Audience has just announced that they are now shipping their new ClairAudient The ONE single-driver loudspeaker. At just 7 inches high by 5.5 inches wide by 7 inches deep, the new ONE loudspeaker is a desktop listener’s dream come true.
The new ONE speaker utilizes Audience’s A3 full-range driver coupled with a passive radiator. The A3-S driver is a full-range high power, 12mm excursion, ultra-low distortion transducer. It eliminates the need for a separate woofer, midrange driver, tweeter and crossover network – and their inherent sonic compromises of sonically dissimilar drivers, phase distortions, loss of resolution and transient response degradation. With no crossover, The ONE can be direct-coupled to a connect amplifier enabling the amplifiers full damping factor to be utilized and in-turn providing for great control of the driver.
The ClairAudient The ONE employs high-quality parts including low-mass binding posts and Audience Ohno (monocrystal) Auric internal wiring. The ONE has a flat frequency response of 50Hz to 20kHz in-room when placed on a desk or near a wall. For true full-frequency response when The ONE is situated away from a wall, a subwoofer may be required.
Finish options includes high-gloss black, red, white and blue, all with black grilles that attach magnetically to the ONE. The Audience ClairAudient The ONE loudspeaker is now available at a suggested retail price of $995 U.S. per pair in black and blue finishes. White and red finishes are expected to be available soon.
