Aerix unveils Duet – an architectural stunner
and high-specification sound system
London, 04 October 2016 – Aerix introduces Duet, an innovative high-specification, all-in-one sound system, complete with integrated CD player as well as wireless music streaming compatibility. Using cutting-edge technology, Duet creates an immersive ‘360 degree’ audio atmosphere — no matter where you are in the room.
The Duet design houses two high-end specification horns above and below, one for high notes and another for bass. When paired with powerful, vertical-firing drivers and tweeters, pushing sound waves outward, evenly in a 360 degrees halo. The system incorporates two minimalist cubes – each features aluminum plating with flawless finish – which sit on top of a matted chrome plate, delivering stand-out visuals. Duet integrates the latest DTS Play-Fi module and advanced Bluetooth, letting you play from various sources, such as Spotify, Deezer, Pandora, Tidal, Songza, and many more.
“Duet is a masterpiece of acoustics engineering and enduring elegance/design/simplicity. It breaks through the constraints that have always limited stand-alone speakers,” says Jimmy Chang, co-founder of Aerix and
creator of Duet, “40 years and three generations of building premium hi-fi
sound systems have culminated in this creation. When it plays, music fills every inch of the atmosphere. Duet has taken existing options of stand-alone speakers to the next level.”
Atmospheric Surround Sound
Duet is uniquely engineered to make listening to music an immersive experience; its advanced tuning technology revolutionizes how machines deliver sound. Whereas the optimum sound range of traditional all-in-one systems is 45 degrees at best, Duet delivers amazing sound at 360 degrees, saturating every corner of the room with what its maker calls an “Atmosphere of Sound” or “Aerix”.
Hyper Intelligent Sound for Humans
Our advanced DSP chips are optimised with exclusive VIS technology, the latest in human auditory psychoacoustics, and include three built-in modes: Relax, Natural, or Hyper. Each setting is precisely engineered to deliver nothing less than the most premium listening experience.
Dynamic Sound Wave Drivers
Music should sound alive. Duet does this, fully absorbing its audience and their auditory senses with sound so real that it feels alive.
Powerful vertical-firing drivers compress airwaves downward to the specially
designed panel at the bottom of each unit, extending sound evenly and consistently, every time, everywhere.
State of the Art Components
Duet’s high-specification components set itself apart from stand-alone stereos that came before now. Aerix insists on the highest standard for even hidden details, making an audible difference between regular and spectacular sound.
● 1.5-inch transducer
● circular horn diffuser
● double magnetic rounded subwoofer
● bell-curved horned and a conical base for precise bass reflection
The Humble Cube
An international team from Switzerland, France, Germany, and Taiwan designed Duet. This design collective shared a vision for creating a product that is at once simple and sophisticated, that can stand the test of changing fashion and grow old with us. The humble cube reflects these values with its classic lines, clean edges, and precise design details.
Muted Light Signals
Listeners should be able to experience of music without distractions, which is why Duet’s LED light display, for navigating functional settings, is only as attention-grabbing as it needs to be—muted and hidden behind a layer of mesh aluminium.
The Aerix Duet launches in the UK in January 2017 at an RRP of £1499.00. Aerix website
