The D1010 IV is Swan's affordable desktop 2.0 speaker system. This model includes better grade components like genuine soft dome tweeters, quality 4" midwoofers, and Swan's onboard gainclone-style chipset electronics.
Next-generation looks and performance from Swan's most affordable 2.0 system
With a new clean style,the fourth generation D1010IV raises performance in Swan's most affordable 2.0 channel desktop format.
Compact, easy to setup and use, and sounds great
Like the larger D1080, the Swan D1010IV 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 line cord. Conservatively-rated internal "gainclone"-style monolithic 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.
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.
About The Technology
From the entry-level H2 to the top T200c studio monitor, the Swan name has been associated with top audio performance for desktop or studio for years. Every Swan multimedia system incorporates high grade components, design, and value. Count on Swan for a number of important design features that all add up to a superior listening experience...for less!
Acoustic laws state that a larger speaker has better efficiency and bass response. Dollar for dollar, Swan multimedia 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 multimedia systems use high performance soft dome tweeters with Neodymium motors. The top T200c 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 D1010 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 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. The excellent sensitivity of a larger system also means Swan can employ higher quality, conservatively rated internal amplifiers.
Swan uses high quality amplifiers and on-board electronics to deliver the clean, clear, musical sound Swan owners have come to depend on. Swan has included renowned, audiophile-grade "gainclone" chipset amplification in its powered models, a technology known transparent, musically-authentic sound, even in the high end of premium home audio amplifiers.
Swan multimedia systems use substantial wood product enclosures weighing more than anything in their price class. The M200 series are double-side wall construction, while the top T200c 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.
