The speaker employs DSP three-way active electronic filter technology and a high-power digital amplifier module, laying the groundwork for high-quality sound.

Exterior Design The Whiteway M5A maintains the classic family design, which is handcrafted by Whiteway using a large amount of expensive high-density solid wood on the cabinet’s periphery. A solid wood cabinet with a high density can effectively reduce resonance, resulting in a more pure musical experience. According to the official Huewei recommendations for the use of the speaker environment, the Huewei M5A is more suitable for the living room area of the environment, which can provide better low frequency and sound field.

The front panel of the Huwei M5A cabinet is made of black leather, with the original wood-colored cabinet, bringing a strong classical flavor to this speaker. From top to bottom, the front panel features an equal magnetic field band tweeter, a 75mm aluminum-magnesium alloy midrange unit, and an 8-inch large-diameter woofer.

The M5A employs the patented RT2.2 equal-field ribbon tweeter, which is commonly found in high-end products. This equal-field ribbon tweeter has a clear, natural tone and a high resolution.

The Megawatt M5A’s RT2.2 equal-field ribbon tweeter has a lighter system mass vibration, a diaphragm mass one-tenth that of a traditional tweeter, and transient characteristics that far outperform traditional tweeters.

Huewei in M5A equipped with an 8-inch large-diameter woofer, which belongs to the professional monitor X8 woofer, so that the speaker low-frequency texture more excellent, so that the bass distortion is lower, clearer and fuller details. Chip configuration Wai Wai M5A line input and balanced XLR input using Texas Instruments PCM1862 ADC chip, with 24bit/192kHz sampling rate, 103dB signal-to-noise Texas Instruments PCM9211 chip is used in the digital coaxial and optical input section, which can be connected to professional digital devices, ultra-thin TVs, Blu-ray players, and so on. Furthermore, the Megawire M5A supports direct connection via the router WLAN port, Wi-Fi input mode, and Bluetooth (APT-X) input mode, providing users with the most common connection methods currently available on the market and making them more convenient to use.

In comparison to its predecessor M3A, the Huwei M5A creates an extremely good ambience, while allowing the speaker in the dive, volume, and response to be greatly improved.
