Gradient Intro was designed for the modern home with a small to medium sized listening room. The Intro produced a well balanced sound in an environment where many other loudspeakers tended to have an over-emphasized, boomy bass. It performed especially well in modern city apartments. The Intro utilized the same coaxial driver that was used in for example famous flagship model Revolution.
A special feature in the loudspeaker's structure was the Helmholtz resonator, with which the half-wave resonance generated in the speaker cabinet could be eliminated.
