Hercules Debuts XPS 2.0 80 DJ Monitors
Hercules has debuted the XPS 2.0 80, their first monitoring speaker system for DJs. The Hercules XPS 2.0 80 DJ Monitor speaker system claims to offer precise sound restitution, enabling DJs to become aware of every detail in their sound and to hone their mix to perfection.
The XPS 2.0 80 DJ Monitor speaker system comprises two compact wooden satellites, designed to reduce clutter in your home studio. The front face’s curvature has been calculated to ensure a clear and balanced sound flow. Each satellite features a silk-dome tweeter, for sharp and pure treble. At the center of each satellite, a 4-inch woofer with a Kevlar diaphragm – a material offering consistent performance, that is less subject to deformation than other materials – delivers ample and homogenous medium and bass sounds. Finally, the XPS 2.0 80 DJ Monitor satellites’ front face features a dual port system, often required by DJs to receive and assess all the bass frequencies in their creations.
Offering simple control over advanced features, the XPS 2.0 80 DJ Monitor speaker system features user-friendly front-mounted buttons that allow DJs to adjust the general volume, as well as bass and treble levels. The system offers ample connectivity options, enabling them to connect their computer, DJing equipment, mixing device, MP3 player, game console or any other audio source:
» One RCA input (for the main source)
» One balanced TRS input (6.35 mm)
» One line input
» One headphones output (speakers are automatically deactivated when headphones are connected)
» Satellite measurements: 10.8 x 7.5 x 7 inches
» Right satellite weight: 9.3lbs / Left satellite weight: 6.3lbs
» Total power output: 40 W
» Peak power: 80 W
The Hercules XPS 2.0 80 DJ Monitor will be available late October 2011 for only $170.
