The all-new Xeo 10 wireless active hi-fi speaker proves that ‘versatility’ needn’t mean ‘compromise’.
Put it on a shelf. On your desk. On stands. Wherever and however you use it, you’re guaranteed all the performance you’d expect from 45 years of audio expertise.
Xeo 10 updates and improves the outgoing Xeo 2 model with new components, new tunings and new finishes… even new packaging. Make no mistake, this is far more than just a new look.
Xeo 10: features
If you place the new Xeo 10 next to an older Xeo 2, the first thing you’ll notice is the smoother, sleeker design. We’ve mounted the driver to the baffle from behind – meaning no more visible screws, and given the solid aluminium front baffle a new brushed finish. The Xeo 10 is available in Black Satin (with a black baffle and grille) or White Satin (with a grey baffle and grille) finishes.
Inside the super-rigid composite cabinet you’ll find a new, optimised 14cm MSP woofer and one of our signature 28mm soft-dome tweeters (a technology we’ve been using since the very beginning, and which has appeared in every single high-end speaker we’ve ever produced).
And since this is an active speaker, each driver has its own dedicated 65W digital amplifier. That not only means we can fine-tune each amp specifically for the driver it’s powering, it means we have even greater control over the speaker’s overall performance. (For more information on active vs passive speakers, click here.)
The Xeo 10 has an updated tuning with improved limiter algorithms for better high-volume performance, as well as a higher theoretical crossover point – which means the tweeter can reach deeper in its frequency range for a bigger overlap with the woofer’s upper limit.
Want a translation? It means a far smoother balance between bass and treble, and also improved off-axis performance – so if even if you’ve been muscled out of the the ‘sweet spot’ by your jealous friends, you can still get the full benefit of your music.
Of course, you still get everything that made the Xeo 2 an award-winner: direct inputs, touch-sensitive volume controls, and position-sensitive controls (tell the speakers if they’re in free space, against a wall or in a corner and they’ll adjust their performance accordingly). That’s not to mention full-fat, true hi-res 24-bit/96kHz performance and compatibility with the optional Dynaudio Connect box (which gives you even more inputs, DLNA, multi-room audio and more).
And to top it off, it’s specifically designed to work with the optional Dynaudio desk stand and dedicated wall-mount, as well as Vesa 100 mountings, for massive flexibility in placement.
See? It’s more than just a pretty face.
