Dynaudio’s Focus Series of Wireless Speakers to Come ‘Dirac Ready’
Dirac and Dynaudio today announced that Dynaudio’s new Focus series of wireless speakers will come “Dirac Ready” to run Dirac Live Room Correction for studio-grade sound. The three models — Focus 10, Focus 30 and Focus 50 — mark the first collaboration between the two audio innovators, and each in the speaker series is now available globally.
Dirac Live — integrated for the first time directly into a streaming speaker — allows users to easily achieve enhanced sound experiences such as a larger sweet spot, more accurate staging, enhanced clarity and voice intelligibility and a deeper, tighter bass.
The interaction between a speaker system and the physical layout of a room has a significant impact on audio quality. Dirac Live digitally compensates for the room’s impact on speaker performance to enable a sound experience previously only possible in a professional studio. Dirac Live accomplishes this through a patented mixed-phase impulse response correction technology that corrects not just magnitude response, but also time domain — critical for accurate staging, clarity, and tight bass.
The new Dirac Live-equipped Focus speakers leverage the legendary Dynaudio driver and the same amplifiers featured in the company’s professional reference monitors to bring studio-quality sound home. Its built-in sophisticated streaming platform delivers a system that will work straight away without required tweaking or accessories.
In addition to Dirac Live, the Focus speakers also support Spotify Connect, TIDAL Connect, Apple AirPlay 2, Google Chromecast, Qplay, UPnP, Netradioand and Bluetooth. Additional features include an auto-switch that intelligently adjusts user inputs depending on which source they want to use, while coaxial, optical digital inputs and analogue connections mean even a CD player or turntable can sit front and center alongside streaming services.
Th speaker cabinets are available in four contemporary finishes (White High Gloss, Black High Gloss, Walnut Wood and Blonde Wood).
