Dynaudio MC 15 PC Speakers
Normally the creator of high-end home stereos, Dynaudio at CES made its beginning forays into the multimedia envirnoment by announcing the MC 15, its first speakers meant for computers, music players, and video game consoles. The copmany hopes to bring the audio quality normally reserved for home theaters to the desktop and has supplied the 2-channel satellites with dual 50W amplifiers, providing more power by themselves than most subwoofer-equiped PC speakers. Tighter bass response is also provided through an extremely rigid cabinet, Dynaudio says. Accurate treble is maintained by fabric dome tweeters and a three-band adjustable EQ.
The system can be expanded even further, the company adds. Extra satellites can be added for more overall power; a new subwoofer, the Sub 250MC, can also be installed to lower the bass frequency from 55 to 29Hz and supply an extra 200W of power to the overal system. Dynaudio sets the price for its premium MC 15s at $1,299; the subwoofer is available separately for $1,000. Both pieces will ship in March.
