The Vision thing: Loewe details new home audio system11 October 2011
The new, all-in-one Loewe SoundVision is an independently functioning sound system that is network-compatible and can be wirelessly integrated into an existing home entertainment network.
Features include a newly developed user interface that allows for simple control, either via the 7.5-inch multi-touch display or the Loewe Assist remote control. Playback from internet radio, CD, iDevice or FM radio is possible, while six built-in speakers (including two integrated subwoofers) are said to deliver superb audio quality.
The standalone system can be connected to a home network via LAN, WLAN or Powerline, allowing users to access music files saved on the network. Recommendations for new songs can be received via Aupeo!, while integrated music recognition service Gracenote supplies information about the title or artist for a given piece of music.
There is also the option of sending music directly to the system from a mobile phone via Bluetooth. Music can also be sent from the SoundVision to compatible Bluetooth headphones.
The unit’s housing is available in aluminium silver or aluminium black, and conceals the CD drive with its slot-loading mechanism. In addition, the interchangeable side insets can be adapted effortlessly to personal taste, and there is almost no limit to the range of colours from which the consumer can choose.
