Its close to the design of the S400 and then not really. It looks like it with the waveguide, it’s just on top now (we can do time alignment in the DSP here). The cabinet is a bit deeper (4 centimeters). The big change is that we here use closed cabinets. We have one woofer in the front, and one in the back over the active system. Each woofer is in its own cabinet inside so we can time aligned the back woofer. They don’t have much space to work with so we need a ton of power for them. Here we have 3 x 150 w of some brand new class d chips from Texas Instruments and a powerful power supply to support them. We have a high quality DSP and the CS4398 DAC in each speaker as well. They can be connected via WISA to our hub and remote. You can use any WISA receiver for that matter so the system is very flexible. You can also simply connect them via XLR to your own preamp and run them analog. But using our hub, you will also have the ability to use our Room correction, witch is a topic by it self. But in short, it’s made directly to handle the issues in the bass caused by the room (sub 250hz) and it touches nothing else! I really can’t emphasize enough how fantastic this actually works, and it’s very easy to setup as well and measure your room with the mic.
S700A floorstander : All the same jazz, just with 4 x 150 w amps and a 3.5 way design instead of an 2.5 way or 3 way depending on the configuration of the S410A. This will have waveguide, 6" midrange, 2 x 6" woofers in front (17-200hz) and on the back 2 x 6" woofers (17-100hz). Still pretty elegant and compact design, but with a ton of power! These has been under development for almost 3 years now. We have spend so much time on perfecting them! We are sharing this active platform with other companies, but we have specified the amps and dacs in them. We have just upgraded the amps and dacs compared to these. But the Hub and features are basically the same. To carry development cost for something like this alone is completely out the picture.
We have made our own high quality alu remote for the system. It’s a very nice remote with led indication on volume and what channel is selected. The hub is a small black box where you would connect everything to. of inputs it has 1 x analog 3 x optics 1 x coax 1 x USB 1 x Mini Jack 1 x HDMI. To this it has built in Chromecast, Airplay, Spotify connect and Bluetooth. So its a complete system.
S410A would be 3500 euro including VAT, TAX import fees and worldwide shipping.
