Oval 30 Ribbon

The Oval 30 Ribbon is designed for use in a Coaxial Ribbon LineSource system but will work exceptionally well in any conventional Ribbon application.  It has the high and linear impedance and the expected transparency, dynamics and detail from a Newform Ribbon.  A low crossover point makes it easy to work with any midbass of 7" or under.

Ribbon Monitor 58

Ribbon Monitor 58

The Ribbon Monitor 58 produces Ribbon transparency from a highly aesthetic package.  This is the smallest loudspeaker you can buy with a full 8" Ribbon tweeter.  It's small footprint and wide dispersion allow great placement flexibility while still maintaining a superb soundstage.  The use of a 8" Ribbon and single 5" heavy duty Peerless woofer assures high dynamics and great clarity.  Bass reach is exceptional in this size of loudspeaker.

The Ribbon Monitor 58 can be used in virtually all rooms in most ranges of systems from pure stereo in a dedicated music system to full surround sound in a large home theater system.  A subwoofer would be required in larger rooms or in a home theater installation.

As with all Newform Ribbon loudspeakers, superb results can be achieved with a wide range of tube and solid state electronics.

R45 Ribbon

The R45 is a classic design Ribbon used on our R645v3 model.  It has thousands of fans around the world.


The R45 is designed as a top mount Ribbon for use above the cabinet housing the midbasses.  Good efficiency, wide dispersion and superb soundstaging are the basis for the R45s classic status.


Simply put, nothing gets out of the way of the music like an R45 system.


For speaker kit builders, a simple 6dB (single capacitor) crossover and good quality midbasses are pretty much the only ingredients necessary to assure superbly musical results.  Aim for a crossover of around 1kHz and when placing the speakers, try and give them as much air as possible.  Very high end audio in a stereo or home theater system can be achieved with very modest effort and investment.

Ribbon 8 Baffle Mount

Ribbon transparency with baffle mount practicality and aesthetics.  The Ribbon 8 allows a speaker kit builder to make a conventional looking speaker cabinet with the detail of a large planar loudspeaker.

The Ribbon 8 has very high impedance, good efficiency and, like all Newform Ribbons, has no transformer or need to re-stretch the diaphragm.  Like the rest of it's family, the R8 offers very high dynamics and very wide horizontal dispersion.

When coupled with 6 1/2" or smaller midbass drivers, the R8 will deliver seamless off axis dispersion for a very broad sweetspot.

This allows a more conventional speaker system to be built around it, whether for high fidelity stereo or audiophile home theater. 

The Ribbon 8 is practical Ribbon magic - a superb Ribbon tweeter that is easy to install and easy to integrate with any quality midbass driver due to its high sensitivity and low crossover point. 

Why settle for a dome tweeter when you can have the musical transparency and room acoustics advantages of a very dynamic Ribbon?


Oval 15 Ribbon

The Oval 15 is designed for use in a Coaxial Ribbon LineSource system but will work exceptionally well in any conventional Ribbon application.  Very high impedance and the expected transparency, dynamics and detail from a Newform Ribbon.  A low crossover point makes it easy to work with any midbass of 7" or under.

Ribbon Pyramid 8

The Pyramid 8 takes the musical ability of the Pyramid 45 and packs it into an aesthetic package of broader appeal.   It is made for the seated listener looking for an extremely high level of musical purity in their stereo audio system or home theater surround sound system.  Suitable for any corner of a surround sound or two channel hifi system, the Pyramid 8 offers a very high level of dynamics and transparency and large acoustic footprint into a very small physical footprint.

Ribbon Pyramid 45

A stand-alone speaker of unique visual and musical character, the Pyramid 45 will serve beautifully in a stereo hifi or home theater with audiophile capability.  Very high output levels combined with a superbly musical character, the Ribbon Pyramid offers fine transparency at high volumes or low.  A broadly accomplished loudspeaker with a very small footprint given it's musical potential.





LineSource Monitor Triple

The LineSource Monitor is quite a powerful package to start with and when stacked 3 high, (or four - really the ceiling is the limit), takes control of a rooms acoustics as few other loudspeakers can.   It virtually eliminates ceiling and floor reflections while establishing a very broad and deep soundstage over a large listening area.  The listening area is both wide and tall allowing movement without a loss of musical enjoyment for a considerable number of people.  In a public assembly area, the Triple Stacked LSM offers excellent musical coverage and speech intelligibility in rooms to 2000 square feet and audiences up to 80 people.  Tremendous dynamic capability with the expected Ribbon transparency and detail.  A world class loudspeaker with a down home price. 

No Holds Barred LineSource Monitor Triple

A world class loudspeaker system suitable for any room with any electronics, the NHB LineSource will reveal the musical potential of the upstream electronics and the nuances of the music being played to the greatest extent possible.   The NHB version of the Stacked LSMs has all of the advantages of their smaller sibling but adds slightly larger cabinets plus the bass extension and increase transparency of the famous ScanSpeak Revelator 5" midbasses.  


Being LineSource Monitors, there is no limit to the configuration options from the point of view of height, full length Ribbons and finish.   Since the systems have very high impedances as well as efficiency, there is very little in the way of restriction in the choice of amplifiers from single ended tube amps to digital ICE amps to behemoth Class A amplifiers.


Given the low end extension and dynamic capability of the NHBs, if you decide a subwoofer is required, the choice is wide open as integration is simplified by the low crossover point.


Room correction?  Audiophiles know that the less work room correction systems have to do the lower the strain will be on the amplifiers and the computing resource of the correction system.   Transparency of the whole system can only be improved by the high level of reflection control of the No Holds Barred Line Sources.


Ultra audio performance at audiophile prices.  Simple systems built to a very high standard which work extraordinarily well.

LineSource Monitor 528

The 528 features dual Peerless heavy duty 5" midbass drivers and large 8" Ribbon driver, all in a compact package suitable for any point of a stereo hifi or home theater system.  All the capabilities of it's single midbass sibling the LSM 58 but with added bass reach and dynamics.

The LSM 528 can form the core of an impressive home theater or stereo audiophile system with modest amplifiers or receivers.   Call or email us for component advice.
