High Power Makes For Better Sound
The Expressionist Ultra benefits from the 200 watts of continuous power that push sound through the speakers. Its boom comes from five digital amplifiers powering five separate drivers for an authentically tuned sonic explosion. Each speaker driver - the 75-millimetre midranges, the 25-millimetre neodymium tweeters and the 165-millimetre long-throw subwoofer -- is individually fired and powered precisely as the source demands it. The result is crisp audio detail and dramatic bass that you can genuinely feel, an audio sensation that takes music, movies and games to a whole new listening level.
Fingertip Control Over Tone and Accessories
All adjustments for treble, bass, and volume are housed in one convenient satellite pod, so you can place the controls precisely where you need them. An integrated auxiliary input on the pod makes it quick and easy to connect your MP3 player or plug into your headphone jack for privacy. The included RCA adapter gives you the ability to connect the Expressionist Ultra to your TV, DVD player, or game console, -- at the same time your computer is connected -- giving you the option of a compact speaker system that enhances any entertainment setup.
Designed for the Way Enthusiasts Play Their Music Today
Computers are becoming the new home stereo for many people. The computer is where digital consumers organise and archive their music, movies, and TV shows. They want an audio system that sounds great and plays loud without distorting their favourite artist, movie scene or video game. The Expressionist Ultra is designed to be a true music speaker that happens to work with computers - good enough to replace the traditional home stereo system.
Further, the showcase design of the Expressionist Ultra is designed to look good in the main living space where the computer "entertainment centre" is becoming more common. The contemporary industrial design of the satellites celebrates the audio components by emphasizing visible acoustic components set into a translucent bezel. This angled design carries over to the trapezoid-shaped subwoofer, which is functionally engineered to break up troublesome standing waves to draw out every note of high fidelity and uncoloured sound.
