Excite X14A High-End Bookshelf Speaker

The Excite X14A is an active, high-end, compact loudspeaker, integrating powerful digital amplifiers, proprietary Dynaudio drivers, advanced digital sound processing, and user-adjustable settings to finely tune the sound according to room acoustics or listening preferences. The Excite X14A is the ideal active loudspeaker for smart, modern audio systems. All one needs is to connect a volume-controlled audio source.

Based on Dynaudio’s vast knowledge and experience in crafting state-of-the-art active studio monitors and revered compact home hi-fi loudspeakers, the Excite X14A drive units are tailored to match the amplifier electronics, and the amplifier optimized to match the drivers. This creates the ultimate compact audio system - an excellent active loudspeaker driven by a perfectly-matched power amplifier and based on the award-winning Excite X14 passive model. The Excite X14A utilizes a bi-amped configuration to achieve the best result: one 50-watt digital amplifier powering the bass/midrange driver, while a second 50-watt digital amplifier powers the tweeter. An Excite X14A two-channel setup yields a highly capable 2 x 100W stereo system, and Dynaudio has integrated the most advanced digital power amp modules and DSP design to complement the high-quality soft dome tweeter and MSP (magnesium silicate polymer) long-throw woofer. A rear-ported bass-reflex design further improves bass performance.

The musical quality will be immediately apparent upon first listen - clear and open, yet perfectly balanced and refined, with an impressively deep and tight bass performance for a loudspeaker this size. Sound staging and image between the two speakers is excellent, thanks to the meticulous DSP fine-tuning and optimization of the digital amplification.

The Excite X14A features three equalizer switches that allow one to fine-tune the sonic performance even further, for example, when placing the speaker near a wall, corner, or free-standing. The bass, midrange, and treble can each be individually adjusted in three levels. The high-pass filter (60 or 80Hz) allows one to optionally combine the Excite X14A with a subwoofer. With the high pass filter engaged, lower bass frequencies will be filtered out to be covered by a dedicated sub such as the Dynaudio Sub 250 II.

The rear panel of the Excite X14A features two analogue inputs to choose from, one RCA and one XLR. The input sensitivity can be individually adjusted in three levels. The Excite X14A can be set to either switch on from standby after sensing a music signal (Auto On, Auto Off), or may be left permanently switched on.

 

Debut Carbon DC Esprit SB 3-Speed Turntable With Ortofon 2M Red Cartridge

The most-wanted audiophile design turntable with carbon tonearm, 3 speeds, and DC power supply!  

The first Debut turntable, introduced in the late 1990s, was a revolution for the hi-fi industry. For the first time after the arrival of Compact Disc and the assumed demise of vinyl records, an analogue product re-emerged in the “mass market” – something all music lovers could afford.  

The new Debut Carbon DC Esprit SB was designed to set new standards in this category for the coming decade – perfectly timed as analogue today is again a respected source, while the demand for good turntables with all speeds is growing fast!  

The carbon tube for the tonearm increases stiffness and decreases unwanted resonance. This material is extensively used in high-end tonearms, but – because of cost reasons – was never used in products at lower price levels. Together with other improvements, like an increase in platter size and weight to realize even smoother rotation, the overall sound quality is greatly improved. The approved belt drive design offers a low-noise AC motor with effective motor decoupling (utilising TPE) and an ultra-precision frequency DC-driven AC generator for ultimate speed stability. Ultimate convenience is achieved, because of electronic speed change ("Speed Box") and the possibility of playing 78rpm.  

A simple exchange of stylus to 2M78 (not included) and a drive belt turnover to larger diameter of pulley is required - that's all!

The Debut Carbon Esprit SB USB Turntable comes with Ortofon's 2M Red phono cartridge. The 2M Red Series features an improved engine, which provides an increased output of 5.5mV, and a tipped Elliptical diamond and split pole pins with a copper wire.

 Highlights

  • 33/45 & 78rpm out of the box  
  • Built-in precision speed box with switch on upper side  
  • 8.6” carbon tonearm  
  • Heavy non-resonant acrylic platter  
  • New DC power supply with synchronous AC motor
