Lenco has announced the upcoming launch of PlayLink by Lenco, its range of multi-room audio systems. Through Lenco’s collaboration with Qualcomm Connected Experiences, Inc., a subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated, the PlayLink range benefits from the features of the Qualcomm® AllPlay™ smart media platform.
The AllPlay smart audio module is integrated within each of the PlayLink products, creating maximum wireless connectivity and removing the need for an additional bridge product to connect to the router. Setup is therefore simpler than ever before say Lenco.
Bluetooth is another fast alternative for connection to mobile devices or other peripherals not equipped for Wi-Fi. The PlayLink range is also compatible with NFC-enabled devices, meaning music can be played instantly from just one touch between the two devices.
PlayLink by Lenco consists of two portable wireless speakers and the PlayConnect box which transforms existing audio systems from any brand into a wireless music streaming system.
PlayLink 4 is the more compact of the two speakers, offering increased portability and potential for outdoor use through a removable battery. The slightly larger PlayLink 6 meanwhile brings maximum power and connectivity.
The PlayLink 4 and PlayLink 6 speakers each use three drivers: an extended range woofer for and two mid/tweeter drivers for mid-range frequencies and high frequencies. The mediums are offset at an angle of 6° from the speaker axis, optimising the wide stereo effect, which can also be achieved by pairing two separate speakers in one room. Each speaker features a full digital amplifier with three outputs.
Music lovers already equipped with their own Hi-Fi equipment can also add wireless streaming through the PlayLink range, without replacing their existing system. Through connection to the wireless router, the PlayConnect box enables wireless streaming for the existing system, as well as the possibility to link it to other wireless devices.
The PlayLink 4 and Playlink 6 speakers have been designed to support high-resolution ‘lossless’ audio files of up to 24-bit/192kHz, such as WAV, FLAC and ALAC.
PlayLink 4: 199 euro
PlayLink 6: 299 euro
