Zerøs – Ultimate Passive Apartment Speakers

$2,995.00 Pair (USD)

The ultimate solution for apartments and smaller spaces
If you desire the ultimate in sound purity, impossibly clear mid-range, and jaw-dropping bass extension that is, in many aspects, unsurpassed by even the most premium of floor standing speakers, and especially if you are limited by space or budget, Zerø’s offer the ultimate solution at a fraction of the cost and size.

Engineered to produce the most beautiful sound you will ever experience, specifically in smaller spaces, Zerøs are not the loudest speakers on the market. If you ‘want overtly loud’ speakers the Zerø’s are not for you. However, if you covet unparalleled sound quality, beyond that of many loudspeakers priced in the tens and hundreds of thousands of dollars, from a speaker no taller than a wine glass look no further..

Zerøs – beautifully pure sound

World First

The acousticWing® accomplishes what no other single driver can, ZERO detectable energy storage over the widest bandwidths ever achieved.

Zero Acoustic Lobing

The extraordinarily low crossover frequency means acoustic lobbing is eliminated.

Heavy Metal In Miniature

Each Zerø weighs a rock solid 7.5kg, yet stands only 230mm tall.

Pure Emotion

A completely new way to generate sound, the acousticWing® delivers an emotional connection beyond anything experienced before.

Extraordinary Crossover

Extraordinarily low crossover frequency (570Hz) for superbly integrated sound.

Insanely Low Bass

Market-leading bass extension from the 3” subwoofer (-6dB @ 40Hz) that belies the Zero’s compact size.

Exceptional Sweet Spot

The most expansive sweet spot of any two-way speaker.

Exceptional Sweet Spot

The most expansive sweet spot of any two-way speaker.

Exceptionally wide sweet spot

The sweet spot, also known as the directivity field, is the listening area where you experience the best sound from your speakers. In conventional shelf speakers, this is often of significant disappointment for audio reviewers who recurrently warn of “very small sweet spots, requiring careful positioning”.

The sweet spot for the Wing Zerøs is extraordinarily wide throughout the mid-treble range, preserving colour, tonality, depth and scale. The unusually low crossover frequency means that the subwoofer only operates at frequencies where it is minimally directional. Even at a distance and well off axis, as listeners move around a room, sound-staging is exceptional.

Revolutionary pure Wing

The revolutionary acousticWing® mimics the action of a humming bird wing in flight.

Unlike distortion-prone cone loudspeaker drivers, the acousticWing® has NO flexible diaphragm, NO rubbery surround, and NO unstable piston action. Uncontrollable shaking (resonance-distortion) inherent in conventional loudspeakers, that pollutes and shrouds your music, is eliminated resulting in a purity of sound beyond anything experienced.

Market-leading bass, incredibly low crossover

The Wing Zerøs achieve an extraordinarily low crossover frequency of 570 Hz, made possible through the extraordinarily wide bandwidth of the acousticWing® driver. This so-low crossover frequency, combined with the acousticWing’s unparalleled mid-range and treble performance from a single driver, delivers superbly integrated sound.

Additionally, since the 3” subwoofer is relieved of the job of having to attempt sub-par mid-range reproduction, performance can be tailored toward delivery of market-leading bass extension (-6dB @ 40Hz) that belies the speaker’s exceptionally compact size.

Free From Acoustic Lobing

Lobing refers to possible interference of sound waves radiating from multiple sources, leading to a potentially irregular off-axis response that can colour audio reproduction.With conventional speakers, at certain listening positions frequencies in the crossover region can be completely cancelled.

The incredibly low crossover frequency achieved in the Wing Zerø aprtment speakers means that acoustic lobbing is eliminated, preserving pristine tonality across a wide range of listening positions.

Iron-free driver

The acousticWing® is an iron-free loudspeaker driver. Consisting of a radically simplified motor design featuring a single moving magnet, stationary heat-sinked coil and ZERO iron pole pieces, the acousticWing® eliminates non-linearity associated with pole piece hysteresis – a significant cause of distortion in conventional loudspeakers.

Iron-free crossover

The crossover developed for the Zerø mini passive apartment speakers is iron-free. Maintaining a completely iron-free path, after the amplifier, eliminates nonlinearity associated with inductor saturation – a cause of distortion in conventional loudspeakers.

Obsessive Acoustic Optimisation

The degree of resonance management inherent in Wing’s Zerø enclosures borders on obsessive and is beyond that of many speakers priced in the tens of thousands of dollars. Dual enclosures to contain treble and mid-range resonance, an anechoic chamber and comprehensive deployment of damping and decoupling systems serves to micro-manage potential sources of resonance that can be a significant cause of sound colouration in conventional speakers.

Beautiful Heavy Metal

Featuring a stunning design aesthetic, the Zerøs are the ultimate in form and acoustic function – 7mm thick aluminum outer walls finished in premium anodising for exceptional beauty and durability.

Also impressive is the weight for such compact speakers (7.5kg each) yet the Zerøs stand only 230mm tall. Stunning shape and exceptional detailing on the surface, serious materials and meticulous engineering, that underpins Wing sound purity, under the grille. A strong piece of industrial design.

Bi-Wiring

Bi-wiring option and premium gold plating on binding posts complete the package.
