Castle Richmond Anniversary Loudspeakers
The Castle Richmond is somewhat of a cult item among hi-fi enthusiasts – known for its exceptionally natural reproduction of musical instruments and voices in a compact studio monitor format. Castle proudly re-introduces this legendary model in a collector’s anniversary edition with refinements to the cabinet design, voicing and finished in a luxurious lacewood veneer.
Ultra-Transparent Audiophile Grade Components
Crossover components have been chosen for their transparency and include silicon-ireon laminated core bass inductors, generously oversized air core inductors and Castle’s proprietary polypropylene low-loss capacitors. Placing the treble unit below the bass unit provides a degree of time alignment between the units allowing the phase accurate crossover, with linkwitz-riley acoustic slopes, to move the stereo soundstage well outside the plane of the loudspeakers. In addition the treble units are offset to scatter front baffle reflections, enhanced by the new, profiled edges of the cabinet. Richmond Anniversary speakers are supplied in handed pairs to give a precisely focused soundstage. Input to the crossover and drive units are now via updated bi-wire terminals which accept bare wires, spade lugs, pins or 4mm plugs allowing for your preference of cable.
The Beautiful Veneers used for all Castle loudspeakers are specially chosen by trained craftsmen
Each leaf of veneer is selected by eye to suit the size of the cabinet and each pair of cabinets is manufactured in mirror-matched pairs. Castle selects the finest crown cut quality veneers making sure you find the Castle Richmond Anniversary a feast for both your eyes and your ears.
