Richter - Australia's most successful speaker brand - is breaking all records again with the Legend range of speakers. The Floor-standing Harlequin is 'budget-priced' but don't let that fool you. With a good amplifier they can deliver top performance level on both music and movies.


The original Richter Harlequins were a real surprise package when first released in the early 1990's. The Wizards and Dragons were selling their socks off and we doubted whether there was a market for a slimline and compact floor-standing speaker. We admit, we got it totally wrong! All it did was see Richter go from strength to strength. We regularly see owners coming in for a new amplifier to suit their Harlequins which are still going strong after 20 years of enjoyment.

And that's what Richter’s Legend Series V is all about - the music – the sheer magic of your favourite listening delivered in astounding stereo high fidelity for decades to come. The V5 is also about improved levels of musicality and these are thanks to Richter’s brand new proprietary drivers and careful acoustic design. This has been 'cooking' in the research lab for the last two years and the team have adhered closely to Richter’s philosophy of musicality and affordability. If you want room-filling sound on a budget, Richter’s impressive Harlequins leave the majority of the competition way behind.

True 3-Way Design

The true three-way design features Richter’s top-of-the-line wide-dispersion soft-dome tweeters and the same powerful 105mm (4") bass and midrange drivers used in the flagship Dragons. The Harleuins are ideal for hi-fi stereo in a medium to large room or anchoring the sonic drama of your Home Theatre.

Tweeters: The soft-dome neodymium tweeters provide wide dispersion, producing a lively and spacious sound stage with smooth musicality, and a response extending well beyond human hearing.

Mid-Bass Drivers: The highly efficient 105mm (4") mid/bass drivers - yes, there are two in each enclosure) harness composite cones combining the natural acoustic finesse of paper with the strength of modern carbon- fibre technology. This produces ideal damping characteristics plus the coherence and timing essential to draw you into the music. The awesome bass is rich, deep and firm.

Crossover Network: You don't see this, but the crossover network or circuitry inside each enclosure is a key factor in any speakers performance. The all-new designed crossovers were painstakingly designed with feedback from a large team of audio specialists across Australia to produce emotional vocals, an astonishingly vivid sound stage and a smooth blending of frequencies. The highly stable off-axis response means the Legend V series maintain realism in a wide spectrum of listening environments – because everyone’s listening room is different.

Cabinets: The cabinets or enclosures as some call them have been completely redesigned using non-parallel panels to reduce 'standing waves' which are an annoying problem that every speaker maufacturer has to address if they want tight and accurately pleasing sound. Also invisible to the naked eye is the comprehensive bracing that has been positioned to minimise harmonics. Double thickness rear and front baffles and new high density damping makes these the most neutral and musical cabinets Richter have ever produced.

Our Take

The Richter design team is headed up by Dr. Martin Gosnell BE (Hons) PhD who has worked with Richter since approx. 2000 and is supported by the very experienced and highly respected Audio Engineer Brad Serhan. Together with the experience of audiophile owner John Cornell they have really set a new benchmark in Australian speaker design. You could pay a whole lot more for an international brand name and get not only an inferior product, but one that doesn't sound anywhere near any of the Richter Legend series. The Harlequins will also please your eyes with their classic yet contemporary looks – perfect for hi-fi stereo or anchoring your home theatre acoustics, without breaking the bank. Do yourself a favour, just come in and listen!
