About Aktimate Micro - Red by Aktimate Speakers:
As the name suggests, this is the smallest speaker in the range, but certainly not lacking in dynamics! Nor is it tiny - it measures 145 x 200 x 240 mm.
Similar in design to its two larger siblings, it continues to feature the elegant concealed AktiMate dock in the top of the cabinet. This model has just two other inputs - a 3.5mm jack plus USB. Unlike the other two models, the USB connection in this speaker is designed for direct connection to a PC. A DAC has been incorporated which operates with the USB input.
We have chosen to use a Class D amplifier in the active speaker which puts out a very healthy 40 Watts!
There are a few other notable areas of change. We see the AktiMate Micro as a serious hi-fi desktop
speaker and for that reason we do not have any IR control. We also do not have a standby feature in this model - it is turned on and off from a switch on the rear panel. When on, a blue LED lights above the volume control on the right hand side at the front.
There is a matching control button on the left front which is an input selector. It is a three step switch moving from iPod to 3.5mm jack to USB. Out of the box the default position is iPod.
Both the woofer and tweeter are new designs. The tweeter is based on the new Epos Epic loudspeaker
range and the Kevlar woofer has been cloned from the AktiMate Mini.
