Dutch & Dutch 8c (Pair)
The Dutch & Dutch 8c is a highly accurate active studio monitor combining revolutionary design with powerful DSP to offer perfect integration in any room with wide sweet spot and natural and detailed sound.
The Dutch & Dutch 8C uses a proprietary waveguide tweeter with an acoustic cardioid midrange and boundary-coupled bass drivers and active room matching, to provide stunning acoustical reproduction in any room. Unlike traditional speakers, the 8C can be placed closer to room boundaries without losing performance.
Built to provide superior detail and clarity, the 8c provides constant directivity from 100Hz upwards and has a linear frequency response from 35Hz and up (+/- 0.5dB) offering unparalleled neutrality, precision and in-room tonal balance.
The subwoofer is powered by a 500Watts amplifier feeding two high-excursion 8” drivers with boundary loading to ensure uncompromised precision and impact. The cabinet is made of high-quality birch plywood surrounded by stunning solid oak exterior panels.
Despite their compact footprint, the speakers include high-quality DACs, subwoofers, DSP and room matching and streaming capabilities. DSP includes controls to let you fine tune your system, emulate another loudspeaker or simply tweak the sound a little. The DSP can be controlled via its web-based application or a native App on your phone or tablet. Automatic updates are also available with new firmware provided to keep your speaker up-to-date with the latest standards and features.
Completely accurate music reproduction requires more than a thoroughly optimized speaker. It requires a speaker that works together with the acoustics of the listening room.
The 8c is more than just a loudspeaker. It is a unique acoustic concept because its revolutionary design provides constant directivity from 100 Hz upwards. As a result, the 8c is above and beyond any other system in terms of neutrality, precision, and in-room tonal balance.
The 8c represents our commitment to accuracy and clarity. With its constant directivity from 100Hz upwards and +/-0.5dB frequency response from 35Hz upwards, music can now be experienced exactly as it was intended. Nothing is added, nothing left out.
Experience the sensation of truly accurate music reproduction, hear truth in audio like never before.
Tune the system to the room, not the room to the system. 8c’s adapt to the room they are in and can be placed (very) close to room boundaries without losing performance.
To achieve this, 8c’s combine a proprietary waveguide tweeter with an acoustic cardioid midrange, boundary-coupled bass drivers and active room matching. The result: superb acoustical reproduction in any room,.
Besides drivers, the 8c’s small footprint presence holds high-end DACs, amps, subwoofers and a DSP. The system also comes with room matching and streaming capabilities out-of-the-box.
All components match each other perfectly and together deliver a “big sound” at 106 dB continuously from 35 Hz upwards, while keeping the signal-to-noise ratio very high.
