Infinity: The Reference Standard Series
The Infinity Reference Standard, Reference Standard I and Reference
Standard IIb all are products of a single uncompromising goal. To achieve
nothing less than the finest musical accuracy ever attained by a speaker
system. Regardless of the cost. Regardless of the limits of existing
Beyond technology, where only music remains.
The Reference Standard IIb is a highly sophisticated adaption of the
technology used to create the Reference Standard I. As a statement of
advanced Infinity design it is truly remarkable. In each of two modules,
three EMIT tweeters and three EMIM midrange drivers combine precise
definition, instantaneous transient repsonse, and near-perfect dispersion
with an ability to handle great amounts of power. Two 10-inch polypropylene
woofers per channel reproduce musical signals without coloration at high
dynamic levels and low frequencies. Mathematically curved diffraction
control wings of solid oak ensure that subtle phase information is preserved
and not obscured by diffraction distortion.
A sophisticated low-frequency equalizer optimizes bass extension and
lets you control room-and-placement frequency anomalies. You can drive this
system with a single stereo amplifier, or bi-amp it, if you wish, by adding
an additional stereo amplifier.
As with the Infinity Reference Standard and the Reference Standard
I, the reality of the reproduced soundstage is startling.
