Dragon Legend MkII
The Dragon Legends replaces the Dragon, which occupied the flagship position for more than ten years. Its design principle is a natural evolution of the Dragon in technology as well as in aesthetics. The Dragon Legend is made entirely in Denmark.
Standing tall in the room, the Dragon Legends have a commanding presence in size and in looks. Aesthetically, they are the epitome Northern European classic elegance, combining classic wood work combined with high gloss piano finish reminiscent of modern pianos. The timeless classical design of the Dragon Legends blends in nicely in any interior. Aesthetically, the Dragon Legend’s classic design will not fade over time.
Each speaker houses two 13” hybrid sandwich bass woofers, two 6” mid ranges, and a 1” silk dome tweeter in a MTM configuration (Bass - Mid - Tweeter - Mid - Bass). They are time aligned and designed to produce a wide dispersion pattern.
All drive units are built in Denmark by the most skilled craftsmen. They are all designed uniquely for the Dragon Legend mkII.
The multifaceted enclosure is handcrafted in our own facilities by Danish artisans in a 3" HDF sandwich material covered by 1" Selected solid hard wood chosen by authorised Danish Carpenters.
the Dragon Legends’ cabinets, which are made of 36mm HDF (High Density Fiberboard), but in areas where rigidity is called for, they are as thick as 70mm with multiple layers of HDF.
The Dragon Legend MkII has a modular build in 3 parts.
The crossovers for this speaker are handmade by Kristoffersen himself, using the absolute best capacitors, resistors, inductors and wiring. For the Serinity Line and the Dragon Legend MkII in particular, a vast amount of in-house build components are used. These are all shielded from all other components.
The crossover in this speaker is beyond anything else. The weight alone is xx kg. The crossover itself is not even that complex, but the sheer weight and extreme construction of every single component in the setup, just makes it unbelievable.
At PEAK, we cannot imagine anything worse than a signal path filled with brass, solder and other things that are cheap to build, but degrades the sound quality. We prefer not to take any short cuts, but do it the hard, expensive and superior way.
The Dragon Legend MkII is Bi-Wire design.
The feet are specially custom made in Denmark. They have better decoupling than spikes, but are easy on any floor type, as it is no spike. The special feet encapsulate a ball on which the entire weight of the speaker rests. Depending on the weight of the speaker the ball is made of different types of steel or either a ceramic material.
Sound wise these feet are much improved over the traditional spikes giver more powerful bass and clarity.
Review of the Dragon Legend MkII
By monoandstereo.com - 2017
"...the Dragon Legends have truly captivated my soul and they will likely not leave my audio room. I just have to start saving up, may be I’ll forgo my retirement savings. There will likely be no other speaker review coming from me for the next foreseeable future because frankly, I do not see myself falling in love with another pair of speakers within the high end audio horizon."
