When it comes to over the top audio systems Wisdom is one of the most respected names in the industry, so their new series of modular high-powered LS speakers, consisting of the LS2 and LS3 solutions, will surely send shivers down the spines of audiophiles everywhere.
Priced at an respectable $30,000 and $40,000, the new line-source planar-magnetic tower speakers
feature some of the most compact enclosure in the audiophile world, coming in at just 12 inches deep, making them ideal for hidden installation.
Designed to be used together with the company's $10,000 STS subwoofer, the new LS series incorporates multiple 20-inch-tall individual modules, each module coming with two upper bass/lower midrange drivers paired together with a planar magnetic upper midrange/high-frequency driver.
In order to be joined together, each module uses an interlocking system that is invisible from the front, the LS4 using four modules with a total vertical line-source height of 80 inches while the LS3 consists of three modules with a combined vertical line source height of 60 inches.
Furthermore, multiple LS3 and LS4 modules can be mixed and matched to create multichannel theater systems, all of them featuring identical acoustical characteristics.
“Through customer feedback, we identified an opportunity to address both the ultra high-end audio market
and installations for large theaters where high sensitivity and maximum SPL are critical,” states Mark Glazier, Wisdom Audio
“We applied the cumulative planar magnetic transducer design experience of our team to create the Wisdom Series LS4 and LS3, resulting in a totally fresh concept, the most advanced speaker we ever made and, we believe, the best performing domestic speaker system available.
They completely shatter all preconceptions about speaker performance and placement, while offering the uncompromising customer that prefers to see the speaker in the room a truly unique solution. These products truly amaze,” concluded the company's rep.
Retailing for $30,000 and $40,000, the LS3 and LS4 will be unveiled during CES 2011, delivery beginning in February, according to the company.
