Additional information & features

The ultimate in luxury listening experiences

Enjoy the smooth Lowther sound with our DX Series. With maximum retention of sound information, the DX Series offers the full listening experience for audio-perfectionists.

Welcome to a new type of listening.

State of the art rare earth magnet technology

We’ve harnessed the latest in rare earth magnet technology to bring whole sound reproduction into the DX Series. 

Here at Lowther, we’ve become known for our large magnet assemblies. They’re exceptional, but we knew that we could do one step better. 

The magnets in the DX Series are the lightest and most compact on the market, yet they’re also some of the most powerful. They offer a wider range of sound and can reach diaphragm acceleration rates far beyond those accessible to conventional magnet systems.

The DX Series is for when only perfection will do.

Luxurious listening with the coil control system

This state of the art magnet technology is combined with our coil control system, to increase the speed of the speaker cones whilst reducing any oscillation in sound frequencies to an absolute minimum.

The result? A perfect listening experience.

Inner cone isolation for flawless audio

Both the DX Series and the EX Series have the inner speaker cone isolated from the outer, and we’ve also added a reverse roll to the rim of their inner cones. So, rather than the two cones working in unison at certain frequencies, you can now enjoy one smooth sound.

Far more detail is captured and reproduced, so that live listening experience doesn’t feel quite so far away. With complete diaphragm control, our speaker drivers offer the latest in listening experience.

Audio perfection for audio perfectionists

If you’re looking for pure audio, near-perfect sound reproduction and the ultimate in listening experiences - you’ll find it in the DX Series.
