Radiance Series

Three years in the making, the Radiance Series builds on lessons learned in creating the highly regarded Reference AE1MkIII SE’s and takes loudspeaker performance a step further…

Designed as a no-compromise, high-end loudspeaker range for both stereo and home cinema applications, in creating the Radiance Series we have gone “back to our roots”. Following principals first laid out in our original, award-winning AE1 loudspeaker (first produced in 1987) and utilising some of the technological leaps made in the very latest mkIII SE version – the Radiance Series encompasses the acquired expertise of over 20 years experience in loudspeaker craftsmanship.

Radiance 1

Radiance 1

The Radiance 1’s are the entry level loudspeakers in the Radiance Series.

This is, of course, just in stature – every aspect of the “1’s” performance is simply stunning given their compact dimensions. These are speakers which don’t have to try to impress with a “big” sound from a small box, they just impress full-stop.

If Home Theatre is more your thing, the “1’s” are more than up to the job of providing rear channel sound in a Radiance 5.1 set-up – in fact they are just as capable providing all 5 main channels if space is at a premium!
