nuPro SP-500

Slender and emphatic temptation

High-quality active floorstanding speaker set with perfect practical value: it may sound a little sober, but it describes our nuPro SP-500 package almost perfectly. With power amplifiers that generate enough power even for action blockbusters, flexible connectivity including HDMI eARC and Bluetooth aptX HD as well as decoders for Dolby Digital and DTS, the nuPro SP-500 can take on any mission. Thanks to numerous Nubert DSP features such as Wide mode, Voice+ or adaptive loudness, the right sound profile is always available.

nuPro SP-500 mit TV

Acoustic upgrade for your TV

As a classic upgrade for the TV, the nuPro SP-500 provide more emphasis, more volume, more spatial width and clear voices. When connected via HDMI eARC, you can also conveniently control the volume using the TV remote control. Alternatively, an optical and an analogue input are available.

nuPro SP-500 Stereo

The stereo power

The nuPro SP-500 set also focusses on outstanding stereo sound quality and is therefore also suitable as a replacement for the classic stereo system. All content can be played with an existing CD or network player via the digital inputs. Or you can stream via smartphone - using Bluetooth aptX HD.

nuPro SP-500 mit Subwoofer

Even stronger with nuSub

33 Hz lower cut-off frequency: Our nuPro SP-500 set plays down really low. If you want even more and even deeper bass for the film spectacle, we recommend a model from the nuSub series, such as the nuSub XW-900. Simply connect the nuPro SP-500 with the appropriate cables and the low-frequency fun factor increases even further.

nuPro SP-500 im Set

Our all-rounder in a set

The nuPro SP-500 becomes even more versatile with our sophisticated set offers. For example, you can upgrade Apple Airplay 2 and modern network functions with the appropriate set, or give your record collection the right expression with our vinyl set. Our USB DAC set is suitable for connection to a PC.

Remote control

The remote control with metal surface is clearly laid out and offers quick access to the inputs, volume, DSP modes, sound control and a Bluetooth pairing button to connect the smartphone.

Wide mode plus adaptive loudness switching

We have developed an adaptive loudness function so that the bass is reproduced at full volume even at low volumes. A wide function is also integrated, which makes the sound of the SP-500 set sound more expansive. Your advantage: maximum sound under all conditions.

Wide-Sound
Voice+

Voice+ and tone control

Dialogue can always be heard clearly and distinctly thanks to our clever Voice+ function. You can also adjust the bass range as well as the mids and highs. Your advantage: your taste determines the sound.

Dolby and DTS integrated

Blu-rays, DVDs and streaming content usually come with a Dolby or DTS track that offers an acoustically harmonious mix. In our nuPro SP sets, we support these codecs and thus create the optimum sound from the data. Your advantage: room-filling sound and less configuration work.

Colours

Our nuPro SP models have an elaborate lacquer finish and a matt surface. The choice is yours: White for a discreet look in the living room or timeless black as a statement for the music room? The magnetic covers with grey tones provide contrast and a discreet, elegant look.

Design

The trend in loudspeakers is towards seamless integration into the living room and a chic, yet unobtrusive look. The design brief was therefore clear: as little visible technology as possible, with good usability at the same time. The result is speakers with a modern look and elegant curves.

Series overview

The nuPro SP models comprise 2 models, the compact SP-200 and the floorstanding SP-500. The models are always a complete pair and therefore ready-to-use. They can be operated either on the unit using the rotary control, with the included remote control or, when using HDMI eARC, with the TV remote control.

Box type and possible applications

Are you looking for a stereo system that is as stylish as it is flexible, with extensive features, a wide range of uses and top-class sound? Then you've come to the right place with the nuPro SP-500. What looks like an elegant pair of floorstanding speakers at first glance turns out to be an all-round package for home entertainment, from living room concerts to home cinema and gaming sessions.

The nuPro SP-500 are two fully active floorstanding speakers that are connected to form a stereo pair via the supplied link cable. Fully active means: the nuPro SP-500 not only come with a built-in digital amplifier with a powerful total output of 160 watts, but also enough analogue and digital inputs to connect all important playback devices, as well as the complete signal processing and control electronics to control the sound reproduction easily and effectively. In practice, this means that the nuPro SP-500 can lend a voice - and a stunningly beautiful one at that - to all typical solo entertainers in the living room, from the TV to the network player or the games console to the smartphone (via Bluetooth). Whether as a traditional hi-fi system, as a modern streaming system, as an alternative to the TV soundbar or as a gaming sound system: the nuPro SP-500 inspire with exemplary everyday suitability and outstanding sound.

The advanced three-way principle with bass reflex support, the modern high-performance drivers from the nuPro series that are optimally controlled by the integrated signal processor, the efficient digital amplifier and the clever cabinet design ensure that the nuPro SP-500 appear acoustically much larger and more confident than their slim proportions or affordable price would suggest.

In the beautifully shaped wooden cabinets with rounded edges, the silk-matt shimmering sanded finish in black or white, the elegantly sloping metal feet and the magnetically adhering covers made of high-quality acoustic fabric, the nuPro SP-500s cut a brilliant figure not only acoustically but also visually. Thanks to the supplied remote control, the operation is always comfortable. For sources with HDMI/eARC connections, such as modern televisions, important settings such as volume can even be controlled with the remote control of the external player. Meanwhile, a coloured LED ring provides information about the operating status of the active speakers.

The nuPro SP-500's many functions include bass and treble control, a loudness circuit that increases the bass pressure at low volumes, as well as the innovative "Voice+" mode and Nubert's tried-and-tested "listening zone expansion". The latter is particularly impressive in music reproduction because it makes the stereo stage appear even more three-dimensional and wider without distorting the sound image. The Voice+ mode, on the other hand, is primarily suitable for films and TV programmes, where it brings out speech from the rest of the sound and thus ensures better understandable dialogue.

The secret of the excellent sound of the nuPro SP-500 lies in the innovative digital amplifier technology. Because all sound signals are processed completely digitally and in high resolution all the way to the output, there is no noise such as the idling hiss familiar from some active speakers. In addition, the power amplifiers of the nuPro SP-500 are highly efficient. Both tweeters have a rated power of 20 watts each, the two woofers even rely on 60-watt power amplifiers. This means that the nuPro SP-500 still delivers a powerful sound even at long listening distances and in large rooms.

So the nuPro SP-500s are our special recommendation for discerning sound enthusiasts looking for maximum acoustic performance, ease of use and flexibility of use at a manageable price: the advanced sound pair for an advanced audience; today's digitally simple, simply beautiful stereo system.

Construction principle and housing

The nuPro SP-500 are two fully active three-way speakers that can be connected to form a stereo pair. All audio sources are connected to the master speaker (the right speaker), which houses the signal processing, control and amplifier modules and controls the client (left). Single or mono operation of the speakers is not intended.

The integrated digital amplifier provides two times 20 watts for the two tweeter paths (left/right) and two times 60 watts for the midrange/woofer branches. The music output is two times 30 and 90 watts respectively. The sound signal first passes through the active DSP crossover and is then passed on to the amplifier modules. This enables a precise separation and linearisation of the frequency ranges, which is particularly beneficial for low bass reproduction.

The cabinets of both speakers are made of acoustically advantageous and robust wood fibre boards (MDF), which are beautifully rounded at the cross edges and sealed with a high-quality sanding lacquer in the colours black or white. The bass reflex ports are located on the rear of both speakers.

To emphasise the homely feel of the nuPro SP-500, two magnetically adhering covers are supplied, covered in mottled grey acoustic fabric. If you prefer a more technical, clean look, you can of course operate the speakers without the protective covers.

The nuPro SP-500 is supplied with bevelled feet, which are attached with the enclosed mounting kit and both increase stability and decouple the speakers from the subfloor.

Chassis

The three 15-centimetre drivers of the nuPro SP-500, which cover the mid/bass range, have already proven their worth in the models of the nuPro-X series. Thanks to their modern polypropylene cone, wide excursion, powerful magnet drive and effective cooling, they shine with impressive performance values that reveal themselves in outstanding impulse fidelity, impressive load stability and profound bass response. This helps the nuPro SP-500 to achieve an astonishingly wide reproduction range, right down to a lower cut-off frequency of 33 Hertz (at minus three decibels).

The tweeter with its silk fabric dome tweeter with a diameter of 25 millimetres is also used in the bigger sisters of the nuPro X series. Among other things, it is characterised by a particularly wide, even dispersion, fine resolution in the upper frequency range and effective damping. Thus, the nuPro SP-500 shine with a detailed but harmonious high-frequency reproduction, even at higher levels.

Operation and setting options

The nuPro SP-500 can be controlled either with the included remote control or via a rotary knob on the master speaker. A multi-coloured LED ring illuminates the control knob and provides information about the operating mode and settings in both cases.

The remote control is characterised by its high-quality exterior, its ergonomic shape and its pleasant weight. It offers quick access to all settings, from volume control to source selection and sound tuning. Alternatively, the most important options can also be accessed via the precise rotary knob on the right speaker. If the nuPro SP-500s are connected to the (e)ARC port of a TV via HDMI, the volume can also be adjusted via the TV remote control.

Tone control

The SP sound pair's many adjustment options include a convenient tone control that can boost or attenuate bass and treble response. An adaptive loudness circuit improves low-frequency imaging at low levels, if desired.

The "Voice+" sound mode, which intensifies the voice reproduction and thus ensures better speech intelligibility, is particularly useful for films and TV programmes. In contrast, the multi-level "Audible Zone Expansion" ("Wide" on the remote control) offers a broader stereo effect and a more vivid stage image, primarily for music reproduction, without distorting the sound character of the recording.

Connections and decoding

There are four audio connections on the back of the master speaker. The analogue RCA input and the two digital inputs (one optical, one electrical) connect classic hi-fi players, entertainment systems and home cinema devices. The HDMI port is recommended for connection to a TV set, projector or AV receiver with a suitable ARC or eARC output, which transmits control commands in addition to audio signals. An external subwoofer can be operated at the sub-out to increase the low bass or sound pressure of the bass reproduction. In this case, the speaker is automatically operated with a crossover frequency of 80 Hertz.

Mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets and laptops can be paired wirelessly with the nuPro speakers via Bluetooth. Thanks to support for aptX HD (for Android devices) and AAC (for iOS devices) as well as aptX Low Latency, the signal is transmitted in high-resolution quality and with the shortest possible delay.

The nuPro SP-500 not only reproduces sound in PCM format, but also decodes Dolby Digital (AC3) and DTS Digital Surround. This means that the speakers optimally prepare sound tracks from Blu-ray discs, DVDs or streaming videos for stereo playback. If necessary, the correct format, the correct output and the ARC function must be activated on the source player.

Energy

The nuPro SP-500s are equipped with a convenient automatic energy-saving feature that switches the speakers on independently or puts them into power-saving standby mode when not in use. When connected via HDMI/eARC, the active speakers follow the activation commands of the source device. In stand-by mode, which can also be activated manually via the remote control or the rotary control, the speakers consume less than 0.5 watts. If desired, the system can be completely disconnected from the mains by means of a rocker switch. The wide-range power supply allows these active speakers to be used with mains voltages of 110/120 or 230/240 volts.
