You might remember the British company for its T14, T12– or even more recently– T9 offerings, however the latest line-up cuts the cable television, opening a host of brand-new audio sources. So, it’s out with the old 30-pin dock, but there’s still optical, AUX, video out, RCA and 3.5 mm jack hookups if you choose to keep things physically linked. It’s not just the sound source that’s on the loose either, as the friend active subwoofer uses a custom low-latency 2.4 GHz connection (claimed to be 0.01 seconds delay) too– no more hiding wires around the back. Other brand-new features consist of a new digital amplifier, a Bluetooth remote, and a settings memory to keep in mind your source, volume and EQ levels for next time. Not nearly enough? Exactly how about a “grab” function that instantaneously starts playing the last media from a paired phone or tabled? The company’s proprietary spatial sound? That, obviously, continues to be present. There are two designs to select from, the M9 for smaller sized TVs, and the M12 for the larger set in your front space. Expect to pay & pound; 299 (about $ 450) and & pound; 399 (about $ 600) respectively when they launch in March. UK retailer John Lewis will be getting them initially, but online orders and “select” individual stores ought to follow.
