«The new bookshelf to beat at a price.»
Alan Sircom, Hifi
“If you value hearing exactly what’s on your CDs and LPs, then you’ll want speakers that just get out of the way and let the music speak for itself, and you’ll need to hear Amphion’s Argon³.”
Philip Beaudette, www.Soundstage.com
Amphion Argon³ is one of the most natural and neutral sounding speakers commercially available. A very high level of transparency means that you can hear deeper into your favorite recordings -– Argon³´s just allow music to come thru.
You can now own the same speakers that are used in the recording process of some of the all time audiophile reference recordings at Stockfisch records. Mr. Günter Pauler, who is responsible for producing numerous audiophile reference albums is using best recording and evaluating tools he can find in his quest to get «Closer to the music». This is what he said of Argon³s.
“The best nearfield speakers I have ever heard.»
Günter Pauler, www.stockfisch-records.de
Even if Mr. Pauler feels Argon³ are the best nearfield speakers he has ever heard, Argon³s were designed to work best in normal acoustically non-treated rooms, where most of the audiophiles enjoy their music. Even if Argon³s benefit from first rate signal chain, surprising results can be achieved also with reasonably modest amplifiers.
