".the petite Dane locks onto guitar strings and tracks the most minute ebb and flow of their vibrations, how it reveals the softest of level changes in vocals - it's really high class." Ralph Werner - Fairaudio
The Dynaudio Focus 110A is the Focus 110 with two built-in amplifiers per speaker, one for the woofer and one for the tweeter. The benefits of this approach are extensive. Besides eliminating the need for a stereo power amplifier, the crossover is placed before the amplification ensuring the most direct amplifier/speaker interface possible. This Active technology ensures a powerful and precise sound reproduction.
Benefiting from Dynaudio's vast knowledge and experience developing active studio monitors, the 110A drive units have been precisely tailored to perfectly match the internal amplifiers, just as the amplifiers have been to match the Focus drivers.
The integrated D 280 tweeter with its coated 28mm soft dome fascinates with its incredibly detailed resolution of the high frequencies - a level of performance for which Dynaudio has become renowned. The shape of the new Esotec+ mid/bass is optimized. Its cone's characteristic curvature aids imaging so that even at short listening distances or in a smaller room a realistic, true three-dimensional soundstage can be enjoyed.
Without the need for an external amplifier, the uses for the Focus 110A are endless. Perfect for a purist desktop system or studio monitoring, the Focus 110A also makes a fantastic speaker for a two channel music system. Connect directly to your preamplifier or to make things even simpler use a Bel Canto or Peachtree iDac and the built-in volume control.
The actively-powered Dynaudio Focus 110 A is the most versatile high-end compact loudspeaker ever made. With its integrated stereo power amplifier and advanced Dynaudio driver technology, the multipurpose Focus 110 A serves as the ideal loudspeaker for a wide range of audio/video and music systems. Dynaudio's legendary specially-coated soft dome tweeter and proprietary MSP (magnesium silicate polymer) mid/bass driver combine with sophisticated dual-amplifier technology to form this unique "active" loudspeaker.
Despite the fact that Dynaudio has built a very strong name in the audio industry with its ranges of passive (better yet, let's call them traditional) speakers, it has been very nice to see the MC 15 active monitors attain a lot of success among the critical listeners. Building on both the worldwide-recognized excellence coupled with the traditional top-shelf manufacturing and the massive appreciation for its previous release (the MC 15), Dynaudio has taken another step in the field of active loudspeakers and is now announcing the Focus 110A, an active re-enactment of its already-successful Focus 110 desktop series.
Each driver is powered by its own 50W high-class amplifier, and thus you'll end up with a massive 200W power rating you can obtain from a pair of Dynaudio Focus 110A speakers. These digital monitors can receive signal from almost any source, including iPods, flatscreen TVs, or portable players, and your top-notch audiophile rack, of course.
If you're looking for a pair of speakers capable of delivering you a lot of punch with extreme clarity and crisp details, while packing serious power in a diminutive cabinet, then the new Focus 110A might be one of the best choices you could ever make.
Unlike other similar desktop monitors that have had a near-field operation, the new Dynaudio Focus 110A can be used in a wider variety of applications, from reference listening to studio monitoring, or simply for enjoying the great sound of your fav music, at home. Optimized for normal room listening, these speakers will perform equally well in your living room as they would in an audiophile-dedicated and specially-treated ambient.
The Dynaudio Focus 110A sport a wooden cabinet with a massive rear-firing bass reflex round port with flared edges, increasing the LF response for a deep, rolling bass. The mid-bass driver comes with a Magnesium Silicate Polymer cone with the Dynaudio trademark design and a generous surround for a longer excursion and a punchier rumble. At the other end of the audio spectrum, you'll find a coated, soft dome tweeter for shimmering highs and well-contoured sonic representation.
