This unit was just pulled from my home system. It is currently configured for use with the C5100 five channel amp and I have the compatible one listed with Chakra cards already installed. I am also including the factory jumpers incase you would prefer to use them with one channel amp configuration. I have used the speaker in both configurations and found it significantly better that my previous JBL, Polk and Klipsch centers in single amp only. In 5 channel it simply blows them away. It is clean, articulate and full.
I do want to point out that the cabinet is not perfect with some modest damage to the under side of the speaker cabinet as well as to the grille. The speaker functions perfectly.
The Akurate range consists of four distinct acoustically matched loudspeakers
that can be simply configured for high performance stereo and multi-channel
music or home theatre applications.
The Akurate range has been designed to
do full justice to the highest definition sound and vision formats,
such as Studio Master downloads and Super Audio CD.
The full-range models, the 242, 225 and
212 loudspeakers, feature Linn’s 3K Driver Array technology that
creates a consistent single point sound source and improves high frequency
response. All components used in the 3K Driver Array are tolerance matched
to ensure sonic consistency throughout. Sandwich cone 6 1/2 inch bass
drive units deliver pure musical bass and the highly braced internal
cabinet construction ensures the best possible performance from the
advanced drive unit design.
The Akurate 226 bass reinforcement loudspeaker
features servo-controlled Chakra amplification and digitally controlled
signal processing for flexible configuration options. The 10 inch long-excursion
drive unit is constantly monitored and regulated to maintain accurate
and musical bass in any listening environment.
High grade real wood veneers are used
through and are available in standard (American Cherry, Black Ash, Maple,
Rosenut) or special high gloss finishes. Bespoke finishes can also be
crafted to perfectly complement any living space.
