SourcePoint 10: First Speakers from MoFi

With the two-way standmount speaker "SourcePoint 10" – developed by Andrew Jones –, the phono experts from MoFi present their first own loudspeaker.

An important centerpiece of the new MoFi SourcePoint 10 is said to be the coaxial driver realized with proprietary technologies. Although Andrew Jones is well-known for his previous developments (for TAD, for example), he has chosen a deliberate departure from his older designs wehen developing the SourcePoint 10. Instead of a traditional three-way design with a small coax driver, Jones has for the first time implemented a two-way system with a cone over 25cm in size and an independent magnet drive for MoFi's first loudspeaker.

For the woofer material, Jones and the MoFi development team opted for a particularly lightweight paper cone, while the tweeter, mounted in the middle of the woofer's cone, is a 1.25-inch soft dome. Due to its wide surround and powerful voice coil, it is said to be able to play at the important transition point above 1600 Hz. The wide surround is also said to improve the tweeter's frequency response, while the woofer's suspended waveguide is said to increase its efficiency in the lower frequencies.

The SourcePoint 10 is driven by a dual magnet system that MoFi calls "Twin-Drive". The coupling of the high-flux neodymium magnets is said to create an effective composite effect. The Twin-Drive magnetic structure was also designed with the goal that it should produce a completely symmetrical magnetic field. Thus – according to MoFi – the flux modulations could be optimized in terms of extremely low intermodulation distortion (IMD).

The shape of the real wood veneer cabinet with its about five centimeters thick baffle was created by MoFi according to acoustic criteria. The faceted front therefore protrudes noticeably from the cabinet. In this way, diffraction effects that color the sound are said to be largely avoided. The internally braced cabinet is made of 2.5 cm thick MDF panels and has a volume of 50 liters. Thanks to its size, the SourcePoint 10 is supposed to be able to provide authentic bass reproduction down to 42 hertz.

The manufacturer states 91 dB efficiency, 8 ohm speaker impedance, and an absolute impedance minimum of 6.4 ohms. That is supposed to further promise a speaker that can also harmonize with lower-powered amplifiers.

The MoFi SourcePoint 10 is available immediately in Germany at an MSRP of 5,000 euros per pair.
