Users can connect to the G2 via Bluetooth and NFC technology provides instant pairing for supporting devices. Each unit can remember up to eight different devices.

The G2 can be wirelessly paired to another G2 speaker for stereo sound with double the power.

The Cambridge Audio G2 is available from October in black and champagne finishes for £100.

But being the wonderful English guy he is, he helps out with content across a number of Future sites, including What Hi-Fi?.

Clearly he pined to return after making the move to Australia and the team have welcomed him back with arms wide open.
