Tangent Audio has announced two new wireless audio products, the Spectrum DAB/FM radio and W1 wireless multi-room speaker with built-in Chromecast audio.
The Tangent Spectrum DAB allows access to hundreds of radio stations listening via FM, DAB and DAB+. If you want to listen to music, podcasts, audiobooks or other audio sources from your smartphone, tablet or computer, you can connect the Tangent Spectrum DAB to your device wirelessly via Bluetooth or the Aux (mini-jack) jack on the rear panel using the cable supplied.
The Tangent Spectrum DAB features side-firing, full-range speaker drive units on each side of the cabinet. EQ sound settings provides eight audio presets.
Expect black or white matt finishes with a walnut veneer, wooden base plinth. The Spectrum DAB includes a central multifunction button, high-res colour LED display and touch-button controls.
The Tangent Spectrum W1 features both Bluetooth and Google Chromecast integrated within. Google Chromecast enables you to stream music wirelessly using your Wi-Fi network. Tap the Cast button on your mobile device to initiate.
During playback, you can control the music selection and volume of the speaker manually or directly from your mobile device. Once the speaker is streaming, you can answer calls on the phone, play a game or move around without interrupting your music. When you can’t access a Wi-Fi network and want to stream music or radio to your Tangent Spectrum W1, you can pair your mobile device with the speaker wirelessly via Bluetooth or connect the speaker with the cable supplied using the Aux (mini jack) input on the rear panel.
Like the Spectrum DAB, the W1 features twin, full-range drive units housed in each side of the cabinet, eight pre-set EQ audio settings with black or white matt finishes with walnut veneer wooden base plinth.
Tangent’s Spectrum DAB/FM BT radio and Spectrum W1 multi-room speakers are available now in the UK at £180 each

This is from Tangent, “The logo from the radio station comes from the broadcaster, and not all broadcasters send out the same way. For the Tangent Spectrum DAB it does support jpg slideshow for showing the logo of the station, and if the logo from the station is not shown it properly is send out in another format.”
