These horns turn the audio world upside down! They possess a lifelike soundstage unlike anything ever heard. With the Little Horn Speakers, the soundstage gets bigger, the instruments spread apart, and the stage unfolds.
A special inverted design enables the low frequencies to emerge at the top of the enclosure. An octagonally fluted horn carries them upward and lets them flourish into the room. The immense structural rigidity of the horns octagonal geometry minimizes resonances yet allows sound waves to expand freely the way nature intended. There is simply something beautiful here, not just bass frequency reproduction, but a spatial imaging that belies the speaker's size.
The Little Horns can be used with almost any stereo system, and are also uniquely suited to low-power (10-watts or less per channel), single-ended triode (SET) tube amplifiers - a standard for audiophiles everywhere. Pair these speakers with our matching stereo tube amplifier and create a unique ensemble that an iPod or other sound source can be plugged directly into.
Or for a minimalist setup, pair the Little Horns with Specimen's satellite/sub-woofer. This self-contained unit connects directly to your iPod, mp3 player, computer, CD player, or other sound source. It is a small, 11-inch cube containing a 50-watt sub-woofer and two 25-watt satellite feeds for the Little Horns.
For those seeking extra slam below 100 hertz, the Little Horns can be used in conjunction with our 300-watt Subwoofer. Also built using the same Baltic Birch, this 14-inch unit can be finished to match your Little Horns and hooks up directly to your amplifier.
Specimen created a custom stereo system for the Angels & Kings penthouse suite at Hard Rock Hotel Chicago. The system includes a pair of Little Horn Speakers, Hi-Fi Stereo Tube Amp and 300-watt Subwoofer. Guests can simply plug in their iPhone, Android, or computer and enjoy.
