The Magneplanar LRS Loudspeakers have arrived (finally!).

Posted on September 25th, 2020

In the words of Magnepan, the (L)ittle (R)ibbon (S)peaker 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.”
MSRP – $995.00 plus GST.

ERNEST CHARLES GAGNON (ERNIE) – REST IN PEACE

Posted on June 6th, 2020

It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our dear friend and colleague Ernie at the age of 63.

Ernie joined us in 2002 and worked diligently, tenaciously and without complaint. He was generous of spirit, a great raconteur, with a fine sense of humour.

To quote the Gagnon family, he “was a lone wolf, but always an integral part of the pack. He lived the life he chose, with his family being priority #1.”

He will be genuinely missed by all us at the Ark.

May our friend rest in peace.
