NuForce S-1 Desktop Speakers

NuForce S-1 Desktop Speakers

The S-1 is a desktop speaker designed to coordinate with the NuForce Icon amplifier. Specifically, a standard RJ-45 Cat 5 cable signals the Icon's equalizer to optimize the S-1's response characteristics. The tight integration with Icon and unique design enable S-1 to achieve sonic performance equivalent to speakers costing several times its price.

The S-1's full-range, Nuforce-engineered driver utilizes a lightweight yet rigid titanium cone, a die-cast basket with a vented voice coil, and a neodymium motor structure, all of which contribute to the speaker's excellent linearity and power-handling capabilities.

A waveguide feature similar to that of NuForce's top-of-the-line S-9 loudspeaker accounts for the S-1's exemplary midrange gain, dispersion pattern and eradication of diffraction artifacts.

The S-1 speakers are expected to be released at the end of the month for $249/pair in black/black, black/red, black/silver or silver/blue color.
