Lansche plasma tweeter replacement every 5000 hours.

Who would purchase a speaker with a tweeter life span of 5000 hours? I was seriously thinking of picking up a pr used here on audiogon till I heard you have to purchase a new tweeter for $2000-2500 after 5000 hours. That’s ridiculous to say the least. Who knows if they will even be around in the next 5-10 years.

I have to say, this is a disappointment. Despite the cool physics, I've not been impressed that they were audibly so much better than other world class devices.


I have not heard them, but with how 2020 went down, I put a lot more hours on my speakers than the year before. I might be needing a second set of new tweeters very soon. So for the maintenance alone I would steer clear.
Never heard one
i bet it sounds great
2000 hours is roughly 40 hours a week for 2 1/2 years....  that a lot of listening...

plasma tweeter replacement every 5000 hours.
It’s only the Tungsten electrode rod that probably needs replacing, as that’s how long they last. Just like on my Magnat MP-02 Plasma’s.
I bought the right diameter rods on ebay got a machine shop to cut them to length and dome shape the end.

b_limo, check your math.  40 hours a week for 2 1/2 years works out to 5200 hours, or replacement time for the tweeter.  I agree that 5,000 hours is a lot of listening.

Oops, meant to say 5000.  Transposed the $2000 repair bill.  Dyslexic?
