Amphion Introduces Redesigned Helium and Argon Loudspeakers at High End Show in Munich

Finnish manufacturer Amphion Loudspeakers will demonstrate their updated Helium and Argon models at the 2018 High End Show in Munich, May 11-13. Amphion had earlier announced updates to Helium410, Helium510, Argon0, and Argon1. These bookshelf loudspeakers now come in redesigned cabinets. The two Helium models utilize new, higher-class components.

The larger Argon models: 3S, 3LS and 7LS exhibited at the show will be updated versions. All models have a redesigned crossover, incorporating more of the know-how Amphion has learned from its pro audio experience.

"We are in constant communication with the real world and listen very carefully to our customers' feedback," says Anssi Hyvönen, founder and Managing Director of Amphion. "These conversations urged us to look for new and more sophisticated solutions. Our experience from the pro audio market gave us the answers we needed in order to make the Argon models sound even better. This update will bring more air to the highest treble, improve openness and resolution, and bring the tweeter level adjustment possibility also to the Argon7LS."

The cabinet-change implemented with the smallest Helium and Argon models is a repositioning of the reflex tube, which is now located directly behind the woofer. This results in an improved bass response and enhanced clarity in the midrange.

In addition, Helium410 and Helium510 employ a new tweeter that provides lower distortion and more detail. This way the signature Amphion 3-dimensional sound is brought to a new level, ensuring great resolution and music appreciation throughout the whole room either in a stereo speaker setup or a complete home theatre installation. The update allows the most affordable, entry-level Amphion speakers Helium410 and Helium510 to provide a sound which belies their relatively small size and reasonable price tag.

Amphion's set up at the High-End Show will be completed with the flagship floorstander Krypton3. Amphion Loudspeakers are located at Atrium 3.1 C119.
