Magnepan LRS - Floorstanding Planar Magnetic Speaker (Pair)
For decades, the SMG and MMG made the introduction to Maggies and high-end audio for thousands of music lovers. The majority of customers getting started had modestly-priced receivers or integrated amplifiers. Consequently, the SMG and MMG were designed for the limitations of receivers with relatively low power and low current capability. The LRS is a radical change in our marketing strategy.
The LRS (Little Ribbon Speaker) is a full-range quasi-ribbon speaker that was designed from the ground up to give you a pretty good idea what to expect from the 20.7 or 30.7. The LRS was designed using high-end electronics and mono blocks. The LRS will perform nicely with a receiver, but it was intentionally designed to extract the most from high-end amplifiers and electronics. The LRS expects more from a properly designed high-current amplifier. That is a radical departure from most entry-level loudspeakers. If you put your expensive high-end amplifier on the LRS, you will hear the difference.
What is a ribbon speaker?
Ribbon and electrostatic speakers are elegant and simple. The air is moved and sound waves are created by moving an ultra-light film or aluminum ribbon. Ultra-low mass enables the ribbon to respond quickly to the electrical signal from the amplifier. What you hear is higher definition. For a more detailed explanation see Magneplanar technology
