The Dragon Legacy is the culmination of more than 25 years of audiophile history of PEAK consult. Driven by a deep love of music and a true passion for both craftsmanship and technical perfection, a string of quite unique loudspeakers for real enthusiasts was born.
The Dragon Legacy Speakers
The all-new Dragon Legacy is the culmination of this company’s long history and love for audio! The cabinet is redesigned from the ground up and has an almost monumental appeal. Also all drivers are new developments, especially for this project. The crossover is constructed from the very finest components currently manufacturable and eventually carefully selected in terms of measurement, technology and sound.
PEAK is now cooperating with Fink Audio-Consulting in Essen. Wilfried Ehrenholz, PEAK co-owner and Karl-Heinz Fink. They have more than 80 years of development experience in high-end loudspeaker technology between them. This is undoubtedly one of the reasons the Dragon Legacy is truly a unique audiophile experience.

The Peak Legacy loudspeakers
The total weight of the Dragon Legacy loudspeaker is 225 kg (each). The sidewalls consist of 4 layers of high-damping materials with a thickness of 46 mm. The connection of the five compartment segments is 82 mm thick. Furthermore, there is a special damped X-over compartment filled with sand which keeps all possible microphonic effects from the system. It provides a constant temperature for all components, even at the highest levels.
The top layer of the side walls consists of 14mm solid walnut (depending on the version). Six elegant but very strong adjustable feet mounted on massive steel bars grant the perfect grounding of the speaker. As a result, it makes the Dragon Legacy behave much like a point source because floor and ceiling reflections are minimized. Altogether, when listening to small ensembles and quiet passages, the Legacy appears like a small super high-end bookshelf loudspeaker. However, with Fortissimo, a real “thunderstorm” comes upon you!
Inside the Dragon Legacy speakers
By carefully tuning the bass, midrange and tweeter, in combination with the complex crossover, the results is a breathtakingly realistic spatiality and extremely precise representation of even the smallest details. The bass part is equipped with two 28cm drivers. These feature 75mm voice coils on Titanium formers with a particularly long linear excursion. The membrane consists of a sandwich composition of impregnated paper and foam.
The dragon Legacy loudspeaker is equipped with a symmetrical drive magnet system in order to stabilize the impedance over excursion for very low harmonic distortion and low Intermodulation. In addition, the bass reflex system with 4th order alignment is tuned with a flat roll-off, so the frequency response is optimized for listening rooms, dealing with typical room gain at very low frequencies. The ports use flow resistor-damped ventilation holes to avoid unwanted output in the critical frequency range of human voices.
Midranges & crossover
Two 15 cm midranges with a low hysteresis rubber surround and a symmetrical magnet drive using copper rings drive provide any dynamic level with a totally smooth and musical balance. Frequency and phase response is well controlled with the bass drivers and the tweeter. The new tweeter with a waveguide shows all musical details like a magnifying glass but with a perfect natural tonality. The carefully impregnated soft dome has a large roll surround and a symmetric magnet system which ensures the uncompressed reproduction of all transient levels. Consequently, all crossover components are selected from the best of the best and finally chosen through listening sessions.
The legacy of a dragon
As a matter of fact, it is the technical competence and know-how of the development team that ensures finding the perfect phase and transient response as well as the tonal balance based on the correct interaction of crossover and drivers. All facts, arguments and specs will never be good enough to describe the Dragon Legacy. Without a doubt, only the human listening experience will show the potential of this outstanding speaker. Just like its brother the Dragon Legend, our Dragon Legacy opens a new window to the world of music! PEAK, House of the Dragon. A Legacy of Musicality.
