EX Reference Series 3-Way Floorstanding Speakers (160W; Teak)
The audiophile experience.
The floor-standing S-3EX speaker benefits from the technical know-how and technologies that went into the creation of the world-famous TAD monitoring speakers. It’s designed and built to take you to the heart of the music, as if you were hearing a musician, band or orchestra live.
The EX Series is the result of a concerted global effort involving top Pioneer and TAD specialists working in Japan, France and the US. The Engineering Division in Tokyo, Speaker Design Centre in Paris and the Pioneer R&D facility in Los Angeles have pooled their expertise to produce a truly outstanding series of reference speakers.
The S-3EX, S-4EX and S-8EX speakers all feature an exclusive concentric driver with Ceramic Graphite tweeter and Magnesium medium, as well as dedicated aramid cone woofers. The cabinets, crafted from multiple layers of laminated MDF up to a generous 100 mm thick, guarantee absolute acoustic neutrality. They feature a baffle with a curved surface, the “Precision Curve”, which aligns the individual speaker cones in exactly the right positions to ensure that all sounds arrive at your ears at the same time.
Our EX speakers have been monitored, tested and optimised by AIR STUDIOS in London. Since 1969, when Beatles producer George Martin founded this temple of sound, AIR STUDIOS has become a recognised authority when it comes to fine-tuning high-end audio components. Their verdict about the EX series? A speaker range that can reproduce the sound of a professional studio, right in your living room.
The S-3EX is also available in high-gloss natural beech.
