Selecting components

Because Legend loudspeakers are so transparent to musical signals fed to them, their performance will be limited by the quality of the other components in your hifi system. There is no heirachy of importance of hifi components because the hifi chain is only as strong as its weakest link. Any distortion of the sound by any equipment in this chain cannot be corrected by other equipment in the chain. Legend loudspeakers will be a strong link.

We therefore recommend that you use Legend loudspeakers with other high quality equipment. To get the best balance in a stereo system, you should aim to spend about 25% of your budget on your sources (CD player etc), 25% on your amplifier and 40% on your Legend loudspeakers, with the remaining 10% on good quality interconnects and cables.

To get the best from Legend loudspeakers, the equipment you use should have the same fast open sound as them, without hardness or brashness. Athough the list below is by no means exhaustive, some equipment which has been found to work well with Legend loudspeakers are:
