totaldac fans and followers already know that Vincent Brient makes complete systems — from streamers to DACs to preamps to amps to speakers. The new d100 are a more room- and wallet-friendly affair as compared to the company’s d150-anniversary speaker.
The d100 speakers offer higher than typical sensitivity at 98dB (@ 1m @ 2.83V) and coax a claimed in-room 35Hz-20KHz frequency response from their 2.5 way design. Two 12″ drivers take on bass responsibilities but only one also carries the midrange as well. A ‘non-metal’ horn loaded dome tweeter takes care of the rest.
Make sure to check out the totaldac YouTube channel for and listen into the totaldac auditorium.
The first batch of d100s is in production now for delivery in Spring 2021. Pre-orders are available now.
