Now in their second generation, for over ten years Swan's M200 series has been pleasing audiophiles from the desktop or video display stand or in the studio. The M200MkII's big 5.25" woofers and 1" soft dome tweeters go way beyond what's expected for the money.
The most popular, longest running premium desktop monitor
The Swan M200MkII is an upgraded version of the classic Swan M200 that took desktops by storm the world over over a decade ago. Already equipped with a very successful format and driver set, the M200MkII comes with superior on-board electronics and bigger amplifiers that raise compact active loudspeaker sound and value to a new level.
Twenty-five pound studio monitors priced for multimedia
This is the unbeatable value in premium desktop performance, and one of the best values in self-powered sound anywhere. Connect nearly any line-level signal source from personal portable audio device to computer to audio system to video display and enjoy remarkably transparent audio performance.
Shielded 5.25" poly-cone midwoofers contribute solid bass and low-distortion midrange
For sparking, extended highs, the M200MkII uses 25mm soft dome tweeters.
Today's M200MkII upgrades the original M200's performance and specifications envelop with better amplification and electronics in a more rugged and longer lasting package. The M200MkII is real quality and sound ... it's the refined result of literally years of development and more units in the field than some manufacturers will ever build.
The M200MkII is all about value
The original Swan M200 was the first studio monitor-class loudspeaker with the multimedia-class price. Thousands of these desktop wonders proved what happens when a pair of great drivers and tuned enclosures meet a capable amplifier and the whole package connects to the PC, the CD player, or the personal music device. Anywhere you've got a signal source, the M200 makes real 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.
