Following in the footsteps of the highly acclaimed LRS, the LRS+ takes it up a notch.
"This is another slam-dunk POY (Product of the Year) nominee, and, IMO, the best buy (along with the MG1.7i) in an affordable loudspeaker for modest-sized rooms.” 2022 Golden Ear Award. Jonathan Valin, October 7th, 2022
What is a ribbon speaker?
Ribbon and electrostatic speakers are elegant and simple. The air is moved and sound waves are created by moving an ultra-light film or aluminum ribbon. Ultra-low mass
enables the ribbon to respond quickly to the electrical signal from the amplifier. What you hear is higher definition.
The LRS (Little Ribbon Speaker) is a full-range quasi-ribbon speaker that was designed from the ground up to give you a pretty good idea what to expect from the 20.7 or 30.7. The LRS was designed using high-end electronics and mono blocks. The LRS will perform nicely with a receiver, but it was intentionally designed to extract the most from high-end amplifiers and electronics. The LRS expects more from a properly designed high-current amplifier. That is a radical departure from most entry-level loudspeakers. If you put your expensive high-end amplifier on the LRS, you will hear the difference.

Mcleans LRS Customer Review - by Lee H.
"I am an avid listener of finely recorded music, and therefore I need a stereo system that can accurately reproduce what the musicians and engineers passionately record. Over the decades, I’ve owned some excellent speakers, but these Magnaplanars stand out from the crowd with their transparent, clear, accurate and, most importantly, pleasing sound…and great looks.
And boy can they fill a large room with pristine tone, capturing all the nuances of a great recording. Take, for example, Ricky Lee Jones’s Pop Pop classic album: a masterpiece of simplicity and sonic purity. This was the first album I tried out on these speakers, and one wonders immediately why they call these “Little”. Highly recommended." (Thanks Lee!)
