Astell&Kern Acro BE100 Wireless Speaker
Astell&Kern is known for its high-end audio players aimed at audiophiles who most commonly rely on wired connections. With the Acro BE100, they're aiming to bring that same sound quality to the wireless space. As the world's first Bluetooth speaker to support both the aptX HD and LDAC codecs, it's built for high-res audio, with a 32-bit Hi-Fi DAC, a 55W Class-D amp, and a custom 4" Kevlar woofer and 1.5" silk dome tweeter. The body is made from a combination of metal, wood, and premium PU leather, with a faceted front panel to add visual interest and a pronounced, top-mounted volume dial.
