The next generation of floor-standing high-end loudspeakers - completly wireless No amplifier. No speaker cables. No compromise.
These compact 450 Watt floorstanders use our proprietary MSP woofers and precision-coated soft-dome tweeters, just like their bigger brothers, the Focus 60 XDs. Their tri-amp configuration and intelligent digital amplifiers means each driver gets exactly the right amount of the right frequencies, at the right time, to help your music sound exactly as it should.
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, we’ve been able to use more in the EQ for even better speaker-position compensation. We’ve also included tech from our LYD pro-studio monitors that lets you tweak overall brightness with a switch on the back.
Use them with your existing system (they’ll integrate just fine), build a multiroom set-up (you can use them with the Xeo range too), or even hook them up to your TV… while getting genuine high-end wireless hi-fi into the bargain.
Review by Audio Test, Germany
Earlier this year, March to be exact, we released a new firmware update to the Focus XD series (together with a new name and colour scheme). With the updated, upgraded firmware offers improved quality, more fine-tuning when it comes to room correction, and all the other tweaks and fettles our engineers have applied. Now, the first review of the Focus 30 XD is here thanks to the German magazine, Audio Test. We have collected our favourite quotes from the wonderful review below. Enjoy.
In the end, Audio Test gives the Focus 30 XD an impressive 94% score.
