Leon Speakers today announced the introduction of two new product lines, Leon LX and Leon Classic. Leon’s LX collection is aimed at the luxury custom installation market while Leon Classic is for everyone else.
Leon’s new LX line, which stands for “Luxury Experience,” replaces many of their current offerings, and features a new design that is both slimmer and Leon says is easier to install. Most of the speakers are physically thinner, and due to improvements to their bracketry and cabinet design, will be up to 25 percent slimmer once installed. They’ve restyled the design of the speaker cabinets and incorporated new materials to meet their sonic signature. For the installers, they’ve relocated terminal cups and added wire management. Finally, Leon says its increased the audio performance of every channel in every cabinet across its entire Horizon, Profiile and Detail Series of hand-made speakers.
Leon’s new Classic line is a departure from their custom built-to-order process and an answer to consumer demand for Leon’s sound quality and style with competitively priced speakers, in-stock and ready to ship. Every product in the Classic Series is still handcrafted in the Ann Arbor, Michigan facility, however. Each speaker features 3″ woofers and 1″ cloth-dome tweeters in a cabinet less than 3″ deep. The Horizon Classic series includes fixed-width LCR soundbars in two different sizes to accommodate TVs 40″ to 70″ wide, starting at $995 list. For those that prefer more separation or discrete channels, the Profile Classic is also available in two sizes, capable of installing vertically on either side of the display or horizontally below the TV as a center channel. The Profile Classic starts at $595 list per channel. Finally, the Detail Classic features a sonically-matched on-wall surround speaker that can round out a five-channel system in any room, starting at $395 list per channel. All of the Classic Series speakers ship in 1-2 days and include mounting brackets to mount the speakers directly to the wall.
