    BONUS audiophile products shipped with each pair of speakers:

    AUDIO-CD -- a compact disc for testing of hearing and monitoring of hearing changes (both TTS & PTS). Also very useful in calibration of safe volume levels and testing of the audio system and speaker performance. $39.95 US value
    CD-CHECK -- a compact disc for precise evaluation of tracking and error correction capabilities of CD and DVD players. This is an essential tool in CD player evaluation, testing and maintenance.Use it to ensure 100% of sound reproduction. $39.95 US value
    "Songs for Manhattan" -- audiophile-grade CD recording of jazz piano vituoso from New York, Adam Makowicz (who considers it one of his best recordings). This CD is great for evaluation of the entire sound system and speakers since piano sound is hard to reproduce. $19.95 US value
    Unity 8' long cable set -- to eliminate guesswork when selecting cables for the LaHave Audio speakers, we supply a high-quality set free of charge. Unity, 11-gauge speaker cables are custom-made for us in Canada using oxygen free high conductivity copper with a 99.99997% purity. Cables are insulated with nylon, and then covered with a PVC jacket, topped off with an esthetically pleasing silver and black mesh sleeve that also prevents abrasion. Supplied connectors are gold BFA banana plugs which fit all modern posts, including those from Europe and Japan. $99.95 US value.

    Developers Note
    The Reference 2 is a more conventional wide-dispersion 2-way reflex. It uses a low crossover frequency and along with the extraordinary tweeter mated to the robust 6.5-inch woofer yields a very linear, wide dispersion system. As is the case with all LaHave Audio loudspeaker systems, it is designed for the eye as well as ear. All elements of Reference 2 speakers are chosen from a non-compromising (cost no object) standpoint. All decisions relating to driver matching and room loading have been based on extensive psychoacoustic considerations and voicing.

    Speaker Stands
    All our products are available with matching stands. Starting at $500.00, please inquire for your price.
