Philharmonic Audio

Philharmonic Audio Loudspeakers are designed to meet the needs of audio enthusiasts who value serious engineering over exotic wires, designer capacitors, or cabinetry fashion statements.  We strive to provide the most accurate loudspeakers possible at an affordable price.  Our prices range from $165/pr for the Affordable Accuracy Monitor to $3,300/pr for the top-of-the-line Philharmonic 3.

Our three-way floor-standing models feature an open-back midrange configuration to provide added depth and spaciousness to the soundstage without imposing restrictions on room placement.  These speakers also incorporate transmission line bass tuning optimized by Paul Kittinger, based on precise mathematical models developed by Martin King.  Paul also designed the transmission line cabinets for the popular Salk Song Tower and HT2 loudspeakers.  The crossover networks for all Philharmonic speakers were developed by Dennis Murphy, who has a proven track record in crossover designs for Salk Sound, Ellis Audio, and many popular public domain kits, such as the MBOW1 and CAOW1.  The cabinets for our 3-way speakers are hand-crafted to order in the USA.  Click on the "Cabinets" tab for details on the cabinet makers and available veneers.
