Studio Oslo is the perfect speaker for any computer due to small size, ability to listen from small distance, excellent sound and easy of connection via phones socket:
Studio Oslo for TV set:
After further studies and upgrades it was possible to accommodate them to bigger listening places, even up to 30 square meters.
The contemporary TV sets are very tin. So, it is no place to install any serious speaker inside. For larger rooms the company subwoofer is recommended. For smaller spaces, like bedroom, a single pair is absolutely enough to fill the room by sound. Due to exceptional dynamics, space and focusing, a pair of Oslo speakers can make a true spatial sound, typical for larger, 5.1 Home Theatre systems. But it requires much less space of your TV table.
Studio Oslo can be connected into phones socket in your TV. It is easy, additionally you can control volume by TV remote handset.

Then, connect left speaker .
You have three pairs of input sockets:
Due to internal mixer no input selector is needed. All inputs are still active, so you can simultaneously receive a call from mobile phone, listen a music from CD, and play your own solo by synthesizer.
Studio Oslo build
It requires a pin-point source of sound reproduction to listen from a small distance. It requires a hi-tech wide-band speaker. Its membrane is made up of anodized aluminum and is equipped with a huge magnet, metal die-cast chassis and high-power, double ventilated voice coil.
The set is fitted with high-end audio parts like Wima and Sanyo ( Suncon ) capacitors,
For precision and long-life volume control, the Alps potentiometer is applied:
The speaker is driven by a custom designed Analog Sound Processor and AB class amplifier. This processor makes all corrections of amplitude and time weaknesses of speaker driver. Despite small size it enabled to cover practically a whole acoustic spectrum from 38 Hz up to 21 kHz at medium-level signals.
The amplifier is AB high bias type. It needs an external heatsink, but it makes more detailed, more dynamic sound to compare with popular D-class amps. It delivers 30 W per channel.
The pair of Studio Oslo monitors has enough bass energy to play with full volume on desk, or to play with medium level in bigger areas. However, the subwoofer is recomended to enjoy Studio Oslo in bigger rooms, with full power of music.
Sub Oslo has medium size ( W x H x D ) : 260 mm x 260mm+40 mm feets x 340 mm. The internal volume is only 15 liters, diaphragm area is small too. To get enough acoustic power , the JBL was applied, with very high excusrsion ( 18 mm p-p linear, 30 mm p-p maximum ) . This solution has low efficiency, so build-in, powerfull amplifier was needed. Working in AB class, amp can deliver 150 W and 40 A p-p of current.
The subwoofer is painted in black pearl, what is the most friendly finish. Of course, it can be painted by any colour, as well as monitors.
All filters, phase shifters and inputs were designed exact to match with Studio Oslo monitors. So, the connection and tunning of subwoofer is easy. To get the optimal results, we recommend to set volume knob of subwoofer to maximum, and turn-down the bass knob of monitors. It decreaces the bass energy of monitors amplifiers and speakers. Free from bass generation, monitors can produce more power at mid/high frequencies. Also, bass distorsons are lower.
The subwoofer can be placed near the walls, or near the corners, to get the optimum bass features. If it will be necessarry, it is possible to connect more subwoofer in signal chain.
If Studio Oslo plays as main speakers in room, they should be placed 40-60 cm above the floor. To do it, a dedicated stands were designed. Stands are empty, so it is possible to fill them by sand. It increaces stability and internal damping. The company stands has 45 cm height, black pearl finish.
The flying case:
The Studio Oslo speakers are the unique combination of small size and excellent sound. There are perfect portable tool for record engineers. Also, they makes moody background music for garden party, or mountain cottage vacations. The dedicated trouble-free transport box was made. The heavy-duty flying case is made from phenolic-impregnated brich plywood and aluminium. It has also an extra space for accesorries, like power supply, cables, tablet etc.
