The following is a press release issued by Audioengine.
AUSTIN, Texas | September 9, 2016 - Audioengine® introduces the HDP6 Premium Passive Speakers. Based on the same look and style as the award-winning HD6 powered speakers, the HDP6 gives our customers the flexibility to use their favorite components to power these high performance passive bookshelf loudspeakers.
"The HD6 powered speakers are the flagship of our recently-released HD Series, and we felt many customers would appreciate a passive speaker with the same great sound and look so we created the HDP6" says Dave Evans, Audioengine co-founder.
Serious Sound in a Small, Beautiful Package
Bookshelf speakers offer the flexibility to place them in tight spaces but they typically don't have the same big sound as floorstanding designs. But not so with HDP6 as customers will be delighted to hear that they project a soundstage usually found in much larger and more expensive speakers. Beautiful and small, they can be placed in an out-of-the-way nook anywhere in your home or office and can also be mounted on a wall or ceiling. But regardless of where they're placed, their performance will impress as they tastefully fit with almost any decor.
Brady Bargenquast, Audioengine co-founder added, "The HDP6 are a solid-performer and an attractive value in their price range. And with identical audio specs as the powered HD6, the new P6's are happily driven by just about any amplifier, stereo system or surround-sound setup."
Proprietary Audioengine 5.5 inch woofers are built on solid aluminum frames. Their advanced Kevlar cones and butyl rubber surrounds are designed to dissipate unwanted resonances.
Ferrofluid-cooled silk dome tweeters driven with neodymium magnets hold up well under high power and give a smooth response thanks to their edge-driven design.
Cabinets of 20mm thick MDF and rigid bracing ensure proper stiffness and mass to clearly and accurately reproduce sound without creating parasitic resonances.
Beautiful furniture-grade hardwood veneer finishes with sleek aluminum trim accents are available in Walnut and Cherry. And for a look that blends more deeply into the background, choose our custom Satin Black automotive finish. Stylish grills also magnetically attach to protect the drivers without affecting the sound.
Slotted rear bass ports eliminate wave turbulence and easily transitions low frequency energy from the speaker cabinets into your room. With this design HDP6 delivers smooth, natural and surprisingly deep bass.
Pricing and availability
Audioengine HDP6 Premium Passive Speakers have a retail price of $499 per pair. HDP6 is available now and can be purchased from over 400 authorized worldwide resellers or on line direct.
