Edifier Spinnaker Bluetooth Wireless Speakers Announced

710224.jpg

Edifier introduced Spinnaker, their flagship Bluetooth desktop speaker system, featuring a sail inspired design. Each Spinnaker speaker is 16.5-inch tall and its unique shape is designed to project sound towards the listener with front facing tweeters and mid-range drivers, reinforced with a downward firing bass driver. Spinnaker is Bluetooth enabled, making it a versatile product for wireless use in the home and office. A USB rechargeable wireless remote controls the volume, track navigation and play/pause preferences effortlessly within a 10-meter radius (30 ft).

The sail inspired design enhances the sound in a number of ways. By using a tapered cylindrical shape, internal standing waves and resonances are unable to collect to a measurable degree in any area within the enclosure, and in fact cancel themselves out at various frequencies. Additionally, the aluminum frame paired with internal damping materials reduces unwanted enclosure vibration. The result is a more lifelike and accurate sound presentation for the listener.

Tri-Amping
A technique commonly used in large-scale sound amplification for concerts, Tri-amping is the practice of connecting three audio amplifiers to a loudspeaker unit: one to power the bass driver (woofer), one to power the mid-range and the third to power the treble driver (tweeter). A single amplifier can typically power a woofer, mid and tweeter only through a crossover filter, which protects each driver from signals outside its frequency range. However, the crossover itself wastes power, so tri-amping is a way to avoid this problem.

Electronic Crossovers
Possible phase shifts from a passive crossover are eliminated by using DSP electronic crossovers within Spinnaker's amplifiers. In addition, Edifier engineers have freed up valuable internal space within Spinnaker by eliminating a large passive crossover printed circuit board, with coils, capacitors and resistors. The more internal air volume available, the better and deeper the bass can become.
