Self-Powered Desktop Speakers: The Definitive Technology Incline
self-powered loudspeakers will transform the space around your desktop computer
into a rich listening environment. The Incline self-powered speakers have
been optimized for use on desktops, shelves, and credenzas using a unique form
factor that enhances sound quality while complementing the appearance of today's
desktop monitors and laptop computers. Its built-in amplifiers, digital signal
processing, and bipolar speaker configuration will take your desktop audio to a
new performance level.
Bipolar Speaker Design: The Incline self-powered loudspeaker's bipolar
configuration radiates sound in an omni-directional pattern. Front facing
drivers include a 0.75" silk dome tweeter and one 4" polymer cone mid/woofer
that is pressure-coupled to a 4" planar bass radiator. A rear facing
2" full-range driver creates a spacious soundscape far beyond the
confines of your desktop. Your listening experience is more life-like, more
involving for music and movies.
Bi-Amplified Configuration + DSP: Four 20-watt class HD amplifiers (each speaker is
bi-amplified) power the system for effortless high volume, low distortion
clarity. The Incline powered speakers employ a 56-bit DSP (digital signal
processor) to enhance the input audio signal for better sound quality
9.5-Degree Angle: Desktop
speakers often sound dull, lifeless and flat. The Incline's 9.5-degree angle
literally points the speaker toward your ears, aiding directivity and making it
possible for you to hear the full bandwidth. Vocals are more intelligible and
music and movie soundtracks sound utterly lifelike.
Polystone Cabinet & Aluminum Base: The Incline powered
speakers include a support-base made from a solid slab of machined aluminum to
provide stability. The enclosure is fabricated with Definitive's trademark
Polystone mineral-filled polymer, and wrapped in acoustically transparent grille
USB (type-B) Port w/ DAC: The Definitive Technology Incline
self-powered loudspeaker is fitted with a USB (type-B) port to connect your
Mac computer or Windows PC. The Incline's USB port bypasses the inferior
internal DAC in your computer and uses its own high-quality TI PCM 2704 DAC DAC
(24-bit/48kHz) to provide
exceptional sound reproduction that is detailed, natural, and warm. The USB port
is located on the back panel of the Right speaker. Playback of up to
24-bit/48kHz, 2ch music files is supported.
Analog + Digital Inputs: The Incline powered speaker is
equipped with an analog (3.5mm) and digital (optical) input. The 3.5mm analog
input allows you to connect any portable audio device with a headphone or audio
output. The optical (toslink) digital input lets you connect your TV, Blu-ray
player or Sat/Cable box. The optical digital input supports PCM audio signals
only (not Dolby Digital/DTS). The analog & digital inputs are hidden behind a
cover plate on the rear panel of the Right speaker. Playback of up to
24-bit/48kHz music files is supported through the digital input. Any music file
can be played back via analog input.
Tether Cable: A 6' tether cable is supplied which connects left &
right power speaker together. The cable transfers audio and power from the Right
speaker to the left speaker.
Sub Output: For higher output and more bass, you can add an
optional external powered subwoofer to the Incline via its rear-panel Sub Out
RCA jack. The sub output is located on the back panel of the Right speaker (there is
a cover plate that will need to be removed).
Power/Volume Controls: The Right speaker features Volume Up/Down and
Power On/Off controls on its side-panel.
External AC Power Supply: The Definitive Technology Incline
self-powered loudspeakers operate off of standard household current using the
supplied external AC power supply and AC power cord. The AC power supply plugs
into the back of the Right speaker.
