McIntosh makes scaled down version of flagship XRT1.1K speaker
McIntosh has announced a new speaker, the XRT1.1K, a scaled-down version of the company’s flagship nanocarbon technology XRT2.1K, designed to maintain the quality of its bigger sibling while offering something “smaller, lighter and easier to place in the home.”
As well as offering a 78Kg lighter and 35cm shorter unit, the new XRT1.1 also comes in at considerably less cost than the XRT2.1K (£59.995, compared to £137,500.)
A multi-driver design, the XRT1.1K uses a total of 70 individual drivers consisting of four bass drivers, two low-frequency mid-range drivers, plus 24 upper frequency mid-range drivers and 40 tweeters. The bass driver and low-frequency midrange driver technology from the XRT2.1K has been directly incorporated into the XRT1.1K, with the high-performance drivers housed in their own dedicated bass enclosure cabinet, located behind the line array.
The McIntosh XRT1.1K is distributed in the UK by Jordan Acoustics, and is available now.
