In the new Model XL Wireless, Geneva has turned the trend for tiny on its head, applying the limit of its award-winning design formula to deliver true audiophile performance in an all-in-one system. Equipped with high quality aptX Bluetooth streaming, DAB/DAB+/FM radio and CD, Geneva’s latest XL model will upscale all of today’s music sources effortlessly, generating a wide, flawless frequency range for music lovers and style gurus, even in the largest rooms. Above all, the newest XL remains a thoroughbred Geneva design. Beautifully contoured in the Geneva range of red, black and white piano-lacquered finishes, it has the looks to complement any interior - especially when mounted to its optional brushed aluminum stand - and it’s as satisfying to use through cabinet-top controls or from the slender remote control provided.
Within the new XL’s lacquered real wood enclosure an expertly configured audio system generates gloriously detailed full-frequency stereo sound from no fewer than six high quality speakers housed in four discrete acoustic chambers, and custom powered by dedicated DSP controlled amplifiers, each tailored to optimize driver response. Its unmatched audio fire-power will energise music files, Internet radio and on-line libraries through superior wire-free Bluetooth aptX streaming from the widest range of compatible computers, tablets and smartphones. Experience DAB/DAB+ or FM radio with greater fidelity, or re-visit CD collections though a top-loading player. What’s more, the one-touch selection of source, radio presets, navigation and level make operation a simple pleasure. Add external sources through RCA inputs or TVs, AirPort Xpress and Sonos through an auto sensing stereo mini-jack.
Impressively proportioned to catch the eye and acoustically provisioned to bring genuine scale and lifelike dynamics to every popular music source, the new Geneva Model XL offers a compelling mix of design luxury, wire-free functionality and sound quality all-in-one.
