Dutch & Dutch at Strictly Stereo
I am proud to announce that Strictly Stereo has been appointed as an authorised retailer of Dutch & Dutch loudspeakers. Dutch & Dutch is based in Maassluis near Rotterdam. They produce a small range of really exceptional fully active speakers.
The latest edition to the range is the Studio 8c stand mount speaker. The Studio 8c features a revolutionary cabinet design which provides constant directivity from 100 Hz upwards. As a result, the 8c offers exceptional neutrality, precision, and in-room tonal balance.
The tweeter and midrange driver are powered by two 250 watt amplifiers. Extreme low frequencies are handled by a dedicated 500 watt amplifier and two high-excursion 8” bass drivers, which employ boundary loading for maximum bass precision and impact. This approach makes them ideal for use close to the front wall. The system incorporates digital signal processing for driver integration and to adjust each speaker's output to match its position relative to room boundaries.
Each Studio 8c speaker is equipped with a wired Ethernet connection. This is used with an accompanying web-based app to control speaker's configuration parameters. Development is underway to integrate streaming capabilities directly into the speakers. Dutch & Dutch already has a Roon Ready firmware update in beta and is working on further streaming options. For the time being, the speakers will accept an AES (S/PDIF compatible) digital input or balanced analogue input. Just add your choice of analogue or digital source and you have a very elegant and extremely high performance system.
