Q2XL internet radio
Giant version of Q2 cube radio is designed to stop people stealing it

Armour Home has expanded its Q2 range of internet radios with this new giant-sized model, the Q2XL, available now for £800.

It's a 1m cube, inside which are packed four powerful 30cm, 100W drive units and the resulting sound, claims Armour, is "quite phenomenal".

Like its smaller sibling, it's simple to use. After programming your four favourite stations via the USB connection, just tilt the radio up or down to change the volume.

To select a different station, just push the Q2XL over onto another of its four sides. And to turn it off, just get a friend to help you lift it onto its front.

For consumer convenience, the multiple, rechargeable onboard car batteries deliver up to 20 hours of "groundshaking music", it is claimed.

More after the break

We've managed to get a photo of an early development mock-up of the Q2XL inside Armour's top-secret R&D lab.

Glenn McClelland, Armour's managing director and brand manager for all Q2 projects, says: "We've received a lot of feedback from Q2 owners telling us how pleased they are with their purchase, but also complaints that it's so cute and appealing, people keep walking off with them!

"The answer to this problem is the new Q2XL. It's designed to be too big and heavy to steal, and therefore perfect for all commercial applications."

The Q2XL comes in the same striking black, white, green, pink and blue finishes as the original Q2.
