The 99.25 LCR belongs to the third generation of the 99-Series, a speaker line famous for the outstanding quality of its drivers. To complement the technology inside, the speakers feature a gorgeous multilayer paint finish. In our view, they exceed any comparable offerings in their price range. In the case of the 99.25, the ribbon tweeter which is used originates from Fountek and is one of the best on the market. The ribbon is supported by a mid-bass driver from the well-known Norwegian driver manufacturer SEAS. Both drivers together create a perfectly balanced and accurate sound which let you detect every detail in your favourite music or movie. You will appreciate the speakers’ smooth and precise sound reproduction as well as the unique finish of these jewels.
Never judge a speaker by its size. This is the central message which you will understand when listening to the 99.25 LCR. The best drivers like the ribbon tweeter from Fountek and the mid-bass driver from SEAS ensure a superior and extremely precise sound experience. The ribbon tweeter is able to handle every impulse with maximum accuracy and at the same time produce outstanding dynamics. In combination with the extraordinarily fast acting SEAS Excel driver, the sound reproduction is absolutely natural and thus highly realistic.
To ensure perfect sound even in environments that can be challenging from an acoustical point of view, the 99.25 LCR provides you with several possibilities to adjust the sound characteristics. Using the supplied plug to close the bass reflex port, the speaker performs like a sealed speaker. The bass will be less deep but it will be more precise. If you want to place the 99.25 near a wall, this might be a good choice. Furthermore, the jumpers on the back of the speaker can be used to adjust the tweeter to perfectly tailor the sound to your room and taste.
Despite its small dimensions, the 99.25 weighs 11 kg showing that it is well built and reinforced. Most of its weight derives from the thick walls made from MDF which are at least 16 mm thick. These efforts ensure a maximum attenuation of standing waves and resonances inside the cabinet by optimizing the inner damping of the housing. Furthermore, the generously applied damping material helps to effectively reduce backwards radiated sound so the drivers work in the best possible environment.
