The AcouLab Première S loudspeaker is now available in some European countries. The digital gadget is compact, measuring 400 x 220 x 350 mm (~15.7 x 8.7 x 13.8-in). Fully active architecture and motional feedback technology help the speaker to produce up to 25 Hz at -3 dB with minimal distortion, despite its smaller size.

The AcouLab Première S servo-controlled loudspeaker has been launched. The gadget measures 400 x 220 x 350 mm (~15.7 x 8.7 x 13.8-in) and weighs 13.5 kg (~29.8 lbs). That makes it smaller than many other speakers on the market with a similar sound quality; AcouLab claims that the loudspeaker can deliver up to 25 Hz at -3 dB with minimal distortion.

The compact device has fully active architecture to deliver a high-quality audio experience, thanks to digital signal processing and AcouLab’s motional feedback technology. The feedback system uses an inductive sensor below the 7-in woofer to reduce distortion. 7-in Air motion transformer tweeters produce “live-like dynamics” and clarity in the midrange, and each driver is powered by a 250 W Hypex Ncore Class D amplifier.

A Dual ESS 9038Q2M DAC and AKM AK 5572 ADC are used for signal conversion. You can connect the Première S to other speakers to create the sound system of your choice using AcouLink, with a range of analog and digital inputs. Automatic signal detections mean you do not have to manually turn on the speaker, with a Trigger input allowing your pre-amp to manage the device’s power state.

You can buy the AcouLab Première S loudspeaker in Europe for €4,699 (~US$4,817) in piano black or matte white. The company ships to countries including the Netherlands, France and Italy. It is unclear whether or when the speaker could be launched in other markets.
