A SOUND WITHOUT BRAKES

One hi-fi journalist defined the sound from the SR 3-series speakers like this: Sound without brakes!

By this he meant that everything sounds uncompressed and lively. The reason for this is that we have been fighting low efficiency for many years.

 

THE FIGHT AGAINST LOW EFFICIENCY

 

The fight against low efficiency is very important, because the worst enemy of both real life dynamics and the ability to play softly, yet open and detailed is – yes – low efficiency. 

 

THE EXPERTS ARE HAPPY

The SR 3 Super has enjoyed many great reviews. One claimed that it “...plays with a bigger soundstage and a more real life bass.” than the other combatants in this group test.

Being the father of the rest of the SR 3 range, the SR 3 Super is a great all-rounder. Bettered by its bigger SR 3 siblings, of course. But still great.  

 

The ingredients of the SR3 Super appear to be two 165mm main drivers, plus a solitary tweeter housed in a very attractively presented and reasonably compact floorstanding enclosure. The two sides are curved towards a narrower back to minimise internal standing wave focusing and the enclosure is mostly decorated in a smooth and very nicely finished real-wood veneer.

 

Rosewood with black features an extra silver painted half-baffle and thick back panel for additional stiffening, with exposed magnets holding the optional grille in place. 

 

A matching moulded plinth tilts the base slightly at the back (again to reduce standing wave focusing), and supplies an outlet for the port. This plinth accommodates the spikes securely and does also extend the footprint, but only slightly, so physical stability remains rather marginal.
