Swedish outfit announces a new Bluetooth, powered speaker
A new Bluetooth speaker powered by a D Class amplifier, the new BT5 features a 19mm tweeter plus a 102mm mid/bass driver. A bass reflex port sits in the accompanying chassis while a fabric grill sits out front.
This unit fits into the company’s array of other Bluetooth speakers plus Sonos-busting multi-room speaker units. The aim being to provide you with a full suite of wireless options.
Spanning 134 x 250 x 150mm, the unit offers Bluetooth 4.0 plus a 3.5mm Aux input and is offered in a selection of finishes: beach-washed driftwood, rich walnut and polished black wood effect. Which sounds very Jasper Conran.
“Styled-upon the recent design-trend for reused wood and natural materials, each finish has a pleasing appeal that sets it apart from the more traditional block colours, with the aim to attract a wider audience.”
See? You could be reading that now while standing in Debenhams.
“Driftwood gives the feel of sun-bleached summer days and smooth, flowing motion of the waves, adding a nostalgic…”
Yada, yada, yada…which emphasises that this particular speaker is aimed right between the eyes of the lifestyle user and at Sonos’ bank balance.
Out now, you can pick up a BT5 for £150 each.
