The slimline Excite X34 stands less than only 3 feet 1 1/2" tall and is only 6 2/3" wide, but its dual MSP mid/woofers, coated soft dome tweeter and special dispersion character serve up unmistakably high-end sound.
With its extremely lightweight aluminium voice coils and greater driver membrane radiating area and larger enclosure volume than a compact speaker, it can produce deep, powerful bass even in spacious rooms from its twin 14cm long-throw MSP mid-bass drivers and 28mm tweeter. Precise fine-tuning of the crossover optimises dispersion for incredibly an accurate, three-dimensional presentation of the recording. Just as the artist intended. The X34 is also extremely amplifier-friendly due to its ultra-linear 8 Ohm impedance.
The exquisitely finished cabinet includes a cloth grille secured by concealed magnets, and has a smart base construction: on hardwood floors, the X34 can stand on four resonance-absorbing feet, while four adjustable integrated spikes may be used to achieve a perfect foundation on carpeted surfaces.
The X34 is one of Pearl Audio's most popular speakers because it offers very high performance with a good amount of bass dynamics, but in a much smaller than average and very attractive form factor. It's considerably more petite than other high performance floor standing loudspeakers.
A great pairing with Linn DSM and Rega Brio amplifiers. One of our favorite small systems is a half width Rega Brio / Rega CD with the Dynaudio X28 as an excellent small footprint system for ~$5K. Also pairs quite nicely with the McIntosh MC275 tube amplifier (what doesn't?).
The Dynaudio Excite X14 is on display at Pearl Audio Video.
