Larsen 9

Golden Ear Award 2020
Continual improvement and deep knowledge about Stig Carlsson´s ortho acoustic principles is still a big part of the mission behind our product line. But this time we even made exclusive choices of all material you find in L9. With a flavor from the Nordic furniture tradition the outfit is smooth and soft and they are easy furnished as all earlier Larsen-models: Flush against the wall is the receipt.

This placement combined with the unique positioning and angle of the drivers, flanked by absorbers, creates a rich and deep three-dimensional sound stage, far more detailed and with better ambience, than the existing Larsen models. The two basses, working together under 300 Hz, perform a deep, attacking and precis bass, with very low distortion, all the way down to 22 Hz. The high frequencies are performed with clearness and excellent spreading, very low distortion. The plate around the tweeter is the same as Larsen 8.

On Larsen Hifi we have never understood the need for a separate subwoofer. Using the backwall as a part of the listening room the ortho acoustic way offer as much bass as you want. And furthermore, with this model we have a depth and a layering of the sound which is amazing. Enjoy!
