The Avatar OBX-R2 is a natural evolution of the standard Avatar. There are many differences and refinements – the most obvious being the use of external crossovers for optimum performance (OBX variant) and the employment of the exceptional Scanspeak Revelator high frequency unit.
Such refinement means the OBX-R2 is stable, organised and unfatiguing. The speaker presents music in a manner which has consistent, believable proportions and maintains natural dynamic relationships. Music that you had previously regarded as indifferently performed or poorly recorded can often become highly accessible, convincing and engaging. Music you have always loved can find fresh expression and meaning.
The IBX variants house the crossover internally with a small loss of ultimate performance levels but of course with a smaller total footprint and lower cable costs.
