8c. Accurate. Adaptive. All-in-one.
Completely accurate music reproduction requires more than a thoroughly optimized speaker. It requires a speaker that works together with the acoustics of the listening room.
The 8c is more than just a loudspeaker. It is a unique acoustic concept, because its revolutionary design provides constant directivity from 100 Hz upwards. As a result, the 8c is above and beyond any other system in terms of neutrality, precision, and in-room tonal balance.
The 8c represents our commitment to accuracy and clarity. With its constant directivity from 100Hz upwards and +/-0.5dB frequency response from 35Hz upwards, music can now be experienced exactly as it was intended. Nothing is added, nothing left out.
Experience the sensation of truly accurate music reproduction, hear truth in audio like never before.
Tune the system to the room, not the room to the system. 8c’s adapt to the room they are in and can be placed (very) close to room boundaries without losing performance.
To achieve this, 8c’s combine a proprietary waveguide tweeter with an acoustic cardioid midrange, boundary-coupled bass drivers and active room matching. The result: superb acoustical reproduction in any room.
Besides drivers, the 8c’s small footprint presence holds high-end DACs, amps, subwoofers and a DSP. The system also comes with room matching and streaming capabilities out-of-the-box.
All components match each other perfectly and together deliver a “big sound” at 106 dB continuously from 35 Hz upwards, while keeping the signal-to-noise ratio very high.
From the smooth baffle to the solid oak cabinet, the 8c’s construction is designed to look as clean as it sounds.
After the 8c’s are automatically discovered on your LAN, you’ll have full control of settings like gain, distance to front and side walls, updates and many parametric filters. Internet connectivity is not required.
Besides balanced analogue or AES3 input, you will able in the near future to stream digital music directly to your 8c’s. Setup left and right position using your mobile device and the rest is done automatically.
Within your LAN, 8c’s can be grouped into multiple zones. Perfectly synchronized music can then be played effortlessly in those zones.
Automatic updates can keep your 8c’s up-to-date with industry standards and trends. After extensive testing periods, new firmware versions are made available from our cloud based software platform. If so desired and set up, 8c’s will download and install these updates automatically, adding new features overnight.
