Legacy Calibre Impresses with “Big, Detailed and Dynamic Sound, with Plenty of Bass Punch”

Posted on October 13, 2016

Rocky Mountain Audio Fest 2016 marked the debut of the new Legacy Audio Calibre high resolution compact speaker. Designed to meet and exceed the stringent high performance standards of recording studio professionals, Calibre is also at home in two channel and surround sound systems.

Jason Victor Serinus, reports for Stereophile: "I was as impressed by this so-called bookshelf as was John Atkinson by one of the bigger Legacy models in the room. A Red Book file of the Ray Brown Trio sounded very smooth and lovely."

"The soundstaging was excellent, and the speaker's low extension, down to 38Hz, equally impressive. "The Infernal Machine" from Fink Meets the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra sounded very fine. I wish I could have spent more time here."

"Powered by Raven tube amplification and controlled with Legacy's Wavelet preamp/processor, the sound was big, detailed and dynamic, with plenty of bass punch. It was a big room and the Calibre's sound filled it impressively."

"It features a 4" Air Motion Tweeter, a 7.5" midrange driver and a top firing 8" high excursion woofer. The woofer's response is coupled with 2 side firing 8" passive radiators."
