The fit and finish on the LREs said “prototype” (as is only appropriate, since Suhre freely admitted that they were) but the sound most definitely did not. The lack of resonance lead to clear, firm, and big sound, with magnificent integration. There was a complete absence of the almost-endemic Hilton bass boominess that other exhibitors struggled mightily to counteract. These speakers, designed to perform shoved up against a wall, neatly canceled out the nasty room modes and performed with an incredible lack of distortion.
The projected introductory price is around $5,000 each. If you missed visiting this room at THE Show, it’ll be worth your while to check ’em out at the California Audio Show in August.
