Lowther Hegeman iconic loudspeaker returns after 50 years

Lowther has announced the revival of the legendary Hegeman speakers, marking a significant return after five decades. These iconic speakers are now available for purchase exclusively on a made-to-order basis. The company heralds the Hegeman as not merely a speaker system but as a benchmark for acoustic excellence.

Originally, the Lowther Hegeman was born from the iconic partnership between Donald Chave and Stuart Hegeman, designed to maximize the capabilities of the PM4 speaker. The rejuvenated versions of these speakers are outfitted with Lowther’s latest proprietary full-range drivers, propelling the Hegeman’s audio performance to unprecedented heights. This makes the new Hegeman an unparalleled acquisition for the discerning audiophile, representing a fusion of historical prestige and cutting-edge audio technology.

Originally, the Hegeman speakers featured a unique horn crafted from plaster, a choice that underscored their innovative design during their initial release. In the latest iteration, the developers have transitioned to a special flexible composite material, replacing the original’s brittle plaster. This modern material not only surpasses the durability and resilience of plaster but also establishes a new benchmark in acoustic performance. This advancement reflects a blend of honoring the past while embracing the future, ensuring the Hegeman speakers continue to set the standard in high-fidelity sound.

Despite the advent of new technologies, the Hegeman loudspeakers retain the aesthetic of their forebears, paying homage to classic designs and eco-friendly materials. The Lowther Hegeman is a testament to unparalleled craftsmanship and meticulous attention to every detail. Each Hegeman loudspeaker, with its magnetized components, is meticulously crafted in the UK, embodying the brand’s commitment to quality and sound excellence.

Skilled artisans devote extensive time and effort to construct the horn, showcasing the complexity and elegance of the handcrafted process. Every piece is precisely cut, assembled by hand, and finely tuned to deliver optimal sound quality, ensuring that each speaker emanates pure, undistorted audio.

Lowther has announced its intention to limit production to no more than four Hegeman loudspeakers annually. This decision underscores the importance of craftsmanship in their creation and ensures that each customer receives a true masterpiece. These exclusive, limited production runs highlight the unique value and unmatched sound quality that Lowther Hegeman speakers offer, making them highly coveted items among audiophiles and collectors alike.

Lowther Hegeman operate in the frequency range of 35 Hz – 20,000 Hz with a sensitivity of 98-105 dB and a nominal impedance of 8/15 ohms. Column dimensions – 1140 × 1130 × 600 mm, weight – 150 kg.
