US speaker brand Definitive Technology has expanded its Demand Series loudspeaker range, adding two pairs of floorstanders and a centre channel. The Demand D15 and Demand D17 towers, and the D5C centre, combine the company’s flare for contemporary design using advanced materials, including carbon-fibre woofers and annealed aluminium tweeters.

Both tower speakers feature an annealed 1-inch aluminium dome tweeter, laterally offset and coupled with a 20/20 Wave Alignment Lens, said to improve imaging and eliminating symmetric diffraction from the corners of the front baffle.

A patented Balanced Double Surround System (BDSS) midrange/woofer promotes greater excursion for superior mid-range detail and bass performance.

The tower speakers boast a 5.25-inch and 6.5-inch mineral-polymer BDSS midrange/woofer, as well as dual 5.25-inch and 6.5-inch carbon fiber bass drivers and twin 8-inch and 10-inch side firing passive radiators.

For home theatre systems, there’s the matching D5C centre channel speaker, with dual 5.25-inch mid-range drivers and 1-inch annealed aluminium dome tweeter.

“Definitive Technology introduced the Demand Series in 2017 with three bookshelf speakers, which were warmly received in the market for their graceful design and highly accurate reproduction. Since then, we’ve been busy designing two new tower speakers and a centre channel built on the principles of the original Demand Series bookshelf speakers,” says Michael Greco, category director Loudspeakers at Sound United.
“Listeners will see familiar technologies, however we also added newly designed dual carbon fiber bass drivers and dual side-firing passive radiators to the towers. The centre channel is the perfect addition to the line for home theatre aficionados.”

The D15 retails for £,2,999 a pair, with the D17 at £4,299. The D5C centre sells for £799.
