The Next Generation of Stand-Mounted High-End Loudspeakers
Dynaudio has spent decades repeatedly redefining the compact loudspeaker – and with the 300W Focus 20 XD, it’s happened again. The MSP driver and 28mm tweeter from the rest of the Focus XD range appear here, too – along with all the authority and control of the larger speakers. It’s quality, concentrated.
The Focus XD range is a complete Hi-Fi system… without the clutter of a complete Hi-Fi system. These high-end active speakers bring true high-resolution wireless streaming, from every conceivable source, to your home.
Send in a digital signal (wired or wireless, it’s your choice), and it’ll stay that way right up until the last possible moment – meaning it stays pure all the way from the recording studio to the speaker driver.
There’s no clutter, no fuss… and no catch.
Running the show is cutting-edge digital processing technology capable of handling full-fat, 24-bit/192kHz hi-res files.
All the speakers in the range share common controls and connections – so if you want to mix-and-match different models from the range, you can. There’s digital coaxial in and out, plus analogue input (with adjustable sensitivity), as well as a seven-position control for fine-tuning the speakers’ placement in your room.
And if you add the Dynaudio Connect box, you get digital optical, another digital coaxial and RCA and 3.5mm analogue inputs – plus mini-USB (which can stream 24-bit/96kHz files), aptX Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity (including Spotify Connect and DLNA).
The Focus XD’s firmware can even be upgraded when our engineers have another Eureka! moment (they get them a lot). In fact, that’s exactly what’s just happened. In the 2017 version, not only have they redesigned the crossovers and found a way to use less processing (for even cleaner reproduction), they’ve managed to extract more volume from the drivers without distortion or compression. And because there’s less processing happening there, Dynaudio has been able to use more in the EQ for even better speaker-position compensation. They’ve also included tech from their LYD pro-studio monitors that lets you tweak overall brightness with a switch on the back.
