Sceptre unveils its Android-powered Sound Bar 2.1 speaker system

Sceptre Android speakers 1

I love my third party Android spin off products, especially the mini Android dongles for your TV. But if only someone would throw some quality speakers into the mix with that, then you’d really have my attention. And that’s exactly what Sceptre has done with its new SB301524W Sound Bar 2.1.

The Sceptre Sound Bar 2.1 is an all-in-one system which turns your traditional HDTV into an Android powered Smart TV, which certainly makes a lot of sense if you’re already in the market for some decent living room speakers.

But the real added benefit here is that you can access the Google Play Store, and all of your associated music files, games, movies, etc, and play them directly through these speakers and your TV, without the need for any additional hardware. If, like me, you’re tired of plugging an HDMI cable and audio jack into your tablet every time you want to stream something in your living room, then this product seems like an excellent solution.

Sceptre has included plenty of functionality, and it looks pretty sleek too.

For audio hardware you’re looking at two 2-inch 18 Watt active speakers with an additional 3-inch 35 Watt 65Hz – 250 Hz subwoofer to take care of the low end. The system comes with two stereo RCA inputs, one 3.5mm stereo jack, and a Coaxial input for digital audio.

As for the Android part, there’s just a single core Cortex A9 clocked at 1 GHz accompanied by a Mali 400 GPU, which is a little bit weak by modern standards, but should still be enough for music and films, which after all is the product’s main purpose. The system also comes equipped with 1GB RAM, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, support for 720p and 1080p output resolutions, and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, which seems to have everything covered.

But a word of caution; the system only comes equipped with 4GB of internal memory, which certainly isn’t enough for a decent music collection, let alone a selection of your favourite movies. Fortunately there is a 32GB microSD card slot and USB connectivity which supports an additional 2TB of extra space, so external hard drives or memory cards should be a work around for any memory issues, but that’s obviously an added expense.

If you’re interested in the SB301524W sound bar, it is currently available for 9.99 at Walmart, Amazon, Tiger Direct, Sears, K-Mart and NewEgg. Hopefully we’ll see a few more Android powered audio products in the future.

Sceptre Turns your Big Screen HDTV into a Smart TV with a Sound Bar 2.1 with Android™

Sound Bar 2.1 with built-in subwoofer and Android Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 enables users to connect to the internet and download apps from Google Play Store

City of Industry, CA – June 27, 2013 – Sceptre, superior manufacturers of world class LED and LCD HDTVs and PC displays, unveils the SB301524W Speaker Sound Bar 2.1 with built-in subwoofer, Android platform and Wi-Fi connection to turn your ordinary HDTV into a smart TV through plug and play technology, enabling users to access movies, music, apps and games.

Sceptre’s newest Sound Bar 2.1 includes Android’s interactive media operating system to create the perfect entertainment atmosphere with the support of Wi-Fi and Android Platform. With the Android OS, users can access the Google Play™ Store to download thousands of songs, games, movies and apps to enhance their TV experience.

The SB301524W Sound Bar 2.1 incorporates a variety of technologies and components to produce room filling surround sound, including a 35W subwoofer with passive radiator, SRS WOW HD™ audio technology and dual front facing speakers. SRS WOW HD, developed by DTS technologies, improves the audio by widening the sound field, raising the vertical sound image and retrieving lost audio information during the mixing process to create a more natural surround sound experience.

Elegantly designed to complement HDTVs 42-inches and above, the SB301524W sound bar features a trendy touch sensor control panel to easily adjust volume, preset modes or sound sources, an auto-dimming LED screen that displays current settings and a remote control compatible with multiple Sceptre HDTVs. It is also the ideal replacement for expensive and bulky surround sound systems, eliminating unsightly wires, expensive adaptors and the need to have a separate subwoofer.

“The Sound Bar 2.1 with built-in subwoofer and Android Platform turns your traditional HDTV into a Smart TV at a fraction of the cost,” said Cathy Chou, Sceptre’s vice president of operations. “Our newest addition to the family of sound bars not only enhances your HDTV experience, but also brings people closer by giving you access to the same applications as a computer, including Skype, Facebook, Instant Messenger and more.”

To enhance the overall experience, Sceptre offers an optional smart remote control that replicates the functionality of a traditional mouse and keyboard. The SB301524W sound bar can be easily wall-mounted using only two screws and is currently available for 9.99 at Walmart, Amazon, Tiger Direct, Sears, K-Mart and NewEgg.

Eyes on with the Loewe AirSpeaker, premium Airplay speaker with a premium price to match

 Eyes on with the Loewe AirSpeaker, premium Airplay speaker with a premium price to match

The Loewe AirSpeaker has been on the market for a little while now, but at the recent IFA Global Press Conference in Sardinia, the German manufacturer was on hand to show it off. Airplay compatible speakers aren’t uncommon, but Loewe is a premium brand in the world of home electronics, and the AirSpeaker is no exception.

As you might expect from a premium product, good design is at the forefront. The AirSpeaker is supposed to look good in the home, as well as provide killer sound. There’s no docking solution either, as the name implies, the AirSpeaker relies solely on Airplay. There’s actually very little in the way of anything at all on the exterior. The rear of the unit houses the only 4 buttons along side the power cable which sits at the bottom, slightly recessed. Otherwise, it’s all speaker.

Sadly, it wasn’t possible on the show floor to get a good demonstration of the sound quality, so it remains an eyes on only. As a premium product, it also comes with a premium price. In the UK one of these will set you back a pretty hefty £499.99. That’s a lot, whichever way you look at it, but then the AirSpeaker is a high end product.

The AirSpeaker wasn’t the only thing at the event of note from Loewe, though. During their press briefing they teased a forthcoming portable speaker system — the Loewe Speaker 2go — that will have Airplay as one of its streaming options. A release timeframe wasn’t provided, but since the event was linked to the annual IFA show in Berlin, it’s not unreasonable to think we might see it there in September.

It’s a lot of money to spend on a speaker, but these sit nicely at the high end of the market alongside the offerings from Bowers & Wilkins. So, anyone interested by either of these? Be sure to share your thoughts with us in the comments below.
