Richter Merlin S6 - Bookshelf Speakers (Pair)
The Series 6 project focused on delivering a new range of Loudspeakers that meet today’s customer’s expectations and equipment choices. This meant listening to and responding to the market by designing a range of Loudspeakers that raise the bar from a visual and entertainment perspective.
New 6 ½” lightweight but extremely stiff paper coated midrange and bass drivers were developed for the Series 6 Range and effectively minimise breakup and roll off-resonance along with an all-new low distortion soft dome tweeter with resonance well below 900Hz and the desired phase characteristics of a gently inclined sound pressure level frequency response to over 30Khz.
The great attention paid in the development of these new propriety drivers has allowed senior Richter engineer Dr Martin Gosnell to create magic with a new crossover design approach using high-quality acoustic polypropylene caps, air-cored and ferrite core inductors as well as a huge laminated core inductor feeding the bass on the new Wizard S6.
This results in the Series 6 design also delivering improved efficiency making them easier to drive even when powered by more modest amplifiers or digital streaming solutions like the popular Sonos Amp. Staying true to the comment of the brands founder ‘I’m not in the audiophile industry, I’m in the entertainment industry,’ Series 6 has been designed to be an Exciting Engaging Entertainment Experience to make you want to start digging through that record and CD collection or start swiping for your favourites from a streaming service.
