On the coaxial 2-way unit which is a heart of the speaker, the tweeter unit employs a new titanium dome tweeter to reproduce higher frequency up to 50kHz, while re-designed cabinet dimension provides optimal balance of high and low frequencies, in consideration of this extended frequency range. And it retains the excellent stereo location and mid-range expressiveness characteristic of the S-300NEO while realizing an even wider frequency range of 50Hz – 50kHz. The S-300HR provides a new dimension of expressiveness and high-performance, enabling the transmission of Hi-Res Audio sources without losing their fine nuances and details.

With the goal of neutral sound performance – flat and free from coloration – the S-300HR employed a simplified cross-over network circuit design that performs -6dB/oc. In order to maximize sound quality on the simple circuit design, Air-core Coils and High-quality Film Capacitors are employed to eliminate magnetostrsiction.
For the protection of the delicate titanium dome of the tweeters –which is susceptible to damage or dent – the S-300HR employs stainless steel grilles with a unique opening-pattern that combines both strength and greater opening ratio. This unique geometric opening-pattern is only available with high-precision etching technics, as a conventional punching method can’t.
A newly re-designed speaker unit is based on the 130mm coaxial 2-way unit previously developed for the celebrated S-300NEO. Since the both woofer and tweeter units exist on exactly the same position from audiences, the outstanding sound-positioning and rich texture of the sound that exceeds expectations for its size have not changed. Also, same as the S-300NEO, it employs the Air-Dump Center Pole System that distributes a perfect power balance to the both woofer and tweeter units, in order to perform them under the ideal conditions, while the new tweeter unit with titanium dome extends its frequency response up to 50kHz that is an important range to reproduce fine nuances of Hi-Res Audio sources.
A combination of robust cabinet enclosure made with high-density MDF, and bass-reflex port on the back panel maximize its sound performance.
Furthermore, not only the location and the diameter/length of the bass-reflex duct, a distribution of dumpers and installation of acoustic absorbent on suitable location are carefully designed to perform rich-textured sound, particularly in low frequency range. Compared to the S-300NEO, the overall height has increased by 20mm for optimal balance between low frequency and extended high frequency by new coaxial 2-way unit.
On the cherry model, veneer panel with beautiful natural wood-grain is laid on the high-density MDF cabinet, and repeated painting and polishing several times for luxurious finish. This finish is not only for beautiful appearance, but also protect the speakers from changes caused by time, so you will be able to enjoy using them for a long time.
Magnetic attachments are employed for the speaker grilles, so clasps are unnecessary. Since nothing protrudes from the front baffle but the coaxial unit, the flat design is preserved and the beautiful appearance is maintained even if the grille is removed.
3-point spikes can be attached or removed for the further and finer tuning of the sound in the final step of the installation, depending on a hard-wood floor or on a carpet. Metal bases are also included to protect surface of the floor.
The large-size speaker terminals supports bi-wiring connection with multiple amplifiers, one for woofer unit, and another for tweeter unit. Each speaker terminal finished with gold-plated is compatible with Banana plug for easy and assured connection.
To maintain its luxurious finish, a cleaning cloth made of micro-fibre is included.
