Auditorium Series
It's important to anyone with a passion for music that their hi-fi system has a natural tonal balance and more importantly an even and consistent dynamic balance. Many people, and technophiles in particular, believe that this balance can be achieved through objective quantitative analysis.
At Living Voice we have a different outlook. We develop our products using our musical sensibility, and we measure our progress against the artistic expression and emotional communication that we are able to realise in recordings of significant musical performances.
The Auditorium Series consists of 4 models with the option of inboard (IBX) or outboard (OBX) crossover electronics on the two top models.

AUDITORIUM

The Auditorium is designed to preserve and convey the artistic merit, energy and nuance in a musical performance.

While this may seem a stunningly obvious goal for a manufacturer to strive for, in practice many loudspeakers discard much of this vitality and expressiveness in pursuit of a ‘better’ technical specification.

AUDITORIUM AVATAR
The Avatars build on the fundamental qualities of the Auditorium to provide a more refined, sophisticated loudspeaker for a serious and demanding music lover.

Possessing a broader tonal palette and greater degree of ‘organisation’ and musical insight,the Avatar provides body, weight and purpose which add a physical believability to the musical experience.
The Avatar OBX-R2 is a natural evolution of the standard Avatar. There are many differences and refinements – the most obvious being the use of external crossovers for optimum performance (OBX variant) and the employment of the exceptional Scanspeak Revelator high frequency unit.

Such refinement means the OBX-R2 is stable, organised and unfatiguing. The speaker presents music in a manner which has consistent, believable proportions and maintains natural dynamic relationships. Music that you had previously regarded as indifferently performed or poorly recorded can often become highly accessible, convincing and engaging. Music you have always loved can find fresh expression and meaning.

AUDITORIUM AVATAR IBX*/OBX-RW
The RW loudspeaker is the ultimate expression of our Auditorium design.

The result is a speaker which simply lets more music flow through, offering a palpable performance of coherence, scale and musical significance irresistible to a true music lover.

Vox Olympian

A marque of excellence.
The Vox Olympian is our most recent and single-minded horn design to date, taking this venerable technology into new uncharted territory.


The Vox Olympian transports you to the time and place of the original musical performance, a huge ‘walk-in’ three- dimensional sound world, with radiant tonality and natural dynamic energy. It is a captivating, otherworldly musical experience that completely transcends the here and now.


The unique organic shape and noble materials evoke the golden age of empirical science; the spirit of the gentleman explorer; an outward looking, optimistic era when anything was considered possible. The physical quality of the Vox Olympian radiates these values and resolves form and function seamlessly into a sculptural, harmonious whole.


Made exclusively by hand in England, each pair of cabinets takes 5 skilled artisans 2,000 man hours to build; 1,400 hours for the cabinets alone and 600 hours for the bronze, silver and gold work – executed with absolute attention to detail.

Is this the world’s best loudspeaker? In truth, it’s not for us to say, we prefer to leave it for others to judge.
