High-Performance Desktop Speaker
The NuForce Icon S-X is a high-performance desktop loudspeaker designed to partner with NuForce Icon desktop integrated amplifiers and other components.
The S-X complements your lifestyle and flatters your good taste. Its versatile shape offers a range of placement options. Whether you position it upright, on its side, or mounted on a wall upright or inverted, the S-X produces a wide, musically compelling soundstage. On your desk or elsewhere in your work area, the S-X permits you to move about without experiencing the loss of image or fidelity most desktop speakers exhibit.
Performance Way Above Its Price Point
Designed with NuForce's Icon series of desktop components in mind, the S-X delivers a level of performance that rivals loudspeakers several times its price. The speaker's proprietary driver employs an extremely thin paper cone for excellent transients and lifelike musical timbres. Add to this are a die-cast basket, vented voice coil and powerful Neodymium motor structure for a level of bass performance, high frequency extension, linearity, and power handling capability that belie the S-X's size.
An RJ-45 connector and Cat-5 cable are provided for connection to an Icon or other device.
More Than Just a Pretty Face
The S-X is a whole lot more than another pretty face. The speaker's angled front panel contributes its remarkable performance. The S-X's profile optimizes dispersion, thus providing as wide a soundstage as possible. Working in harmony with this, the integral waveguide further optimizes dispersion as it minimizes distortion in the critical midrange region. Finally, the S-X's design eliminates any possibility of the midrange distortion so common to systems that employ a crossover in this critical frequency band.
The S-X is available with aluminum side panels in four colors to coordinate with the NuForce Icon.
The NuForce S-X and S-1
The S-X is of the same heritage as the acclaimed original NuForce S-1 speaker and gleans much of it's technological advantage from similar design principles. Each has been optimized for its own unique set of applications. The S-1 was primarily intended for use by the hi-end enthusiast looking for the greatest possible desktop/computer audio experience. In contrast, the S-X retains much of the same performance of the S-1 but is optimized for broader placement options and a wider listening area.
Both the S-1 and S-X offer acceptable bass performance for many users, yet benefit from the addition of a subwoofer if deeper, more powerful bass is desired. For those applications the NuForce W-1 subwoofer is the ideal choice as it was designed to be the perfect complement for both.
