The Phoenix S builds on the virtues of the Axia S, presenting the listener with an extended palette of natural tonal colours, voices with more body, a larger space and a greater musical involvement. With the addition of a second (front) neodymium magnet – intimately positioned, 5N silver wire coil and a lower internal impedance, the Phoenix S creates an unprecedented focus of the magnetic field, ensuring that the harmonically rich temporal puzzle that is music, is recreated coherently.
