How Do You Improve on Success?
A year ago we set out to redesign the already successful Swans Diva series. The first thing we did was to talk to our customers, especially women. What we found was they liked the existing Swans Diva speaker but wanted something that was even sleeker, more graceful, but most importantly, it should blend in with their existing furniture.
Introducing the new Swans Classic series!
The shape has changed, the drivers have changed and the sound is better than ever. The tweeter now gently blends into the top. Positioning the tweeter on top of the speaker gives more of a sense of air to the sound. The sleeker shape gives a better and smoother response.
The finish of the cabinets are exquisite in their simplicity. Both the bottom and top cap are finished in a piano black lacquer. The side panels are substantially braced within and have a graceful, curving front to back profile. Outside they're clad in a rich dark veneer covered in multiple coats of clear piano lacquer hand polished to a deep luxurious finish.
A distinguishing element of many Swans speakers is the externally mounted wide-band dome tweeter, which improves the sense of spaciousness in music playback. Further refining this excellent treble performance is the 1" 28mm dome's special high energy neodymium motor with integral rear decompression chamber and ferrofluid cooling, engineer speak for an output that's broader, smoother, and more powerful than you get from any conventional tweeter.
For high power theatre sound, Swans designers selected their finest 5" midrange with characteristics perfect for the Classical series. The combination of the Swan dome tweeter technology and robust extended range midrange performance add up to a very clean and powerful vocal sonic profile.
Swan designers completed the new Swan Classical main speakers with a tandem pair of woofers. Listeners are typically surprised by the abundance of clean, articulate bass produced by this classical design, which is testament to the effectiveness of Swan extensive in house program of advanced driver optimisation: Swan simply knows how to wring every ounce of output from each and every driver they make.
The Swans Classical series uses 3 different size woofers, 5", 6.5", and 8" respectively for Swans 4.2 F, 5.2F, 6.2F main speakers, each one suited to be used in different environments.
The matching Swans 4.2R surround speaker and Swans 4.2C centre speaker assume the same features of the Swans Classic main speakers. The Swans 4.2C centre speaker uses two 5" midrange woofers flanking a centrally mounted 28mm soft dome tweeter.
Also the matching Swans 4.2C centre speaker incorporates identical multi-driver technology, creating a seamless front stage image for high performance theatre playback. The sound from the combination of driver units in the Swans 4.2C is exceptional: The two 5" woofers on either side of this array lend an authoritative tone to the male voice, and the midrange and tweeter duplicate the excellent dispersion found in the main speakers.
The Swans 4.2R surround speakers are a work of art. Sculptured from the same low resonance MDF acoustic board stock used in the other Swans cabinets, they're a true bipole design and are most effective at creating a convincing ambient surround environment. Dual Swans dome tweeters complete this high resolution duo. They use two 5" and two 28mm soft dome tweeters configured to a top quality bipole 2 way sealed box surround system for the best ambient sound field energy and enveloping rear sound effects.
Not only does the Swans Classic have a new shape, the sound is equally impressive. The driver technology used provides an incredible natural tonality to voices and music. Testing was done in our newly completed anechoic chamber. The results are highly impressive.
The Swans Classic comes in three different models, the 6.2HT, the 5.2HT and the 4.2HT and is guaranteed to please. This is one impressive speaker that everyone will love.
