Harlequin V

(5 customer reviews)

When you want room-filling sound on a budget, Richter’s impressive Harlequins leave the competition behind. These compact three-way speakers feature Richter’s top-line wide-dispersion soft-dome tweeters and newly developed five-inch proprietary mid and bass drivers that will amaze you with their power and musicality. The Harlequins are ideal for medium-sized rooms.

“The Harlequins Series V made a great first impression: the moment the laser reached the intro track the room was filled with fabulous sound…”

The soft-dome neodymium tweeters provide wide dispersion, producing a lively and spacious sound stage with smooth musicality, and a response extending well beyond human hearing.

The highly efficient 5-inch mid/bass drivers harness composite cones combining the natural acoustic finesse of paper with the strength of modern carbon- fibre technology. This produces ideal damping characteristics plus the coherence and timing essential to draw you into the music.

The awesome bass is rich, deep and firm.

New crossovers were painstakingly designed with feedback from a large team of audio specialists across Australia to produce emotional vocals, an astonishingly vivid sound stage and a smooth blending of frequencies. The highly stable off-axis response means the Legends maintain realism in a wide spectrum of listening environments – because everyone’s listening room is different.

The cabinets have been completely redesigned using non-parallel panels to reduce standing waves, and the comprehensive bracing is positioned to minimise harmonics. Double thickness rear and front baffles and new high density damping makes these the most neutral and musical cabinets we have ever produced.

Do yourself a favour, just listen!

    Visted a hifi store to buy a pair of other well known brand, salesman set the speakers up for a demo and they sounded great. He then suggested I listen to the Harlequins which were smaller than the other brand. It was hard to comprehend the sound the Harlequins were putting out, great open sound stage, and very clear and precise. Switching back and forth between the speakers the sound from the harlequins sounded like it was coming from the other speakers as my mind was trying to tell me surely the better sound had to be coming from the larger ones alongside.
    My mind was made up and I bought the Harlequins (which were actually cheaper) and haven’t regreted it since – also returned to get the Merlins for the rears in the home theatre.

    I picked up a pair of Harlequins (Series V) at a bargain price, being in runout mode prior to the release of the new Series VI. Even at full price, these speakers represent extraordinary value for money. Sound is superb, as is the quality of the build etc. I am completely satisfied: for a small to medium sized room these speakers are excellent.

    Finally had to give up my old pair of floor standing Tannoys that had served me many years, what to do, so contacted the team at audio junction. They listened to my requirements, you know everything for a reasonable price. They suggested various options but nothing was really floating my boat until they suggested I listen to a pair of harlequins. Sold, or that was how it felt…. these fitted the bill perfectly. A well balanced capable set of floor standers that didn’t break the bank. I have always had a preference for a laid back easy on the ear sound whilst giving a punch when needed. These have fitted the bill perfectly, a very happy customer.

    After a long wait for a speaker upgrade I am thrilled with my Richter Harlequin’s. The sound stage is amazing and the clarity of all musical components is truly a revelation at this price point. Thank you Richter for keeping my passion for quality old fashioned hi fi alive!
