SA-Z1 / Near Field Powered Speaker System


Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

These Signature Series powered speakers bring supreme resolution and the audio realism of front row concert seats to your personal spaces. The input (amplifier part) and output (speaker part) are structurally separate, but the overall flow from input to output is designed as an expression of a single integrated soul. I-ARRAY tweeters are distinctly positioned as the face on the front side of each speaker, with sound and form tightly woven together in an overall design that focuses on the pointed corners for a raw, organic appearance.
