A product platform unequalled in terms of aesthetics, build quality, sonic performance and technology. A passion to advance the field of audio motivated engineer Bill Dudleston to combine his efforts with those of a stubborn Dutch craftsman, Jacob Albright. From a garage amidst the cornfields of the mid-west, they began their remarkable quest. An uncanny understanding of physics and fluid modeling, combined with good old-fashioned hard work and craftsmanship, allowed the team to first produce the renowned Legacy-1. Word soon spread through audiophiles and the press of a little company in Illinois who designed the world’s best loudspeakers. Legacy Audio continues to push the envelope in acoustic design. Just as in the beginning, our doors are open and all are invited to hear our fine products and see how they are built. We continue to focus on customer service, and still build each pair of loudspeakers as though we were building them for ourselves.
