Air D1 the world’s only one-box luxury loudspeaker
The Air D1 is a completely active, standalone single speaker, using Orbitsound’s proprietary Airsound™ technology, an ingenious approach that delivers to each listener a full and compelling stereo image – exactly as the recording artist intended – without the need for a second speaker. This ingenious tech also means you hear exactly the same tonal and spatial presentation wherever you are in the room – a truly momentous breakthrough in audio design.
Available globally exclusively through Harrods for an initial launch period, The Air D1 boasts a stylishly contemporary design, almost unique among high-end speakers. With its neat contours and ingenious stand arrangement – in which the speaker appears to ‘float’ in mid-air – the Air D1’s visual aesthetic is simultaneously sleek, minimal and quietly high-tech, making it the perfect addition to the modern high-end home.
Audio connection is achieved either wirelessly, connecting your device to the Air D1 via either Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. Or if you prefer, you can connect via any one of the Air D1’s raft of aux analogue, optical digital or ethernet inputs.
Under the direction of highly respected father-and-son team of audio engineers, Ted and Daniel Fletcher, Orbitsound has spent recent years developing and perfecting its revolutionary Airsound™ technology, as well as improving sonic performance still further using a technique called ‘transconductance’.
Transconductance is an ingenious solution to an inherent problem in traditional audio systems. With standard designs, a perfect signal from the amplifier may have distortions added, due to vagaries in the loudspeaker. But with Orbitsound’s Transconductance design, the amplifier continually monitors the behaviour of the loudspeaker, and actively corrects its own output to eliminate all such distortions. The result? A sound that is breathtakingly clear, transparent, dynamic, and precise.
It is in the combination of these two innovative techniques – Airsound and transconductance – that lies the foundations of the Air D1’s incredibly accomplished performance, as well as its hugely innovative high-tech credentials.
The Orbitsound Air D1 is that rarest of things: a new luxury loudspeaker boasting true originality and innovation in every aspect of its design. Between the Air D1’s aesthetic presence and its audio performance, this is truly a high-end loudspeaker fit for the most demanding and elegant of modern homes.
