Highlights
2 x 50 W RMS Hi-Fi sound/Class D
Colourful LCD display
SoundSphere
Fill a room with your favourite music with the
2 x 50 W RMS music output power and Class
"D" Digital Amplifier. The Amplifier takes an
analogue signal, converts it into a digital signal
and then amplifies it. The signal then enters a
demodulation filter to produce the final result.
The amplified digital output delivers all the
advantages of digital audio, including improved
sound quality. The Amplifier also has more
than 90% efficiency compared to a traditional
AB amplifier. This high efficiency translates into
a powerful amplifier with a small footprint.
Enliven your listening experience with a vivid
full colour LCD, and enjoy easy and convenient
control of all your music. As you listen to your
favourite songs, album art shows up on-screen,
adding life and sparkle to songs. Track
selection becomes a breeze as the multi-line
LCD shows you songs sorted by genre, artist
or album.
Bask in the glory and energy of music as
SoundSphere gives you each note as the artist
intended. Delivering clear and natural audio,
SoundSphere creates a sound impression that
is deeper and wider. The result is life-like audio
that will make you believe the artists are
performing in front of you. Each SoundSphere
speaker features a tweeter that hangs above
the speaker box. The tweeter is able to emit
sound more clearly and in all directions.
Precise audio crossover engineering and
careful positioning of the woofer to embrace
the tweeter ensures minimised interference
and even more natural sound.

Let nature bring you its best. Natural materials
have proven themselves unbeatable as acoustic
building components. Speakers made with
aluminium are more rigid, forming a more ideal
enclosure that naturally impedes vibrations,
optimises soundwave propagation and
produces sound with more fidelity. The result
is gorgeous looking speakers that give you
sound that stays true to the original recording.
The gold-plated speaker connector ensures
better audio signal transmission compared to
traditional click-fit connections. It also
minimises the electrical signal loss from the
amplifier to the speaker box, resulting in sound
reproduction that's as close to reality as
possible.
Play your music and movies
Play DVD, DivX ®, MP3, Non-DRM AAC,
WMA, FLAC, OGG and JPG.
Load up your music collection on the USB
storage device to enjoy any song, anytime. The
system accesses your music content via the
built-in USB socket. You can then use the
system to browse easily through all your music
content by album, artist, genre or track. While
listening to music, you can also enjoy your
favourite photos.
