Legacy Aeris & Wavelet are 2016 Golden Ear Award Winners

Posted on August 02, 2016

The Legacy Audio Aeris Speaker System with Wavelet has been awarded the 2016 Golden Ear Award. This is the 3rd Golden Ear Award win for the Legacy Audio Aeris.

"The Legacy Aeris can now be purchased with a specially adapted version of the same Wavelet electronics used in Legacy's top-of the-line Legacy V. The Wavelet makes an already excellent speaker a relative bargain in performance-for-price. One key advance is that it provides easy automatic setup for room correction. The Wavelet is also, however, an excellent DAC and analog/digital preamp, and takes a new approach to room correction that provides the cleanest and most musically convincing results I have heard to date." - TAS 265, September 2016

The award is for reference products that have withstood the test of time and new-found favorites destined to become classics.

Legacy has also been awarded 5 Editor's Choice Awards, "Without Question, one of the Great Values in High End Audio" , Speaker of The Year, the LIFE Reference 100% Award, Secrets Best of the Year Award, Breakthrough Technology of The Year and more.

After reviewing the speaker, Anthony H. Cordesman called it "The kind of speaker you just have to audition, and with technology that provides the shape of things to come- right now!"
