Aston Martin Zygote is a £2500 wireless speaker

We're more used to car audio referring to in-car systems but now Aston Martin is aiming to bring some of its auto knowhow straight to the audio market with the new Zygote wireless speaker.

The two-foot wide speaker, which loosely resembles a car wing mirror, aims to deliver an “unparalleled and extremely powerful sound performance”.

There are analogue and digital connections - USB, RCA and digital coaxial - as well as Apple AirPlay, DLNA and wi-fi direct. A compatible control app for Android and iOS devices affords you basic control and access to some audio settings.

The speaker features Class D amplifiers that kick out 240 watts, alongside Audiomoda’s DSP platform, which claims to adjust audio settings according to your room.

The Zygote will come in three 'official Aston Martin colours': morning frost white, Madagascar orange and onyx black.

All that audio technology and styling doesn’t come cheap though - the Aston Martin Zygote will set you back £2500. Find out more on the Audiomoda website.

Max is a staff writer for What Hi-Fi?'s sister site, TechRadar, in Australia. But being the wonderful English guy he is, he helps out with content across a number of Future sites, including What Hi-Fi?. It wouldn't be his first exposure to the world of all things hi-fi and home cinema, as his first role in technology journalism was with What Hi-Fi? in the UK. Clearly he pined to return after making the move to Australia and the team have welcomed him back with arms wide open.
