Bluesound Pulse Flex 2i
Bluesound does high quality stuff. They are developed by NAD, which has been manufacturing good stuff for decades. It is the smallest wireless speaker in their multiroom system. Despite its small size, it delivers fine sound quality for all ears. On the top, in addition to play / pause / volume, there are five physical buttons that you can use as favorites. Each button gives you instant access to a playlist, an internet radio station, an album or whatever it may be.
With the associated app, you can play music in 24-bit, Tidal, Spotify Connect, Deezer to name a few. If you buy two Pulse Flex, you can make a stereo pair of them.
Bluesound can also be integrated with several stereo amplifiers and surround receivers from NAD.
Bluesound Node N130
Not a speaker, but something to connect your speakers to. Node is the Bluesound system’s wireless music streamer that also works as a wireless preamplifier together with your own stereo or home cinema system.
It supports high definition stereo sound up to 24 bit / 192 kHz. About your Focussongs in wma format work, we are very hesitant. A 32-bit D / A converter and hdmi / eARC input allow you to connect the TV audio. Available in black or white and connected to wifi. Like Pulse, you have access to music services via the app. Of course, this can also be integrated into NAD amplifiers.
If you think dual speaker elements are creepy then we can introduce you to Sony SRS-RA5000. Here you get seven elements that pump out the music.
Sony’s wireless speakers have three upstanding speakers, three side speakers and a subwoofer. Connect via wifi, bluetooth, Spotify Connect or through built-in Chromecast. With Google Home or Amazon Alexa, you can easily add the speaker to a speaker group. Also has a function that automatically calibrates the sound according to the room it is placed in.
In addition to mysterious TV series, the Danes export luxurious sound in the form of the Bang & Olufsen brand. Balance is a wireless speaker in Danish (what else?) Design with good sound. The base of the speaker is made of wood, the front in woven textile while the top plate is made of aluminum with backlit touch buttons. The sound should not be worse either.
Listen via Chromecast, Spotify Connect, bluetooth or Airplay 2. Balance can be turned into a true stereo configuration. Balance is equipped with seven speaker elements, each with its own dedicated amplifier. You pay not only for nice design, but also for good sound. Balance also has active room correction that optimizes sound based on speaker placement.
Bowers & Wilkins Wedge Formation
Cool design, you think. But it’s not for nothing that B&W speakers have a good reputation among music lovers. Listen to music from streaming services or bluetooth with a wide and dynamic sound image. The molded cabinet is made of wood.
The dedicated elements for treble and midrange are based on solutions from B&W’s 800 series. A built-in 6-inch subwoofer and 2 x 120 watts will delight you, but maybe not your neighbors. But it is not possible to satisfy everyone.
Wedge can be combined with other Formation devices into a multiroom system. Built-in mesh network ensures that the music does not pause just when David Gilmour is about to start the solo in Comfortably Numb.
Just because you have long hair and come from Byske does not mean that you only like the Volvo 740 and folk beer. You also like Bang & Olufsen Beosound Emerge, a wireless speaker that with its ultra-thin design does not take up more space than a book on the shelf. Nevertheless, you get a rich sound with good spread. Perfect if you want a compact solution, while sound, user-friendliness and design are high on your list.
Stream via Chromecast, AirPlay 2, Spotify Connect, Internet radio or bluetooth. You can also pair the Emerge with other speakers that support Chromecast or AirPlay 2, or pair two Emerges for stereo sound. On the inside, there are three speaker elements that are each powered by dedicated amplifiers.
