Encore! The upgraded, third-generation, limited-edition companion to the Swan M200MkII is here and it sounds incredible. Look for improved bass, twice the power, cleaner sound, and Swan's finest M200 series cabinet joinery yet.
Top Swan sound in a premium, limited edition product
A decade ago Swan launched what's now become one of the most popular powered speaker series ever. The M200 was a premium, affordable desktop monitor series that evolved into the more powerful and reliable M200MkII. On this platform Swan have engineered a high performance, high value product series, each iteration of which delivered excellent value.
Today it includes the award-winning M200MkIII, the third and most advanced M200.

Cleaner, louder sound
The M200MkIII Swan studio monitor has more than doubled power for the most sound and lowest distortion yet. Swan have completely revised the on-board electronics for a whopping 120 combined RMS system watts, which when driving a speaker as naturally sensitive as the amply-sized, 5.25"-woofered M200MkII, means real room-filling output - remember, the M200 series isn't the tiny multimedia speaker its competition is. The M200 series are large enough to be used as main speakers for nearly anything requiring great sound from a small-footprint loudspeaker.
25mm soft dome tweeters
135mm polycone midwoofers
More neutral and extended than some speakers costing far more
For the M200MkIII, Swan also re-tuned the bass section with an optimized new low-noise porting system and in the process added even lower deep bass than any previous version M200. Swan's new specification calls out nearly 50Hz bass at "reference" levels, for a flat response spanning nearly eight octaves from a speaker measuring under a foot tall and costing well under five hundred dollars.
Side panels are milled from striped solid hardwood.
The M200MkIII's new amplifiers bi-amplify each speaker of the pair. Each driver has its own amplifier.
Furniture-grade features and finishes
Lastly, to unmistakably trademark all this new technology and enhanced performance Swan upgraded the new M200MkIII with solid milled side panels, each precision cut by computer with gently radiused edge details and center striping between individual laminations. The result is breathtaking. The M200MkIII not only redefines the category acoustically, it does so cosmetically.
Designed by Swan's founder Frank Hale, each high-performance M200MkIII set is badged and serial-numbered
Swan have thoroughly upgraded the M200MkII. The Swan M200MkIII keeps the classic M200 form factor and profile, but adds polished solid hardwood side panels, improved bass tuning, and much more power. The M200MkIII is actually much closer in performance to the top-of-the-line Swan T200b and T200c than it is the original M200.
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.
