Larsen Loudspeakers Now Available in the UK

Swedish loudspeaker brand, Larsen, introduced its floor-standing models to the UK at The Bristol Show 2016.

larsen4_bigDesigned to work with, rather than fight, sound reflections, Larsen’s loudspeakers stand flush against the rear wall of the listening room, and according to the company, uses the wall to create a deep and full bass from a compact cabinet. The loudspeaker’s drivers are flanked by absorption material to virtually eliminate the wall as a source of colouration. 

John Larsen, the designer behind the Larsen range, worked with Swedish engineer Stig Carlsson for sixteen years until Carlsson’s death in 1997. Carlsson invented the patented design principle used in Larsen’s speakers and was the man behind Sonab’s speakers in the ‘60s and ‘70s before creating his own line, Carlsson Ortho-Acoustic. Larsen has since expanded upon and enhanced the original Carlsson designs to produce three successor models: the entry-level Larsen 4.2 floorstander, the Larsen 6.2 floorstander and the flagship Larsen 8 floorstander. A range of SC surround sound/centre speakers completes the Larsen line.

Thanks to a new agreement with distributor Sound Fowndations, they are now available in the UK.
