Amphion’s Home Audio Loudspeakers Will Now Get the Royal Treatment From Playback Distribution in The U.S.

The Finnish loudspeaker manufacturer has a new lease on life here in the U.S. and we have a number of reviews planned for 2024.

There are a lot of distributors of high-end audio in North America, but not all of them do such a great job. Yes — we just said that. Whilst they might be a dedicated group of people who care passionately about music playback, we have a long list of companies who have dropped the ball with specific brands over the years and not given some excellent products the right kind of exposure and distribution.

With this in mind, Finland-based Amphion Loudspeakers have announced a new partnership with Playback Distribution, which will make their home audio speaker lineup more widely available in the U.S.

Why does this matter?

Amphion is one of those brands with a very strong reputation in the pro audio world that does not get enough attention from North American media outlets and consumers; and that’s totally on all of us because their home and pro audio products are superb.

We are planning on reviewing at least 3 of their loudspeakers in 2024.

The Florida International Audio Expo (February 16 through 18th 2024 in Tampa, FL) is where the Amphion/Playback Distribution is kicking things off.

The highlight of the Amphion exhibit will be the U.S. exhibition debut of the Krypton 3X.

First shown at High-End Munich 2023, the Krypton 3X is the updated 3-way flagship loudspeaker that amplifies Amphion’s expertise with a design 25 years in the making. 

The Krypton3X is a full-range floorstanding passive speaker that is designed to deliver strong impact and nuance throughout its frequency range. 

The Krypton3X brings a highly innovative update by incorporating a new state-of-the-art tweeter and low crossover point inside a unique cardioid cabinet design to minimize unwanted reflections, making any room fit to handle the updated speaker. 

Available in Standard White, Black, and Walnut from $24,000/pair.
