amphion argon 3s loudspeakers
Available in smooth satin white or black, the compact Amphion Argon 3S is also available in a high quality walnut veneer. The supplied protective metallic grilles (a fabric grille can be alternatively requested at time of order) are available in any of the colours shown below.
Amphion's design approach concentrates on smooth, wide dispersion via waveguide technology in order to minimize room effects so you hear less of your room and more of your music.
A low crossover point of 1600Hz throughout the Argon range means the speakers emit more of the directional frequencies we hear from one single point, and also allows a wider frequency range to benefit from the all important waveguide around the titanium HF unit. This also moves the crossover point well below the 2-5kHz frequency area which our ears are the most sensitive to. The leading edges of notes from any instrument become much more precise and defined in comparison to speakers using higher crossover points.
The Argon 3S speakers are a single wire model - this cuts down on excessive crossover components, and is one reason why Amphion speakers are so clear and transparent, and used in recording studios for monitoring mixes.
The 3S is a sealed bookshelf design, and uses a lightweight passive radiator instead of a port. This produces a far smoother bass response than a port, and avoids the negative aspects associated with them.
The Argon 3S speakers uses a larger mid/bass driver in a substantially larger cabinet than the Argon 1, producing a fuller, punchier presentation better suited to larger spaces needing higher output. Naturally, the waveguide for the titanium HF unit is larger too.
Bass is substantially deeper too, giving the Argon 3S the presence and weight usually associated with floorstanding loudspeakers.
The 3S is a sealed box, using a lightweight aluminium passive radiator instead of a port placed directly behind the mid/bass driver. This removes the negative problems of reflex ports, and also works over the entire frequency range of the front firing mid/bass driver for a smoother, more natural response.
