Legacy Aeris Makes International Debut at High End Show Munich

Posted on May 14, 2013

The Legacy Audio Aeris Loudspeaker was unveiled in the striking Legacy premium cabernet finish at The High End Show Munich.

Fresh off of Legacy’s awards for Best Sound (Highest Value) by Robert Harley at Rocky Mountain Audio Fest, Best of The Year from HomeTheaterReview.com, and back to back Editors' Choice from The Absolute Sound, Legacy introduces their latest creation to Europe- the bold yet elegant Aeris.

Aeris is a technological powerhouse touting 24-bit DSP and 1kwatts of internal bass power. The upper portion of Aeris is open-air dipole for fast decay of midbass frequencies and airy spacious highs.

The Aeris loudspeakers were paired with the AVM Ovation CD8T CD & preamplifier with tube output stage and 7 digital inputs. The top section of the Aeris speakers was powered by two AVM MA3.2 Monobloc power amplifiers delivering 420 watts each.


The 6 driver, 4.5 way system is the first to use the Legacy Dual Air Motion neodymium tweeter with high dynamic range, and a dipolar titanium encrusted 8” midrange with an enormous motor structure imported from Italy. The midbass punch is delivered by an open air 10” driver, while dual 12” subwoofers provide a linear volume displacement of nearly 200 cubic inches. The bass section is internally powered by dual 500Watt ICEpower® modules and offers exceptional bass extension.

A second system based around the Legacy Signature SE towers in black pearl finish, features the same critically acclaimed Legacy Dual Air Motion neodymium tweeter system as the larger Aeris. The Signature SE was paired with the AVM Evolution CD3.2 CD & preamplifier and powered by Coda Tm monobloc amplifiers delivering 800 watts each.
