Astell&Kern ACRO BE100 Hi-Fi Wireless Bluetooth Speaker

ACRO BE100 is the result of Astell&Kern's advances in audio technology evolved over decades. The new ACRO BE100 Bluetooth Wireless Speaker delivers superior room-filling, hi-fi calibre stereo sound that belies its compact profile. Boasting a dedicated 32-bit DAC and support for the latest 24-bit hi-res quality wireless streaming codecs, ACRO BE100 is the Bluetooth Speaker of choice for audiophiles and music enthusiasts alike.

Sporting Astell&Kern’s recognisable signature angled design, influenced by the reflective interplay of shadow and light, the ACRO BE100 makes a striking design statement that can seamlessly fit into any living space. The triangular shapes on front metal-grille mesh compliments the premium faux leather finish of main unit.

Declaring proper hi-fi sound credentials, ACRO BE100 arrives with an onboard 32-bit high-quality DAC (digital-to-analogue converter). This dedicated DAC is based on the technology from the Astell&Kern award-winning portable digital audio player range. The separate internal circuitry ensures it has the capabilities to deliver a superior and detailed audio performance beyond its rivals.

To help realise this class-leading sonic performance, the mid/bass driver and twin tweeters have been custom-built. The 4-inch mid-bass cone is made from ultra-durable (yet lightweight) Kevlar fabric to improve response speed and timing, and to provide a more accurate bass sound. The two silk dome tweeters produce crystal-clear high frequencies.

Poorly designed amplifiers can produce clipping sounds at maximum volume. Employing renowned expertise in amp design technology, Astell&Kern have developed a Class-D amplifier that guarantees consistent sound quality without distortion even at top volume. In addition, dynamic range control (DRC) is used to protect the speaker unit as it hits maximum output power.

The latest high-definition wireless connectivity options are covered with ACRO BE100 boasting Bluetooth® 5.0, providing greater range and a more stable wireless connection when streaming from a compatible device such as a smartphone, tablet or laptop. Support for 24-bit aptX™ HD (48 khz) and LDAC (96 khz) codecs, offering the best possible wireless sound quality.
