The Definitive Technology Demand Increases

Announced today at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Definitive Technology has expanded its Demand series with the addition of floor standing speakers and a centre channel.

The Demand D15 ($1,699 RRP each) and Demand D17 ($2,299 RRP each) floorstanders, along with the D5C ($799 RRP each) centre channel complement the existing three models of stand-mount speakers in the Demand series. Just like their siblings, they employ  advanced materials including carbon fibre woofers and annealed aluminium tweeters to deliver what the company says is “unrivalled room-filling sound, smooth high-frequency reproduction and precise imaging for a superior listening experience.”

Michael Greco, category director Loudspeakers at Sound United, said:

We maintained the same level of craftsmanship and material quality in designing and developing the line. Listeners will see familiar technologies, including the 20/20 Wave Alignment Lens™, BDSS and Linear Response Waveguide. However, we also added newly designed dual carbon fiber bass drivers and dual side-firing passive radiators to the towers, which deliver some of the smoothest, most accurate and rich reproduction of any tower on the market in its price range. The center channel is the perfect addition to the line for home theater aficionados.

The new additions feature the same clean, modern look with a substantial bead-blasted aluminium baffle, aesthetically matching the existing models. Def Tech says “each cabinet is meticulously sanded, painted with five layers of premium gloss paint and buffed to a near-mirror (Level 6) finish, resulting in a harmony of understated sophistication and uncompromising quality.”

The three models also come in both Piano Black and White finish in line with the Demand Series and will be available in Australia early this year. 

The announcement comes as the brand moves to Melbourne-based Westan for distribution in Australia.
