Richter Acous­tics Wiz­ard

Sound+Image - - News -

Richter Acous­tics it­self launched just be­fore the first is­sue of Sound+Im­age hit news­stands, so we’ve given it pole po­si­tion in our time-or­dered Ul­ti­mate 30, even though the Wiz­ard it­self is on the books as launch­ing in 1991. It went on to be­come pos­si­bly Aus­tralia’s best-sell­ing speaker ever, and a top value top per­former through five se­ries of Leg­end loud­speak­ers — the Mk2 ar­rived in 1999, the Mk3 in 2005, and just to con­fuse us, a Mk3.5 ver­sion in 2009, fol­lowed by the Mk4 in 2011 and the cur­rent pic­tured Leg­end Se­ries V Wiz­ard go­ing on sale in 2016. “Richter would no doubt in­voke the Wiz­ard’s in­can­ta­tion and say it’s ‘magic’,” wrote Greg Bor­row­man of the lat­est ver­sion, “but I tend to think that it’s the new ‘dream team’ of de­sign­ers that should be con­grat­u­lated on a job very well done.” It’s the first of our Sound+Im­age Ul­ti­mate 30.
