Details: Wharfedale ,Britain’s most famous loudspeaker brand, with an audio engineering heritage stretching back to 1932, proudly present the DS-2 stereo Bluetooth speaker system delivering hi-fi sound in miniaturised form – perfect to place on a desk, table or shelf. The DS-2 is based on the now-discontinued DS-1, a similarly diminutive pair of Bluetooth speakers widely acknowledged as the best available under £200. The DS-2 reconstructs the original DS-1 concept with an all-new design, delivering even better sound-per-pound performance. In contrast to most Bluetooth speakers, the DS-2 is a pair of proper two-way hi-fi speakers shrunk to desktop size, standing just 190mm high, 120mm wide and 140mm deep. Each DS-2 contains two high-performance drivers: a 19mm silk dome tweeter and a 75mm mid/bass driver. The mid/bass driver’s cone is fashioned from woven polypropylene, chosen for its ideal combination of lightness, strength and low coloration. Both drive units are protected by specially designed metal grilles, while a rear-firing port augments low-frequency performance to provide bass that’s surprisingly deep and punchy for the speakers’ size. Inside the master speaker nestles new-generation, high-performance digital amplification outputting 2x15W continuous and 2x30W peak. This drives the treble and mid/bass units via a high-quality crossover network containing select audio-grade components – superior to the cheap, single-component crossovers used by many compact speakers. Bluetooth provides simple wireless pairing with smartphones, tablets, PCs and Macs, complete with support for the sonically superior aptX codec. Flexibility is further enhanced by a 3.5mm analogue stereo input and supplied cable – this is positioned on the side of the master speaker, along with the volume and pairing controls. Their sound is impressively agile and articulate for their size, delivering engaging musicality and spacious stereo soundstage that Bluetooth price-rivals cannot muster. Aesthetically beautiful curved cabinet with high-gloss finish offset with tactile leatherette. Ideal for anyone seeking small quality Bluetooth speakers for phone,tablet, PC or Mac.
