The LCR-4 Loudspeaker is a highly accurate and dynamic reference monitor system that is ideal in both 2-channel and multi-channel systems. The LCR nomenclature refers to its ability to be used in a Left, Center and Right Channel array. In fact, many customers have chosen to use the LCR-4 for every channel in a multi-channel system; and with 32 Hz bass response, most customers in medium to small listening rooms find they don’t need a dedicated subwoofer system.Designed for use as a center channel speaker with the VR-22, VR-3, VR-33, VR-35, VR-4, VR-44 and VR-5 Series of speaker models, the LCR-4 is a giant step forward in the area of vocal intelligibility at a reasonable price point. This monitor uses very high quality drivers designed by Scanspeak of Denmark.
Since the twin 7in (178mm) bass-mids have to reproduce both the bass and midrange frequencies, it is a challenge to design a driver that will reproduce the human voice with extreme clarity, while also being asked to reproduce deep bass frequencies at a high volume level. In order to obtain the maximum vocal intelligibility, the LCR-4 uses specially designed drivers that were optimized for this function, and consist of high-tech laminated cones driven by patented Low Distortion Motors. The Scan designed 1” tweeter has a long throw, chambered rear cavity to reduce resonance, a specially treated fabric dome, and the Low Distortion Motor. This tweeter combines both high details with extremely smooth sound, especially in the important vocal range.
To ensure extreme clarity in the vocal range, we have eliminated cavity resonance by using a sealed box design, and to eliminate the cabinet wall distortion, we have utilized our Triple-Wall Noise Canceling Technology. By bonding three different materials together, included resin-impregnated MDF, artificial stone, and rubberized felt in a 2.75” thick composite, the opposing Q’s of these materials cancel the natural tendency of the walls to vibrate.In order to synchronize the bass-mids with the tweeter, we have employed our Global Axis Integration Network, a 4th order crossover slope which is phase consistent and has almost zero distortion. Since we are not pushing the drivers outside of their intended operating range, the clarity of the LCR-4 is at the state-of-the-art level, which is extremely important for vocal intelligibility in a center channel application and has no problem keeping up with our large floor-standing left and right main speakers. Available in high-gloss black, the LCR-4 Loudspeaker is the perfect choice for someone looking for a full-range reference monitor solution regardless if they want one or seven channels of sound. When paired with Von Schweikert Audio’s floor-standing speakers, the LCR-4 is the best value center channel available, blends seamlessly and brings vocal intelligibility to the forefront effortlessly..
The Visiun and Visiun Signature have been called “the best in the world” by two leading video magazines: The Secrets of Home Theater and Audiophile Audition. These magazines not only found the Visiun to have the highest level of vocal intelligibility on the market, but were impressed with our universal design which enables the Visiun to be timbre matched to any main speaker on the market, regardless of type, size, or brand.
Timbre matching requires several adjustments to the frequency response in order for the center speaker to match the sonic timbre balance of the main speakers. We have designed the Visiun to be adjustable in the bass, midrange, and treble frequency bands, using simple controls that are intuitive to use. To adjust the tonal balance of our twin - 7” (178mm) aluminum woofers, the bass transient response and Q Factor of the tuning alignment are adjustable. We accomplish this feat by means of addition or reduction of the Dacron stuffing inside the aperiodically tuned rear vents, which act as a pressure release system, not as bass reflex ports. The power handling and impact of the two 7” aluminum woofers is amazing and surpass the bass clarity and punch of many main speaker systems! Since you can tune these woofers for various placement situations, such as on a stand or mounted inside an equipment cabinet, the universal design aspect is quite important.
Our 7” custom-built midrange driver has the highest level of Force Factor and Acceleration Factor, based on the extremely light and rigid cone which is driven by a 100oz magnet and edge-wound ribbon voice coil. Indeed, the vocal intelligibility of this driver exceeds the clarity of most ribbon or electrostatic drivers due to the incredible dynamic range inherent in its design. The adjustment range is 100dB from fully On to Off which is accomplished with hand-built Japanese attenuators which do not affect the clarity in any way.
The treble range from 2k to 50kHz is reproduced by a new Neodymium-driven Wide Surround tweeter made for the Visiun in Denmark. The composite fabric/carbon impregnated dome has a rear chamber to reduce the back pressure and increase the transient response, enabling a very high dynamic range with low distortion. The treble timbre matching is also accomplished by the use of Japanese potentiometers, which do not add distortion to the signal.
Made with the finest parts available, and featuring the legendary design of Albert Von Schweikert, it is no wonder the Visiun and Visiun Signature are the most responsive and adaptable center channel speakers on the market! But don’t just take our word for it, hearing is believing.
