The technological advances in amplifier technology the past ten years or so means, that amplifiers today are getting smaller and smaller and increasingly efficient at the same time. This means that it is much easier to build the amplifier directly into the speaker – benefitting you in a myriad of ways! This is the reason we, in Argon Audio, believe firmly that the future for speakers is active.
Our active hi-fi speakers are smarter than normal speakers for a number of reasons. The one obvious benefit is that you do not have to worry about what choice of amplifier to get for your speakers. In an active speaker, the amplifier has been matched perfectly to the speakers from the get go by our capable engineers, meaning all you have to do is lean back, turn up the volume and enjoy the music.
At the same time, you are getting a simpler system that takes up less space in your home, and is much easier to set up. Simply connect the active speaker to power, connect the passive speaker to the active speaker and you are done.
That is not all though. As the manufacturer of all parts that make up the product, we know every single component in the system. Everything from the amplifier, to the cabinet, to the drivers and even the speaker cable has been chosen carefully by us to match perfectly, often adding up to more than the sum of their parts. This is unique in the audio business, where systems are often made up of components from many different manufacturers.
At the same time, this also means that we can use advanced DSP (digital signal processing) to even further improve the sound of the speaker. We know exactly what works and what does not work in our design, and can therefore improve and correct exactly what we need to.
All our speakers have built in Bluetooth. We think this is by far the easiest way to connect your device and the quality of Bluetooth today is as good as most wireless connections. Aside from Bluetooth, we always make sure our speakers have the connections they need for your other needs. For example, all our speakers have an optical input for easy connection to your TV. This can give you much better, dynamic stereo sound from your TV than even the best sound bars out there today can offer.
Most of our speakers also have a direct turntable input on the back, so you do not have to worry about an extra, external box for RIAA-amplification from your turntable.
With wireless streaming and all the connection you would ever need, a pair of active speakers from Argon Audio can be a serious alternative to a “normal” audio system – and can be just as good.
