The performance surpasses absolutely everything in the price-range and comes close to others at nearly twice the price! To explain this is simple. We buy directly from Richter. There is one less link in the distribution chain and these savings are passed on which creates a 'win win' scenario. The Mentor's will work well with low powered Hi-Fi or Home Theatre Amplifiers and Receivers but will sound significantly better with higher quality amplification.
2-Way Audiophile Design
The true two-way design features Richter’s top-of-the-line wide-dispersion soft-dome tweeter and the same powerful 150mm (6") bass/midrange drivers as used in other models. This makes them ideal for a quality hi-fi stereo in a small to medium room, but four or more of them would be ideal for anchoring the sonic drama of your Home Theatre. You would still need a decent subwoofer.
Tweeters: The soft-dome neodymium tweeters provide wide dispersion, producing a lively and spacious sound stage with smooth musicality, and a response extending well beyond human hearing.
Mid-Bass Drivers: The highly efficient 150mm (6") mid/bass driver 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.
Crossover Network: 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.
Cabinets: The cabinets or enclosures as some call them have been completely redesigned using non-parallel panels to reduce 'standing waves' which are an annoying problem that every speaker maufacturer has to address if they want tight and accurately pleasing sound. Also invisible to the naked eye is the comprehensive bracing that has been positioned to minimise harmonics. Double thickness rear and front baffles and new high density damping makes these the most neutral and musical cabinets Richter have ever produced.
