Symphonia Mini JR
The Symphonia Mini JR is a new contender for one of the best audio bargains out there. The objective for the JR was to extract the essence of its more expensive siblings, but put them in a more affordable package. We think we achieved that goal and more. This is a monitor that takes the strengths of each area in sound reproduction and maximizes the true potential. Simply put, it's unrivaled at its price point.

This speaker is the same as the Symphonia Mini less the expensive custom mounted Accuton Cell tweeter and crossover circuit. We are using an excellent new Eton magnesium/ceramic tweeter, which gets one very close in sonic performance for some substantial savings. We are using the amazing sounding and latest generation Accuton 173mm woofer with resonance control damping dots. You can really hear it dig down deep for a speaker this size, and the midrange is where they truly sing. The transition to the magnesium/ceramic sandwhich dome tweeter is seamless, and here we are using only the best parts in the signal path. The crossovers are hand wired using top tier pure copper wiring with a special coating to prevent oxidation. Best of all, this speaker has gone through many refinements, and we built it so that each design consideration was utilized to its fullest potential. This is evident from the hand crafted sloped front baffle for phase alignment, the point to point soldered crossovers, to the carefully selected and matched transducers.
