Danish loudspeaker legend Dynaudio has rebooted its Xeo active wireless Hi-Fi speaker family. The new Xeo 20 and Xeo 30 speakers replace the Xeo 4 and 6 and join the multi-award-winning Xeo 2 in the company’s range.
As well as getting a new look, the Xeo 20 and Xeo 30 now have updated tunings for even better performance, plus direct inputs for analogue and digital sources, upgraded DSP (digital signal processing) capabilities, full 24-bit/96kHz hi-res support and built-in high-quality aptX Bluetooth.
Priced from £1999 per pair, the range’s new firmware comes with new tunings, derived from Dynaudio’s celebrated LYD 5 professional studio monitors. The upgrade includes improved compressor and limiter algorithms and an updated crossover design with a larger overlap between drivers to give improved bass and improved off-axis performance. The DSP engine has also been given more processing power (as well as being optimised) to enhance its speaker-position compensation for corner, wall and free- space placements.
The whole Xeo range now gets direct Toslink (digital optical), analogue RCA and analogue stereo minijack inputs on each master speaker. The signal is transmitted to the slave speaker in high-resolution 24-bit/96kHz form. There’s also Bluetooth on board for high-quality aptX wireless streaming without the need for an external Connect box.
Both models are available in Black Satin and White Satin finishes.
