SuperTone

Introducing the Bluetooth wireless speaker for grown ups

Feel the Noise

In a plastic world of endless and seemingly semi-disposable Bluetooth® speakers, SuperTone is an oasis, delivering a timeless mix of authenticity, quality materials and acclaimed acoustic engineering.

Its mid-century inspired design belies the cutting-edge audio electronics that lie within its handsome hand-crafted American walnut casework. Furthermore, the use of high quality anodised T6 aluminium, pressed steel and CNC machined parts further injects a reassuring tactility.


Features

Beating at the acoustic heart of the system is an 80 watt Class-D amplifier, twin 3.5” BMR flat-panel speakers and a 6” ported subwoofer. Acoustically engineered to provide the soundtrack in spaces large and small, SuperTone creates rich digital audio, tight controlled bass and an extended listening sweet-spot. Perfect for a wide range of musical styles, from rock and jazz to R&B, acoustic and spoken word, all rendered with a richness that leaves a lasting impression.

Alongside wireless Bluetooth® connectivity with Qualcomm® aptX™, SuperTone is equipped with a large array of physical connectors including 3.5mm headphone jack, AUX-IN, digital optical in and stereo RCA in, allowing connection of a variety of devices including CD players and Sonos equipment. SuperTone even includes a USB connector to allow simultaneous charging of your smartphone or tablet device.

Acoustics

  • Acoustic Engineering

    SuperTone’s audio characteristics are the result of a considered blend of the finest electronic, acoustic and software design. Premium quality audio components, all-digital technology, cutting-edge sound modelling techniques and a carefully engineered bass porting system combine to deliver category defining performance.

  • BMR

    BMR (Balanced Mode Radiator) speaker drivers utilise flat diaphragm transducer technology and combine the performance attributes of a flat panel speaker with the pistonic movement of a conventional loudspeaker, resulting in a high performance compact drive unit that develops wide dispersion and an expanded sweet spot.

  • EQ

    Cutting-edge sound modelling techniques have been used to design SuperTone’s award-winng sound profile. In tandem with our custom hardware design, SuperTone’s proprietary EQ configuration develops a warm open sound with clarity, detail and deep rich bass – free from coloration and distortion and benefiting from an expansive sound field.

  • Cabinet

    A hand-crafted wooden cabinet has been selected for its superb acoustic properties, no other material provides the deep foundations of great audio performance like wood.

  • Amplification

    All-digital 80 watt Class-D amplifier.


Bluetooth

Wireless Freedom

Wirelessly stream music to SuperTone from a wide variety of Bluetooth® enabled devices including smartphones, tablets and laptops.

The addition of aptX® technology means that where supported by the transmitting device, streaming music will be at CD-like quality, rather than the MP3 quality of standard Bluetooth® streams.


Design & Materials

Aesthetically, SuperTone is a balanced blend of modernity and mid-century charm – perfectly proportioned, substantial, handsome. Whilst always looking to innovate, we also keep one eye on the past, learning and taking inspiration from the great designers of the 20th century. We believe that form should follow function and that attention to detail matters. Good design and the use of quality materials enrich and elevate the user experience.

A hand-crafted American walnut clad wooden cabinet has been selected for its superb acoustic properties, quite simply, wood has a resonant quality that cannot be matched by plastics or composite materials.

The use of high quality anodised T6 aluminium for the front facia and speaker grille, pressing steel for the back plate, and CNC machined aluminium bass, treble and volume controls further inject a reassuring tactility and sense of honesty that cannot be achieved with lesser materials.
