Croon Audio's Original Bluetooth speakers promise not to creak while they're cranked

Odds are that we've all had a speaker system which can't take the heat: turn up the volume and there's an unintentional dubstep remix as the waaahs and wubwubs of distortion and vibration overtake whatever we actually meant to hear. Croon Audio is only just getting into speakers, but its Original system makes clean sound the order of the day: along with the retro, anti-distortion fiberboard design, the Bluetooth audio box has isolation cones at the corners that Croon hopes will leave any shake, rattle and rolling to Big Joe Turner and Bill Haley. That's good news for a small enclosure with two 15W drivers and a Class D amp inside. A 3.5mm jack still exists if wireless audio compression gets on the nerves as well. The speakers are already selling now in a classic black for $200, although $230 will net a slightly livelier gray or white, and $235 lands an attention-getting (if limited edition) red.

CROON Audio Unveils Its Sleek, Hi-Fi Audio Speaker System - The Original

The Original speaker merges unparalleled sound quality and style in CROON's newest speaker collection

Hollywood, Fla. – July 26, 2012 – CROON Audio, a leading innovator of BluetoothTM home speaker systems, announces the debut of the company's first speaker, The Original sound system. Through the easy-to-use, one-touch pairing procedure, The Original makes connecting to Bluetooth devices easier than ever, while at the same time providing unmatched wireless sound performance and design.

By merging modern electronics with wood craftsmanship of the highest degree, the compact 10.5" x 8" x 3.5" speaker forges a seamless balance between contemporary and traditional styles that will amp up the volume of both style and music without the cluttered wired mess. The housing of the speaker is made from 8mm MDF (Medium-Density fiberboard) manufactured wood which allows for VLD (Very Low Distortion) technology when listening to music at a high volume. The Original's speaker features two 2.5" forward facing Full Range Drivers which have been matched to an acoustic amplifier allowing 15 watts per channel and a clear sounding Class D amp. The isolation cones placed strategically in a tripod pattern at the bottom corners of the sound system reduce the vibration frequencies and provide the most stable supporting structure regardless of the surface on which it rests.

The Original will reproduce music wirelessly from any device with Bluetooth or directly through the 3.5 mm connection so it can be used as a premium external speaker system for iPad, Kindle, a laptop computer, electric guitar and more. To complement the company's sleek, button less design, users are able to control the speaker's functionality with their connected touch screen device. Eliminating the volume control component from the inside of the casing reduces the noise in the circuit, allowing the music to be heard more clearly. "I started off with a need for phenomenal sound in a small form factor," says The Original innovator Raul Chinda. "I wanted to create something so amazing that it would stop you in your tracks and make you listen to that song in a way you've never heard it before."
