Premium speaker set uses high-end material in construction
Audience today announced that it is now shipping the ClairAudient "The ONE" single-driver speaker set. The new model is the smallest in Audience's ClairAudient speaker lineup, at just seve inches high by 5.5 inches wide by seven inches deep. The ONE is tailored for desktop music listening, compact high-end stereo systems and surround-sound home theater.
The ONE incorporates the same exclusive A3-S full-range crossover-less driver as every Audience ClairAudient loudspeaker, along with a tailored passive radiator. The A3-S is a full-range high-power, 12mm excursion, ultra-low distortion transducer. The custom design eliminates the need for a separate woofer, midrange driver, tweeter and crossover network. The ONE is optimized for 50Hz to 20kHz in-room response when placed on a desk or near a wall; a subwoofer is required for full-frequency response when the units are positioned away from a wall.
The Audience ClairAudient The ONE loudspeaker is now available for $995 per pair in black and blue finishes; white and red finishes will be available soon. Available accessories include desktop stands at $75 per pair and Audience Ohno speaker cables at $199 per 3-foot pair or $249 for a 5-foot pair.
