X-Mini launches new UNO and MAX series based on high quality ceramic tweeter
Singapore, October 2012 – Following the successful launch of the X-mini KAI Capsule SpeakerTM which picked up both the red dot design and iF design awards, Xmi Pte Ltd headed back to the basics to improve on its basic Capsule SpeakerTM models. The latest products from Xmi Pte Ltd, the new mono speaker UNO represents the upgraded standard of portable sound. Featuring an important change that significantly improves sound quality, there have also been improvements made in several of the other outstanding features of the X-miniTM Capsule SpeakerTM series.
The UNO offers a new standard in portable speakers with the introduction of the ceramic tweeter. The quality of sound produced from any speaker depends largely on the tweeter material and after months of research, trials and prototype development, the engineering team at Xmi Pte Ltd found that ceramic was the most suitable material to bring the X-miniT sound to the next level.
The ceramic tweeter brings about several advantages. As compared to aluminum tweeters, the ceramic ones can produce a wider frequency range covering higher and lower sounds. As a result of that, the distortion of sound is also much reduced because the ceramic tweeter is able to withstand high and low frequencies without producing any cracks in the sound.
When a speaker plays low frequency sound, it is difficult to maintain the depth and intensity of the bass produced. A tweeter that does not have a high enough efficiency will not be able to support a strong bass, resulting in soft and clouded music that lacks intensity. The ceramic tweeter is able to is able to produce clear and bright sounds precisely because it is capable of a highly efficient output even at low frequencies.
At each frequency point, the ceramic tweeter is able to perform better hence producing great clarity in sound even when various frequencies are mixed together in one song. With the ceramic tweeter in the UNO, details in music such as the voice of a singer and the sound of each instrument will be cleaner and clearer.
The X-miniTM Capsule SpeakersTM are known to be able to last for hours and this will be no exception with the new UNO. In fact, the battery life of the UNO has been improved to last up to 20 hours with each charge. The built-in Lithium-ion batteries are charged via USB for about two to three hours. With the micro USB ports being more popular now, the charging port of
the UNO has also been updated which means that users will be able to recharge their product with the same cables they charge many of their devices with.
WEIGHTED BASE FOR THE UNO
The X-miniTM Capsule SpeakersTM are known to produce a bass performance beyond what is expected of its size! With the strong bass production from the X-miniTM Capsule SpeakersTM, it is a common sight to see them bouncing around when playing bass-heavy tunes. Even though many people have been amused at the sight of the X-miniTM Capsule SpeakerTM bouncing around, a new feature on the UNO is that a weight has been added to the base so that it will stay in place while you enjoy the bass lines of your favourite tunes.

The UNO will come in a sleek gunmetal colour which is brand new to the X-miniTM Capsule SpeakerTM range. With a snazzy selection of six colours which include the gunmetal and also favourites like blue, green, orange, purple and red, you can spice up your sound according to your favourite colour!
