Equipped with a precision-tuned high performance 2.0 audio design comprising proprietary driver/amp pairings, integrated Dolby Digital processing and superior Bluetooth aptX™ wire-free streaming, the super-slender ASB-10 will generate big, immersive audio dynamics from TV, games, discs and smartphones to become the audio hub for every home.
With a compact 90 x 94mm cross section and at just under a metre in length, the discreetly proportioned ASB-10 complements the look of flat screens from wall or table-top positions.
Its slim moulded polymer cabinet with black grille cloth and stylish brushed aluminium end trims houses an array of four Monitor Audio three-inch C-CAM bass drivers (assisted by a brace of passive bass radiators), and twin 25mm Gold Dome C-CAM tweeters. The ASB-10’s proprietary drive-unit configuration is powered by as many as four integral DSP-trimmed amplifiers, individually calibrated by Monitor Audio engineers for optimum audio control and response. The system is a size-defying success, injecting music and film sound with greater scale, detail and rhythmic mid-bass definition.
In most circumstances the ASB-10 will deliver ample levels of bass, but for low frequency enthusiasts Monitor Audio has developed the optional WS-10 active sub-woofer, purpose-built to add big bass dynamics to the ASB-10 system and all space-efficient set-ups. Complete with three-position EQ and a high-quality digital wireless link to the ASB-10, the WS-10 is a compact and versatile design, comprising an eight-inch C-CAM driver powered by a 120W amplifier, generously provisioned with individual volume and phase controls, and a standard array of wired LFE and 12V inputs for integration with an AVR in alternative system applications. For ever greater system design versatility, the WS-10 can connect wire-free to other systems via Monitor Audio’s new WT-1 transmitter module.
