Monitor Audio’s new Airstream S200 Wi-Fi speaker is say the company’s press release “an inspirational answer to the stereo S200_monitoraudiodilemma, concentrating state-of-the-art connectivity, advanced digital processing and powerful amplification within a diminutive speaker design, smaller than the average one-box system but endowed with the latest tech to generate a deceptively big stereo sound from every conceivable audio source”.

The new speaker has Apple Airplay, Airstream Direct, Bluetooth, Bluetooth aptX® and DLNA on board, and will play music via PC, MAC, NAS, and Apple, Android or Windows mobiles. Away from a Wi-Fi router Bluetooth or Monitor Audio’s proprietary Airstream Direct can be used to stream to the S200. “The system’s superior audio architecture is designed to resolve higher quality streams from uncompressed Bluetooth Apt-X, ALAC (Apple lossless) and FLAC file formats as well” continues their press release.

iOS devices can be plugged in to the S200 directly using the USB/charge input for playback, charging requirements, and simple Wi-Fi sharing. Analogue and other devices can connect through a 3.5mm stereo jack.

Drivers include the proprietary gold dome C-CAM tweeter flanked on angled baffles by dual 3”-CAM metal cone bass drivers, which are augmented by a rear-firing Auxiliary Bass Radiator (ABR). The signature C-CAM drivers are directly powered by three separate class-D amplifiers optimised by intelligent digital processing.

The speaker is available in a choice of white or black finishes with toughened glass end trims and cvan be used on shelf or table-top, or from a wall via one of our optional MASM (MA Speaker Mount) ¼” UNC mounting kits.
