The highly stable off-axis response means the Legend V series maintain realism in a wide spectrum of listening environments – because everyone’s listening room is different.
Careful Cabinet Design
The Griffin cabinet is made of heavily braced 19mm thick MDF with an even thicker front baffle (as per all the Legend V Series) to keep distortion to a minimum. Each driver has its own separate, non-parallel chamber to increase their efficiency and eliminate internal resonances and standing waves. Dual gold-plated binding posts let you bi-amp or bi-wire this speaker for even better performance although this isn't a requirement in a surround sound system. The grille easily snaps on and off, and it measures less than 5mm thick, so it won't interfere with the sound.
