“Music is an Everyman´s Right.”
Everyman´s Right = Age-old code of behaviour, which allows
everyone to enjoy nature´s offerings regardless of legal ownership.
Most forests in Finland are privately owned yet we all have
equals rights to enjoy them.
Nature´s importance in providing direct livelihood has decreased.
Yet in the hectic modern world it is more important than ever
as a peaceful haven.
Music is like nature. It allows us to relax and recharge our batteries.
Music belongs to all of us. Music is an Everyman´s Right.
Those who prefer movies to music should remember that the
human voice is the greatest musical instrument.

Amphion creates loudspeaker solutions
which enrich peoples’ lives by providing a chance
for them to experience the beauty of pure,
natural sound in their own homes - at any time of the day.
Pure room acoustics
Room acoustics has a major impact on how the room sounds
and what it feels like. To produce
a purer, more natural sound despite changing room acoustics
Amphion uses innovative acoustic engineering called U/D/D

Pure driver Integration
The biggest challenge in loudspeaker design is integrating the various drivers into one
seamless product. Amphion propiatory waveguide provides a superior solution as it improves the coupling between the tweeter and the woofer over a broad frequency range.
Purer integration leads into purer, more natural sound.
The human sensory system is very precise at detecting time constants in music. By keeping things clean and tidy acoustically Amphion can avoid unnecessary corrections in the
electrical domain. The result is a more natural sound which allows deeper emotional
involvement and relaxation.
I was able to achieve the organic emotionality that I listen
for but never expected to hear at a trade show.”
Carlos Sanchez
”I am grateful to you for these wonderful little giants.”

Producer of singer songwriter Lori Lieberman
Pure imaging
Using the tweeter - the lightest possible driver - in the area where
human hearing is most precise (2-5kHz) leads to purer imaging. Due
to low moving mass the tweeter can be controlled far better than the
midrange drive unit ever could. Increased transient speed and low distortion figures lead into airy, immaterially musical experience.
This unrivalled pinpoint imaging and palpaple realistic three dimensionality allows you to ‘see’ the acoustics of famous concert hall or
placement of your favourite musicians on a stage. This crystal clear
sonic picture ads greatly to the magical illusion of ‘being there’.

“In particular, classical concerts are perfectly reproduced with a clear revelation of the room acoustics
in various concert halls.
It was fascinating to be able to recognize the
acoustics of the concert hall so precisely on the
Amphions and to hear the difference in room
acoustics between the (perhaps too) dry sound
from the new Danish concert hall and the more
open sound from the famous Berlin hall.”

Turn the volume down –
and still hear everything
The demands of daily life often leave us the wee hours to calm down.
While tired hearing unstressed natural sound becomes exceeding important. Amphion´s unstrained clarity and speech intelligibility are present at
surprisingly very low levels and contribute tremendously to the joys of
low-level listening during those late night movie or music sessions.
Pure and unstrained low-level qualities offers a way to enjoy the surprisingly high quality audio signal present in normal TV and radio programs.
The controlled and coherent soundfield created by Amphion´s controlled
dispersion is a blessing when you do not have time to sit down in one place
or want to improve your home´s atmosphere by playing something quietly
in the background.
Music´s miraculous constructive powers are often described by Amphion’s story from Greek
mythology. Amphion built walls around the city
Thebes just by playing this golden lyre.
Just as before, Amphion´s goal is to fortify our
lives against the hostile environment. Since 1998
Amphion Loudspeakers of Finland has been designing and manufacturing loudspeakers which
are made based on the requirements of human
hearing and demands of everyday living. We are
developing and manufacturing products which
allow us to experience music´s emtoive and psychological powers in our own homes. Something
we may need more now than ever before.
All our award winning products are proudly made
in Finland.
