Home audio, Tech Digest news

aq-smartspeaker-a2.jpgAQ Audio have taken the covers off their latest SmartSpeaker model, the A2.

The follow up to the A1, lowering the price to just £129 by swapping out the rechargeable battery pack for a main-only power supply, the A2’s headlining feature is Apple AirPlay connectivity, letting you stream music from iTunes, internet radio and other audio sources using the OS X and iOS one-touch set-up standard.

Those rocking Android devices are looked after too, with AQ Audio providing an Android app that will stream music to the devices.

Designed as multi-speaker set-ups, the A2 works alongside existing A1 speakers, with AQ Audio teaming up with the creators of the AirFoil application to offer a 40% discount on the multi-speaker stream controller software.

Featuring interchangeable coloured covers in emerald green, poppy red, african violet and orange zest shades, you can pick up a single SmartSpeaker A2 for £129, while a twin pack will set you back £235 and a four pack £454.
