Krypton is Amphion’s reference project now close to 15 years in the making. The Krypton3 is highly innovative three-way reference speaker, which makes it possible to enjoy full range, realistic level orchestral performances without owning a concert hall.
Krypton3’s propriatory paper -papyrus 8″ midrange is actually many drivers in one and due to careful driver placement together with the tweeter forms a perfect time accurate point source which works from 160 Hz up. Inside the critical 600-2000 Hz the cone´s “ribs” transform the unit to work similarly to 4″, which leads to air and nuances, but will take full advantage of low distortion and high power handling of the 8″ units.
The midrange clarity coupled with the power which can be achieved by kryptons two 8″ units working in unison makes you wonder how you ever could live with the 6.5″ other manufacturers offer at this price point.
The highly innovative cardioid midrange allows Kryptons to perform well even in
- small rooms
- close to big windows
- under other acoustic irregularities, which traditional speakers cannot cope with.
Krypton3 reduces unwanted reflections from both the side and back walls (up to 20 dBs), so you can hear less of the room and more of the speaker.
In your current home. Or the next.
Amphion Krypton3 – A dream worth pursuing!
U/D/D stands for Uniformly Directive Diffusion. By creating even dispersion the anomalies caused by wall, floor and ceiling reflections are minimized. This allows the listener to hear less of their room and more of their music.
