Roth expands Oli range with Powa-5 Bluetooth active monitor

Roth Powa-5

One of the speakers has an 80W amp built into it, and this is connected to the second passive speaker using the supplied cable.

Connectivity includes a pair of RCA analogue phono inputs, one 3.5mm stereo jack, two optical digital inputs and an integrated Bluetooth receiver.

There are also two USB outputs to provide power to mobile devices such as a smartphone or tablet, and a subwoofer output. A remote control comes as standard.

Roth says the Powa-5 can be used to boost the sound of a TV or computer, or as bedroom or kitchen speakers.

"The Powa-5 design is a compelling fusion of cutting-edge technology and good, old-fashioned high-quality audio," says Roth AV founder James Roth.
