FENRIS – 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.
A grown Fenris
Like the other models in the same range, the Argon Audio Fenris A55 has a fresh and open sound, leaving no tonal area untouched. This makes listening easy and invites you to play louder than just background music. Which is always a good thing. After all, that's what music and electronics are made for.
Fenris A55 has no trouble with rock music or house or dance music - or with a singer/songwriter like Leonard Cohen - and even seems a bit made for it. The crossover is seamless and tonal ranges are balanced. Argon Audio has done its best to combine many features with good sound and a low price. The sound is above expectations for the price level.
