New MoFi Electronics SourcePoint 8 Speakers by Andrew Jones.

MoFi Electronics is set to launch its latest loudspeaker model, the SourcePoint 8, at the upcoming AXPONA event in Schaumburg, IL, USA from April 14-16. This bookshelf speaker, created by Chief Speaker Designer Andrew Jones, offers the same exceptional sound quality as its larger sibling, the SourcePoint 10, but in a more compact package that can fit into most rooms.

Jones, who is known for his signature concentric driver designs, explains that the SourcePoint 8 was developed to provide music lovers with a smaller alternative without sacrificing audio performance. "We always had the intention of releasing a smaller SourcePoint, but our first priority was demonstrating just how good a large diameter 2-way concentric speaker could sound when we were not so much size constrained," he says.

One of the highlights of the SourcePoint 8 is its custom-made eight-inch concentric driver, which features MoFi's innovative Twin-Drive high-flux magnet structure. The paper pulp mix cone shape with its brand-new corrugated surround is optimized for resonant behavior and tweeter waveguide requirements. The 1.25-inch soft dome tweeter with large-diameter voice coil and wide surround extends both the low- and high-frequency response of the tweeter. Combined with the loading of the waveguide which increases its low-end efficiency allows the tweeter to work optimally down to the low 1.6kHz crossover frequency.

The SourcePoint 8's cabinet measures 18 x 11.4 x 13.2 inches (HWD) and is made of 3/4-inch-thick MDF panels for the sides, top, bottom, and back. The 27.9-pound speaker boasts a sculpted, multi-faceted 1.5-inch thick baffle that reduces diffraction and an 87dB sensitivity, with a low-frequency point of 47Hz and a true eight-ohm impedance with a minimum of 6.4 ohms. The interior is further strengthened by two braces, while the exterior comes in a real wood veneer of satin walnut, black ash, or a painted satin white.

Listeners can experience the SourcePoint 8 at AXPONA in Suite 334, where Jones and the MoFi Electronics team will be showcasing the speaker with electronics from HiFi Rose. SourcePoint 8 will be available for shipping in May at a price of $2,750 USD per pair or $2,999 per pair USD with matching stands. For more information, visit
