Fostex PX-5HS Active Bookshelf Speakers

The new Fostex PX-5HS is a 2-way Active Hi-Fi Speaker System consisting of 5.2-inch aramid fiber woofer and 1-inch soft dome tweeter with high performance 35-watt/18-watt digital amplifier. Additionally, a 1-inch Urethane film laminated polyester fiber dome tweeter is tuned with back chamber for smooth high frequency reproduction. There are Rotary Encoders for Volume and Tone Controls with LED indicators. Additionally, Auto Standby / Auto Operation functions for electric power saving are included with a fade in function to gradually increase the output level when powering on.

Fostex PX-5HS BackIt inherits the concept of Fostex reputed professional reference monitor, model PX-5, but has been carefully tuned to hi-fi audio listening with the aim of delivering a natural and clear sound in your listening room. The biggest advantage of an active speaker system is that the speakers and amplifier are best tuned at factory for maximum performance. Space saving is another advantage that is ideal to build a minimal high resolution audio system together with a USB/DAC and a computer.
