About The Richter Wizard Speakers
The Richter Wizard Series 6 is the latest floorstanding speaker from Australia's most successful speaker brand. It is a sophisticated sounding speaker that easily handles all sorts of music and has great dynamic abilities to go with its overall clarity. It also looks wonderfully refined with a carefully considered and subtle design that will work well in modern and classic interiors alike.
Our General Manager, Mark Hales, started with Audio Trends at about the same time the Richter Wizards were first lighting up the audio sky here in Melbourne. That was in 1989 and now 30 years later (September 2019), we are proud to bring you the latest Wizard Series 6 model.
Richter’s Wizard S6 has big shoes to fill as the Wizard, in all its iterations, is the biggest selling Australian Loudspeaker of all time, not to mention it receiving the coveted 2017 Award “Ultimate Product of the Last 30 years”. So Richter has risen to the challenge and really moved the game forward with this new Wizard S6 and made it all about the music – the sheer magic of your favourite listening delivered in astounding stereo high fidelity. These improved levels of musicality are thanks to some very thorough design overhauls from the Series V Wizard.
A brand new, much improved cabinet with its beautiful rounded trapezoid shape is a large part of the upgrade but it’s the newly developed drivers that are the real stars of the show. New 6 ½” lightweight but extremely stiff coated paper Midrange and Bass drivers were specifically developed for the Series 6 Range and they are probably the best drive units used in any speaker up to twice the Wizard’s very reasonable price. And they combine beautifully with the new ultra-low distortion soft dome Tweeter which has a clear and effortlessly airy sound that stretches all the way to an amazing 30kHz!
The great attention paid in the development of these new propriety drivers allowed chief designer, Dr Martin Gosnell, the opportunity to create magic with a brand new crossover design using high quality acoustic polypropylene caps, air cored and ferrite core inductors as well as a huge laminated core inductor feeding the bass on the new Wizard S6.
The improved crossover not only let’s all the drivers sing with one voice but also results in the Series 6 delivering much improved efficiency making them easier to drive even when powered by more modest amplifiers or digital streaming solutions like the popular Sonos Amp. Staying true to the comment of Ralph Waters, the brands founder ‘I’m not in the audiophile industry, I’m in the entertainment industry,’ Series 6 has been designed to be an exciting engaging entertainment experience to make you want to start digging through that record and CD collection or start scrolling through your favourite music streaming service.
The floorstanding Wizard S6 also comes standard with the new Series 6 Speaker Stabilisers designed to greatly improve stability (an issue in the home for many tall, narrow speaker designs) as well as to help improve the overall acoustic performance of the speakers. In a great piece of fresh thinking, the Series 6 Stabilisers will also be available separately (for $249pr) as an after-market upgrade for previous Richter MKV floorstanding speakers and these versatile stabilisers can also be used with a wide range of other floorstanding speaker brands with M6 threaded lugs spaced between 130-170mm wide – such as the B&W floorstanding speakers we sell. Genius.
Richter Wizards In The News
“On this performance, it seems highly likely that the Richter Wizard will continue to wear the crown of being the best-selling Australian loudspeaker. This latest S6 version takes a proven award-winning design to its highest level yet in terms of sound quality, visual appearance, cabinet stability and amplifier-friendliness. It’s a magic combination.” Sound and Image Magazine
It’s another milestone from Richter, the only brand to win 26 industry and government awards, twice-named ‘Australian Manufacturer of the Year.’ “The brand has developed a solid reputation, especially for subwoofers … its Wizard model is the biggest-selling Australian speaker in history” – Rod Easdown - The Sydney Morning Herald
Our Take On The Wizard Speakers
The Richter design team is headed up by Dr. Martin Gosnell BE (Hons) PhD who has worked with Richter since approx. 2000. Together with the experience of audiophile owner Brian Rodgers, Richter has really set a new benchmark in Australian speaker design. You could pay a whole lot more for an international brand name and get not only an inferior product, but one that doesn't sound anywhere near the Richter Series 6. The Wizards will also please your eyes with their classic yet contemporary looks – perfect for your hi-fi stereo requirements, without breaking the bank. Please do not underestimate Richter speakers! They are world-class or better. But, do yourself a favour - compare and listen!
