The Argos takes our venerable DA-1.1 to the next level, incorporating the sculpted baffle of the Athena, rigid hardwood back of the Ulysses, a taller cabinet with heavy maple mass in the base as well as extensive bracing. These changes bring more detail, clarity and superior imaging without sacrificing the incredibly wide sweet spot of the DA-1.1. The larger, stiffer cabinet brings tighter and more extended bass, a more balanced sound overall.
The Argos is a speaker that wraps its arms around you with a full rich tonality without compromising clarity and detail. In short a slightly romantic speaker that is still balanced and accurate. The room size wide sweet spot of the Argos makes this a great choice for those who include a home theater with their two channel.
"In terms of detail, speed, dynamic range, openness, and extension at the frequency extremes, the Daedalus won the day. And the way the Argos v.2s handled voices and acoustic piano had me coming back for listen after listen, pulling out favorite after favorite to rediscover."
