Product Overview

Amphion Argon1 is the middle of three bookshelf loudspeakers in Amphion's mid-level Argon series designed for both stereo and home theatre applications. Sharing the same dimensions and design with the lower-priced Helium510, the Argon1 switches the latter's paper woofer unit for an aluminum unit.
The Argon series loudspeakers employ design and technologies from the company's professional studio monitor line: While the smaller bookshelf and the center channel speakers use traditional vented design, the larger models feature rear-firing passive radiators that avoid common issues associated with bass reflex designs and make placement easier.
Like other Amphion loudspeakers, a 1600Hz crossover is chosen to allow the tweeter and the woofer(s) work as a single point source. The specifically designed waveguide reduces the "sweet spot" effect.
The Argon series also include two other bookshelf speakers, Argon0 and Argon3S, two floorstanders, Argon3LS and Argon7LS, and one center channel, Argon5C.

Reviewers from whathifi have found the following***:
Amphion Argon1 are 32cm tall and 27cm deep. They are the second smallest offering in Amphion's bookshelf range, after the tiny Argon0. Amphion promises reference-quality midrange and deep bass from the Argon1's 13cm aluminium-coned driver, which sits below a 25mm titanium dome tweeter.
