Next-generation looks and performance from Swan's most affordable 2.0 system
Deriving its clean style and high value from Swan's proven models D1010MkII08 and D1080MkII08, the new fourth generation D1010 IV adds even more performance to Swan's newest and most affordable 2.0 channel desktop format. New and exclusively at The Audio Insider, the D1010 IV pushes performance desktop audio to a new low price.
Compact, easy to setup and use, and sounds great
Like the larger D1080MkII08, the Swan D1010 IV is a stereo 2.0 system with one active speaker containing both channels of stereo amplification and a slave speaker connected by a length of cable. Stereo line-level inputs connect the master speaker to any signal source from portable digital music source to gaming system to PC to CD or DVD player. The D1010 IV uses genuine 20mm soft dome tweeters for the fabulous high frequency performance Swan is known for, and includes 4" long-throw midwoofers with oversized shielded motors and critically-damped paper-hybrid cones for excellent midbass.
Full-featured and powerful
Volume, bass, and treble controls control level and tonal balance, and the system powers up with a simple linecord. Conservatively-rated internal "gainclone"-style chipset amplification has superior dynamic range, bandwidth, and musicality, and low distortion, high definition drivers means that the D1010 IV doesn't sound like any other $150 "multimedia" speaker. Hookup cables are included.
True 20mm / 3/4" soft dome tweeters for best sound
105mm / 4" midwoofers for excellent midrange and midbass performance
The D1010 IV is the latest in this popular series of Swan high value active desktop speakers. It's finished in black PVC over real wood construction and features a slot-loaded rear bass reflex port for surprisingly deep and powerful bass.
At well under $150 the pair, the D1010 IV is a huge value for enthusiasts wanting something dramatically better than usual PC sound but don't want to spend more. Drop a pair on your desktop and really enjoy the music.
Swan Active Desktop speaker technology
From the entry-level M10 to the top T200b studio monitor, the Swan name has been associated with top audio performance for desktop or studio, while The Audio Insider is known for providing great sound with Internet-direct value. Every Swan Active Desktop loudspeaker system incorporates the highest grade components, design, and value in their category. Count on Swan for a number of important design features that all add up to a superior listening experience...for less!
Acoustical physics simply state that a larger speaker has better efficiency and bass response. Dollar for dollar, Swan Active Desktop speakers are substantial, solid designs - check dimensions and weights to see just how much speaker your money buys...and then compare to anything on the market.
Regardless of price, all multi-way Swan Active Desktop speakers use high performance soft dome tweeters with Neodymium motors. The top T200b employs 28mm Danish-style tweeters with German-made silk domes, while the M200 series models and D1080 series models feature 25mm soft fabric tweeters. Even the economical M10 and D1010IV have 20mm soft dome tweeters. Every Swan speaker in the multi-way category shares similar high frequency treble performance to Swan's Diva home theater speaker offerings.
Midbass / Woofers
Excluding the Swan M10, D1010IV and all fullrange models such as the H2, nearly all Swan Active Desktop loudspeakers use beefy 5.25" woofers - unlike competitors, Swan doesn't use 3", 4", or even 4.5" "woofers" in anything except the very smallest models or in satellite speakers supported by bass systems. Combined with each multi-way model's larger size, you get deep, low-distortion bass, while the excellent sensitivity of a larger system means Swan can employ higher quality, conservatively rated internal amplifiers.
Swan uses very high quality amplifiers and on-board electronics to deliver the clean, clear, musical sound Swan owners have come to depend on. Remarkably, Swan has included renowned audiophile-grade "gainclone" chipset amplification in its powered models, a technology known around the world for some of the most transparent, musically-authentic sound possible ... even in the high end of premium performance home audio amplifiers. Swan is constantly refining their electronics sets so many models are in their second, third, or even fourth generation. See individual product pages in this section for more information and photographs.
Most of the models in the Swan Active Desktop class use substantial enclosures weighing much more than anything in their price class. The M200 series are double-side wall construction, while the top T200b uses a mill-cut aluminum baffle overlay on top of polished black lacquer. The M200MkIII even includes solid milled laminate side planks for a look and value unique in its class.
