Enjoy a unique opportunity to own part of the system compiled by former Stereo Times contributing reviewer, Norm Luttbeg. Norm recently relocated and having downsized in the process finds that he no longer has room for such a robust system. To watch and listen to the system in action, check out this short clip from High Fidelity Cables capturing Norm’s full system in action.

The Arcadia is a balanced bi-polar configuration and is unique in a number of ways. Most conventional speakers have good depth of image in the center of the soundstage, but much less so at the sides. The Arcadia’s bi-polar design dramatically improves the soundstage’s depth impression at the sides, making the soundstage more complete and realistic. The innovative Megalith cabinet design is elegantly slim with a series of thin raised side panels that emphasize its graceful vertical lines, enabling it to also fit comfortably in normal living environments. The BMC Arcadia Speakers retailed for over $36,000 and compete favorably with speakers twice the price.
Drivers by B.M.C. Audio
Two 11-inch side-firing honeycomb-Kevlar woofers, each woofer is driven by 6 magnets in a ring configuration for an exceptionally long linear excursion range. Four 5" honeycomb-Kevlar midrange drivers in a bi-polar configuration. The honeycomb-Kevlar cones are light, stiff, free of resonance and coloration. Two Air-Motion ribbon tweeter with a massive motor and light diaphragm for superb acceleration and high sound pressure capability, in a bi-polar configuration as well.
The crossover, uniquely, is external, and weighs 37.5 lbs. Being external frees it from internal sound pressures, and makes it easily upgradable with future solutions that improve the sound even further. Also unconventional, B.M.C. Audio custom crafted all the Arcadia’s key elements, including its large air inductors, inductance-free polypropylene capacitors, unique polystyrene “by-passers”, and metal-film resistor arrays, instead of the usual MOX or wire resistors, for superior precision and sound quality.
