Dynaudio XEO 5 Test

Can wireless powered speakers be real high end? Yes! With digital radio technology, Dynaudio and audio Pro offer not only smart solutions for elegant interiors, but also audiophile sound.

They look beautiful, the photos of modern living, where elegant stand boxes free-standing take the best place and no cable does the noble Interior. In journals such as the AUDIO, you will sometimes find glossy photographs that can make smooth the Lady of the House to the Hi-Fi fan: so unremarkable, so tidy, so quickly. But with the reality they have mostly little to do–which often looks: A tower of completely heterogeneous, as free as chaotic wired electronic components is centered on an old-like rack space, and the true Highender moved a few possible tubular stripping to the boxes. The wife in turn determines that the boxes have to stand close to the wall or in the corner, and nobody is happy in the end. The dream of the invisible music system and the wireless-controlled active speakers is so old how long unfulfilled. The first experiments with analog FM transmission and manual alignment were suitable before all errors to the balcony or terrace PA highfidelen qualities, not to mention.

Practice: Rau mine measurement even made Only a trouble-free and uncompressed signal transmission settled with the digital transmission technology and frequencies in the gigahertz range realize. So the Danes by Dynaudio began to develop the first real high-end boxes with completely wireless transmission: the Xeo. Doch already indicate the true audiophile concerns: can it be conducive in sound quality if the music signals before sending back must be digitized? The Dynaudio answer is simple: it must be even no analog signal, the transmitter also processed a optical digital signal (from CD / DVD or network player) or docks directly to the PC/laptop via USB and sends lossless data directly from the Rechner. Egal whether 44/16 CD or 48/24 from the network player – the data to each full-resolution transfer uncompressed by the transmitter , the volume control only takes place in the box. Done a supplied Infrared remote control respond to only the respective speakers in the XEO.

Dynaudio has here already thinking further and made it fit the XEO system for smaller Multiroom systems: so a pair of XEO can intercept theoretically in every room the signals of the transmitter, also use a seperate is conceivable, which can then reproduce a sum signal in Mono at the push of the switch. For any room can be individually defined a volume and one of the three sources (analog, digital, USB) to select. The transmitter sends namely all three signals each at the same time and always in full standing to the available bandwidth without data reduction.

Looks like high-end…

Otherwise you did everything possible to integrate the new system audiophile virtues at Dynaudio. That shows even the optics, which expels the Dynaudio stand box had XEO 5 as a classic, if somewhat smaller. Only the sight of the Blue LED and the receiving sensor for the infrared remote control make it clear: this is no ordinary high-end box. The amazement continues on the back: has no signal input jack, only a narrow power cable connection. Because it relates their signals exclusively wirelessly via digital transmission path from the transmitter, it is controlled exclusively via infrared Remote control. Dabei the inside of the stand box is quite classic: two low-midrange driver in the 14-cm format with a Dynaudio typical membrane made of magnesium-silicate plastic take the low midrange. You, using 50 watt powered powerful digital amplifier, signal separation as the tweeter, by its own Lossless a upstream digital active crossover.

The XEO 5 is therefore a real full active concept and thus the basic concept here conceived from the point of view of the audiophile. This underlines also the handmade at Dynaudio 27-mm lens with special coated fabric membrane, which is used in high-quality passive models. The control taking over a digital signal processor (DSP), which acts as a limiter and reliably protects the chassis such as power amplifiers from Overdrive, the listener, however, before distortion and similar injustice.

… and sounds!

Prior to the hearing level in the case of the XEO of course still the practice test: transmitter switch on, lead to signal, turn up the volume – plays! Installation and adjustment of a technically complex product were rarely so easy. The Dynaudio is recommended also absolute computer and network laymen , even with music from the PC your station is just at the computer as a USB sound card and must be chosen only as an output device.

The first round of the hearing test was waters’ with Roger “Amused To Death” – and the XEO 5 sounded especially with their very low, sovereign and musically perfect-bound low bass much much larger than you ever would have dared to it a box of size. In spite of the very strong foundation of deep bass never lagged after the quickly and transparently represented voices and instruments, but added completely harmoniously in the action. The XEO could mobilise also amazing volume and remained always wonderfully clean – if your bass “Texas Flood” no longer sounded at Stevie Ray Vaughans so powerfully and confidently as at Room size. Auch in terms of figure even seasoned Highender are likely to miss little: she projected the only nine votes in Bach’s “St. Matthew passion” (Kuijken) with instinctive ease and yet carefully positioned in the listening room , reveled in the illumination of the Church Interior and dynamic shades of the piece. The XEO 5 has what it takes, to replace a HiFi system – just because she can sound as good in spite of the slim and smart concept as a whole module Tower for many users.

Conclusion

The XEO shows how high end in the future can look like: smart, wireless, easy to use and sonically on Audiophile level. Whether from your PC, iPod or Classic CD player – particularly that you are free in the choice of sources and can run even simple multi-room I like.
