Dutch & Dutch 8c Studio - Adaptive Studio Monitor
Completely accurate music reproduction requires more than a thoroughly optimized speaker. It requires a speaker that works together with the acoustics of the listening room. The Dutch and Dutch 8c is more than just a loudspeaker. It is a unique acoustic concept, because its revolutionary design provides constant directivity from 100 Hz upwards. As a result, the 8c is above and beyond any other system in terms of neutrality, precision, and in-room tonal balance.Accurate
The 8c represents Dutch and Dutch's commitment to accuracy and clarity. With its constant directivity from 100 Hz upwards and ±0.5 dB frequency response from 35 Hz upwards, music can now be experienced exactly as it was intended. Nothing is added, nothing left out. Experience the sensation of truly accurate music reproduction, hear truth in audio like never before.Adaptive
Tune the system to the room, not the room to the system. 8c’s adapt to the room they are in and can be placed (very) close to room boundaries without losing performance. To achieve this, 8c’s combine a proprietary waveguide tweeter with an acoustic cardioid midrange, boundary-coupled bass drivers and active room matching. The result: superb acoustical reproduction in any room.All-in-one
Besides drivers, the 8c’s small footprint presence holds high-end DACs, amps, subwoofers and a DSP. The system also comes with room matching and streaming capabilities out-of-the-box. All components match each other perfectly and together deliver a “big sound” at 106 dB continuously from 35 Hz upwards, while keeping the signal-to-noise ratio very high.Intuitive controls
Group or individually control every 8c in your network through the simple yet powerful user interface, available as web-based application or native app. After the 8c’s are automatically discovered on your LAN, you’ll have full control of settings like gain, distance to front and side walls, updates and many parametric filters. Internet connectivity is not required.Effortless updates
Automatic updates can keep your 8c’s up-to-date with industry standards and trends. After extensive testing periods, new firmware versions are made available from Dutch and Dutch's cloud based software platform. If so desired and set up, 8c’s will download and install these updates automatically, adding new features overnight.
The 8c Studio cabinet is made of MDF (medium density fiberboard), the most
common material for loudspeaker cabinets. There is no acoustical or audible
difference between the two.
There are M10 fly points on the sides, and soon there will be a U bracket that is
compatible with hardware from various manufacturers like K&M, Manfrotto and
Doughty. The 8C Studio will not support Roon/streaming.
