Our New Compact Floorstander
Smaller footprint than a standmount
Designed to give excellent bass performance in a smaller room
Smaller rooms can be difficult to find the right speaker for. Larger speakers are prone to be “boomy”, “Bookshelf” speakers can be difficult to locate in the right place. Whilst stand mount speakers can be clumsy and even hazardous in some situations.
Our new LA4 is a real space saver with a footprint of only 18 x 24 sq cm (less than ½ a square foot) and at only 86 cm tall is ideal where a larger speaker would be out of place. The MFV4’s 92dB efficiency means that it has only modest power requirements making it ideal for lower powered valve amplifiers.
A well designed efficient loudspeaker with a simple crossover will give vastly improved performance in terms of volume level, spatial image and a more solid controlled bass performance.
A simple yet effective crossover ensures that the signal transfer from the amplifier has the minimum impact in order that the amplifier can “see” the speaker drive units clearly without excessive distortion.
Icon Audio valve amplifiers have a reputation for excellent performance and build quality, but we are aware that they are not always matched to ideal loudspeakers thereby not optimising the sound.
The ease of driving means that as little as 15 watts will achieve an excellent volume ideal for large orchestral works in a large room.
The MFV 3 MKIII is also an ideal partner to lower powered SE valve, transistor or hybrid amplifiers. 300B 9w SE amplifiers for example have a breathtaking immediacy and dynamics.
