A feature packed sound wonder
With ARC for TV audio, Bluetooth 5.0, phono input for turntables, subwoofer output and then still both an analog and digital input to spare, FENRIS handles virtually all sources you could dream of throwing at them. FENRIS also automatically switches input between the sources you have connected, so in day-to-day use you rarely even need to grab the included remote control. Simply connect your favorite sources, sit back, and enjoy the fantastic sound quality.
Since the digital amplifier in FENRIS has four channels, we were able to assign each driver separate amplifier channels. Doing this, we solve one of the classic challenges of traditional speakers: ensuring that the transition between the treble (the high tones) and the woofer (the deeper tones) is smooth and sounds natural. The technology we use here is called an 'active crossover' and is generally much more accurate than a classic, 'passive' crossover. But wait, there’s more! Because both the amplifier and the drivers in these speakers are our own design, we have optimized them to work perfectly together and tuned everything using advanced DSP. What we’re saying is: our skilled engineers have spent countless days tweaking everything to make sure that your FENRIS speakers perform at their very best. We’d say that they can easily run laps around most classic speakers that cost many times more. The good part is, that you don’t have to worry about all this technical stuff. Just plug them in and press play!
In Argon Audio we firmly believe that you also listen with your eyes. That’s why we have designed FENRIS to look the way they sound: impressive and yet elegantly detailed. The front grille is magnetically attached, meaning that even if you do decide to take it off to see the stylish aluminum trim rings, you don’t have to worry about unsightly holes or visible screws on your speaker. FENRIS is available in three good looking finishes.
Complete system at a low price
Compared to its really successful little brother, the Argon Audio Fenris A5 is a bit more of a good thing. It has the same strengths in terms of an open and well presented sound. It just plays a bit louder and deeper, and with a bit more headroom. As the electronics are the same, it’s an equally good deal at a very low price.
Argon Audio Fenris is a solid offer that fulfills a gap in the market. And boosts a good trend that has slowly been going up for a few years. As an all-around speaker for both TV and music playback, the Fenris A5 is brilliant. The price of €399 is certainly acceptable and therefore it also receives a clear recommendation and an honorable rating.

Considering its price and size, the Fenris A5 sounds incredibly balanced and dynamic. It cleverly exploits the advantages of active technology and convinces with practical features. The Fenris A5 offers serious hi-fi qualities and a wide range of applications thanks to Bluetooth and HDMI: Next to the TV, the speakers sound better than most soundbars, and in a studio flat they provide powerful sound in the smallest space.
