Skjult bag Kii's skønhed er en fantastisk højttaler, der er lille nok til let at passe ind i moderne opholdsrum og tilstrækkelig stor til at fylde de største rum. Med intelligens og et aktivt højttalersystem, går man skridtet videre end hvad man forventer af kompakte højttalere. Leveres med Kii Control som omdanner højttalerne til et komplet system til afspilning i den højeste lydkvalitet. Kan udbygges med et BXT-modul.
The Secret of Big Speakers
Kii’s mission for the THREE was to break the sonic mould of compact speakers. Powerful small speakers with deep bass have been around for a while now but none so far sounded like a big speaker. The THREE is built to fix that.
Basic acoustics tells us that a classic box speaker only directs sound towards the listeners from the midrange up while bass frequencies are radiated all around. The frequency where this change happens depends on the size of the box front (the “baffle”). The smaller the baffle, the higher the frequency at which bass is still radiated all around instead of directed towards the listener.
That in short is why big speakers have so far delivered much more precise timing and detail in the bass and low mids than small speakers: the room gets less chance to interfere. And that is what Kii has now managed to make a compact speaker do.
Jacob Collier talks about his Kii THREEs
Jacob Collier is a two-time GRAMMY award-winning singer, composer, arranger, producer and multi-instrumentalist, based in London, England. Dubbed by many as one of the most innovative creative musicians of his generation, Jacob first rose to popularity through the virality of his homemade multi-track YouTube videos. In these, Jacob re-creates well-known songs, layering multiple voices and instruments on top of one another, and visualizes these with a multi-Jacob mosaic split-screen layout. Collier's musical style fuses elements of jazz, a cappella, groove, folk, electronic music, classical music, gospel, soul and improvisation, and often features extreme use of re-harmonization. Since his inaugural video in 2011, Jacob’s online social channels have garnered over 300K international followers and more than 13 million YouTube views. His viral hits, such as his rendition of Stevie Wonder’s “Don’t You Worry ‘Bout A Thing”, also made him popular among the Jazz community. Some legendary fans include Quincy Jones, Herbie Hancock, Pat Metheny, Chick Corea, and Take 6, to name a few.
Kii THREE System
The Kii CONTROL turns the Kii THREE into a complete playback system of highest sonic quality and usability. It offers a user interface for your speakers and works like a digital preamplifier.
Only connect your analog source, CD player/drive, server, streamer, TV set or set top box to enjoy a breathtakingly audiophile full range system in a stunningly small footprint.
The Kii CONTROL offers three additional digital inputs for the Kii THREE: Coax SPDIF, Optical TOSLINK and USB (up to PCM 24/384kHz and DSD64/DSD128 on USB).
Digital Preamp and USB Interface with lossless volume control
All inputs are located on the backside connector panel and can be activated with the touch buttons located around the volume knob. A dedicated input button (labeled XLR) will switch to the existing hardware input on the speaker itself, which you can continue to use as analog or digital input. The Kii Control connects with a single included CAT6 cable and is also powered through this connection. No additional power supply is necessary.Most importantly the Kii CONTROL enables lossless volume control inside the DSP of the Kii THREEs, keeping the signal path of the system as transparent as possible.The big volume knob also offers mute or dim functions and manual power on/off (standby). A dedicated touch button provides direct access to up to six user definable presets.The menu navigation and OLED display vastly expand the options of the Boundary and Contour settings, while also providing access to more advanced system settings, including amongst others for example manual power on/standby, LED brightness, DIM function and limiter indication.The main functions like volume, source and mute can be remote controlled via your IR Remote (RC5 type or Apple Remote).
