Monitor Audio’s new ASB-10 compact Active Soundbar system is engineered to restore the power of an audio and video experience by re-energising HD and UHD pictures with the sound they deserve. Although TV panels deliver ever wider more enveloping pictures, their on-board sound quality is in relative decline. Size limitations imposed by shrinking bezels mean that the speakers within them reproduce only fraction of the bandwidth available from today’s DTV boxes, games consoles and media players. More »

For music, movies and gaming, AEGO sub-sat series combines miniature high-clarity satellite speakers with a powerful matching subwoofer. The subwoofer houses comprehensive wired and wireless connectivity plus high-output amplifiers for all three channels. This next generation model will be available in two versions. The traditional subwoofer plus stereo satellite package is now joined by a new subwoofer plus single-speaker stereo soundbar version known as the AEGO Sound3ar. Thanks to keeping the electronics and connectivity in the subwoofer the new AEGO Sound3ar is one of the smallest, soundbars available. Both formats share the same subwoofer module featuring a suite of input connections including optical digital, analogue and Bluetooth aptX wireless for instant music streaming from any Bluetooth enabled smart device.
Both the stereo loudspeaker and soundbar systems benefit from AE’s audio performance and the AEGO series’ metal-bodied satellite speakers. The aluminium alloy housing offers a rigid enclosure for acoustic performance as well as looking stylish. On the desktop, the AEGO3 satellite speakers’ brushed aluminium will complement a wide range of modern PCs. The AEGO Sound3ar, with its thin bevel and dark grille, pairs well with many TVs. Over three years in development, the new AEGO3 subwoofer is a compact hub of the AEGO3 system. Housing the input connectivity, amplifiers and LED status, volume and bass level indicators, only the subwoofer need be connected to the mains and your input devices. This simplifies connectivity to the AEGO3 satellites or Sound3ar with just the dedicated RCA to RCA AEGO speaker cables supplied.
