American speaker builder Rockport Technologies says it took two years to develop its latest speaker. The new Lynx is a floorstander and it has been shown to the audience of the High End audio fair in Munich. The housing is made from one piece of aluminum.

The designers say the Lynx is an example of Rockport’s emphasis on full-range speakers that deliver exceptional musical performance while maintaining a homely and friendly footprint. Andrew Payor, founder and director of technology at Rockport, states: “The Lynx is unparalleled in its ability to convey the majesty of music from such a surprisingly compact enclosure. The Lynx marks the first time we’ve been able to trickle down technology from our flagship Lyra into a speaker that fits comfortably in any home. As with the Lyra, the fundamental absence of cabinet-induced noise has a profound effect on the Lynx’s musical presentation, delivering an incredibly low noise floor, unparalleled dynamic contrasts and astonishing low-level information retrieval. Like the Lyra, the Lynx’s new DAMSTIF3 housing has no joinery, no fasteners, and simultaneously achieves the multiple goals of maximum damping, stiffness and mass.”

With a ‘form follows function’ design approach that includes distinctive and functional enclosure designs, the Rockport Lynx features a new DAMSTIF3 enclosure formed from a single solid aluminum casting. The drivers of the Lynx are copied from the Lyra. The Lynx features a custom ten-inch carbon fiber sandwich cone woofer, a six-inch carbon fiber sandwich cone midrange, and a one-inch waveguide-loaded beryllium tweeter.

The Lynx’s driver array is designed to deliver an authoritative first octave bass response with abundant reserve and speed, a transparent midrange, bringing out densely saturated tonal color and texture, with a crystalline pure, dynamically realistic high-frequency register. the designers about the Lynx.

The Lynx was on display at High End Munich, along with an example of the one-piece raw aluminum casting used to make the case. Price and delivery information have yet to be announced.
