Our loudspeakers are built around our new technology Ribbon drivers. These Ribbons are a clean sheet design and were developed to produce the transparency and detail of the large classic Ribbon and electrostatic panel loudspeakers. The objective was to offer the audio magic (transparency and detail) of the classic panels in updated speakers which are vastly easier to live with in terms of demands on the amplifier, room placement, reliability and dynamics.
Newform Ribbon loudspeakers offer a great musical experience in a far more practical package at a far lower cost than ever before. How? Look at the speakers. They are extremely narrow which reduces diffraction and baffle bounce, both of which smear the sound quality and reduce a listeners ability to hear into the music. Almost the entire front of the speaker is composed of diaphragms. These diaphragms only radiate to the front so there is no back wave to complicate room setup or compromise home theatre applications.
The parts used are world class yet the cost is very, very competitive. This is the result of new technology breakthroughs, tight design and true factory direct sales. No one can better support our loudspeakers than we can and no one knows your listening room and musical tastes better than you do. Involving anyone else only increases costs and reduces the chances for superb results.
We will discuss your system, your listening room and your taste in music. When these parameters clear, we can confidently recommend a suitable model. We regularly tell people our speakers aren't suitable for what they want to do, but once we make a recommendation, it is very rare that a system is sent back. We undersell deliberately since the customer is covered by the one year 100% trade-in upgrade policy. We try to make your purchase as easy as possible. All prices in North America are one price at your door.
We are not here to sell unsuitable loudspeakers because returns cost us a great deal in time, freight, packaging, re-testing and discounted demo sales.
This is not an instant shopping experience. Long term musical satisfaction takes a bit more consideration at the beginning. This consultation process doesn't have to be very time consuming, it just has to clarify the basics.
Newform Research loudspeakers are divided into two categories. The Ribbon Series comprised of the R58, R530, R630v3 and R645v3. The Ribbon Series is the main line of loudspeakers and the ones which most people will decide on. They are well known and simply but well constructed and represent extremely high value. Virtually every home application for a loudspeaker can be covered by one of these models.
The No Holds Barred (NHB) models are under development and represent the ultimate in acoustic excellence. Massive, formed enclosures with double walls and high rates of damping are the basis of the new models. ScanSpeaks best midbass drivers combined with the advanced enclosures and our Ribbon designs do indeed achieve new heights of accuracy. Very high quality external crossovers and easy switchover capability to DSP crossovers and biamping finish off the package.
The No Holds Barred cost a great deal to make but they possess distinct performance advantages. Also, women like their looks. What else is left?
