Snell LCR7 30th Anniversary Speakers

Filed under: Loudspeakers

The LCR7 30th Anniversary Edition marks Snell's 30th year as a premium speaker manufacturer. The speaker is a D'Appolito Array, named for Snell's chief Engineer, Joe D'Appolito Ph.D. This driver arrangement makes the woofers and tweeter appear to play from the same point, regardless of listening position. The result is a palpable level of realism, rarely heard from music or theater speak- ers .

The LCR7 features SEAS XL tweeter and woofers, drivers that solve the mechanical problems causing break-up and distortion, and Snell's "Quiet Box" cabinet, a unique three layer wall design. The LCR7 30th Anniversary Edition is a compact LCR (for left, center, right) that can reach sound pressures of 110dB, while preserving microdynamics and nuance typical of a live acoustic performance.

Over the years J. has constantly found himself to be an "early-adopter," spending way too much money on "new" technologies such as Compact Disc, LaserDisc, and DVD. He is one of the few people who actually purchased (and still owns) a CORE programmable remote control (bonus points if you remember this product).
