High-end German audio specialists Loewe have today revealed a new portable speaker, the Loewe Speaker 2go.
Packing in Bluetooth and NFC connectivity, it’s designed as a travel companion for those looking to wirelessly stream tunes on the go.
Compact at 24 x 10.5 x 5.1 cm, it manages to offer 40W output using three digital amplifiers, with three separate speakers within the enclosure.
With a dedicated bass driver, the speaker offers 2.1 stereo sound, with the output split across a 20W sub and a pair of 10W tweeters. That subwoofer also benefits from a bass reflex tube, which should enhance low frequencies.
Interestingly, the speaker also has an integrated mic, optimised for voice, allowing the Speaker 2go to route calls and be used as a speakerphone, meaning you wont have to disconnect your smartphone should a call come through. You may want to make sure the volume is turned down a bit if its a private conversation though.
The speaker boasts a wireless range of 10m across Bluetooth, and if that’s not available, also supports line-in through a 3.5mm jack. The speaker can also charge connected devices from its own onboard rechargeable battery using a built0in USB port.
Keep an eye out for this one in stores from June, priced £269.
