Logitech heeft een tweetal nieuwe speakersetjes op de markt gekwakt. Hier heb je wat spul uit de press release:
SoundMan X1 and SoundMan G1 extend the SoundMan family from the high-end SoundMan X2 through the mid-range and entry-level price points. SoundMan X1, which combines a subwoofer and satellite speakers, carries an estimated retail price of $69. SoundMan G1, a two-piece speaker set, is available at an estimated street price of $39.
The entire SoundMan family incorporates into its compact, contemporary industrial design the enhanced sound reproduction achieved through Linear Magnetic Drive (LIMAD) technology. All speakers are magnetically shielded.
The SoundMan X1 speakers produce realistic, high-definition sound for Internet downloads, CD music, multimedia files, and MP3 audio. A sleek subwoofer accurately reproduces the full bass range and combined with the two satellite speakers, delivers 25 watts RMS of power. The SoundMan G1 speakers, which provide eight watts RMS of power, can accurately reproduce the full spectrum of sound for games, music CD's, Web site audio clips and multimedia programs. SoundMan G1 has a standby/mute button. Because of the small footprint of each system, users can place the speakers on a desk, bookcase or in an entertainment center. All SoundMan products are based on LIMAD technology. This proprietary method of sound reproduction uses rare-earth neodymium magnets to accurately capture the full spectrum of sound in a compact design.
Developed by soundmatters, LIMAD enables speakers to provide output at all frequencies in proportion to input, and to accommodate sudden changes in frequency without distortion. It also allows speakers and subwoofers to handle a wide dynamic range, including low frequency sounds that are difficult to accurately reproduce, such as classical music, male voices, cellos and pianos.
