We are pleased to add the Lii-Song (previously called Lii-Audio) flagship loudspeaker to our family of speakers here at DECWARE and invite you to make a listening appointment as soon as possible!
In fact, this is a speaker I can recommend to our customers without too much worry about how it will sound in their home. All you need is a medium or large sized room that's not too bright and a good Decware amplifier and you WILL be happy with the results because the performance of this speaker is pretty unbeatable with low power tube gear.
The exotic drivers used in these speakers cost $1200 a pair by themselves! They are worth every penny. They possess simply stunning fidelity on every level.
Add to this the custom curved cabinets they are installed in and you have one of the all time best values in hi-fi because these complete speakers can be delivered to your door for $3900 / pair.

The cone material is unrivaled with no sound of its own. Gone is the dryness... gone is the shout... gone is the peaky response. Just beautiful liquidity from a single point-source that spans from 32 Hz to 20 kHz when you use a good tube amplifier or similar quality solid state!
SENSITIVITY and POWER
Because these are 100dB sensitive they get loud with small amounts of power meaning that the speaker cone doesn't move much like it would if it were less efficient with higher power amplifiers driving them. This means there is no 'Doppler distortion' in the midrange like some would suggest. There might be if you tried to play outdoors at concert sound pressure levels but in your home you couldn't get anywhere close to that level without earplugs. Power handling is 25~50 watts.
These are large vented cabinets designed by the same genius that created the drivers. This means that he understands there can be no back wave reflections inside the cabinet with such a thin cone material. Instead of stuffing the box full of fiberglass which only kills dynamics, he designed the shape to reflect everything to the exact center of the box where the waves become scalar which is to say cancels itself out. It's a very Zen way of doing things... probably why we like it so much!
This is where it just gets crazy... as you know the vast majority of single-driver designs are tipped towards the treble and lack bass response which always leads to bass augmentation with a subwoofer or additional bass drivers in additional cabinets.
Not here! This loudspeaker's bass response will literally humiliate a subwoofer. When you hear 32Hz with the speed of this driver and the PERFECT harmonics with the rest of the music since it is ALL coming from a single voice-coil, you're just going to shake your head in disbelief.
Playing music with low bass on these speakers can shake your entire house without sounding compressed or forced and without even having to be turned up loud! Best of all they can do this easily with only a 2 watt Zen Triode Amplifier. This is the magic of a real box! By that we mean a large ducted cabinet reminiscent of the 1950's and 60's cabinet designs -- before the trend to downsize speakers became popular in late 1960's with the advent of solid state amplifiers.
There aren't many single driver full-range crossoverless loudspeakers that go from 32Hz~20kHz with a 100dB sensitivity that we know of. This is a stunning way to show off even our 2.3 watt amplifiers. In fact a pair of these on our small SET amps will sound like you have 100's of watts on tap and a seriously good subwoofer going. This is why we have gone out of our way to partner with Lii Song to bring you this sure to be legendary loudspeaker.
Another big attraction with these speakers is that a pair can usually be in your home around 8 weeks from the time you placed your order.
Lii Song is a small family business located in China and who hand-makes their designs with pride and integrity -- like Decware but with the advantage of being able to produce a product for less than half the price that it would cost here in the USA. And they have timeless experience in exotic papers which is a large part of the magic of good sounding speaker cones of which these are the absolute best we've heard.
