Emotiva Airmotiv Speakers!

Emotiva has introduced a line of extremely affordable loudspeakers, using ribbon tweeters no less! These models do not have amplifiers on board, so don’t confuse them with the POWERED guys Emo has on its site for studio use. These models are designed for home use, surround or stereo. These speakers have very extended high frequency response as a result of using the ribbons. You’ll find they sound quite clear, even with modest electronics- which includes light weight surround receivers.

T-1 Towers, $700 Per Pair


1” Ribbon Tweet, 5 ¼ Woven Fiber Mid, Two 6” Woven Fiber woofs
37 5/8h, 8/3w, 11 5/8d
The T-1 Tower competes very well on its own for stereo or surround applications. T-1 is spacious on top- not dark. While it can be driven easily by a modest amp, it can deliver authoritative
bass when driven by something muscular like Emo’s A300 or A500 amps. If you are running a relatively modest receiver and want to make a BIG improvement in the clarity of your system, you should be thinking of upgrading to the T-1s!

B-1 Bookshelf, $300 Per Pair


1” Ribbon Tweet, 5 ¼ Woven Fiber Bass/mid
10 3/4h, 7 1/8w, 8 1/4d
B-1 is similar to T-1 without the deep bass. It is very open on top which lends excellent clarity to music at low volume- as well as high. If you’re looking for an articulate shelf speaker for lower volumes it’s a great choice! When you compare B-1 to most shelf speakers, the other guys will sound like there’s a hood on them.

C-1 Center, $250 Each


1” Ribbon Tweet, Two 3” Woven Fiber Bass/mid
8 3/8h, 20 1/2w, 8 1/4d

E-1 Slim Line Wall Mounts, $270 Per Pair


1” Ribbon Tweet, 4” Woven Fiber Bass/mid
13h, 6 1/4w, 4d
What a creative little devil! With keyhole mounting, it’s only 4” deep and works ON or near a back wall. Can be used for surrounds, or even fronts if you have a sub.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Airmotiv S10 Subwoofer $550


10” Active woof, 350w amp Class A-B
16 1/4h, 14w, 15 7/8d, 55lbs
This guy has a rich, warm presence in the bass. Ideal mate to above models for home
theater or stereo.
 

 

 

 

 

 

Mobile Fidelity StudioDeck Turntable With StudioTracker Cartridge $1150

I’ll bet you vinyl lovers know the name Mobile Fidelity. MoFi made state of the art LPs
back in the day. MoFi CONTINUES to make AND distribute the best vinyl our industry has seen.

It has been a goal of MoFi to come out with its own line of turntables & cartridges. They have just shipped their entry level model, StudioDeck turntable with StudioTracker Cart. The cartridge line is unique in that all models use TWO magnets to focus energy more precisely than if they used one. This emulates the operation of the MoFi cutter head used in the actual LP production process.

Mozart Piano Concerto #26

The score shows a large blank space in the piano portion. Why?
Mozart was such a creative genius that he would improvise. While literally every other composer wrote the music down, or at least outline ideas, such hints weren’t necessary for the Mighty Mozart.
Contemporaries marveled at how he could play the concerto the same way, or differently, as the mood struck. Too bad cassette recorders weren’t around in the late 1700s!
