Champlain, N.Y. — High-end component-audio supplier Cambridge Audio continues its diversification into tabletop digital-media speakers with the launch of its first Bluetooth-only speaker, a $149 portable AC/DC model.
It joins two recently launched high-power AC-only speakers that incorporate Bluetooth but also feature Wi-Fi, AirPlay and Internet radio streaming. Those models are the $499 100-watt Minx Air 100 and larger $599 200-watt Minx Air 200.
The new speaker is the compact two-way Minx Go, which is 4.8 inches tall and 9.3 inches wide and features scratch-resistant high-gloss finish in black or white. Key features include 18-hour lithium-ion battery that recharges in two hours, a pair of titanium tweeters, two 2-inch woofers, a back-panel passive bass radiator and an auxiliary input. To reduce distortion, Minx Go uses DSP and an acoustically damped cabinet, the company said.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
