The most popular, longest running premium studio monitor
The second-generation personal reference monitor is here. The Swan M200MkII is an upgraded version of the classic Swan M200 that took desktops by storm the world over over a decade ago. Already equipped with a very successful format and driver set, the M200MkII now comes with superior on-board electronics and bigger amplifiers that raise compact active loudspeaker sound and value to a new level.
Whopping twenty-five pound studio monitors priced for multimedia
This is the unbeatable value in premium desktop performance, and one of the best values in self-powered sound anywhere. Connect nearly any line-level signal source from personal portable audio device to computer to audio system to video display and enjoy remarkably transparent audio performance.
The M200MkII is all about value
The original Swan M200 was the first studio monitor-class loudspeaker with the multimedia-class price. Hundreds of thousands of these desktop wonders proved what happens when a pair of great drivers and tuned enclosures meet a capable amplifier and the whole package connects to the PC, the CD player, or the personal music device. Anywhere you've got a signal source, the M200 made real music - it was not a "multimedia" speaker, but rather a real monitor at the multimedia price facilitated by Intenet-direct availability.
Go way beyond ... for less
Today's M200MkII upgrades the M200's performance and specifications envelop with vastly improved amplification and electronics in a more rugged and longer lasting package. The M200MkII is real quality and sound ... it's the refined result of literally years of development and more units in the field than some manufacturers can or will build in their lifetimes. This is the desktop monitor platform to beat ... and so far none have.
For sparking, extended highs, the M200MkII uses 25mm soft dome tweeters. Shielded 5.25" poly-cone midwoofers contribute solid bass and low-distortion midrange
A massive torroidal transformer powers the M200MkII's onboard amplifiers
The new M200MkII restarted the M200 craze. As good as the original M200 was, it's even better with new, more powerful onboard electronics for much better fidelity from audiophile approved components. As always, solid, double-thickness cabinetry means well-defined sound and lasting value.

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.
