Fort Worth, Texas – Edifier has added to its tabletop speaker lineup with the e10 Exclaim active bi-amplified 2.0 speaker system for use with a PC, TV, or mobile device.
The $99 speaker pair comes with 3.5mm auxiliary cable to connect to audio sources.
The system features DSP (digital signal processing) and DRC (dynamic range compensation) to provide tonal balance t any volume setting and minimize distortion, the company said.
Each biamplified speaker features three active drivers, with a tweeter and midrange appearing in a narrow vertical enclosure that is attached to a sphere that houses a woofer and acts as a speaker stand. Each speaker is driven by its own 18-watt internal amp to deliver a total of 36 watts RMS power output. Each speaker also incorporates a passive radiator to deepen bass response from the woofer and a separate passive radiator in the midrange/tweeter enclosure to raise efficiency and dynamic range, the company said.
Volume and power/standby controls are located on the side of the master speaker unit.
The speaker is available at Edifier’s web store.
