More MoFi SourcePoint loudspeakers
FULL PRESS RELEASE
MoFi Electronics is set to launch its latest loudspeaker model, the SourcePoint 8, at the upcoming AXPONA event in Schaumburg, IL, USA from April 14-16. This bookshelf speaker, created by Chief Speaker Designer Andrew Jones, offers the same exceptional sound quality as its larger sibling, the SourcePoint 10, but in a more compact package that can fit into most rooms.
Jones, who is known for his signature concentric driver designs, explains that the SourcePoint 8 was developed to provide music lovers with a smaller alternative without sacrificing audio performance. “We always had the intention of releasing a smaller SourcePoint, but our first priority was demonstrating just how good a large diameter 2-way concentric speaker could sound when we were not so much size constrained,” he says.
One of the highlights of the SourcePoint 8 is its custom-made eight-inch concentric driver, which features MoFi’s innovative Twin-Drive high-flux magnet structure. The paper pulp mix cone shape with its brand-new corrugated surround is optimized for resonant behavior and tweeter waveguide requirements. The 1.25-inch soft dome tweeter with large-diameter voice coil and wide surround extends both the low- and high-frequency response of the tweeter. Combined with the loading of the waveguide which increases its low-end efficiency allows the tweeter to work optimally down to the low 1.6kHz crossover frequency.
The SourcePoint 8’s cabinet measures 18 x 11.4 x 13.2 inches (HWD) and is made of 3/4-inch-thick MDF panels for the sides, top, bottom, and back. The 27.9-pound speaker boasts a sculpted, multi-faceted 1.5-inch thick baffle that reduces diffraction and an 87dB sensitivity, with a low-frequency point of 47Hz and a true eight-ohm impedance with a minimum of 6.4 ohms. The interior is further strengthened by two braces, while the exterior comes in a real wood veneer of satin walnut, black ash, or a painted satin white.
Listeners can experience the SourcePoint 8 at AXPONA in Suite 334, where Jones and the MoFi Electronics team will be showcasing the speaker with electronics from HiFi Rose. SourcePoint 8 will be available for shipping in May at a price of $2,750 USD per pair or $2,999 per pair USD with matching stands.
