The Merlin S6 takes out Best Loudspeaker for 2020 ($500-$1,000) at the Sound + Image Awards.
The Merlin S6 Bookshelf Speaker is part of the sixth generation (Series 6) of the Legendary Richter speakers and in this series we wanted to focus on delivering Loudspeakers that meet today’s customer’s expectations and equipment choices.
This meant raising the bar from a visual and performance perspective. New aesthetically pleasing cabinet designs including magnetic mounting grills were drafted as well as the development of all new Propriety drivers which allowed us to take a new cross over design approach.
Staying true to the comment of the brands founder ‘I’m not in the audiophile industry, I’m in the entertainment industry,’ the Series 6 range is designed to deliver an Exciting Engaging Entertainment Experience. We’d like to get you digging through that record and CD collection or start swiping for your favourites from a streaming service.
Our New 6 1/2” speaker driver cones are made from a pulp comprising of paper, hemp, kapok and wool with an engineered fibre resulting in a very lightweight but stiff driver cone, then sprayed with surface sealant. These new Midrange and Bass drivers developed for the Series 6 Range effectively minimise breakup and roll off resonance. Then partnered with an all New low distortion soft dome tweeter which has a resonance well below 900Hz and the desired phase characteristics of a gently inclined sound pressure level frequency response to over 30Khz.
These New Drivers allowed us to take a New crossover design approach, minimising the number of components needed in the signal path while using high quality acoustic polypropylene caps, air core and ferrite core inductors as well as a huge laminated core inductor feeding the bass on the new Wizard S6.
Richter Series 6 speakers all use our New heavy-duty, high-Quality gold-plated speaker terminal connectors which can accept a variety of connector types including: bare wire, pin connectors, spade connectors and banana plugs.
