Aussie Legend Continues with Richter Harlequin S6 Release
One of Australia's home-grown speaker brands since 1986, Richter Audio has announced the release of its Legend Series 6, Harlequin S6 2-Way floorstanding loudspeaker.
Following months of testing, and delays caused by COVID-19, the Harlequin S6 has cleared quarantine and can now cross borders into Australian homes.
Richter Audio's highly anticipated Series 6 of loudspeakers is now complete, with Managing Director, Brian Rodgers commenting:
The new Harlequin Series 6 speakers have 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.
The two-way floorstanding loudspeaker feature a “new 6.5-inch lightweight but extremely stiff paper coated Mid/Bass driver in this new rear-ported 2 Way Bass Reflex design”. Richter says these drivers effectively minimise breakup and roll off resonance. There's also a 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 development of these new propriety drivers allowed Dr Martin Gosnell to focus on a new minimal crossover design using high-quality acoustic polypropylene caps, air-cored and ferrite core inductors.
Selling for the very reasonable price of $1,899 RRP and available in matt black or walnut finish, they're also supplied with new S6H speaker stabilisers which are said to “improve sideways and forward stability, as well as overall improved acoustic performance of the speaker.”
Vital stats include a quoted frequency response of (-6dB) 31Hz-30KHz, 88.5 dB (2.83Vrms, 1m on Axis) sensitivity, nominal 6 Ohms, and a recommended amplifier power of 50-100 watts RMS. Each cabinet weighs in at 15.5kg.
The Harlequin S6 will be available from the second half of July 2020 initially in the matt black finish.
