Legacy Calibre: "3D Sound... Like A 5.1 Sound Session"
First Impression: Gotta Have It!
"Recently, I was fortunate enough to be invited to Destination HiFi, one of Legacy Audio’s local dealers in North Hollywood, CA to demo the Legacy Audio Calibre Bookshelf Speakers. James, the representative there, was very cordial and informative in all things Legacy."
"The Calibre pair that was used was exquisite. This finish though is a sight to see, beautiful, in fact. It sounds more like a fine wine than a speaker cabinet."
"If there is a space constraint, you get the performance and drivers of a Legacy tower folded into a bookshelf cabinet..."
"The separation of instruments was considerable giving the Calibres a voluminous sound. The soundstage and the imaging were considerable, creating a more 3 dimensional sound, seemingly around the room as though this was a 5.1 sound session."
"A snippet of the Superman “Man of Steel” score was filled with so much emotion driven by Hans Zimmer’s rhythm that goose bumps crawled up and down my arms."
"A segment of Sergei Rachmaninoff’s “All Night Vigil” Op. 37 gave the impression of being in the concert hall where the choir and orchestra were performing. There was a track of organ music that might as well have been performed in a gothic cathedral. Pedal notes were heard distinctly and the lowest registers were felt throughout the room. All without the sub."
"One of the tracks that expressed the Calibre’s bass capabilities was a taiko drum track. Even before the Metro XD sub was brought in, the bass really punched me in the chest. The bass was taken up a notch through the Metro, especially toward the end of the track with startling bass hits. Whoa!"
"If you live close to North Hollywood, and are interested in high-end speakers with furniture grade cabinets, or just want to experience high-end audio, do not hesitate to give Destination Hi Fi a call and schedule a demo."
