Elipson Audio announces "new and improved" Music Centre

It's part of the French manufacturer's bid to deliver an "integrated audio solution" and a "hub for all wired or wireless music sources" as music streaming becomes increasingly popular.

In addition to the inclusion of Bluetooth, the £900 Music Centre incorporates a DAB/DAB+/RDS FM radio, a CD player, a touch-sensitive control panel and a luminosity sensor.

A switching amplification solution provided by Bang & Olufsen ICEpower has also been used in the construction of Elipson's new Music Centre, which delivers 2 x 120W at 4ohms.

French designer Jean-Yves Le Porcher has been responsible for crafting the exterior of the new Music Centre, which is now available to purchase – along with a £90 floor stand accessory.
