Powered Wireless Bookshelf Loudspeakers: Each Dynaudio Xeo 2 powered wireless speaker features a 1.1" precision-coated silk soft-dome tweeter and
one 5.5" magnesium silicate polymer (MSP) mid-woofer powered by a 130 watt
digital amplifier for true high-end sound with great dynamic range, expansive
soundstage, exceptional accuracy, and a natural tonal balance. The Dynaudio Xeo
2 provides Bluetooth, analog, and digital connectivity. Each speaker will
need to be plugged into an AC outlet. However, there is no need for a physical
connection between the speakers, because one powered speaker streams to the
other powered speaker wirelessly.
Precision-Coated Soft-Dome Tweeter: Dynaudio has relied on a
silk soft-dome tweeter for recreating high frequencies since the company was
founded, continuously improving and perfecting the soft-dome principle over the
years. Dynaudio tweeter designs require a time consuming, labor-intensive
manufacturing process where the fine fabric diaphragm is shaped into a dome and
is then treated with a specially formulated coating. As a further refinement,
the tweeter's aluminum voice-coil is suspended in a magnetic oil, which
increases power handling while also improving the dome's excursion. The result
is the celebrated Dynaudio tweeter, featuring a balanced and natural frequency
- Damping Chamber: The tweeter also includes a special
damping chamber integrated into the rear of the construction, deadening any
back-wave energy through an acoustic absorber. The advantages include high
power handling and unimpeded excursion of the soft-dome dome tweeter.
- Ferrofluid Magnet: The voice coil is positioned within
the magnetic field of the tweeter magnet. When the loudspeaker reproduces
sound, the voice coil, powered by the amplifier current, moves at a speed of
up to 25,000 waves per second. To achieve a uniform movement, a magnetic
fluid called ferrofluid is used around the voice coil. Ferrofluid works like
a subtle shock absorber and eliminates excess energy. Due to the relatively
high current and extremely fast movements, the voice coil is under constant
thermal stress. The ferrofluid dissipates this heat, while also increasing
power handling capabilities. The frequency range of the tweeter can thus be
expanded while the frequency response remains smooth and linear, delivering
the highest resolution and most neutral sound reproduction.
Note: The surround of the tweeter is inversed to improve
dispersion. This leaves nowhere for the lead wires to go behind the tweeter,
so the lead wires are positioned above the surround.
Magnesium Silicate Polymer (MSP) Woofer: For bass and
midrange drivers, Dynaudio uses a proprietary composite of magnesium silicate
polymer (MSP), a material that combines low mass, high rigidity, and ideal
internal damping properties. This exclusive driver membrane is an immediately
visible and characteristic feature of Dynaudio loudspeakers. Formed in a special
manufacturing process, this membrane is a unique design with the distinctive,
geometrically optimized form of the cone further enabling smooth sound
- Aluminum Voice Coils: A distinct and major Dynaudio
innovation is the use of pure aluminum wire for voice coils. In comparison
to the more commonly used and much heavier copper alternative, aluminum
allows for more windings and extraordinarily large diameter coils that
remain extremely light. By using aluminum instead of copper for a bass
driver, it is possible to effectively double the coil's diameter without
increasing its mass. Due to the thermal properties of aluminum, cooling of
the voice coil is dramatically improved as well. In combination with the
equally light voice coil former and powerful magnet materials used in
Dynaudio designs, cone excursion is much more controlled and the driver
follows the music signal from the amplifier with a remarkable sense of
dynamics and accuracy.
- Die-Cast Aluminum Basket: The Dynaudio MSP woofer
utilizes a low-resonance, highly warp-resistant basket made of die-cast
aluminum. Due to the stiffness of this non-magnetic material, the basket can
be designed with aerodynamically formed ribs to reduce air compression
behind the moving membrane. Another advantage is its long-term resistance
against thermal, mechanical or other external influences.
Twin Bi-Amplified Digital Amplifiers:
The Dynaudio Xeo 2 powered wireless speaker system utilizes twin 65 watt amplifiers
inside of each speaker for a total
system power of 260 watts. Each speaker's tweeter and woofer has its own 65 watt
digital amplifier that has been specifically matched, individually tuned, and
precisely optimized to power that particular driver. This means you don't need to concern
yourself with matching other components to the speakers, because Dynaudio has
done all the work for you. Because the amps and drivers are so close together,
there's less internal wiring. Less internal wiring means less possibility of
interference. It also means the signal can stay in digital form for longer -
only being converted to analog at the last possible moment - before it's output
as physical sound. The result is clearer, cleaner audio at any listening level.
Advanced DSP (Digital Signal Processing):
Advanced DSP (digital signal
processing) filters and adaptive bass technology tailor the sound of the Xeo 2
speakers to your room and application. You can select between 3 DSP modes -
Neutral (free-standing placement), Wall (placed near a wall), or Corner (placed
in a corner). You can also select which speaker is Left or Right.
Rigid Bass Reflex Enclosure:
The Dynaudio Xeo 2 powered wireless
speaker system utilizes a bass reflex design with a rear-firing port on the back
of each speaker for greater efficiency and bigger bass response. The 1.1" tweeter and
5.5" woofer sit in a solid aluminum
baffle and ultra-stable composite housing designed to minimize unwanted
interference. Additional internal damping, strengthening, and bracing in
critical sections of the cabinet substantially reduce unwanted resonance. The
included grilles have been designed so they do not influence the sound
dispersion of the speakers. They are attached to the speaker cabinets with
magnets and may be removed if needed.
Bluetooth Audio Streaming:
The Dynaudio Xeo 2 features built-in
Bluetooth 4.1 with support for wireless audio streaming (A2DP) and control
(AVRCP). You'll be able to wirelessly stream stored music, music apps, and other
audio content from your Bluetooth source device (such as your smartphone,
tablet, or computer) to the Xeo 2 speaker system. You'll also be able control
basic playback functions (such as Play/Pause, Previous/Next Track, & Volume)
from the included IR remote. You can pair multiple Bluetooth source devices to
the Xeo 2 system, but only one device can be connected and played back at a
