Monitor Audio launches S150 Bluetooth speaker

Those familiar with Monitor Audio's Award-winning S200 wireless speaker will notice a few similarities with the new model.

That's because the S150 is effectively an S200 without the AirPlay and DLNA functionality.

It keeps aptX Bluetooth 4.0, a USB socket for charging iDevices and a 3.5mm input for other sources. You also get the same choice of finishes - black or white.
