IFA 2012: Monster adds wireless option and new finishes to its Clarity HD Model One speakers

null

Monster has brought wireless capability to its Clarity HD Model One powered speakers, complementing their built-in iPod dock with StreamCast connectivity using a plug-in adapter kit.

The StreamCast HDT Transmitter/Receiver kit, which has a Euro price of €190, connects to a computer at the transmitter end, while the receiver slots into a dedicated port, also able to take a Bluetooth adapter, on the £650 speakers.

It can deliver up to four wireless music streams in up to 12 different rooms over a distance of 30m.

The speakers themselves have RCA phono, 6.3mm and 3.5mm stereo inputs as well as that top-mounted iPod dock, and use digital power amplification to drive the 16.5cm bass unit and 25mm tweeter.

A switchable treble filter can be used to adjust the sound, and a remote control is also provided.

Monster says 'The Model One is ideal for use in the living room, study, bedroom or kitchen, as well as for in-home or professional music studio use.'

Previously available in a choice of 'dark bronze', 'liquid mercury silver' and automotive-grade gloss yellow and red, the speakers will now also be sold in a choice of gloss black or white.
