LIVING ROOM LIFESTYLE SOUND BARS PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT POLK AUDIO WOODBOURNE FORM AND FUNCTION MEET IN RETRO BLUETOOTH SPEAKER The Polk Audio Woodbourne speaker takes its name from the area of Baltimore where Frank Zappa, Philip Glass and Billie Holiday have their roots. With just four buttons on the front of the speaker, its design reflects that tradition. » HALL 32.2 / STAND 205 UNIQUE SELLING POINTS ELEGANCE CONNECTIVITY ASSURANCE Mahogany chassis reminiscent of 1950s ergonomic design, minimal interface and discreet, clean lines. Connect through AirPlay, USB, Bluetooth or ethernet. A five-year guarantee on parts and repairs. PIONEER SBX RANGE Pioneer is releasing a new range of speaker bars at this year’s IFA. The speakers have been designed with owners of flat screen TVs in mind. The high-end models support Miracast and are discreet and slick. » HALL 1.2 / STAND 201 UNIQUE SELLING POINTS WIRELESS The speaker bars are not only Bluetooth-enabled but can also act as transmitters and link up to other Bluetooth-enabled devices. Wi-fi capability comes as standard, as does the new YouTube ‘Send to TV’ function. This allows videos to be played on a TV, through the speaker bar. IMPRESSIVE SOUND QUALITY The speaker bars incorporate wideband, fullrange speaker drive technology, which reduces distortion. Integrated subwoofers or a wireless subwoofer bring additional bass boost to the bars. EASE OF USE As well as Bluetooth, the SBX range allows a straightforward single cable connection. 48
