British premium audio brand Ferguson Hill has unveiled its latest offering in the world of high-end audio, the Ferguson Hill Jetstream Loudspeaker System. This new system, an evolution of the iconic FH001, continues to captivate audiophiles with its transparent horn speaker design but introduces several enhancements for improved performance.

Ferguson Hill has made a name for itself in the audio industry by pushing the boundaries of design and sound quality. The Jetstream Loudspeaker System is no exception, boasting not only an impressive visual aesthetic but also a promise of extraordinary audio performance.

Founder and designer Tim Hill expressed his dedication to creating the "ultimate sound system" with the Jetstream. "I have incorporated all the changes I have wanted to do since the launch of the FH001 twenty years ago," Hill said. 

The system comprises a pair of Jetstream Horn Loudspeakers, a pair of Jetstream Bass Speakers, and a Jetstream Bass Amplifier, each meticulously reworked to elevate the listening experience.

The centerpiece of the Jetstream system is the Jetstream Horn Loudspeaker, featuring bespoke drive units and a Neodymium motor. The speaker's design includes metal ring supports and an acrylic horn that facilitates a smooth and stable soundwave, reducing unwanted vibrations. The unique horn shape allows sound waves to propagate freely, ensuring minimal distortion and maximum clarity. These striking speakers weigh a substantial 32kg each.

To provide the necessary low-end depth, the Jetstream system includes two 600mm transparent acrylic spheres housing 300mm neodymium-powered drive units, known as the Jetstream Bass Speakers.

These speakers work in conjunction with the Jetstream Bass Amplifier, a Class D amplifier that delivers 200 watts per channel for a total of 400 watts. The amplifier features an aluminum block construction and a low-pass filter that complements the bass speakers' output, resulting in a cohesive and high-performance audio system.
