Hercules Debuts XPS 2.0 80 DJ MONITOR:
Its First Monitoring Speaker System for DJs


High-end precision speakers and components designed for DJs offer quality sound restitution for perfecting any mix

New York, NY – (September 27, 2011) –  Hercules, a leader and pioneer in digital DJ controllers and a digital  audio specialist, is pleased to debut its first monitoring speaker  system for DJs. Relying on 20 years of audio expertise, Hercules has  created this active monitoring speaker system to be a natural and  logical evolution into its DJing product range which was previously  comprised of only DJ controllers.

No art without preparation

Because  a successful performance depends on a careful mix preparation,  monitoring speakers are an essential item in any DJ's personal studio –  for beginners, amateurs and expert DJs alike.

To this end, the Hercules XPS 2.0 80 DJ Monitor speaker  system offers precise sound restitution, enabling DJs to become aware  of every detail in their sound and to hone their mix to perfection.

Precise design

The XPS 2.0 80 DJ Monitor speaker  system was developed with the assistance of Hercules' specialized DJing  teams, and has been subjected to in-depth testing by Hercules' audio  engineers. All have worked with high-end materials and components to  deliver the precise, homogenous and quality sound that DJs demand.

The XPS 2.0 80 DJ Monitor speaker  system comprises 2 compact wooden satellites, designed to reduce  clutter in your home studio. The front face's curvature has been  calculated to ensure a clear and balanced sound flow. Each satellite  features a silk-dome tweeter, for sharp and pure treble. At the center  of each satellite, a 4-inch woofer with a Kevlar diaphragm – a material  offering consistent performance, that is less subject to deformation  than other materials – delivers ample and homogenous medium and bass  sounds.

Finally, the XPS 2.0 80 DJ Monitor satellites'  front face features a dual port system, often required by DJs to  receive and assess all the bass frequencies in their creations.

Perfected ergonomics

Offering simple control over advanced features, the XPS 2.0 80 DJ Monitor speaker system features user-friendly front-mounted buttons that allow  DJs to adjust the general volume, as well as bass and treble levels.

The  system offers ample connectivity options, enabling them to connect  their computer, DJing equipment, mixing device, MP3 player, game console  or any other audio source:
-    One RCA input (for the main source)
-    One balanced TRS input (6.35 mm)
-    One line input
-    One headphones output (speakers are automatically deactivated when headphones are connected)

Satellite measurements: 10.8 x 7.5 x 7 inches
Right satellite weight: 9.3lbs / Left satellite weight: 6.3lbs
Total power output: 40 W
Peak power: 80 W 
Compatible with Windows® 7, XP, Vista, Mac®, DVD/CD players, MP3 players, TVs, game consoles

                     
The Hercules XPS 2.0 80 DJ Monitor will be available late October 2011, at the suggested retail price of $169.99.
