The new Classic HD is designed from the ground up to deliver amazing sound. Great as a front pair in home theater applications; exacting enough for the most critical audiophile. Highs are sweet and clear, vocals are natural and effortless-free of the thin, compressed nasality so common today. Midbass has punch, and bass is solid and well defined.
“A spectacular set of speakers for two-channel music…Very few speakers can reveal the emotional underpinnings of a song without revealing their presence, the Classic HD bring you under their spell and makes you forget you are there." -Darryl Wilkinson, Home Theater Magazine
The Legacy folded ribbon tweeter is suspended between front and rear magnets, delivering four times the volume velocity of a flat diaphragm. This provides high efficiency, wide bandwidth and terrific power handling. The midrange is our own cast frame design, providing a larger radiating surface for reduced distortion and much higher output capability. The diaphragm is our silver/graphite weave. Tucked under the precisely shaped phase plug is a secondary neodymium magnet which concentrates the magnetic field in the voice coil gap. The result is an ultra-smooth response with incredible dynamics.
To keep up with the speed of the midrange and treble required two custom 8” bass drivers. We tooled a deep and rugged cast frame with an extra large mounting surface to allow long excursion and prevent midbass blurring. The cone mass was optimized to provide extended bass without overhang.
The versatile Classic HD cabinetry is as rich and detailed as its sound. Choose from warm cherry, exquisite rosewood or elegant black pearl finishes.

Firstly, a massive thank you to Aamir!! His guidance, in this new world around us, has been fantastic. A lot of audio equipment, speakers ect. are not easily auditioned, if at all. It is very rare to find someone honest, extremely knowledgeable like him in retail HiFi. Total trust.
Legacy Classic HD, Silverscreen HD center ch. One word..... UNBELIEVABLE! After many speakers, processors, amplifiers, I am very near Nirvana! I've had the Legacys for over a month now, connected to a NAD M17v2 pre pro, 2 Tonewinner AD5180 amplifiers, 2 SVS SB subs nicely dialed in for 2 ch, theater is still under construction ((only 5ch). Coming from Paradigm Prestige, which I thought were good, aren't even on the same planet as the Legacys. I still am blown away every single time I fire them up. Legacy is known for producing a neutral sound...Oooh Ya!, dynamics... shocking! Soundstage...absolutely amazing! I have never experienced 2 speakers that produce such a wide and deep presentation. Sounds can appear off your shoulder 10 feet away, on the floor, or at the ceiling, floating in the air. Almost Dolby Atmos! Imaging is rock solid. The Tweeter never once has peeked out of the presentation, clarity is unbelievable, and accurate. The mid's are the star. Vocals are near perfect, drums are so tight and fast, bass is rock solid, and fast, keeps up with the mid's. Build quality, at less than 4 feet tall, weighing neat 90lbs they are like a slab of Granite. The natural walnut is flawless, nicest binding posts I have ever seen, they are absolutely first class. I could go on and on. To say I like them is a severe understatement. The combination of the NAD Masters series, the Tonewinner 5180 is excellent, tons of power, is a really good match. With only 5 ch. connected, watched Midway and Aquaman to start, .... all I can say HOLY @#%$. I couldn't believe only 5 ch. were working, sounded like my full 9 Atmos!! Yes, these speakers are that good! actually unbelievable. Legacy has really hit a sweet spot with the Classic HD, not too big, world class craftsmanship, and the "Legacy" sound!!
Aamir... your the best!!
