FENRIS

FENRIS is in a class of its own in this price range. Our goal when creating these active speakers was to provide superior quality and features while keeping them budget friendly. They are perfect for new hi-fi enthusiasts who want to experience high-quality sound without compromising ease of use. To provide all this value in the speakers, we decided to use high-quality PVC for cabinet construction, and the amplifiers and drivers are slightly less powerful and of slightly lower quality compared to FORTE. However, the sound quality remains top-notch. We've tuned the sound to have an extra bass punch for a fun and lively sound profile that will blow away any soundbar.

With their sleek Danish design, FENRIS speakers are as visually impressive as they sound. FENRIS is the ideal choice for new hi-fi enthusiasts, offering kick-ass sound experiences that provide great value for money.

  • Emphasizes a fun, hi-fi sound profile with more pronounced bass.
  • Constructed from high-quality PVC
  • Bluetooth 5.0
  • HDMI ARC for TV audio
  • Supports High-Res Audio at up to 24-bit/48 kHz
  • Priced from 329 € per pair.

A4, A5, or A55?

To put it simply, you are choosing the size of your speaker system, which includes both the physical size and the size of the speaker components. The A4, A5, and A55 models aren't just numbers but refer to the size of the bass/midrange unit on the speakers. The A4, being the most compact, is equipped with a 4-inch bass/midrange driver. In contrast, the A55, a floor-standing speaker system, boasts dual 5-inch units for enhanced bass response.

The A4 model is ideally suited for a gaming setup in your bedroom or as a discreet solution next to your TV, offering clear and precise sound quality in a compact form.

The A5, on the other hand, marks a significant improvement with its ability to deliver deeper bass and higher volume, making it suitable for slightly larger spaces or those seeking a more impactful sound experience.

Stepping it up, the "A55" is where things get serious. Designed for audiophiles and those passionate about music and film, these speakers deliver deep, resonant bass and a sound experience that doesn't just fill the space but completely transforms it. Perfect for transforming your living room into a cinematic oasis or creating that concert hall vibe for your playlists.

01

What are active speakers?

Active speakers are equipped with built-in amplifiers, which eliminate the need for an external amplifier or receiver to drive the sound. Unlike passive speakers, they only require a power source and can connect directly to your audio sources, such as your TV, computer, or turntable.

Our active speakers support various input sources, including HDMI ARC for TV audio, Bluetooth, phono input for turntables, and both analog and digital input. In other words. You can finally throw away that cheap plastic soundbar underneath your TV and get some real stereo sound, without compromising on ease-of-use!

Our active speakers even automatically switch inputs between the sources you have connected, so in day-to-day use, you rarely need to grab the included remote control. Simply connect your favorite sources, sit back, and enjoy the fantastic sound quality.

02

The amplifier

Let’s dive a little deeper into the amplifier in the active speakers – the following may contain some technical jargon, but don't worry, we’ll try to keep it as straightforward as possible.

The amplifier in Argon Audio's active speakers features high-performance digital sound processing (DSP) with an active crossover, which allows the mid/bass woofers and tweeters to have their own dedicated amplifiers. This is what we would call a "true" active speaker - some competitors still use an old-fashioned passive crossover, which is not always the best solution for sound quality. Our custom-engineered bass drivers deliver class-leading performance with ultra-low distortion in the critical midrange.

We have taken great care in selecting each component, from the amplifier and cabinet to the drivers and even the speaker cable, to ensure a perfect match and deliver the best possible listening experience.

This is why we, at Argon Audio, firmly believe that the future for speakers is active.

03

True Active Speakers

One often overlooked aspect of high-quality active speakers is that 1+1 doesn’t equal 2—it equals 4. This means that a conventional passive speaker would need a 200 watt amplifier in order to achieve the same performance as an active speaker with only a 2 X 50 watt amplifier! This is one of the reasons why active speakers sound so powerful compared to passive speakers.

The DSP (Digital Signal Processing) is an important part of this puzzle. DSP is used to design the crossover and response of the speaker with a precision only possible in active speakers.

DSP in combination with active speakers gives more freedom to design optimized drivers without making any compromises. Typically, the woofers in a passive speaker have a mechanical break to avoid damage at high sound levels. Using DSP supervision, the woofer can be designed with higher linearity since the breaking is handled by the DSP. In addition to this, with DSP we can correct speaker response without deterioration - this is simply not possible in a passive speaker.
The woofers in FORTE A55 are a prime example of the benefits of transducer design, using DSP. We designed a new motor system with a focus on very low distortion - all without looking at parameters since these can be controlled using DSP. These woofers won’t work in a passive speaker design, but in an active speaker with DSP they shine with class-leading low distortion and extended frequency response.

Active Speakers vs Soundbars and Passive Speakers

Advantages of active speakers

Are you still following or feeling overwhelmed? Let’s simplify things with a list of the benefits!

What's so great about stereo sound?

What's so great about stereo sound? While your soundbar might be great, and your streaming speaker in the kitchen is very convenient, they can only produce 'mono' sound, which can often sound flat. It will never be able to compete with the sound experience you get with a stereo setup.

Stereo sound allows for a fully immersive experience, where you can locate the origin of sounds, discern different tonalities, and even feel the vibrations on your skin. This is not just a marketing claim, as studies have shown that humans are naturally designed to perceive sound in stereo.

Just imagine how you would feel if a movie theater only had a soundbar or if a concert had speakers on just one side. What if you could only wear a headphone on one ear while gaming? You wouldn't be happy, so why settle for less at home when you can have the same great stereo sound experience?
