Smart sound speakers

With a wireless smart speaker system, your favourite songs, podcasts and radio stations can literally follow you around the house.

Using your WiFi network or Bluetooth, smart speakers can receive audio from your smartphone, tablet, computer or home theatre system. You can control everything using a free-to-download app.

Using Smart sound speakers you can play the same song in every room or a different song in each space. And because you can connect to digital music libraries, compatible CD players, radios and even turntables, there’s no limit to what you can listen to. If you have a smart sound bar, subwoofer and rear speakers you can also create a virtual surround sound experience. Start with one speaker and grow your system as you like.
