Incline, a pair of selfpowered loudspeakers with USB Digital Analog Signal
Conversion, transforms the space around your desktop computer into a rich listening environment. Incline has been optimized for use on desktops, shelves and credenzas using a unique form factor that enhances sound quality while complementing the appearance of today’s desktop monitors and laptop computers.
The 9.5 Degree Solution
Desktop speakers often sound dull, lifeless and flat. Incline’s 9.5 degree angle literally points the speaker toward your ears, aiding directivity and making it possible for you
to hear full bandwidth. Vocals are more intelligible and music and movie soundtracks sound utterly lifelike.
Incline’s unique form factor was just the beginning, however. Built-in amplifiers,
digital signal processing and a bipolar speaker configuration take desktop audio to a new performance standard.
Bipolar Speaker Design. Full Bandwidth, High Definition Sound.
Incline’s bipolar configuration radiate sound in an omnidirectional pattern. Front facing drivers include a one 4-inch polymer cone mid/woofer that is pressure-coupled to a 4-inch bass radiator; there is also a ¾-inch silk dome tweeter. A rear facing full-range driver creates a spacious soundscape far beyond the confines of your desktop. Your listening experience is more life-like, more involving for music and movies. Four 20-Watt amplifiers (each speaker is bi-amplified) power the system for effortless high volume, low distortion clarity.
For higher output and more bass, you can add an optional external powered subwoofer to the Incline via a rear panel Sub Out jack. And Incline can be connected to any audio source that has a digital optical, USB or headphone output jack.
Definitive Fit and Finish.
Definitive Technology is renowned for its uncompromising fit and finish, and the Incline's details include a striking support-base made from a solid slab of machined aluminum to provide stability. The enclosure is fabricated with Definitive’s trademark Polystone mineral-filled polymer, and wrapped in acoustically transparent grille cloth.
“Definitive Technology have completely re-designed the desktop speaker with the Incline, introducing a number of features that are not usually seen in desktop audio. I was pleased to get the opportunity to review the Incline to see if they look and sound as good in real-life as they do on paper.”
