Ac­tive Speak­ers of the Year

Sound+Image - - Contents -

The Xeo 20s not only look stylish and sound fab­u­lous (es­pe­cially when you turn them up), they of­fer the sim­plic­ity of an ac­tive speaker so­lu­tion, with Blue­tooth con­ve­nience when you need it, while pro­vid­ing best qual­ity from the flex­i­ble and high-qual­ity in­puts, both on the speak­ers them­selves or by adding the Dy­nau­dio Con­nect box, from which they can stream con­nected sources at high-res qual­ity. Dy­nau­dio has made sen­si­ble changes with its lat­est it­er­a­tion of the Xeo con­cept — the Xeo 20s are pret­tier, more curvi­lyedged and with­out the IR re­ceiver that sat atop the Xeo 4, and re­quir­ing no link ca­ble, so that while there is a Mas­ter and a Slave, the two com­mu­ni­cate wire­lessly with each other. We en­joyed them most giv­ing them a clean dig­i­tal sig­nal via their op­ti­cal in­put, but Blue­tooth stream­ing was not much the in­fe­rior sound. Rear switches ad­just for po­si­tion­ing, and of­fer the fur­ther abil­ity of trans­mit­ting to a net­work of other Xeo units in the home.

Since no amps are re­quired and all you need is a phone (and ad­di­tional sources as de­sired), their price of $3399 also starts to look quite the bar­gain as well, for this clever com­pact sys­tem that can ex­pand in both di­rec­tions.

JUDGES’ COM­MENT “Not only the sim­plic­ity of an ac­tive speaker so­lu­tion, but ex­pand­able in­puts and out­puts, with Blue­tooth con­ve­nience when you need it, and best of all they sound great when you crank them up.”

BusiSoft AV’s Michael Di Meglio and Ge­orge Poutakidis brought their dou­ble act to the stage for Dy­nau­dio’s sec­ond award.
