Sierra-1 Loudspeaker Pair

Don’t let the good looks of the Sierra-1 fool you, this loudspeaker was designed from the ground up to deliver exceptional performance. Every component of the Sierra is fully optimized for a single purpose, clean and accurate sound reproduction.  From the vertically laminated solid bamboo cabinet designed to reduce both resonance and energy-loss, to the advanced crossover optimized for phase and off-axis response accuracy, this loudspeaker is destined to become the reference by which all other bookshelf monitors are judged, regardless of price.

Hand assembled, tested and packaged in the USA, we are so confident of the component and build quality of the Sierra-1 that we are backing it by a comprehensive 7 year parts & labor warranty.  Left / right pairs are matched by hand to within ± 1dB and we are including a printout of the actual production line response measurements of each speaker.  We dare say it, but you simply can not find this type of quality control, care and pride from products that are fully assembled and tested in overseas manufacturing facilities.

At Ascend, it is all about performance and we have found a unique way to offer exceptional natural beauty that also offers documented performance improvements.  Now you can have that renowned Ascend performance AND good looks, all in a product that represents the very best of what we have to offer while joining the growing trend towards environmental responsibility, this is the world's most affordable bamboo loudspeaker.

We thank you for your interest!
