Premium WiFi Speaker

S-A VOICE™

'Most Eloquent Speaker', title-winner in Wallpaper* Magazine's Smart Space Awards 2021.

Product including artwork available from € 1 690

 

An award-winning WiFi-speaker with a difference. With understated elegance, the S-A VOICE would more easily be described a ‘design-object’ than ‘overt technology’, yet it delivers high-end audio quality. With no need for signal-wires or floor space, you can let interior design considerations determine its placement, rather than the other way round. Simply treat it like any framed artwork: It is designed to be wall-hung or simply placed on top of a cabinet.

Designed in The Netherlands, our device features interchangeable pieces of geometric art, carved from solid materials. You can therefore change the artwork at a later stage or choose for complimentary works. It is set up for all the major streaming services and operated via your smartphone, keeping things as simple as possible. Each unit works great on its own, but can be paired up wirelessly for stereo-separation or a multi-speaker setup, for even better results. It is also designed with future upgradability in mind, to ensure a longer life.

Why it’s special (the long-version)

An explanation, for the technically-inclined.

Traditional loudspeakers are large and bulky, and typically have to be placed away from walls to sound their best, thereby dominating a room — visually and physically. In contrast, our fresh design offers first-class wireless-audio performance and an elegant form-factor. But, more importantly, it offers this performance from easy-to-accommodate positions on/against your wall.

Our unique and registered ‘frustum-shaped’ enclosure (a truncated pyramid but with thin side-edges) was conceived primarily to provide our devices with an aesthetically-pleasing thin ‘floating’-edge. However, when we combined this distinct shape with our special ‘low-Q closed-box’ low-frequency system, we achieved several acoustical benefits. These include:

  • A phase-coherent first wave-front for punchier and more natural bass
  • Up to 6 dB of extra headroom for lower distortion and better dynamics
  • Less excitation of room modes for a smoother in-room frequency response
  • Near elimination of standing-waves in the enclosure, thereby reducing distortion even further
