Kii Audio THREE BXT Loudspeaker Kii-ping In Control

Kii-ping In Control

Although the THREE BXT can be used 'as is', most buyers will want to add the optional Kii Control external controller/preamp. With it, digital input options are considerably expanded to include coaxial and optical S/PDIF (maximum sampling rates 192kHz) as well as USB, which supports PCM files up to 384kHz and DSD files up to DSD128. In addition, the controller provides volume, source selection and mute controls alongside armchair adjustment of the DSP's boundary and contour filtering, facilitated by a small OLED display.


Although the Kii Control uses a wired connection to the master THREE BXT, the main functions can also be remote controlled using either an Apple Remote or RC-5 protocol IR handset. Some potential buyers will inevitably question why Wi-Fi isn't supported to allow control via iOS/Android apps, but perhaps that will come. Others will thank heaven for a proper, chunky control solution with real buttons and a real volume knob that won't get lost down the back of the sofa and never tells you it's having a problem connecting with the network!
