Krypton, the Japanese company specializing in desktop loudspeakers, has recently unveiled its newest speakers.

The initial release, named KX-0.5P II, boasts a sleek classic black design with a glossy piano lacquer finish. Setting it apart from its predecessor, the original version without the II prefix, is its enhanced connectivity options through bi-amping and bi-wiring. Additionally, the developers have incorporated a state-of-the-art PC-Triple C cable for improved wiring. Notably, the damping material composition has also been upgraded, further enhancing the overall performance of the product.
