Completely accurate music reproduction requires more than a
thoroughly optimized speaker. It requires a speaker that works together
with the acoustics of the listening room. The Dutch and Dutch 8c
is more than just a loudspeaker. It is a unique acoustic concept,
because its revolutionary design provides constant directivity from 100
Hz upwards. As a result, the 8c is above and beyond any other system in
terms of neutrality, precision, and in-room tonal balance.
The 8c represents Dutch and Dutch's commitment to accuracy and
clarity. With its constant directivity from 100 Hz upwards and ±0.5 dB
frequency response from 35 Hz upwards, music can now be experienced
exactly as it was intended. Nothing is added, nothing left out.
Experience the sensation of truly accurate music reproduction, hear
truth in audio like never before.
Tune the system to the room, not the room to the system. 8c’s adapt
to the room they are in and can be placed (very) close to room
boundaries without losing performance. To achieve this, 8c’s combine a
proprietary waveguide tweeter with an acoustic cardioid midrange,
boundary-coupled bass drivers and active room matching. The result:
superb acoustical reproduction in any room.
Besides drivers, the 8c’s small footprint presence holds high-end
DACs, amps, subwoofers and a DSP. The system also comes with room
matching and streaming capabilities out-of-the-box. All components match
each other perfectly and together deliver a “big sound” at 106 dB
continuously from 35 Hz upwards, while keeping the signal-to-noise ratio
From the smooth baffle to the solid oak cabinet, the 8c’s construction is designed to look as clean as it sounds.
Group or individually control every 8c in your network through the
simple yet powerful user interface, available as web-based application
or native app. After the 8c’s are automatically discovered on your LAN,
you’ll have full control of settings like gain, distance to front and
side walls, updates and many parametric filters. Internet connectivity
is not required.
Besides balanced analog or AES3 input, you can stream digital music
directly to your 8c’s. Setup left and right position using your mobile
device and the rest is done automatically. Within your LAN, 8c’s can be
grouped into multiple zones. Perfectly synchronized music can then be
played effortlessly in those zones.
Automatic updates can keep your 8c’s up-to-date with industry
standards and trends. After extensive testing periods, new firmware
versions are made available from Dutch and Dutch's cloud based software
platform. If so desired and set up, 8c’s will download and install these
updates automatically, adding new features overnight.

The 8c Studio cabinet is made of MDF (medium density fiberboard), the most
common material for loudspeaker cabinets. There is no acoustical or audible
difference between the two.
There are M10 fly points on the sides, and soon there will be a U bracket that is
compatible with hardware from various manufacturers like K&M, Manfrotto and
The 8C Studio will not support Roon/streaming.
