The challenge of creating a loudspeaker that can match live music is twofold: first, grasp the auditory cues that communicate the brio of live music to the brain, and second, in the unfeeling realm of drivers, crossovers, and cabinets, know how to manipulate those materials to preserve the ineffable effect that music plays in our emotional lives.
In the case of Alexandria Series 2, the further challenge was to take a loudspeaker that had already, for many people, redefined the state of the art and elevate it to the next level of authentic value. The challenge was to move the marker forward an immediately recognizable degree.
