 SoundStage! Equipment Review - Amphion argon2 Loudspeakers (3/2002)
Amphion is based in Finland, and when I first saw their speakers at the High End show in Germany, I was intrigued by the flaring front baffle -- it was an indicator that there was more to the argon2 than met my eye.
According to Amphion, one of their goals is to get the crossover out of what they consider a critical range of human hearing: 2kHz to 5kHz.
Amphion rates the argon2, which is magnetically shielded, as having a sensitivity of 85dB and a nominal impedance of 8 ohms with a minimum dip to 7 ohms.

Amphion's philosophy is to keep things as simple as possible in the electrical domain by solving most problems through its speakers' acoustical design.
Amphion claims that the speakers' free-field response (what you get in an anechoic chamber) and their energy response (what you get in a genuine listening room) are "surprisingly similar, sometimes even almost identical." That's not so modest a claim as all those modifiers might make it seem.

 Acoustics Engineering - Amphion
The Amphion is a compact power amplifier, intended for acoustical measurements in the field or laboratory.
