LAS VEGAS, Jan. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Dynaudio, the Danish based high end loudspeaker specialist, is proud to introduce the new Xeo loudspeakers, the world’s first true high end wireless loudspeaker system at the 2012 International CES in Las Vegas. Comprised of two models, the compact Xeo 3 bookshelf monitor and the slim Xeo 5 floor stander, the Xeo models are wireless, remote controlled active loudspeakers offering the convenience of wireless operation in a fully active loudspeaker concept with the sound quality that Dynaudio has become renowned for. Both models utilize high performance Dynaudio drive units powered by integrated digital amplifiers featuring digital sound processing.
Xeo offers wireless audio with Dynaudio sound quality
The Xeo has been designed to deliver true high end sound quality, while the wireless active loudspeaker concept helps to achieve an incredibly high level of value in that there is no additional cost of amplification or cabling. The tweeters are 27 mm soft dome designs with Dynaudio’s precision coating, while the long-throw mid/woofers are 14.5 cm drivers featuring Dynaudio’s proprietary MSP (Magnesium Silicate Polymer) cones. The Xeo sonic performance is open, detailed, accurate and dynamic with perfect timing.
According to Dynaudio founder and CEO Wilfried Ehrenholz, “Xeo is Dynaudio’s answer to an ever changing marketplace. This new product range exists as there has been a drastic shift in how customers are listening to music. Of course, audiophiles will always be driven by performance and absolute sound quality, but there are also customers who may not even know the audiophile market exists but are interested in quality product design, innovative technology, and better convenience in audio products.”
“With the Xeo, Dynaudio aims to bring the high performance sound that the audiophile market requires in line with today’s demands of a wider audience who is interested in intelligent designs, the latest technologies and a simple and convenient platform to listen to music in higher sound quality. First and foremost, Xeo is wireless audio. But it is wireless high end, which means Xeo is also a true Dynaudio.”
