German audio brand Loewe has announced the release of their first Apple AirPlay speaker with the minimalistic and stylish Loewe Air Speaker.
As well as packing some good power into the Air Speaker with dual subwoofers, tweeters, and mid-range drivers, totaling 80W (RMS) power output, they have added some color options and customization to the system as well.
The base of the 'box' will be available in black and silver with a strong aluminum finish, whilst the top introduced some colorful replaceable panels that they say will be available in the entire RAL spectrum upon request. It is nice to see that they are incorporating some form of personalization into a system that with its design is already quite adaptable to settings and interior design.
Add in features like multi-room support, USB connection, and AUX-in, and you have a serious contender for the likes of B&W Zeppelin Air and Philips Fidelio Soundsphere DS9800 when the system arrives in October.
Price of the Loewe Air Speaker in the UK will be around £699.
