I'm assuming I'd want a DAC between my Mac Mini and a pair of these speakers, correct?
How does a pair of these differ sonically (to a listener's ears) from a pair of two-way boxes? (assuming they're set up as computer speakers)
Dimensions, frequency range, etc. :thumb:
It's a DSP amp so there are different ways to connect depending on your source(s). The digital input is AES/EBU which many DACs may not support. There are converters though (if you wish to go digital all the way to the amp); in fact, I have one that will convert Toslink optical to AES/EBU. There are also apps for using a mobile device as a remote; however, since this is a network-style amp in order to use them on wi-fi you must use an ethernet connection.
For a desktop I wanted smooth vertical coverage over an angle wider than a typical 2-way. The design also works with the groundplane (desk) instead of against it like a conventional speaker would. The DSP is also flexible to support different voicings, EQ for bass extension, and adjusting for placement other than a desktop (such as on a stand in a 2-channel system or nearfield listening ).
14.5" (H) x 6 3/8" (W) x 9" (D). The frequency range will depend on the application and desired output capability. With the DSP software I can make the response very flat and also voice the system for specific preferences.
