German audio brand, Thonet & Vander, has announced the availability of its Kurbis Bluetooth Bookshelf Studio Monitors in Europe.

Originally founded in 1949 in Berlin by Hannes Josef Einrich following his experience in telecommunications during the Second World War, Thonet & Vander is a long-established audio brand which was reformed in the early 90’s by a team of German engineers.

With an integrated amp, the Kurbis delivers power of 340 WATTS and features Hammer Bass technology, while the Drone FX enhances the detail in the entire frequency range.

Studio Monitors

The studio monitors are constructed from HDAA wood which is a natural polymer of high density, generating a rigid and dense material. These properties prevent vibration and leakage of sound. Mesh protection is also provided to ensure drivers are guarded from any external damage.

Inside, the Kurbis has a built-in 5.25 inch woofer made entirely of aramid fibre to enhance bass, as well as one-inch silk tweeters. The upper suspension ring is made of highly elastic rubber, allowing larger displacement sensitivity and resistance to the beats of sound. The Bass Reflex resonance system works to increase the bass response of the controller and optimises the efficiency and performance of low frequencies.


Equipped with Bluetooth 4.0 wireless technology, the Kurbis Studio Monitors can stream music directly from smartphones, tablets or laptops, and works with Amazon Echo and Google Home, connecting and providing full voice control. The RCA input allows the speakers to be connected to a TV, DJ Mixer or gaming system.

The Thonet & Vander Kurbis Bluetooth Bookshelf Studio Monitors are available for RRP $149.98/£149.99
