Magnaplanar LRS Ribbon Loudspeakers
2-way floorstanding loudspeaker system
Magnepan’s newest entry-level speaker replaces the old MMGi. Designed from the ground up, the LRS, or Little Ribbon Speaker, is a full-range quasi-ribbon speaker. Thus, it is a speaker completely different from its predecessor - more coherent, and much more like the larger models.
Technical differences between the LRS and its predecessor
All versions of the MMG were generically planar-magnetic – wires connected to a non-conducting membrane. The LRS, in contrast, is a ribbon speaker. Or, as we prefer to describe it, quasi-ribbon, since to us, the only true ribbon is the original aluminium-foil variety.
Unlike both the SMG and MMG that were designed for the limitations of receivers with relatively low power and low current capability, the LRS was created using high-end electronics and mono blocks. It will perform nicely with a receiver, but was intentionally designed to extract the most from high-end amplifiers and electronics. In contrast to most entry-level speakers, the LRS expects more from a properly designed high-current amplifier. Put your expensive high-end amplifier on the LRS, and you will hear the difference!
Once you have tried a Magneplanar in your home, the probability is high that you will become a lifelong Maggie enthusiast.
The LRS is available in a variety of cloth and trim finishes. Choose between natural or black solid oak or dark cherry trim with either off-white, grey or black fabric.
All Magnepan speakers are meticulously crafted by hand in Minnesota, USA.
