You have three options:
a) Order with four weeks right of return
You can select, configure and order your INKLANG loudspeaker online. After receiving your speaker, you have a four week return policy. This does not apply to loudspeakers that have been painted according to your individual color specifications as part of our Designers Edition (free choice of color).
b) Hear it in advance at home (trial weekender)
You can borrow the INKLANG loudspeaker of your choice nationwide for a weekend of your choice with our trial weekender. The loudspeaker will always be delivered to you on Fridays and will be picked up the following Monday. The trial weekender is currently available in Germany, Austria and the Netherlands. You can find out everything else about the trial weekender here.
c) Visit the showroom in Hamburg
d) Meet customers in your region
You are also welcome to exchange information directly with INKLANG customers in your region or to have a personal sound check. You can find out which customers live in your area here.
INKLANG supplies its customers directly without the involvement of dealers and distributors. Since the considerable costs for these sales channels are eliminated, the price-performance ratio of our products is fundamentally better.
There are basically no restrictions on the amplifiers that you can combine with your passive INKLANG loudspeaker. Due to the quality of the speakers, the use of sound-influencing settings such as bass, treble or loudness is not necessary. This allows the amplifier to work linearly and is not challenged disproportionately.
You can find attractive offers here.
The larger the speaker or the larger the room in which it is playing, the more power is required. We recommend the use of stereo amplifiers from a price range of approx. 900 EUR and a power level of 60 watts per channel and more (Surround amplifier from around 2,000 EUR).
There are no upper limits, as the speaker is controlled more and more precisely with increasing power. In particular, there are no distortions / excessive demands on the amplifier, which are dangerous for loudspeakers. Rather, the loudspeaker is guided cleanly to its mechanical load limit, which as such is immediately audible: The membranes of the woofers hit the pole plate of the magnet system, which is audible through a clear knocking, toking sound.
Basically, the performance level of tube amplifiers is rather low due to their technology. Conversely, tube amplifiers are usually combined with loudspeakers that have a high level of efficiency, such as horn loudspeakers. The efficiency is expressed with "dB (1W / 1 m)". However, this value makes no statement about the audiophile quality of a loudspeaker.
In the AYERS series, this value is between 82 and 85 dB (1W / 1 m) in the usual middle segment of the market. This is absolutely unproblematic for the combination with all other amplifier technologies.
Technically, there is nothing to be said against the combination of our loudspeakers with a tube amplifier, but the achievable maximum volumes tend to be limited due to the lower power level in combination with a medium efficiency. As a guide, we recommend a minimum power level of your tube amplifier of 60 watts per channel.
It is important to us that the specifications for the frequency range correspond as closely as possible to the practical situation in the living room of our customers. Specifically, the lowest low frequencies, which the loudspeaker generally reproduces more quietly (-10 dB), are almost always boosted or amplified by the installation in the living room.
The value specification with -3dB usually corresponds to the measurement of the frequency range in an anechoic acoustic room or a laboratory situation. This value is also correct, but does not correspond to the reality in a living room, where the speakers are exclusively used by our customers. We have therefore focused on a practical specification of the transmission range for our customers.
HD 10 Stream Connect
The HD 10 transmits music wirelessly to the active AYERS Wireless speakers from INKLANG. These are the models AYERS One, Two, Three, Four and Five Wireless. The HD 10 sends a digital music signal on its own 5.8 GHz radio network to the speakers without loss. The radio signal also contains the volume information, which the DDFA power amplifiers in the loudspeaker convert accordingly.
No, there are no differences. Due to the purely digital processing structure of the DDFA (Direct Digital Feedback Amplifier) power amplifiers in the AYERS wireless speakers, the digital signal transmission from the HD 10 wireless is not interrupted. The digitally received signal is fed directly into the DSPs and power amplifiers without further conversion and is only converted immediately before the loudspeaker drivers. This is often structured differently with other manufacturers.
A wireless signal transmission to wireless speakers of other manufacturers is not possible, since these are implemented differently in the technical design of each manufacturer.
This is possible via cable. The HD 10 offers two coax digital outputs and one analog stereo pre-out. The output (analog and digital) can be volume controlled (variable) or fixed volume (fixed). This can be set in the HD 10's InX app as needed.
This is possible via cable. The HD 10 offers two coax digital outputs and one analog stereo pre-out. The output (analog and digital) can be volume controlled (variable) or - useful in conjunction with your amplifier - fixed volume (fixed). This can be set in the HD 10's InX app as needed.
Since the HD 10 receives and transmits a lot of data via radio, we generally recommend placing the small device on a piece of furniture. Placing it in an open wooden furniture/shelf also shows good results. Placing it in metal furniture or furniture with a metal frame (e.g. USM-Haller) is difficult. The metal surfaces/framework shield the radio waves and make operation unstable or impossible.
The following streaming services are integrated: TIDAL, Deezer, Qobuz, Deezer and Spotify Connect. In addition, you have free access to worldwide Internet radio as well as podcasts.
You can access music on a network disk via your network. For this purpose, the source "Music server" is available in the InX app. If necessary, you must enable the "Media streaming options" on your PC or the network hard drive or activate the "DLNA" function so that the HD 10 can access the hard drive. In addition to accessing via a network hard drive, you can connect a USB flash drive or USB hard drive directly to the HD 10's USB-A port and access it via the InX app.
The HD 10 provides free access to worldwide internet radio as well as podcasts. You can save your favorite stations as favorites in the InX app and access them directly.
The HD 10 has a Bluetooth input. Basically, you integrate the HD 10 into your home network (WLAN or wired) and control the device with the integrated streaming services via the InX app or via the Spotify app. All content is sent directly from the router to the HD 10 (so-called network streaming). Bluetooth is used, for example, to play content from tablets and smartphones of friends or children who should not be logged into your WLAN, do not use the InX app or only want to play something briefly.
The following inputs are available for connecting external devices:
An additional phono preamplifier is required to connect a turntable. This small additional device, which is partly integrated into turntables, is connected between the turntable and the analog input of the HD 10 Stream Connect.
In addition to the three selectable room EQs on the AYERS Wireless speakers, you can activate the tone control in the menu of the HD 10 via the InX app and adjust bass and treble to taste. This feature is only available in conjunction with the AYERS Wireless speakers, as the sound correction is done in the speakers' DSPs.
AYERS Wireless Speakers
Yes, wireless signal transmission to the AYERS Wireless loudspeakers is only possible with the INKLANG HD 10 Stream Connect due to the technical concept. This applies accordingly to the wireless concepts of other loudspeaker manufacturers, as the technical control and signal transmission concepts are implemented differently for each manufacturer.
The digital wireless signal is transmitted up to 10 meters when there is a direct line of sight between the speaker and the HD 10. If there is a lightweight wall between the transmitter and the receiving speakers, the max. distance is reduced to 3 - 4 meters. The concrete value depends on the individual installation situation. The InX app shows you the connection quality under "Settings" > "Speakers" after pairing when you tap on the name of the individual speaker.
This is possible by cable. Two digital connections (optical/coax) are available on both speakers for this purpose. You can also have the digital signal passed from one speaker to the other. A digital out is available for this purpose. Alternatively, you can also connect an analog preamplifier to the power amplifiers of the speakers. IMPORTANT: All sources that you connect to the power amplifiers must be volume controlled. Otherwise the playback will be at full volume.
Due to the technical design, this is not possible. You can use a Bluetooth connection via the HD 10 Stream Connect, which then radios the signal to the two speakers.
Due to the technical design, this is basically not possible. You can use your TV via HDMI Audio Return through the HD 10 Stream Connect, which then radios the signal to the speakers.
The analog input of the DDFA power amplifiers is aligned so that the max. volume (0 dB) is reached at approx. 2 Vrms. This can still be attenuated by 3 or 6 dB via the "Level" slide switch, as long as the input signal is louder. If the input signal is clearly too loud, distortions, so-called digital clipping, will occur early on. Check the specifications of the manufacturer of your source device on the strength of the max. output signal at the preamplifier output in advance.
You can configure your INKLANG loudspeaker in up to 3,480 variants. Therefore, your personal model is only created after you have placed your order. The production or delivery time is between 3 and 4 weeks from receipt of your order.

To say it in advance, in the service desert of Germany, Inklang is more than just an oasis. [...] The delivery was faster than expected. Very well packed and without any blemish. I could not help it and just put the Ayers Two and put on a record. Wow....what might that sound like when they are properly set up and played in?
Here also the consultation in the run-up to my order (Ayers Three) is to be emphasized. A question is just entered online and not a few minutes later the answer appears. You just have a great feeling how you are perceived as a potential customer, and not somewhere in a waiting loop of a call center sour...
